You are faced with two equally true, yet tragically contradictory, facts of life. On the one hand, you need to make sure your bathroom floor is clean. Nobody wants to go into the bathroom in one’s home and find it as sticky and unsightly as, well, a public bathroom. On the other hand, there is no denying that getting down on your hands and knees, holding your nose, straining your back, and scrubbing away doesn’t sound like a fun time.
Thankfully, power scrubbers cut through that tedium as easily as they cut through pollutants and bacteria on your bathroom floor.
Why You Need a Power Scrubber
As the name would imply, a power scrubber is a motorized scrubber that can be used to clean floors, sinks, toilets, and other surfaces. Its motorized scrubbers can clean in a quicker, more efficient, and less time and labor-intensive way than would be possible by hand. Beyond these basic similarities lurk myriad differences, however, as bathroom power scrubbers come in all shapes and sizes, with everything from handheld scrubbers to longer handled versions making our list.
As demonstrated below, some power scrubbers are handheld and can fit into every corner of your bathroom for deep corner and crevice cleaning action. On the flip side, there are bathroom power scrubbers that are larger and more geared towards cleaning entire floor areas. The former can be great for those looking to clean bathroom fixtures, while the latter can be an excellent choice for cleaning not just your bathroom floor, but the flooring in your kitchen and any hardwood floors you may have as well.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at 10 of the top power scrubbers for bathrooms on the market.
List of the Best Bath Power Scrubbers
1. Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber
One of the most overlooked elements of power scrubbers is just how noisy they can be. Sure, you want to shorten the time it takes to clean your bathroom floor, but an hour or two with a loud power scrubber can feel like an eternity. Thankfully, the Homitt hums along silently, with its noiseless scrubbing technology being a big point in its favor.
There are many more points that help make the Homitt one of the premiere entries on this list. For one thing, it features an innovative collapsible design that makes it far easier to store than other power scrubbers. That’s not just good news for those looking to save storage space. The collapsible design allows the Homitt to be extended and used to scrub floors from a standing position before being collapsed to enable you to do close up cleaning work in sinks, toilets, and other surfaces.
This model makes use of rechargeable batteries. That is definitely a more eco-friendly solution than non-rechargeable ones, and it gives the Homitt a consistent power supply. Those batteries give you one hour of cleaning time following three and a half hours of charging time.
This is not a scrubber that can or should be submerged in water.
As we’ll see, one of the most important features of any power scrubber are the brushes and add-ons it boasts in its favor. The Homitt boasts a round brush, corner brush, narrow brush, and wide flat brush, each of which can be snapped on and off with ease so as to facilitate different cleaning jobs.
All in all, this is an incredibly well-rounded power scrubber, and easily one of the best and most versatile offerings on this list.
2. Alldio Electric Spin Scrubber Cordless Power Scrubber
Alldio Bathroom Scrubber is another product that can be said to be good from a versatility standpoint. For one thing, it offers an extension pole and can, thus, vary greatly in size, from 28.4 inches to 41.2 inches, giving you a great range with which to work for any bathroom cleaning job.
Then there’s the fact that this boasts some of the best battery life of any unit on our list. That’s due in part to the fact that this unit makes use of a powerful 4000 mAh battery. All of that power is put to great use with 245 N·cm torque, creating a great deal of cleaning force which can help defeat even the most stubborn of stains and grout buildup.
In addition, this unit comes with three replaceable brush heads, each of which boast their own strengths.
One is an extra-wide brush that can be used to clean large, flat surface areas with a greater deal of efficiency than other brushes. The round bristle is used for cleaning bathtubs, sinks, and similar curved areas. The corner scrubber excels at cleaning out corners and crannies. Taken together, these brushes can do a great job of making sure your bathroom is spotless from floor to ceiling.
One of the most common problems with power scrubbers is the fact that they can sometimes be difficult to store. This power scrubber attempts to solve that problem by adding a strap at the end of the unit, allowing you to store the unit safely and easily in between uses.
