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.
