Curious. Do the brushes wear out faster if you use them on residential. Any pictures would be great too.
Thanks!

What will wear brushes more than anything is resting the weight of the machine on the brushes. Either put the machine in the tray of lay it on the side when not in use.

Aside from that, you should be able to clean well over 1 million square feet before replacing brushes.

If the machines hops or bumps, that is an indication of a flat or worn spot on the brush. When the brush is worn enough to replace, the bristles will splay outward like an over-used toothbrush.

Sorry no pictures. We have not used any of our in-house Brush Pros long enough to get the brushes worn!
