Floor scrubbers and their uses

A floor scrubber is a device in the form of a walk-behind or a ride-on machine to clean larger areas by injecting water with a cleaning solution and scrubbing and lifting the residue off the floor. Floor scrubbers can be used effectively in industrial, domestic, and commercial spaces to scrub your floors clean of light debris, dust, oil, grease, or floor marks.

Floor scrubbing machine features a cylindrical or rotary (disk) scrubbing head with an automated system that dispenses cleaning solution and vacuums it up. So, in one pass over the floor, a user can dispense a cleaning agent, scrub it into the floor, then vacuum it all up with an auto scrubber squeegee attachment at the back of the machine. Auto scrubbers have a separate dispensing (solution) tank and collection (recovery) tank to separate the clean water from the dirty water. They can be categorized into three main types: walk-behind, stand-on, and rider.

Floor scrubbers are more hygienic than traditional cleaning methods, such as mops and buckets. Environmentally safe soaps can be used in conjunction with a reduced water system to save on the number of chemicals released into the environment and the amount of gray water produced. Some scrubbers are even capable of cleaning without a water and chemical system at all.

Some auto scrubbers cannot reach edges and corners to clean under obstructions such as drinking fountains, and cannot fit into alcoves which will require the user to mop those areas the auto scrubber cannot reach, because of this limitation, new brands of floor scrubbing machines with orbital or oscillating brush decks allow edges, corners, and overhangs to be fully cleaned.

Modern floor scrubbers have a pre-sweep option that removes the need to sweep the floor before scrubbing. The pre-sweep brush head is placed in front of the vacuum system to collect dust and debris before it can block the vacuum system, although in the past it was important to sweep the floor before scrubbing to remove any debris and dust that could clog the vacuum hose or build up in the vacuum motor, which can decrease performance. If this happens, the hose may need to be removed to clear the obstruction, and/or the motor may need to be blown out with compressed air.

Uses of Floor Scrubbing machine

Floor scrubbers allows the washing of various surfaces very quickly and efficiently in maintenance and strip cleaning operations. In maintenance work, a scrubber dryer allows one to remove dirt in a single step by leaving the floor immediately accessible. The most frequent case is cleaning shopping centers, airports, or hospitals daily. With adequate-sized models, interventions can also be performed in small rooms, ensuring a much higher cleaning standard than the manual one, which does not guarantee the complete removal of the dirty solution from the ground. It is the perfect solution to clean kitchens, community canteens, entrances and hotel halls, shops, open spaces, and meeting rooms.

In strip cleaning comprising of degreasers or wax stripping procedures and removals of salt efflorescence, the hourly performance of a scrubber dryer is higher than that of a single-brush scrubber for cleaning and a wet/dry vacuum for the recovery of the dirty solution. If you use the scrubber dryer to rinse, you can optimize the working time, as you can carry out the task with just one operator instead of using one person with a single-brush machine and another with a vacuum cleaner. The scrubber saves time and resources, allowing you to clean faster and more efficiently.

Floor scrubbers can leave your floors much more clean and dry than a mop and bucket, which helps prevent the risk of slips and falls within your facility, as well as an improved appearance. They clean much faster than mops and buckets, and it is easy to find the perfect one for your unique cleaning needs. Whether you need a compact walk-behind scrubber to clean narrow spaces, such as your hallways or entryways, or a large ride-on scrubber to clean larger surface areas, such as a garage or an entire school, there is a machine on the market that is perfect for you.

Maintenance Tips for a floor scrubber

Stripping solution should never be used on the floor scrubbing machine as it can cause damage to the solution dispensing system, but the machine can still vacuum it up without harm. Occasionally, the solution system should be flushed with water and vinegar to remove any soap and calcium deposits that could build in the solution system.

After each use, the dispensing (solution) and especially the collection (recovery) tanks should be emptied and rinsed out to prevent dirt buildup. The pads/brushes, vacuum hose, and squeegee should also be rinsed to prevent dirt buildup. The motor should be run for several minutes afterward to remove any moisture that could be present in the motor to reduce the chances of corrosion that could damage the vac motor. Failure to do this maintenance can result in a loss of vacuum airflow and an increase in costly repairs.
