Before using a scrubber, there are several steps that you should take first, in order to have the best results in clean floors as well as a reduction to any potential damage to the machine.
First, you will want to make sure that your floor scrubber has enough battery charge to complete the job. It is recommended to only charge when needed as doing so too often can reduce the life of the batteries.
Second, make sure you sweep or dry mop your floors, so no debris is left behind on the surface. If there is a significant amount of dust or loose dirt left behind, it can cause damage to the squeegee as well as additional wear and tear on a brush or pad driver. Dirt that becomes wet can create many issues in cleaning as well, as the mud then can spread around and become more difficult to remove.
Once those steps are complete, you will want to fill up the automatic scrubber solution tank along with your desired cleaning solution (neutral cleaners typically provide the best results on sealed floors and alkaline cleaner for concrete). Then you turn the machine on and adjust it to select your desired settings.
You then will attach the brush, lower the squeegee and begin operation.
You typically can run the scrubber with a single pass, though for dirtier surfaces you may want to run a “pre-scrub”, or a “double scrub” in which you first do a run with only cleaning solution, with the squeegee up off the floor, and then run the scrubber afterwards as you typically would.
