The CT140G standard floor/rug tool is designed for cleaning of smooth floors, carpet and rugs with a short nap. A lever on this attachment is depressed to move the brush down for smooth floors or up for carpet and rugs. A single rubber wheel facilitates movement of the tool over all surfaces. The stiff nylon bristles provide for excellent cleaning of smooth surfaces. These bristles will scratch hardwood floors and other delicate surfaces. This combination tool is not recommended for those applications.
Ideal applications for this tool are areas where there are both suitable hard surfaces and short nap carpet or rugs that requires light cleaning, and a single attachment is desired. Often, better cleaning can be achieved by using a powerhead for carpet and rugs and a floor brush for smooth floors.
The swivel neck facilitates access in tight spaces. This attachment is designed to fit Nutone wands with buttons. It will also accept standard 1 1/4" friction wands.
