Flex Scrub®, the ultimate bristled floor pad, blends the familiarity and easy installation of a traditional pad with the robust cleaning power of a brush. There’s no need to change existing floor machines, no special attachment required and no operator learning curve. That’s because Flex Scrub® has been engineered to work with most existing machines, attaching as quickly and simply as a regular pad. And while it’s similar to a pad in ease of attachment, Flex Scrub® offers a considerably deeper level of cleaning.
