Is It Time to Invest in a Floor Scrubber? | Corona, CA

Now that we are in a COVID-19 world, it is of the utmost importance to keep our environments as clean as possible. But if you have a lot of square footage to cover, it can be a time-consuming task to keep sanitary protocols up. When you find that it is becoming a bit less economical as it once was, it may be time to think about investing in a floor scrubber to maximize production.

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 as well. 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.

Making a Floor Scrubber Work for You | Corona, CA

Now that we are starting to get some sense of normalcy, we need to put in lots of extra cleaning procedures in order to keep everyone safe. And this includes our floors. Unfortunately, manually cleaning a large surface area not only takes time and manpower but ends up becoming a monetary issue in the end. In an effort of solving this issue, one may want to consider an automatic floor scrubber. An automatic floor scrubber can save you up to 80% of the man hours it would take to clean the floors by hand.

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.

The Different Types of Floor Scrubbers | Corona, CA

Slips, trips and falls are the top causes of workplace injury. Generally caused by human error and/or carelessly not paying attention, it is important to ensure your floors are clean and dry in order to curtail these accidents from happening. Perhaps the most popular piece of equipment that prevents slips, trips and falls is the industrial floor scrubber. Additionally, these floor scrubbers can boost productivity, reducing operating costs and saving time by more quickly cleaning the warehouse’s floor surfaces.

But the true problem is, what type of floor scrubber is right for you and your current floor maintenance needs? After all, the point is to reduce the injuries. You need to be sure your investment is going to be the perfect fit for your needs. Here’s a guide to the two main categories of floor scrubbers — walk behind and ride-on scrubbers — that will help you understand their differences:

Walk behind floor scrubbers. As their name implies, walk behind floor scrubbers are guided by the operator, who stands behind the machine; most walk behind floor scrubbers don’t actually need to be pushed, however, making the job easier for the operator. These floor scrubbers use a diluted cleaning solution for optimal efficiency and come in a variety of widths to handle aisles of all sizes.

Ride-on floor scrubbers. Ride-on floor scrubbers are ideal for larger floor spaces that need to be cleaned in a short amount of time, as they can be operated continuously. These floor scrubbers can carry large amounts of water and are equipped with high-power batteries. These machines typically come equipped with floor sweeping capabilities, as well.

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.

What Soap Do I Clean My Floors With? | Corona, CA

When you have the daunting task of keeping a large building or structure clean, the floors are generally your biggest issue. After all, countless people are walking on your floors, and it is imperative that you keep them sparkling clean. Rather than doing the floors by hand, wasting time and energy, you have purchased yourself a floor scrubber. Now your workload has shrunken by at least half. What a relief! But wait…what soap does the thing use? It depends on what you’re keeping clean.

Because every building and occupant is different, there is no one soap that works across the board. If you are keeping a hospital clean, you wouldn’t need the same soap as say, a mechanic’s garage. Make sure you check the instructions. They are there for a reason – to protect the equipment so you can use it for as long as possible. But it is a good rule of thumb to use a low-foam detergent. Foam in the recovery tank will get into the vac motor and damage it. If this is happening, you may need to use de-foamer in the recovery tank.

While some amount of cleaner is good to remove dirt, in most instances, when just cleaning a dusty warehouse floor, less detergent is usually okay. That’s why you have a machine – to do the grunt work. Give the solution some dwell time on the floor so that the solution has time to work. Then go back with the scrubber. If you haven’t had a floor scrubber before, you may have to make a couple passes the first time to get it clean.

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.
