Floor Cleaning Brush Types
There are several factors that need to be kept in mind when focusing on brushes. While buying a good floor cleaning brush it is pertinent to look at the recovery strength and softness of its bristles. Recovery strength refers to a bristle’s ability to retain its original shape and rigidity, even after consistent use. Bristles with good recovery strength will be durable. They will not break or splay out from the center. Bristle softness is a measure of how coarse bristles are to the touch. Soft bristles are ideal for delicate surfaces, while hard bristles are useful for cutting through tough grease and grime.
