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.
Labor accounts for a large amount of any business's costs. In fact, it’s the greatest cost for most businesses. With that being said, finding ways to improve your janitorial team’s efficiency is likely a priority. However, identifying ways to streamline cleaning tasks without sacrificing your facility’s cleanliness, health, and safety may seem like a daunting task, especially now. You’re likely faced with labor shortages, greater cleaning expectations, tighter budgets, and tougher standards. All of which further emphasize the need for efficient cleaning practices.
No matter the type of facility you have, the indoor air quality (IAQ) of your building is important. Your building’s IAQ is essential to the health and safety of your staff and guests. Poor indoor air quality can have adverse effects on the health of your building’s occupants.

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.
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.
