Some large areas don’t suffer from sticky or wet dirt so the best thing for these is a factory sweeper, which will remove dust and small bits of rubbish from the floor with no washing – this is particularly suitable for areas where fork lift trucks or staff cross, because the floors don’t get wet and so don’t constitute a slipping hazard.
How Does A Factory Sweeper Work?
To remove dust and small debris, a factory sweeper has a side brush which guides bits and pieces which may be on the floor into the path of the self-contained rotating broom which is across the entire width of the machine. This broom throws the debris into the collection hopper and the dust is kept out of the air and held in the machine by the use of dust filters.
Again, this is an important health and safety issue, especially for staff who spend a lot of time in the cleaned areas. For very dusty areas, a ride on factory sweeper such as the Rider 1201 is a good one to choose because it has a vacuum attachment as standard which can be used for areas too small for the sweeper but where dust and debris might otherwise gather such as on barriers and in racking. Factory sweepers are so much more efficient than hand sweeping, because they don’t raise dust into the air and also keep far larger amounts of debris confined in the bin than any single person with a dustpan or picker could possibly do.
For areas such as warehouses and construction sites where dust and debris are constantly being created, a factory sweeper is really the only option – not only are they more efficient in cleaning but they are a much more financially viable choice than the army of cleaners which would be otherwise needed.
