Roof brush

It's time to do a rubber roof wash/treatment for our 32 forest river. Any recommendations on a good brush/mop to use to make the job a bit easier? Thanks!

I use just a regular O-Cedar sponge mop and a bucket of clear water. One side has a scrubber side and the other is for picking up water.

I love the Hub City Brush handles and wash heads. Very soft and very durable.

The wife went shopping and found a car wash kit at SAM's CLUB. It had a soft bristled car brush with sliding extension handle. Looked unworthy in the package...but turned out to be great. Just did my roof this past Monday.... the brush worked great and it fit in the wash bucket much easier than the other items I took on top to try. This device made the roof an easy scrub....will recommend it to others.

There are many good suggestions: Things I have used include assorted rag mops and a "Van Wash" brush, this is a generic brush from an auto parts store, though I have never used this feature it has a "Flow through" design so you can hook a garden hose to it (I may do it that way next time).

The handle is an "extension" type, fully extended it is a full length mop handle, I like it way better than a mop.

One brush I have not tried that I would like to is a FULLER BRUSH Company window washer's brush. But frankly I do not see it as being an improvement over the van-wash brush.

I've always used Dawn (the blue stuff) and a standard sponge mop. For stubborn spots I use a soft bristle hand brush. Roof comes out looking snow white.

Years ago I picked up a "Van Wash" brush at an Auto Department/parts store to help in washing the vehicles I had then.. This brush has the following features.

It is a soft bristle brush, Like all car wash brushes.

It has a "Flow through" design where you hook a hose to the handle and it delivers water to teh middle of the brush, I never use that feature.

The handle is a Telescoping design (Quarter turn, pull it out and quarter turn again the other way and it is a "Full length" mop handle)

That's the one I use.
