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.

When the cord on your equipment doesn’t quite reach the outlet, extension cords offer a way for you to work beyond the equipment’s standard power cord length. Extension cords provide electric power to a device, or in this case, piece of janitorial cleaning equipment when its own power cord does not reach an electrical outlet. Extension cords enable staff to work beyond the machine’s typical reach for improved productivity. Without extension cords, your staff would have to transfer your equipment’s cord to a new outlet more frequently, reducing productivity and increasing overall cleaning times. But if they are not used with the proper precautions, they can be extremely dangerous.
