Can you not buy new brushes and fit them yourself ? What model of HOOVER is it ?

I agree, why wouldn't you just buy new brush strips or bristles for dust or bare floor nozzles? What model and what needs bristles?

I can heartily recommend to you:


Mr. Lance Cheney

Braun Brush Company

43 Albertson Av.

Albertson, NY  11507

(516) 741-6000


He can rebristle just about any TUFTED brush you have.  Send him photos and/or send him the work by mail for an estimate.  The results are decidedly better than new-old-stock.  You will need to specify bristle type and length.  If in doubt, go with longer than shorter.  You can always trim them down if need be.  Cost VARIES depending on quantity and difficulty.  $1.50 per TUFT is not unusual.  If your brush strips are the twisted or helical type, you will probably have to send the entire brush roll with them because he will have to use the roll as a mount to hold the work in place.


Hope that helps.

brush re bristleing

I have used O'connor's for re bristleing some of my hoover strips and 541 brush rolls
and he is very cheap. hoover brush strip sets are 15.00 and brush rolls are 25.00 last time I had them done.

hope this helps,also look at thread # 15225 under vintage.
