|Many of the attachments made by Miele serve as replacements or alternatives to other previous tools launched on the market by the same manufacturer. The SBB 235-2 smooth floor brush is one of those attachments, one which reaches its maximum potential on bare floors. This floor brush is an alternative to the SBD 450 combination floor tool. As a matter of fact, it is a recommended alternative. The reason why experts prefer the SBB 235-2 smooth floor brush to the SBD 450 combination floor tool is because the airflow is more powerful toward the surface with the former.|
Perfect for tiled and other textured smooth floors, this attachment uses two soft runners to glide seamlessly across the surfaces, whilst removing even the smallest dust particles from all gaps and grooves. For use with S500-600 series canister vacuums.
This smooth floor brush is recommended for cleaning all surfaces which are more or less sensitive to scratches. Miele also recommends its use on flagstone or linoleum. It can also be used on PVC without any reservations. However, the fact that it can also be used on surfaces which are less sensitive to scratches does not mean that it does not have the protection features the attachments that bear the Miele mark usually have. This floor brush also has those rubber wheels which minimize the risk of scratches.
These wheels are mounted on the sides of the brush strip and also have another role apart from the protection one. They also support the weight of the nozzle and relieve some of the pressure it exercises, thus lowering the risk of the bristles flattening. The bristles are synthetic, so they also protect the surfaces they sweep over. Moreover, they do not exercise any pressure on the floor for the reasons mentioned above. They are disposed on two rows for higher efficiency. The front brush strip also features some notches which clear the way so that the dust and dirt can enter the nozzle. Thus, the cleaning is done properly.
The Miele SBB 235-2 smooth floor brush cleans all the debris it comes across within a radius of 11 inches and it is 2.5 inches deep, so its high efficiency rate is justified. No dust escapes this floor brush and this is a guarantee. The tests carried out by Miele before releasing such a product on the market have proven it on countless occasions. The same tests are carried out before the launch of a Miele vacuum cleaner on the market. The efficiency test is followed by a durability one as well as by a resistance test. The latter assesses the tool’s ability to resist to a 3-foot drop.
As far as its compatibility with Miele’s vacuum cleaners goes, the SBB 235-2 smooth floor brush does not fit the park systems of the appliances of the S4 and S5 series. However, it delivers ideal results if fitted on the vacuum cleaners of the S6 series. All in all, this smooth floor brush is equally efficient on all the vacuum cleaners it is fitted on, the choice depending on the type of surface one needs to clean rather than on the type of appliance they own. In other words, the only limitation is the user’s preference for one tool or another.
