What pad should I pick?

While there can be a lot of varying opinions and grey area when it comes to selecting a pad there are a few general rules of thumb to go by. If you are stripping we recommend a black pad for standard floor stripping jobs. If the floor you are stripping is caked in finish and needs a lot of work use a more aggressive stripping pad like a Burgandy stripping pad. For light cleaning or spray, buffing choose a red pad. For heavier duty-scrubbing, you should choose between and blue scrubbing pad or a green scrubbing pad. If polishing is the task at hand then choose a white pad

What brush should I use?

If you are needing a brush for carpet useat a showerfed brush. This could be Nylon Shampoo Brush, which is the softest, a Soft Nylon Scrub Brushes, which is a good all-around carpet brush, a SpinSafe brush which includes a glide plate in the center reducing the impact on the carpet, or a Powr-Riser which includes an adjustable glide plate. For most instances, a Polypropylene or Nylon brush is the preferred tool.

For scrubbing unfinished concrete or stripping jobs use a Grit brush.  Choose a Medium Grit, Heavy Grit, or Extra Heavy Grit brush for stripping jobs depending on how aggressive the brush needs to be. The Medium Grit Brush is suitable for most stripping needs. Use a Lite Grit brush for general floor scrubbing on unfinished concrete and a Wire Scrub Brush for very aggressive stripping and scrubbing jobs on unfinished concrete.

When maintaining floors with a finish use a Medium Nylon Scrub Brushes brush for general scrubbing or a Soft Nylon Scrub Brushes brush for cleaning highly polished floors.
