Angle Grinder Uses

An angle grinder is actually a very useful home improvement too. Below are some things you can do with an angle grinder.

Cleaning

  • Use a wire cup brush to remove rust and caked-on cement and dirt from tools.
  • Use a wire wheel to remove paint

Cut bars, rods and bolts

  • Use a metal cutoff wheel to cut bars, rods and bolts
  • Use a metal cutoff wheel to cut off frozen bolts or screws

Cut tile, stone and concrete

  • Use a diamond wheel to cut through tile

Restore cutting edges

  • Use a grinding wheel to sharpen dull blades

Cutting out old mortar

  • Use a diamond tuckpointing wheel to grind out old, loose mortar

Easily Clean Shower Floor Tile

Shower floors easily get dirty with soap scum and dirt and sometimes mold. Cleaning showers floors like those made of tile can be difficult and tiring. Many people may think they have no choice but to manually scrub the floor. Fortunately, there’s an easier, effortless way using power tools.

Tools Needed

In the picture below, you can see I have the corded polisher with a 7″ stiff bristle brush attachment.

There are 2 set screws you use to help secure the brush attachment to the polisher.

At 7 inches in diameter, the brush is large, which is fine for my custom walk-in shower.

I haven’t tested it out yet but I’m sure it’ll work. Previously, I hacked a brush onto an angle grinder which worked but the available brushes were too soft.

If you need to clean walls, this tool would be difficult to use. Since most of the dirt is on the floor, you can just use Clorox Disinfectant wipes for walls.

Best Floor Mops

If you need to mop a large floor to just remove dust, then consider the Casabella Spin Mop. There are many spin mops on the market but this one not only spin dries the mop to remove excess water before each mopping, it also spin rinses the mop to remove dirt.

Spin Dry

If, on the other hand, you need to mop a small area that has stuck-on dirt, like in a kitchen or bathroom, then the Bissel Steam Clean mop would do you well. The steam from the mop will melt dirt so it can be mopped away.