3. Power Spin Scrubber Cleaning Brush
Many of the power scrubbers on this list opt for either a larger or smaller build. This unit does a nice job of striking a balance between those two extremes, giving you something that’s large enough to handle floors with ease, while still being small and compact enough to work with toilets and bathtubs. The result is a power scrubber that’s incredibly versatile and a great fit for anyone looking for an all-purpose scrubber with which to clean their bathroom.
One of the biggest selling points of this unit is the power it boasts. With 300 RPM, it packs quite a bit of scrubbing power into a comparatively small package. This is what makes it such a great all-around option for those looking for an all-purpose bathroom cleaner. 300 RPMs is more than enough to tackle tough dirt and grime on your bathroom floor, while the smaller design allows you to take that scrubbing power to the bathtub or toilet if need be.
That all-purpose nature is underscored by the fact that it comes with three different brush heads, each of which offers new cleaning possibilities. Add to that the fact that this power scrubber can be used in wet conditions and its status as one of the most versatile and well-rounded power scrubbers on this list is secured.
4. Revolving Products Revolver Drill Brush
This power scrubber is one of the most popular on the market, and with good reason. On the one hand, it is powerful enough to break through any gritty grimy stain, and can even take on mold and mildew buildup. On the other hand, its power drill design makes it easy to handle and use. If you have ever used a power drill before, you essentially already know how to hold and handle this power scrubber.
One bonus of that power drill design is that it allows the unit to get into areas which would otherwise be inaccessible to other power scrubbers on this list. Without a long pole, you can get up close with the stains you’re looking to obliterate, pull the drill power scrub trigger, and scrub away. On the other hand, there is a reason that we don’t commonly employ that kind of design for scrubbers intended for floor use. If you try and use this floor scrubber to scrub a big bathroom or kitchen floor, you’ll be right back to the hand cramps and back strain you were trying to avoid in the first place, albeit with a much better tool than a sponge and a bucket of water.
This is definitely a power scrubber that is built to last. It boasts a galvanized steel build and sturdy two-inch nylon bristles. The bristles expand out to a diameter of 4.5 inches when in use, giving you a good sized brush while keeping the unit compact and easy to use as a handheld scrubber.
5. Drillbrush Tile and Grout All Purpose Power Scrubber
Here, we have another power scrubber that is modeled after a power drill. If that’s what you’re looking for, Drillbrush Scrubber is a great option to consider, in no small part because it offers four fantastic drill brushes, each with their own advantages. By contrast, the aforementioned drill brush only features one brush, albeit one that extends to a large size at 4.5 inches. The brushes for this drill brush vary in size, from 1.5 inches to 4.5 inches, giving you a nice range depending on what you are looking to accomplish with your cleaning.
That said, this is another power scrubber that is better used for targeted scrubbing rather than wholesale cleaning of your entire floor. It does a great job of cleaning out grout and dirt in between tiles. It is, thus, advisable to use it for that purpose and for cleaning individual tiles.
As with the aforementioned power brush, this scrubber offers medium-stiff nylon brushes. They are incredibly durable and stand up to repeated intense use quite well.
Finally, for as powerful as the drill can be, its brushes are still soft, yet firm enough to work on surfaces such as porcelain.
If you are looking for a nice blend of power and finesse in a drill brush, this power scrubber may be a good match for your needs.
6. Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber
Here, we have a handheld scrubber, which immediately raises a few points. First, due to its small size, this is a power scrubber which is better suited for handling the little details around your bathroom rather than being tasked with cleaning the whole floor on its own. That said, the small size makes it ideal for cleaning showers, tubs, sinks, toilets, and similar features.
This unit is powered by two AA batteries which power a unit capable of 6V of power and 60 oscillations per second. The AA batteries, while not a huge concern given how common that battery type is, are still nevertheless a departure from the easier and more eco-friendly rechargeable battery options elsewhere on this list. Those batteries do still mean that it’s cordless, so this is still a highly maneuverable unit.
The Rubbermaid makes use of rubberized molding for its handle, which makes it much easier and more comfortable to hold than models that eschew this type of handle design. You can use a flat or more pointed head, depending on what you are looking to accomplish. It offers both Pulse, as well as Continuous modes of cleaning, allowing you some range, albeit with less options than offered by other units on this list.
