When Your Scrubber Isn’t Releasing Water | Corona, CA

We all want the cleanest floors possible. So, we invest in a floor scrubber. But from time to time, these scrubbers will begin to malfunction. Now is time to troubleshoot the issue. Let’s take a look at a possible issue and how to effectively diagnose and repair the issue.

To scrub floors, automatic floor scrubbers release water to help remove dirt. If your floor scrubber is not releasing water, it will not be able to effectively clean your floors the way you’d like. So, what do you do?

It is possible your scrubber isn’t was never filled with water or it does not have enough water. Check the tank and fill to the fill line, then test. If it’s still not working, there is probably a clogged hose or valve, so check them both for any blockages.

Solution filters are commonly forgotten and never get cleaned, which results in them getting clogged. If this happens, it will not allow any water to be released.

To find out what is going amiss, remove and inspect the filter for a blockage. If the filter is dirty, remove any buildup and reconnect to the floor scrubber. Filters need to be cleaned occasionally in order to distribute water.

If you have tried all of these troubleshooting options and your floor scrubber isn’t releasing water, contact an authorized repair center for help identifying and resolving other possible causes.

When It’s Time to Scrub the Floors | Corona, CA

When it’s time to purchase a floor scrubber for your building’s maintenance, it can be an overwhelming decision. Not only are there many different models, but there are so many bells and whistles, it’s difficult to focus on just what your particular needs are. But this is where we come in – here is a breakdown of some of the more simplistic questions to ask yourself. Once you’ve figured out a particular game plan, the minor decisions won’t be so difficult to make…

Noise levels. What type of business do you have? Are you in a busy warehouse? Does the majority of your business happen during the day? Do you need to be respectful of others while maintaining the floors? If you have a business that won’t be affected by a noisy floor scrubber, don’t bother with those noiseless models.

Power. This one wouldn’t think to be an immediate concern, but you’d be surprised. Whether you choose a battery-powered machine, or an electric model will depend on what your needs are. If there will be lots of people around while floors are being cleaned, you may want to stay away from electric models that can possibly trip up someone walking by. Nighttime cleaning crews don’t really need to worry about these accidents, therefore saving on that feature.

Safety. And that leads to the final point – safety. The biggest concern when considering a floor scrubber is making sure the operator can see everything when in operation easily, that passersby don’t end up getting hurt by accidental trip or slip, and that the operator is comfortable, so back pain and injuries don’t become an issue.

Buying a Scrubber: What You Ought to Think About | Corona, CA

When you have a large area to keep spic-n-span, it can be a daunting task to keep the floors clean and injury-free. So, for many industrial businesses, they invest in a floor scrubber rather than using the traditional mop and bucket technique. After all, time is money and wasting manpower at the same time. And if this describes you, you may want to consider a floor scrubber.

When deciding upon which model to purchase, it is important to think about a few key product points so you can get the model best suited for your needs. Here are a few questions to ask:

Do you need a sweeper, a scrubber or both? Knowing what your floor needs to maintain the level of cleanliness you’re looking for will help guide which models to seek out. Some specialize in one mode of cleaning, while others have a dual feature. It all depends on what your industry is and the area you are trying to maintain.

Rider or walk-behind? This depends on the surface of your floors. A rider will increase productivity, but not if you have lots of nooks and crannies to get clean. Knowing the area your cleaning will make this decision easier.

What kind of flooring are you cleaning? Different surfaces necessitate different cleaning products.

Who is operating the scrubber? “Different strokes for different folks” may be the saying, but it holds true for floor scrubbers purchasing. Make sure whoever is operating it can fit the machine and know how to operate it properly. The point is to make this investment a worthwhile one, not cumbersome to those using it.

How Does an Automatic Floor Scrubber Work? | Corona, CA

We can’t deny that it saves you an incredible amount of time. In fact, an automatic floor scrubber can save you up to 80% of the man hours it would take to clean the floors by hand. You’re thankful for this handy machine each time you scrub the dirt and bring them to a glossy sheen. But have you ever stopped to think about how it works?

An automatic floor scrubber makes your life easier with three components that work in unison. After all, teamwork makes the dream work. These components – the solution dispensing system, scrubbing system and solution recovery/vacuum system – all complete the puzzle as you guide the machine along your soiled floors.

Solution dispensing system. You can’t get a good clean without soap. This little gadget makes sure to dispense just the right amount of cleaning solution to your floors. The solution you use is dependent on your particular machine and the floor’s needs.

Scrubbing system. This is the most crucial part of the floor scrubber. Along the bottom of your machine a floor pad or brush will agitate the cleaning solution with enough power to remove any dirt, grease or grime that has soiled your floor.

Solution recovery/vacuum system. Now that we have scrubbed our floors clean, we need to get the soap and residue off the floor. A type of squeegee/vacuum component will suck it all up and store it in a tank that you can remove and empty. This not only minimizes dry time, but will also prevent any injuries from slipping.

