  • Which brush should I use?
  • Why so many different brushes?
  • Which is the best brush for my work?

These are questions that are often asked of us. The reality is that an experienced WFP window cleaner will be able to clean most windows with most brush types. However each brush type does perform or feel differently on the glass. Certain brushes are better suited to particular window types or operator technique. Often which brush works best for you will ultimately be down to trial and error to decide your own preference.

The brush summary below and the more detailed brush guide will help you narrow down your choice based on the different fundamental characteristics of the brush, the type of work you are doing and the ‘feel’ of each brush.

Are you new to WFP window cleaning and have no previous brush experience?

In that case we would recommend selecting the Ultimate Medium-Soft brush if using cold water or the Ultimate Stiff brush if using hot water. These are great brushes to start with and will give you a point of reference to then compare against our other brush choices in the future.
