Flex Scrub FAQ:
Q: Can you purchase the Flex Coupler separately?
A: No, the Flex Coupler does not detach from the Flex Scrub. If you’re in need of a replacement Flex Coupler, you will need to replace the entire bristled pad.
Q: What type of machine can I use Flex Scrub on?
A: Flex Scrub bristled floor pads work with most standard floor machines: 175-350 RPM’s (single disc machines, auto-scrubbers, ride-on and orbital). Quickly attaches to any pad driver.
Q: Can you use a Flex Scrub on all orbital floor machines?
A: Flex Scrub will work on all pad drivers made with a standard recessed center hole area. This allows room for the Flex Coupler.
Exclusions include machines designed with a flat disc pad driver; examples pictured below.
Q: What color Flex Scrub should I purchase?
A: Purchase the same color Flex Scrub as the floor pad you are currently using.
Q: What size Flex Scrub should I order?
A: Order the same size Flex Scrub as your pad driver.
Q: What sizes does Flex Scrub come in?
A: Flex Scrub Bristled Floor pads come in five sizes: 13”, 16”, 17”, 19”, and 20”.
Q: How do I know when I need to replace my Flex Scrub?
A: Replace Flex Scrub when bristles have about ½” length remaining.
Q: If I currently buy and use grit brushes, should I buy Flex Scrub instead?
A: No, continue to use grit brushes. Flex Scrub is not a replacement for a grit brush; it is a replacement for a pad.
Q: How long will a Flex Scrub Bristled Floor pad last?
A: Our testing shows that if you use the same color Flex Scrub as a floor pad, the Flex Scrub will last up to 50 times longer than one traditional floor pad.
Q: Will the Polypropylene scratch the floor?
A: The Polypropylene in the Flex Scrub will not scratch the floor if you are using the proper Flex Scrub for the floor type. Reference our application guide for details.
Q: Is the Black Flex Scrub effective in taking off floor wax like a traditional pad can?
A: When used with a chemical stripper, the Black Flex Scrub removes the floor wax more quickly, which increases worker productivity.
Q: Can the Flex Scrub polish floors?
A: Flex Scrub is not intended to polish, but to clean and strip, depending on the color Flex Scrub you use.
Q: Are there enough tufts in a Flex Scrub to clean the floor well?
A: There are more than enough tufts on a Flex Scrub to properly loosen the dirt and agitate chemicals/water on the floor to achieve a clean result. The bristles agitate and remove the dirt in both the highs and lows of the floors and in grout lines, where traditional pads only smear the dirt and spread it across the surface of the floor.
Q: Can you use Flex Scrub on LVT?
A: Yes, we recommend using the Red Flex Scrub for everyday maintenance on LVT.
