Choosing an industrial floor cleaning machine can be overwhelming. Do you need an industrial floor sweeper or scrubber? Let’s take a look at the difference.
When you are in the market for an industrial floor cleaning machine, it can be a confusing prospect to choose the most appropriate machine for your business. Consider the following few factors to help inform your decision:
- What degree of cleanliness do you require?
- What does your business do?
- Is your business include food distribution or manufacturing?
- Is it a medical facility?
- Maybe you have high-tech offices?
- Do people visit your facility – customers, clients, visitors?
- Does your business result in grease and oil spills on the floor?
The answers to the above mean that you’re more likely to look for an industrial floor scrubber to meet your needs. On the other hand:
- Does your business involve non-food products?
- Is there a lot of dirt, dust, and debris that results from your operations? Does it cause a problem?
If you answered yes to these two questions, chances are you will want to look for an industrial floor sweeper. An easy differentiator between the two types of machines – think of sweeping and/or scrubbing the floor in your kitchen. It’s two different degrees of cleanliness.
When you need an industrial floor scrubber
An industrial floor scrubber is a commercial floor cleaning machine designed to scrub stains, grease and oil, and other adhesive kinds of materials from floor surfaces. You can operate them on concrete and cement, marble tile, terrazzo, epoxy, and other flooring material.
A high-speed motor drives the brush or pad and utilizes ground friction with the cleaning solution to clean the floor surface. The operator of the scrubber can adjust the pressure of the brush or pad as per the necessary cleaning performance required. Suction collects the dirty water in a tank so that it’s always fresh, clean water as the cleaning agent. No murky, dirty water getting redistributed!
The industrial floor scrubber sprays the clean water and solution, brushes, reclaims the dirty water, and provides suction drying. It cleans and drys the floor rapidly to ensure thorough cleanliness and safety, even moments after the machine passes over. It’s the perfect cleaning machine for facilities such as hotels and shopping malls, hospitals, schools, airports, grocery stores, factories and manufacturing.
When to consider an industrial floor sweeper
You should consider purchasing an industrial floor sweeper when you have big areas that require sweeping. It’s a commercial floor machine that cleans floors very effectively but also very efficiently. A very clean floor with minimal operator effort. When you want to get the very best results from your employee’s shift, floor sweepers remove all manner of dirt and debris from the floor – they’re a great choice!
Best for facilities that don’t include materials that stain, food, oils, etc. – nothing that tends to adhere firmly to the floor surface. Sweepers are great when you need to sweep bulky debris, dust, and dirt.
With powerful engines, industrial floor sweepers can clean warehouses, factories, asphalt roads, and narrow sidewalks and other walkways. They are a great choice for surfaces such as cement, asphalt, laminate, epoxy, marble tile, terrazzo, and others. A floor sweeper tends to be an easier and faster way to clean floors than a scrubber. No chemical cleaning solutions to purchase and stock. No tanks to fill and empty. Essentially, grab the machine and go!
Compared to a floor scrubber, industrial floor sweepers are often less costly and easier to maintain. The sweeper can be an entry-level floor cleaning machine for many clients – the first industrial floor cleaner for their business. Industrial floor sweepers integrate the sweeping function, collection and vacuuming. They work well for facilities such as shopping malls, non-food related retail, commercial storage and other industrial warehouses that don’t include food, underground parking, and others.
