When changing the floor brush bristles

The Rainbow floor brush is the perfect tool to sweep any kind of hard floor, walls, or even ceiling.

But, eventually, the floor brush bristles get worn out. The good news is that you can only replace the bristles and have a new floor brush.

Now, the question is, When change the floor brush bristles for a new one?

If you notice that is hard to slide or you feel a sticky brush while you are sweeping your floor, chances are you need to change the bristles.

The floor brush bristles have an air circulation system in order to provide maximum airflow and reduce suction.

Remember! More air flow, better cleaning, more suction, less cleaning.

So, if you pay attention to the bristles, they have little square cuts, these openings allow the air to pass through the brush for better cleaning.

Eventually, the constant use of the brush wears the bristles, making the bristles flat without squares. This reduces airflow and creates suction against the floor and you will feel a sticky brush.

Check for little squares present around the bottom of your bristles. If you have no square or the bristles are almost flat, this is an indication that you need a new one.


In Rainbow, we have two different models of floor tools, the old floor tool is 8 inches long and the new Rainbow e2 comes with a new redesigned 11-inch floor tool. So, be aware of which one is yours before buying a new one. You can measure your current brush in order to be sure which one is your model.
