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.
