Functional but not well designed. Doesn't replace standard hardwood floor nozel.
on September 12, 2013
Why did I buy this:
I recently had hardwood installed and liked this idea for my central vacuum system. I got a standard 'horse hair' hardwood floor brush/nozzle and have been using that with success but I thought microfiber would worry me less about long term additional wear of the surface and would get into edges better.
Experience & design issues:
-First thing I had to do after opening it was clean off the brush itself. There was a surprising about of fabric debris that came off of it. I'd recommend vacuuming it before using if you do buy it.
-When using I found that it does not do a better job than the standard brush on the edges as there is little material that can come out the side and nothing in the design or stitching that actually makes it point out to the, side so it simply lays forward or back in use, there is essentially nothing that comes out the side. You can get into the baseboards/edge if you use the front as there is enough material there that it will usually stay pointing out that direction.
-All the microfiber threads in the back simply get sucked into the rectangular air hole and do nothing other than reduce the airflow. Nothing I tried would keep them from being sucked in. In the front there is a open spot with microfiber 'numbs'/very short threads but the back area has the long threads which should have been removed or replaced with half or quarter length threads.
-The one positive is that I do feel as though I can do a little dry 'scrubbing' on a spot without worrying about the firm bristles of the standard hardwood nozzle.
-Note I've not yet tried removing it from the Velcro, washing, and re-attaching.
I would give this a 2 1/2 stars and would recommend trying a different product.
