Autoscrubbers are valuable in speeding up the process of cleaning the floors in your building. Unfortunately, while using a floor scrubber, you may have noticed a bad odor coming from the machine. When this happens, it may be difficult to know exactly what’s causing it or how to fix it.
Businesses in every market are faced with increased and more intensive cleaning requirements today. As a facility manager, you are likely challenged to find new ways to meet these demands without adding more cleaning staff. This calls for innovative solutions. One way to help your staff meet these new expectations is with the addition of autonomous cleaning equipment.
There are dozens of automatic floor scrubbers on the market today, and choosing the best one will require some thought and consideration. First, you’ll need to identify why you’re looking to invest in a new machine. Then, you’ll need to narrow down the best machine option for your facility based on a number of factors.
Adding a commercial floor buffer to your facility’s cleaning and maintenance program will increase worker productivity, improve cleaning results, and extend the life of your floor.
Commercial carpeting is popular in many facilities because of its ability to hide dirt and soils. Unfortunately, this same quality makes it hard to clean - unless you have the right commercial vacuum cleaner. There are hundreds of vacuums available on the market today and each is built to tackle unique surface cleaning challenges. Carpet pile is deep, and it traps soils and other contaminants in its fibers. We recommend the use of vacuums with a brush roller, typically upright machines, or backpacks and canisters with exceptionally strong air lift and static flow to reach deep into the carpet.
During the winter months, ice melt and salts are used to keep sidewalks and entryways from getting slippery, helping to protect the safety of building occupants. While protecting people from injury, ice melt creates a range of cleaning challenges inside the building. Although ice melt is applied outside in parking lots, on sidewalks, and near entryways, the particles can become stuck to people's shoes and be brought inside as they enter the building. The problem is, when ice melt residue gets tracked onto entryway matting, carpet, or other soft surfaces, it can leave unsightly white crusty stains. Additionally, ice melt is very alkaline, and when left on carpets, it attracts dirt and soils, leaving your carpets dirty and stained.
As you search for the best commercial vacuum cleaner for your business, you may be looking for a versatile vacuum that your staff can use throughout your entire facility. One of the biggest concerns when vacuuming is having to manage cords and stay within reach of an outlet. It is time-consuming and frustrating to have to worry about where the next outlet is. To alleviate this problem, operators may opt for a battery operated machine. However, staff is then limited to the life of a battery.
