    Adding an OP

    I don’t do enough commercial to justify an OP in my opinion. I don’t like working nights and weekends a lot so I don’t chase it.......if I’m doing VLM on a commercial site I just unload the 20” Cimex with the big boy wheels.... if im I’m padding it I’ll follow with the Tenent/nobles 185/315...

    So this is a first

    Need a push broom for scrubbing in encap

    I have one it’s too small. I want a broom for brushing in encap on lightly soiled carpet. I’m trying to get out of lugging the buffer up stairs but want some agitation. I’ll be using it to scrub in pre spray before HWE also.

    What’s a good broom from Home Depot or Lowe’s and what type of bristles do I need? This would be for mostly synthetic Berber and loop pile commercial. Please don’t tell me the Grandi POS.....
