    vacuum brushes

    Had to replace the brushes on the vac head mid season last year. When I went to vacuum for the first time this season, I noticed the head was sticking on the bottom again. Sure enough, one entire side of bristles are worn off (they weren't when I started vacuuming, but many were breaking/falling off). What is causing the bristles to go bad so quickly?? Bleach? Sunlight? Any brands better than others?

    If you leave it out in the sun that will destroy the bristles pretty quickly.

    Re: vacuum brushes

    Sorry! Didn't mean to double post (nor did I notice till now!) because no one had answered! If you check the time stamp on each post, you;ll see it was just a few minutes apart...clearly an operator error! How do I delete one if it happens again? But would like still to get recommendations for a brand that seems to hold up a bit longer...
