These 15" jumbo steel wool floor pads are more absorbent, stronger, and more efficient at cleaning the grime off floors than synthetic floor pads. These pads fit on any of our 15" low-speed floor buffers. The fullness and springiness of these hand-wrapped pads allow them to quickly cut through grime without clogging. Since they are hand wrapped, there are no welds, wire stays, or stitches that could possibly scratch your floors.
These Jumbo pads are perfect for cleaning, dry scrubbing, polishing, or finishing almost any type of floor at the toughest angles. They can even be shaken out to be used over and over again. Once you cling the steel wool pad to the bottom of a fiber brush, the weight of the floor machine will keep the steel wool pad secure. If you are looking for more compact pad that is less prone to tear, shred, or fray, take a look at our 15 inch Textsteel pads.
