Now that we are slowly beginning to reopen after the COVID-19
lockdown, there are lots of procedures that will have to change when it comes
to keeping companies safe for its employees and clients. Harsher restrictions
will need to be put in place in order to keep everything clean and germ-free.
This includes the floors. Make sure to check on the precautions mandated and
insert them into your cleaning routines. But there is a difference between
clean, disinfected and sanitized – and this is the way that they all break down:
Cleaned. To clean a floor is to remove dirt and grime, in order to make it look nice and shiny to the eye. Unfortunately, many all-purpose floor cleansers are just cleaning the floors; they aren’t actually getting rid of germs.
Sanitized. When you sanitize a floor, you are
cleaning it deeper than a basic cleaning, because they reduce the growth of
bacteria on surfaces. It is better, but it isn’t as deep of a clean as a good
Disinfected. The deepest of the clean, disinfecting floors
will kill both the germs and the bacteria. This should be the norm of most
The wonderful thing about floor scrubbers is that they have the ability to clean and sanitize at the same time, using certain cleansers. And within those high-traffic areas, disinfecting will be ideal. After all, airborne germs are transmitted easily and can spread along surfaces like floors in a spray-like way that becomes impossible to trace. Being able to have a machine that can effectively keep everyone safe is the ultimate goal.
Because no business is exactly alike, when delving into our product expansion, we decided that we needed to include all variations of industrial scrubbers, including both riding and manual-push. The Advance Adgressor® rider-scrubber is not only a fantastic piece of equipment due to its flexibility, but its EcoFlex™ System, making it an environmentally-friendly way to maintain your facility’s cleaning routine.
The Adgressor is designed to be able to switch pad pressure,
water and detergent quickly and easily, so it is able to perform all your
cleaning needs with very little effort. Depending on your need, you can switch
between water only for quick upkeep, ultra-low detergent for a routine
cleaning, standard detergent for those tougher messes and the EcoFlex’s burst
of power for the ultimate deep cleaning. Name the cleaning challenge, the
Adgressor has the solution.
Not only does it have this multi-functionality in its
cleaning modes, but because it is a riding machine, the operator will save both
time and energy that can be utilized in other projects. Yes, it’s true – the Adgressor
can clean twice as much space as a manual scrubber within the same amount of time.
In one hour, the Adgressor with a 35-inch scrub deck cleans up to 46,200 square
feet in an hour while a manual scrubber with a 32-inch scrub deck cleans 28,160
square feet in that same hour. As an employer, this is a benefit as the time
and money spent on manpower in order to maintain the floors manually is
drastically higher than when using the Adgressor rider-scrubber.
If your commercial/industrial building is in need of cleaning equipment that is not only versatile but economical and eco-friendly, the Advance-Adgressor rider-scrubber is tough to beat.
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.
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.