Six Reasons You Need a Rider Autoscrubber | Corona, CA

When you have the job of looking after something like a sports arena or government building, cleaning the floors of large facility like that can be a daunting task. And if you have a manual cleaner, it is a time-consuming task. Because after all, floors need to be cleaned frequently, especially if you have a sanitized location like a hospital to keep clean. What you need is a rider autoscrubber, like Clarke Focus II Rider. Not convinced? Here are six ways having an autoscrubber will not only improve how clean your floors are, but will also save time and manpower:

Control system. Universal One-Touch™ controls make it easy for the operator to control.

Side skirts. Water pick-up and wiping performance can cause damage to your machine. Heavy-duty, fully adjustable side skirts prevent all that from happening, making this a cost-effective machine.

Chemical mixing system. Save money, time and the planet with the optional, onboard chemical mixing system.

Operator compartment. No matter what size you are, the open operator compartment with the low-step height and angled floorboard makes hopping on and off a breeze for those quick stops.

Recovery tank. Cleaning the equipment that cleans is never a fun job. The large opening to the recovery tank makes it easy to access and clean the tank, and clogs are prevented with the handy debris catch.

Onboard charger. No one likes to stop a task halfway through. Having the onboard battery charger makes having to stop unnecessary. And when you need to give the autoscrubber maintenance work, battery access is a breeze.

Give Your Cleaning the BOOST It Needs | Corona, CA

When you have a large area of tile or concrete flooring, it is difficult to find a product that can not only clean the surface the best but can also use the least amount of time and manpower in order to do it. In the past, the options were slim – automatic scrubbers with some type of rotating discs or scrubbers. It worked for what it was, but there was always something lacking in the cleaning of these products. The product was slow, only running on low-RPM machines and the scrubbing product needed on these machines required a pressure that the machine wasn’t capable of in order to achieve the preferred result. Because the machines didn’t have the power to do the job correctly, damages were developed on worn out product. But the main disadvantage was a big one – disc scrubbers only scrubbed in one direction. And we all know a good scrub requires varied angles in order to get the fullest cleaning.

BOOST® cleaning pads are rectangular, so unlike the surfaces area skipped by using round discs, these rectangular pads scrub consistently and in tandem with each other, not only resulting in a cleaner surface, but it is also done in a faster time, saving energy and manpower hours. With BOOST® Technology, cleaning solution is applied to the front of the pad, so it is a more thorough, efficient application to your flooring. With Clarke’s patented Pulse Modulated Solution Control, you will save in both cleaning solution and water – a savings of 50-70%!

It’s Time to Focus | Corona, CA

When you have a gigantic amount of square footage to scrub, it is important to try to keep productivity high and costs low. So, when you are getting ready to choose a scrubber for your floor finish, consider choosing the Focus II Mid-Size Autoscrubber. With six different models to choose from, choosing a scrubber that is ideal for your business needs will be a no brainer! Let’s take a look at some of the various features and benefits:

BOOST Technology. BOOST Technology is a green way to remove floor finish without the use of chemicals. By using BOOST, you can not reduce your water usage, but the squared pad design helps to get in the corners, making it a time and money saver.

Three Disc Models. Available in 26, 28 and 34 inch discs, these models are perfect for a daily scrub. Because it is powered by two heavy-duty brush motors, it helps reduce manpower. If you have uneven floors, this is the model for you for an all-over clean.

Cylindrical. The Cylindrical 28 is the machine you need if you have grouted tile, imperfect or rough textured flooring. There is a removable catch-all tray included to make debris disposal easy and the rotating brushes can easily removed and replaced when necessary.

And these are just the benefits for the particular models – there are plenty of perks in general: ergonomic button controls, onboard battery charger, urethane squeegee blades, rear solution fill and a quiet motor make the Focus II Mid Size Autoscrubber the perfect option for your building needs.

Product Showcase: BSW 28 Sweeper | Corona, CA

Because a lot of today’s business takes place in office buildings, it is important to be able to maintain the flooring on a consistent basis in order to keep a professional appearance and safe environment for everyone entering and leaving the space. In the past, we used the push broom in order to sweep the areas, but this turns out to be both exhausting and time-consuming if the space is large enough. Not the most economical option. Then we had the vacuum – an improvement but still not much better in the convenient department with its cords and container cleaning. Now there is an even better option to get those floors swept and tidy – the industrial sweeper. When deciding to expand our product line we knew that you had certain needs to maintaining your floors, so we’ve included these industrial sweepers.

Ideal for both carpets and hardwood, the Clarke BSW 28 Sweeper was created to be both rugged and versatile, making it the perfect choice for large industrial areas that get dirty with dust and dirt more than liquified spills. With its 28-inch sweeping path, self-propelled traction and active dust control, the BSW 28 can get into all of the hard-to-reach places in order to pick up every speck of dust and debris cluttering your floors. And while this may seem similar to a vacuum, this sweeper runs on a gel battery that can run for 2.5 – 3 hours in one charge. But that is just the tip of the proverbial dust bunny iceberg. Not only is it an efficient sweeper, but it’s easily-operated, extremely quiet and has been Green Certified to be eco-friendly as well.

Maintaining the flooring of a large industrial/commercial building is not an easy task. In fact, at times it can be overwhelming. So, when considering new equipment for cleaning hardwood or carpeted flooring, the Clarke BSW 28 is the ideal option for a durable, convenient, eco-friendly option for even the most noise-sensitive of workplaces.
