Businesses that still resort to mops and buckets for their floor cleaning requirements often don’t realize how much time this wastes. In the case of convenience or retail stores, wet floors might deter customers from buying products due to the increased risk of accidents. Meanwhile, the traditional mop technique takes time to dry the wet floor and in the meantime you lose business.
The advantage of using a floor scrubbing machine is that areas that require regular floor cleaning are scrubbed and dried in just a few minutes, allowing work or foot traffic to proceed with minimal delay. First, the machine’s sprayer applies water and chemical solutions on the floor to dislodge the dirt, grease, and grime. The scrubber buffs the floor as it removes the dirt. A squeegee vacuum then leaves the surface fully clean and dry by sucking in the used water.
By contrast, a traditional mop only spreads the dirt in adjacent areas instead of removing it. The floor may dry up but the dirt and residue remain stuck to the floor. All that grime ends up spread out over a wider area, making subsequent clean-ups more difficult and time-consuming.
Industrial floor scrubbers are not difficult to operate, and require minimal maintenance. All it takes is water, some cleaning solution, and a little perseverance. Happy cleaning!
