Clean floors are essential for any business. Whether you manage a manufacturing facility, hospitality establishment, office or school, maintaining a good appearance and creating a safe environment for clients, guests and employees is vital. Choosing the right floor scrubber can help accomplish these goals, and there are many factors to consider when deciding which is best for your needs. Our inventory includes a wide range of both walk-behind and ride-on floor scrubbers, and we are happy to help you choose the best one. Here are some of the considerations you should make when shopping:
Think about not just the amount of floorspace you need to clean, but also your storage limitations. Large riding scrubbers, for example, make easy work of cleaning large areas, but if your space is on the smaller side (less than 50,000 sq ft), a walk-behind model may do the trick.
Evaluating Your Needs
Take note of the type of debris the machine will be picking up, how much traffic the area gets and the type of flooring in your facility. All of these factors come into play when choosing the right scrubber!
For example, if the surfaces in your space require hard cleaning (like in storage facilities or parking areas), a floor scrubber with a disc-shaped brush may be best. These scrubbers are great at tackling the toughest cleaning jobs, like removing stains from tire marks or grease. For concrete floors, choose a model with stiff brushes that can penetrate the surface, and avoid metallic brushes that may shed fibers on rust and concrete.
For flooring with an uneven surface, check out floor scrubbers with cylindrical brushes. These models will eliminate the need to sweep prior to scrubbing, shaving you time, effort and money.
