What To Consider When Buying A Floor Scrubber

Floor scrubbers are a necessary cleaning tool for a variety of commercial properties. Whether you manage apartment buildings, retail locations, or you own a commercial cleaning company, a floor scrubbing machine is essential. There are many factors to consider if you are in the market for a new floor scrubbing machine. Here are a few of the top factors to consider:

What Is The Floor Scrubbers Power Source?

There are a few options when buying a floor scrubber. Although most people don’t think about it, most of our first floor scrubbers are “manual”. But if you are a commercial property or commercial cleaning team, manual power is not going to cut it for your operation. Consider the pros and cons of battery-powered vs cord electric scrubbers. Depending on how mobile you will need to be, it may make more sense to pick up a cordless scrubber. However, cordless scrubbers can run out of power over time. So make sure to get one with a strong battery that can last for your entire cleaning project. Scrubbers that rely on outlets are ideal for small spaces. For instance hotels, that plan to use scrubbers purely for cleaning bathrooms can make use out of floor scrubbers that are cord-powered. However, if you plan to clean large tiled areas, a battery-powered scrubber is ideal as it is more maneuverable.

Size Of Floor Scrubber

You also need to consider size. The benefit of a larger size is increased efficiency, while the trade-off is decreased maneuverability. Large floor machines can quickly clean a large room in just a few passes. But if you are cleaning smaller areas like countertops, bathroom fixtures, etc. you should aim for a smaller machine that can fit into tight spaces. A commercial cleaning company might buy both large and small floor machines in order to meet both needs.

Versatile Floor Scrubbing Machines

When it comes to commercial cleaning, there is nothing as important as versatility. One machine that can only handle one thing, is not nearly as valuable as dual-use equipment. Some floor machines can both polish and scrub by switching out a single attachment. Floor machines that are easy to use on multiple surfaces are also a good investment. And some machines even detach and break down into smaller machines, making it easier for users to switch from cleaning floors to cleaning smaller hard-to-reach areas.
