Do you use a pad attachment ?


Recommended Posts

When i started out cleaning a couple years ago i purchased one of da components bronze wool pads. Also tried the gardiner scrubbers. Anyway havent used either very much after trialing them. I found them a but heavy and also restrictive to get into tight spots. Curious on some feeedback which members use one as standard, and which go without - maybe i'm not well enough versed in the technique of using them (i tend to scrub off tough stains using my brush corner).

We just use the Gardiner scraper, without pad, scrub the offending marks then scrape off. The really bad ones we tend to do a couple of windows then go back.

If you are using just the corner of the brush there is a high chance of scratching the glass.

I did a first clean on a dance studio for a custy of mine that she has just opened, they hadn't been cleaned in ages and there was dried on egg on one of the windows, wish I had my da pad with me I had to use a thick wad of bronze wool over the corner of my brush took about 5-10 minutes to shift it was a ground floor window just a bit higher up and I didn't have my telescopic ladder with me.

would be ideal if you could just clip them on - unscrewing and adding with my exceed hoseless setup is a bit awkward

I agree the pads and scraper attachments simply aren't practical to have on all the time as they get in the way and hinder been able to clean all windows especially windows very close to soffits over extensions and so on.

I use the quick-loq water fed pad that Gardiner's sell. Just swap it out for the brush when needed. Found it brilliant for cleaning black mould off uPVC frames and also on some stubborn marks on glass. Great on minging first cleans.

I couldn't get my brush adaptor off so I could remove my scraper, in the end I just cut it off and use the edge of my brush if need be.

I got one of these recently, not used yet. Also thought might be good on conny roofs

I've used it a lot on the polycarbonate roofs and found it excellent. Bought another three pads recently. Use it with fan jets.
