      There is a short article here on brush maintenance:

      http://bielerpressxi.blogspot.com/2006/05/brush-maintenance-and-adjustment.html

      Use a heavy duty dog hair brush or plate brush cleaner to comb the tufts straight. If the brush has been neglected likely tufts are adhered to the floor with photopolymer waste. You will have to dig through this and afterward, vacuum up all the debris.

      When the machine is drained out at the end of the day, run the flat of your hand over the brushes to straighten them out. This will prevent the matting prblem.

      Brushes are expensive to replace, but it they are taken care, they can last for quite some long time.

      Thanks!
