HOW DOES A FLOOR SCRUBBER WORK?
The auto scrubber works on three basic principles. These principles are, wet the floor, scrub (clean) the floor and then suck the dirty water up off the floor. Advances in auto scrubber technology have made it possible that floors can be cleaned in a fraction of the time reducing man hours and producing a much cleaner floor than any other traditional method of cleaning and scrubbing.
WHY INVEST IN AN AUTOSCRUBBER?
No doubt the most common reason people invest in an automatic scrubber is to save money. In fact, the right equipment—the correct size machine, with the right features—can save thousands of dollars each year in labor costs.

HOW EFFECTIVELY DOES THE UNIT CLEAN AND WHAT SURFACES CAN I CLEAN WITH IT?
Our range of floor cleaning machine are perfect for removing dirt and grime from almost all types of hard flooring in a single operation.

HOW DO I CHOOSE THE PROPER FLOOR PADS FOR MY FLOOR CLEANING UNIT?

DO I NEED A RIDE ON OR WALK BEHIND FLOOR CLEANING MACHINE?
Choosing the right auto scrubber for the job is very important. There are many sizes of auto scrubbers which are usually measured by their cleaning path. The cleaning path is gauged by the diameter of the scrubbing brush. Common auto scrubbers range in size from 17 inches all the way up to 50 inches. Most smaller units are man powered and use human strength to propel the cleaning unit along. Larger auto scrubbers utilize a wheel drive system that uses a transaxle or motor that propels the unit up to three miles per hour. These larger auto scrubbers known as ride on auto scrubbers have a seat where the rider sits and is driven much like a car. These large ride on units are commonly used in areas measuring over 30,000 square feet and can clean an area that would have taken 10 people to clean in the past.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CYLINDRICAL AND DISK SCRUBBING?
Disk Scrubbing: Disk scrubbers wash, or strip wax from the floor. Disk machines offer easy to change, variably aggressive, pads or brushes. These features make disk scrubbers ideal for retail applications where pads are not only inexpensive, but offer a great deal of surface contact for scuff mark control and floor shine.
For industrial applications, disk brushes often make sense because they can accept greater down pressure than cylindrical brooms, and heavily soiled floors benefit from heavy down pressure.
Cylindrical Scrubbing: A cylindrical scrub brush system will (wet) sweep small amounts of solid debris into a removable tray while also washing the floor. You eliminate the manual pre sweeping of your factory or warehouse floor for greater productivity and fewer clogs in the squeegee section of the scrubber. Plus there is often no need for an additional separate sweeper or even a combination machine when a cylindrical machine will do the job.
Cylindrical scrubbers usually turn their brushes at a speed that is three times the rotation of a disk brush. This will often offset the greater surface area advantage that disk scrub decks offer. Cylindrical scrub brushes do keep less bristle surface in contact with the floor, but the revolving line of bristles will rotate on the floor with three times the rotation frequency of disk brush bristles.
WHICH IS BETTER?
It’s all boils down to preference. Both will clean your floor! However, most customers seems to be “Pro Disk” and here’s why: Disk scrub brushes have the advantage on the issue of lower initial cost and simplicity of maintenance. A disk brush will last longer and a replacement brush usually will cost less.
Cylindrical decks (as an option) will typically increase your scrubber cost by $500 to $1000.
Plus you really need to add side brooms to cylindrical systems to steer the debris into the path of the of the scrub deck and out of the outer edges of the squeegee.
WHAT CLEANING CHEMICAL CAN BE USED WITH MY FLOOR CLEANING UNIT?
You can use any low foam detergent or degreaser.
