High Quality Floor Brush
on March 15, 2015
Cen-Tec Systems 34905 Hard Floor Vacuum Brush – fits 1.25-inch (32 mm) wands. This 12-inch wide, solidly constructed floor brush is the highest quality floor brush I've found. The front natural bristles (3/8-inch long) are shorter than the side and rear bristles (5/8-inch long). The 1/4-inch gap lets the brush trap sand and debris that would otherwise be pushed away or passed over by other style floor brushes. The product description says the Cen-Tec brush is Made-in-America, and it certainly appears to be high quality. It weighs about 12 ounces. The long natural bristles are soft and densely packed. It performs perfectly on my tile and hardwood floors.
For comparison, I purchased a different style floor brush at the same time, Eastvita® 1 & 1/4 inches (32 mm) Deluxe Floor Brush, about $8.00 from Amazon Prime. The Eastvita® has a plastic wheel on each side to keep the brushes from contacting the floor as much, and it has open notches in the front bristles (think Jack-o'-lantern teeth) to allow grit to get under. I don't like the Eastvita® nearly as well. The rollers make a plasticky clatter sound on hardwood floors and tile, the bristles are stiff and short, and overall it's not as heavy-duty and high quality feeling (weighs about 5 ounces less) compared to the Cen-Tec systems 34905 brush.
