    What brushes do you all use for really filthy first cleans or dirty fascia cleans?
    Do you carry on with your maintenance brush or switch it out for a more effective brush? If you do change it what do you find works best on stubborn dirt?

    also use a white bristled brush if you can!!nothing as bad as black bristles sticking out of the brackets etc,or up the ladder you go,and there a pain to pull out,like pulling teeth

    Never thought about the colour of the bristles. Good point Mark. Often found odd bristles sticking out of frames and they are sometimes difficult to remove.

    Thankyou all.
    Now spring is here I usually start to pick up a few of these type jobs from existing customers who often had them done last spring so are not that bad. With these I normally just carry on with same brush as for windows. However, I occasionally pick up new ones some of which are really badly soiled, and my regular brush strugles. Wanted to get an idea of what works well.

    Your suggestions are helpful. Thanks again

    Same brush for everything, Xline mono, I use older ones for firsts etc and newer for regular cleaning.
