Another Maid Brigade franchise suggested using DuraBumper so I gave them a call. Raye was so helpful and ordering the product was simple.

"Perfect for avoiding the dreaded "Black Stripe." My home is somewhat large and is primarily floored in hardwood. I bought the Bumper for a floor attachment on my Beam central vac. As shown, the head is black. My baseboards and door casings are white. Over time, they became white/gray with a lovely black stripe. I saw the Bumper and immediately ordered it. It was easy to install, and it works perfectly. It needs to be put on precisely, I have found, since it seems to interfere with the suction somewhat if it hangs too far down on the attachment. Easy enough fix: magic Velcro that will NOT come off the head, no matter how many times you need to tweak the Bumper's position. Best thing, anybody in this household can now vacuum without fear of reprisal for scraping black on the baseboards. (We just repainted the entire first floor.) I love this product. I just wish I could convince someone else to do the vacuuming once in a while! Oh, and the hand-written "Thank you" on the packing slip from the vendor simply made me happy to support the company and its product." [Floor-brush Vacuum Bumper – Item #VH42SM]
