Electric vs. Air powered Vacuum Brushes

For years, Electrolux has offered homeowners with the biggest and latest built-in vacuum. From motors to inventive accessories, Electrolux Vacuums provides the ideal solution for any cleaning need regardless of the task.
With a power brush from our company, efficient, thorough cleaning is within reach. If you're seeking the ideal accessory with electric or air-powered brushes, you've come to the right place. 

Air-powered Brushes 

These designs use low-voltage power for channeling the airflow and suction through a small integral tube. They're ideal for short carpets, hard surfaces and are great for picking up small debris and dirt. These designs are a cost-efficient way of vacuuming hard surfaces.
Furthermore, they're excellent for informing you the filtration system is full; they just slow down because of the lack of airflow to rotate the roller brush and turbine. 

Benefits of Air-powered Brushes 

They're easy to use besides being tough on dirt. With this design, a high-speed turbine spins, generating the superior suction required for deep cleaning. You'll discover the brush roller does a great job of agitating sand, dirt, and other debris embedded within your carpet. This brings things to the surface and the powerful intake port will suck it up.
Another benefit is that they're more responsive, lighter in weight, and exceptionally maneuverable. They also generate savings because they don't use electricity and you'll never need to substitute a motor. 

Electric-powered Brushes 

Unlike air-powered brushes, these ones use a motor to aid the brush spin. Since the brush doesn't use suction to control the brush, improved airflow, and more suction leave deep carpets looking groomed and clean.
You'll find these brush rolls in power teams, uprights, and central vacuums, which come in numerous different shapes, sizes, and prices to fit virtually any preference, cleaning task, and budget.

Vacuum Tools 

Dust Brush 

This tool commonly applies to blinds, baseboards, and other oddly shaped or delicate surfaces. While some people prefer a stiff brush, others want a soft one. Bear in mind that your dust brush's stiffness is crucial, so you must always consider the surfaces you're cleaning to establish the required stiffness.
Some constitute synthetic materials and can be stiff while those comprising natural hair or fibers can be very soft. If you dislike the dust brush you own, one of our experts will recommend a product from Electrolux vacuum parts.
Fortunately, dust brushes come in various sizes, types, and shape that will fit various machines. It's also important to remember that manufacturers don't produce the same quality. 

Bare Floor Brush 

This brush can come in a wide range of sizes. Numerous people don't consider the furniture they own, the kind of flooring, and whether they have pets when using this brush. This is certainly not a one-size-fits-all type of tool; it can range from 8-16 inches.
The manners in which hair and items get into the tool determine the type and size of tool that works best. Some sizes work best if you have considerable pet hair on your floors and others will clean better if the hair isn't much.
Remember, hair is problematic because it sticks on the brushes. The more brushes, the better for hardwood floors. However, more problems arise when animal hair becomes entangled in the bristles. Consulting an expert is always useful to establish the kind of brush that works best. 

Brush Rolls 

Brush rolls are plastic, wood, or metal cylinders featuring bristles that rotate at high speed to remove dirt from carpets. Most contemporary brush rolls are wood or plastic with embedded bristled in the brush roll. Some vacuums have aluminum or steel rolls with replaceable strips.
The rolls come in various sizes and shapes with some being round cylinders and others are contoured to encourage different effects on the cleaning action and airflow. A brush roll's major effect is loosening dirt from the carpet fibers and moving it upward so the suction motor can drag it into the vacuum.
Keep in mind that worn bristles won't clean your carpet effectively, so replacement is necessary. You can easily detect worn bristles; they feel mushy and soft instead of stiff and they might have split ends.
If your vacuum is extremely noisy, the brush roll's bearings might be defective or the endcaps might have a blockage with carpet fibers and hairs. In either case, consider replacement, particularly if the bristles are showing indications of wear. It's also good to substitute the belt when replacing the brush roll.
