Just trying to see what carpets are best to use brush on 175 compared to using a pad when agitating carpet. Also where is a good place to purchase spotting towels Jon-Don supplier only has some very cheap ones. Thanks

Brush on cut pile, frieze, some berber.

Fiber pads on berber, commercial loop, and cut pile.

Guess it depends on situation. Some traffic soil is on surface tips of fibers. This situation the pads seem to do better for me. And chunky messes that are ground in to fibers the brush is better suited as it can dig and break it apart.

Spotting cloths i just use cheap terry cloth from homedepot. They dont hold up though.