The unit is waterproof, which is always a welcome touch.
As long as you understand what this unit is designed for, it can be used effectively.
7. Electric Spin Scrubber Turbo Powerful Cleaning Brush
This is another unit that makes use of a cordless design, and uses a rechargeable 3.6V battery that’s built into the unit to power it. The battery is quite good for one of its kind, offering you a solid 50 minutes of cleaning time once you have charged it. While this remains a maneuverable unit, its larger size means that it is designed more for floor work than the intricacies of cleaning individual bathroom fixtures as is possible with smaller entries on our list.
The brushes spin a full 360 degrees at high speed, allowing you to blast through dirt quite effectively. The handle is 41 inches long when fully extended, allowing you to reach and clean quite a bit. What’s more, the handle is so long that you can even use it outside the bathroom for other cleaning jobs such as scrubbing out air conditioning vents. This versatility helps make this offering one of the most versatile and best overall values on our list.
The good news doesn’t stop there. This power scrubber comes with four replaceable shower heads that can easily be snapped on or off, allowing you to clean with ease. The flatter brush, for example, is great for working over floor, while the stiffer cone-shaped brush can be great for cleaning out grout along corners or handling faucets.
This is an impeccably solid power scrubber. If you are looking for one on the larger side, this can be a great choice to add some power to your bathroom cleaning game.
8. EVERTOP Spray Floor Mop and Polisher
As the name implies, this option from EVERTOP is more a mop and polisher than it is the kind of handheld extendable and collapsible power scrubber some of these other options are. As a result, it is definitely not for use with smaller areas. On the flip side, its mop-like design arguably makes it one of the most effective power scrubbers on this list for dealing with floors.
It isn’t just bathroom tiling that this floor scrubber excels in cleaning, either. This power scrubber is able to take on hardwood and marble floors as well, making it a great choice for anyone looking to clean all the floors in their home with the same tool.
This mop offers an integrated polisher that polishes while you scrub, allowing you to not only clean your bathroom floor, but give it a nice sparkling sheen at the same time. It functions as a dry mop, wet mop, buffer, and polisher, giving you four great ways of cleaning your floors in one dynamic machine. The microfibers used in your mop are quite versatile, and can be safely used on vinyl, linoleum, tile, wood, laminate, marble, stone, and other surfaces.
You get good battery time with this unit, with its rechargeable batteries offering up to an hour of cleaning time per charge.
In addition, this power-scrubbing mop excels at picking up hair, grease, dirt, and dust from the floor, with its microfibers excelling in trapping small particles and cleaning them up without leaving a trace behind. The buffer polisher pads on the underside of this scrubber are quite soft and can clean without fear of scratching up your floors. The unit offers a great deal of torque, with 1000RPM worth of power, making this one of the more powerful items on our list. It isn’t exactly silent at 70 decibels while cleaning and 80 while in operation, but those numbers are still on the lower end for a power scrubber and buffer of this size and magnitude.
If you’re looking for a power scrubber that can boast raw power in scrubbing your bathroom floors clean, this intriguing scrubber/mop/buffer combo might just do the trick.
9. PowerDof Power Scrubber
From one of the largest items on our list to one of the slimmest and smallest, the PowerDof is a great choice if you are looking for a lightweight handheld power scrubber. Both its relative lightness, as well as its small size, makes it incredibly easy to maneuver, allowing you to really get into creases and hard to reach places and scrub every last inch of your bathroom clean.
Here again we have another 3.6V rechargeable battery. What sets this unit apart is its incredible battery life. Where many of these units offer somewhere between 40 to 60 minutes of battery life on a single charge, the PowerDof takes things to a whole new level by offering an impressive two hours of cleaning time per charge. If you’ve been annoyed at your power scrubber quitting on you mid-clean or don’t like having to recharge it so frequently, this would be a great alternative for you to explore.
The unit also makes use of an IPX7 waterproof design that keeps it safely sealed off in wet conditions. While you may not want to go dunking it in vats of water any time soon, it is a good alternative for handling wetter conditions such as showers and tubs, and is potentially more waterproof than some of the other items on this list.
