SCRUBS are designed to bring the TRAD experience into a Water Fed Brush i.e. sometimes you need to use a more aggressive agitation method to get debris off the window, into solution in the water, and off the glass.
There are 3 ways to agitate glass – SCRATCH, SCRAPE, or GRAB.
NYLON BRISTLE brushes SCRATCH at the debris on a window – bristles are ideally at 30-40º to the window on the outer, and at 90º to the window in the center, for maximum agitation. If a brush is too stiff, or too soft, you will not get an effective ‘scratch’ from the bristle tips (it is the bristle tips that do the agitation)
BOARS HAIR brushes GRAB at the debris on a window. Once wet, the boars hair becomes soft and flexes on the glass. The edges of the bristles have a high friction co-efficient, and they drag across the glass, grabbing the debris in this agitation action.
A TRAD Window Cleaner will also carry MICROFIBER, WHITE NON-SCRATCH PAD, BRONZE WOOL, STEEL WOOL, MAGIC ERAZER and more, to increase the efficiency of the AGITATION Phase of a window clean.
The ultimate tool was SCRAPERS, or BLADES, that SCRAPE the glass. By running a blade angled at 30-40º off the glass, parallel along the glass surface, the blade will get ‘under the debris’ and lift it without scratching the glass.
Using our WINDOW WEAPON Technology incorporate SCRUBS to maximize the SCRAPE and GRAB on RADIAL BRUSHES.
5 SCRAPE SCRUBS are : White Non-Scratch Pad, Steel Wool, Bronze Wool, Stainless Mesh, and Blue Metal.
3 GRAB SCRUBS are: Microfiber, Green Rubber, and Magic Eraser.
The top bristle blade of all REACH-iT Brushes are there to break the surface tension of the glass, guaranteeing a water squeegee effect, ensuring all HYDROPHOBIC glass behaves like HYDROPHILIC on the down stroke. The bottom bristle blade to pull the dirty water off the glass on the down stroke.
All SCRUBS can be detached and re-attached to the double-hook Velcro base plate so you can re-use them and interchange them, rather than making them one-time-use.
