    Mine has a head with a rotating brush for carpet and another straight brush for hard floors.

    My vacuum has a desperate attachment for carpets and floors so I don't encounter this problem! But I would think pop the brush down for hard floors and up for carpet.

    I've always done brush down for hard floors and up for carpet. It doesn't slide over the carpet properly with the brush down!

    While we're on vacuums, the new dysons that have the rotating brush (I think we have the animal pro?) ... Do you use the rotating brush on every surface? I have it in my head it's only for carpet and you change to the long skinny one for tiles but DH uses the rotating brush for both surfaces

    My dyson has a little round filter on the side of the rotating brush attachment that you can pop in and out to stop the brush from rotating when using on hard floors and restart on the carpet to get the animal hair up from the carpet pile

    Well, well.

    I like brush down for carpet, and brush up for hard floors!

    I don't have a fancy rotating brush head, or a Dyson - just a regular type of vacuum cleaner.

    I think brush down works better for carpets, agitates the pile, and makes sure hair gets picked up.

    Brush up for hard floors to get better suction! Haven't scrached the floors yet!

    My DP thinks I have it wrong, but I don't think so!
