    I tend to change my brush every 8 weeks.

    I currently use the extreme standard from gardiner.

    Just wondered now often you guys change your brushes.

    Have a small mountain here of brushes again lol.

    Your regular maintenance brush should always look clean, the brush stock may be covered in cobwebs and dirt etc (you can always wipe that over) so every week at least, or few days, or hours or even after 1 very dirty job. I'm not going to be spending longer than is needed on a job.

    Any how I wouldn’t be confident cleaning with a soiled brush and I would also have to slow right down and rinse, rinse, rinse.

    Stock is always clean, they are cleaned between houses.

    8 months?

    Surely the brush must have slowed down alot by then.

    You buy a new brush every 8 weeks ????

    Usually buy two or three at a time. Then reorder from gardiner, or I may buy locally from another windy if I am desperate.

    But yeah on the whole. I change the brush on the first of the month then 8 weeks later swap it out.

    To be honest if I had to buy a brush every 8 weeks I would reconsider where I purchased them from .
    Thats just me tbh I only do 1 to 2 days per week though so I may find il nedd to do it later on .

    8 weeks lol. Like the others have said more like 8 months with an extreme, mine might actually be older than that.
