Types of brushes and surfaces
Depending on the task at hand, you’ll want to get the proper brush proven to work as effectively as possible with the surface that needs to be cleaned. Not only is this a question of cleaning performance, it’s also a question of having a brush that lasts its full lifetime while still maintaining its proper function. It’s also important that you match the right brush to the cleaning surface because if not, it can actually be pretty harmful to your bathroom, kitchen, or another surface (depends on what you’re cleaning).
Even though the problem, when overlooked, can cost you a lot of money in repairs, simply paying attention and matching the right surface with the correct brush can save you loads in the long run – even if you spend a bit more on a variety of different brushes.
Poly brush – Perfect for cleaning your bathroom floor and tile with grout lines, the poly brush should be used for general scrubbing.
Nylon brush – For rough, concrete-floored surfaces or parking lots, this brush is highly-resistant to abrasive substances and can last for years.
Scrub grit brush – This can be used on tile, non-slip epoxy finishes, and terrazzo. It is highly durable for rough surfaces.
Strip grit brush – If you need to get something off of hard floors like grease, you’ll need an aggressive scrubbing brush, like the strip grit brush. This type works well with tile.
Power source and runtime
When deciding which power scrubber is best for you, you’ll need to factor in the power source being used and needed by your particular situation. Some of the scrubbers are cordless and run on battery power. Knowing the length of time it lasts and how long it takes to recharge – if rechargeable batteries are also available – are very important factors that you should consider when making the purchase.
With speed, you’ll be safe if you simply choose a power scrubber with 300 RPM, with which you can then clean off soap scum, baked on grime, grout, dirt, and so much more off of shower doors, baths, ovens, tiles, and so much more. But don’t rely on the rotating speed alone. The power is also of great importance. If a brush rotates at a speed of 300 RPM, but the scrubber itself is less powerful than a scrubber with even less rotating speed, the former will most probably be less effective than the latter.
Other features to consider
Although investing in a power scrubber isn’t the biggest purchase of the year, it should have a lifespan where you will be using it for quite a while (if its performance is up to par). That means that you’ll want to make sure that it’s the perfect power scrubber for you and the tasks at hand. Going a bit deeper into some research, you can see which features will work best with your power scrubber in relation to your situation.
From handle and ease of use to being waterproof or not, there are also a few other features that you will want to look into before you make the investment in a power scrubber. You’ll want to know how to store your power scrubber so you can easily know how to care for your power scrubber in between uses. You should also be aware of how resistant it is to mildew and bacteria, for the future.
For example, the FRUITEAM Electric Spin Scrubber might be extremely convenient because of its cordless feature and lasts up to one hour, but if you’re looking for a power scrubber that reaches the depth of the pool, you might not want this handheld tool. The MEEARO Electric Spin Scrubber , for example, reaches 43.3 inches and can easily get to any crevice at the floor!
Is cylindrical scrubbing different from disk scrubbing? The main difference between the two is, while disk scrubbing is best suited for removing tough stains due to their aggressive pads or brushes, cylindrical scrubbing, on the other hand, offers a much faster-scrubbing speed and is quite suited for cleaning small surfaces.