In terms of add-ons, this unit features three brushes and a scouring pad which can be used interchangeably depending on your cleaning needs. Together, they can help you remove dirt, grout, grime, and other pollutants from every nook and cranny in your bathroom.
Last, but not least, the unit boasts a special overmolded rubber handle which affords it a more comfortable grip, which can help keep your hand from cramping up mid-clean.
10. Cuh Cordless Power Scrubber
One of the most important things to consider when purchasing a power scrubber, as we’ve seen, is versatility. It is one thing to want to buy something to help make cleaning your bathroom tiling easier, but the more that power scrubber can do, the better.
Enter this option from Cuh.
This is another cordless power scrubber. Its lightweight design pairs nicely with its ergonomic handle, making this a brush that is incredibly maneuverable, and thus great for getting into tight spots or swapping between floor and sink cleaning.
It has a moderate battery life, with anywhere from 40 to 60 minutes’ worth of scrub time on a 3.6V battery for every couple hours charged. The battery itself is rechargeable and comes with an automatic charger. You’ll want to watch the light on the charger – once it turns from green to orange, your unit is good to go. A red light means that the battery is in the process of charging.
This is another scrubber that offers differently sized brushes, allowing you to customize your scrubber to suit your needs. These brushes can handle everything from large-scale cleaning to small-scale jobs, allowing you to clean every last inch of your bathroom with ease.
The handle itself is made of soft rubber, making it easy to grip and use. The scrubber itself is on the lightweight side, which is always a plus. It features a waterproof design, making it ideal for bathroom use. In addition, this is another scrubber that works to minimize noise, allowing you to clean your bathroom without having to deal with loud engine noises echoing throughout the room.
All in all, this is a scrubber that offers a lot for its little cordless size and can be a great choice for those looking for a maneuverable scrubber.
More on Buying Power Scrubbers for Bathrooms
Power scrubbers can revolutionize the way you clean bathroom and kitchen tile, and this guide can help you pick the right scrubber for your needs. They make cleaning bathroom floors remarkably easy by taking much of the manual labor out of the equation and replacing it with machine efficiency. The result is sparkling clean floors without pain, boredom, and inefficiency of scrubbing away by hand.
There are a few key points every shopper should consider when looking to buy a power scrubber:
- Corded or Cordless: Both corded as well as cordless power scrubbers have their upside. Corded ones are assured to never run out of power as long as they are plugged in, though it does come with a distance restriction. Cordless power scrubbers let you clean much more freely, albeit with a finite amount of power before it’s time for a charge.
- The Type of Handle: As with corded and cordless power scrubbers, you’ll want to take care when choosing between longer and shorter handles. Longer handles can help you reach hard to reach places, but it will make cleaning things up close difficult to impossible. Shorter handles make it easier to clean things up close, but makes it harder to reach areas that are high or far away. Which of these is most important for your bathroom will depend on both the size and contours of your bathroom and your personal approach to cleaning.
- Brush Spinning Speed: Higher brush spinning speeds can mean less strain on you and an easier time cleaning overall. You ideally want to find a power scrubber with between 300 to 600 RPM.
- Design Perks: Scrubbers that feature rotating brushes can be a huge bonus. Getting a power scrubber with an extension handle is also a good idea, allowing you to use it at close range and then extend it to use it long distance if the need arises.
- Warranty Information: Even the best laid plans of mice and men can go astray, and even the best-made power scrubbers can run afoul of mechanical problems, get wet and short circuit, or suffer other issues. Whenever you are purchasing something as significant as a power scrubber, you want to be sure to check the warranty information.
Which bathroom scrubber you choose will ultimately depend on which attributes you care about most. If you are looking to clean bathroom fixtures or do some deep cleaning in the corners or seams in your bathroom wall or ceiling, one of the power drill brushes or handheld items might be the best choice. If you are looking to clean your bathroom floor and perhaps a few other floors in your home, the larger, heavy duty bathroom scrubbers may better suit your needs. You’ll also want to pay close attention to how much power each bathroom scrubber packs and what type of add-on brushes it has.
While each of these bathroom power scrubbers do an excellent job of meeting certain needs, they all boast superior cleaning convenience.
