This brush is an aggressive brush for general scrubbing or stripping finishes from hard surfaces. You will need to use a floor stripping chemical for stripping floors, and a degreasing solution to scrub heavily soiled floors. The bristles on this brush are 1-1/2" inches long, and imbedded with a grit for aggressive scrubbing. All grit brushes must be run in a wet environment, at all times.
