You should never use a metal wire brush near the center electrode insulator. If its surface is not perfectly smooth, it will abrade the metal bristles, leaving a conductive track on the insulator. Many surfaces and all ceramics are harder than common metals, and will present this problem, particularly if they are supposed to be an insulator.
