Reliable Industrial Floor Cleaning Machines Keep Business Spaces Clean

Whether you run a hospital, a restaurant or a retail store, you will quickly learn that cleanliness is everything. Your customers want to enter an establishment that is tidy and presentable, and a dirty store only turns prospects away. Worse, failing to clean your establishment will attract all sorts of bacteria and other unwanted contaminants that could endanger the health and safety of both you and your customers. It is important to keep your business clean at all times, but relying on manual cleaning tools such as mops and brooms can be tedious and inefficient. Instead, consider power industrial floor cleaning machines, which are produced and sold by manufacturers such as PowerBoss. These machines are the best options for cleaning surfaces while making the task easier and faster.

When to Replace Your Aging Industrial Sweepers and Scrubbers

Industrial sweepers and scrubbers have gone through extensive development since their introduction in the early 1900s. Although their use remains the same, today’s models are leaps and bounds easier to use, and more environmentally-friendly than their older counterparts. Although facility managers should already understand the importance of a clean working environment, it’s certainly worth reiterating here: a tidy working environment promotes productivity, safety and product quality. Additionally, it portrays an image of quality standard that boosts employee morale and creates a good impression to visiting vendors and clients. Choosing the best floor-cleaning equipment, therefore, will help add more value to your enterprise.

A Few Handy Tips on Buying an Automated Industrial Floor Scrubber

The mop and the bucket are now way past their heyday. Automated industrial floor cleaning machines are taking over the stage due to their more powerful cleaning capabilities—a mere 17-inch machine can clean more than 12,700 square feet of flooring per hour, compared to a measly 4,100 square feet for a 16-ounce mop. These benefits have made an automatic industrial floor scrubber a valuable commodity, able to clean any hard surface floor quickly and efficiently. Part of its effectiveness is its ability to quickly replace dirty water with a fresh, clean batch, as well as the powerful cleaning action of the special scrub heads underneath it. A scrubber is also much less labor-intensive and efficient than a mop and bucket, offering practical value to anyone.

Choosing Between Ride-on and Walk-Behind Scrubbers

There are two types of industrial scrubbing equipment available to businesses: the type you can ride on, and the ones that users push from behind. Both varieties are effective in their own right when it comes to cleaning floor surfaces in an instant versus the traditional bucket and mop approach, although their method of operation differs. One question remains, however: Is one truly better than the other?

The main advantage of using ride-on industrial scrubbers is that operators do not have to tire themselves from pushing the machine from one end of the premises to the other. Such an advantage can be a boon to  business productivity as the operator can be tasked to do another job right after cleaning. A ride-on scrubber, in other words, reduces employee fatigue and at the same time makes sure the job gets done in no time.

On the other hand, walk-behind scrubbers are best known for their compact design, which allows them to easily fit in tight spots where ride-on models will have difficulty maneuvering around. In addition, walk-behind models are generally more affordable than ride-on types. Both types of scrubbers have their own advantages, so businesses should select one based on their specific cleaning needs.

Industrial Floor Cleaning: Sweep, Scrub, or Both?

For upkeep and safety, every facility needs a combination of floor care tools and equipment, from brooms and cleaners to walk-in and rider-type scrubbers and sweepers. Choosing the right equipment should be based on your facility’s specific cleaning needs.

Industrial floor sweepers are designed with circular brushes that rotate rapidly and quickly sweep up debris, which are then stored in a filtered container inside the machine. These machines are best used for cleaning up solid metal shavings, wood chips, and fibrous debris. Scrubbers, on the other hand, are ideal for light, dusty debris on hard floors, particularly oily surfaces.

In many instances, particularly for large scale operations, sweeping or brushing alone won’t be enough. You’d need to sweep first and then scrub to thoroughly remove dirt. You have the option to buy either two separate machines or a single machine that performs both functions. The main disadvantage of most combination machines, however, is that they have limited hopper and tank capacities. The more frequently you have to stop to remove the hopper and refill a tank, the longer it would take you to finish cleaning up.

When choosing a combo sweeper and scrubber, opt for a machine that sweeps and scrubs the surface at the same time, and has larger poly tanks that are easy to clean and fill to allow for faster cleaning. Also, a machine that features flexibility and maneuverability helps your maintenance personnel clean high-traffic and congested areas more effectively.
