Brush Types For Sweepers & Scrubbers

Sweepers and scrubbers at SRS Cleaning Equipment are ideal for any large-scale commercial and industrial space that requires regular cleaning.

We offer multiple kinds of floor scrubber brushes and each offer their own advantages for specific applications based on their bristle types. 

Choosing brushes for your floor scrubber is an easy process with SRS Cleaning Equipment and is essential for your machine to function efficiently for both wet and dry surfaces.

Here is a summary of brush types suitable for floor sweepers and scrubbers.

Brushes for sweepers

All ride on and walk behind sweepers have standard bristle side brooms for flicking debris into the path of the main broom.

There are two sweeper main type brooms, one has slightly larger gaps between the bristles which means they are good for light dust and debris. The other has a much higher number of bristles which is designed for sites that have high levels of dust as the extra bristles help lift and contain the dust in the sweeping process.

Brushes for scrubber dryers 

Scrubber dryers have three options that are suitable.


Nylon bristles are ideal for everyday cleaning and have excellent brush life. They are especially good on factory floors that present chemical, oil or lubricant residue. Nylons also performs well on rough surfaces as the bristles flex into any ridges or gaps, pulling the dirt out. The durability of nylons also means less maintenance and less frequent replacement.

Due to being a more flexible material, nylon is longer lasting in scrubbing applications and won’t damage any type of floor surface.


Tynex brushes are very aggressive and great for floor cleaning applications that require a deeper clean with more stubborn marks and dirt present. Tynex brushes are made of carbon and have stiff bristles that don’t bend.  

Pad drivers 

Pad drivers allow you to put various colour pads on. The pads range from red (soft pad for painted surfaces) to black, which is a more abrasive pad for removing tyre marks and stains from warehouses and factory floors.  

At SRS Cleaning Equipment, we are here to help you hire or purchase a sweeper or scrubber dryer that is customised and suitable for your specific needs.
