This vs. Metal Version
Hello, Which is better for cleaning wood floors: this or the metal floor horse hair attachment? Andrea SLC, Utah
Hi Andrea, they are both good for different homeowners. But first understand that you need powerful suction for it to be effective in that large of a brush. If you are not totally satisfied with your power in a 12 inch brush then expect less from the 14 inch. The metal brush is not horse hair, by the way, but a very plush nylon. Of all the brushes, it cleans the best. But it is taller and fits under a lot less, even the over hang at the buttom of the kitchen cabinets (sometimes). Plus it is expensive. The plastic one will surely need powerful suction to be effective since air comes in from the front and the sides (front only on the metal one). The plastic one has quicker action with less results (if you look closely) but does a very fine job. Hope the helps.
