I'm still confused.

I would be using this almost exclusively on wood floors. I cannot tell from ANY of the reviews or product pages if the brush roll will TURN OFF the roll that is meant for carpets or use a different attachment.

I am NOT OKAY with using a brush roll meant for carpets on my wood floors for obvious reasons, but I can't tell ANYWHERE how exactly this works with this vacuum.

Telling me it has "carbon fiber elements" and then bristles for deep carpet cleaning appears contradictory. Are these two separate heads?

Thanks for some input here on how this deals with wood floors.
The brush roll WILL NOT turn off. If that attachment is connected, it's spinning. It has two types of bristles on the same head. The carbon fiber set is supposed to reduce static on hard surfaces and act as a better "sweeper", but in my experience that head only pushes around large particles on hard surfaces anyways, so it's not very good.

Edit: it works acceptably on carpets considering it's a cordless vacuum, but still nowhere near as well as a corded vacuum.
