There are many positive steps your business can take and investing in an industrial cleaning machine is one of them. Industrial floor cleaners increase productivity and efficiency in the workplace and considerably cut down time spent cleaning.
Scrubber driers and sweepers are, if you look after them properly, also far more economically and environmentally friendly than manual alternatives. This is because all of our walk behind sweepers and scrubbers, as well as our ride on models, are designed to use less resources.
However, there are some important things to consider to ensure you get the best results from your industrial cleaning machine.
Here are our top tips for maintaining and prolonging the life of your heavy duty floor cleaner.
The scrubbing ability of our machines is impressive but it is important to prepare the floor prior to using a scrubber drier. If your machine runs over debris you may find that the squeegee becomes blocked and damage, resulting in poor cleaning performance.
If you are making an attempt to wash and dry an area that has pieces of debris present, we advise using an industrial sweeper first to ensure you don’t damage your scrubber drier.
Store your industrial cleaning machine correctly
As the owner of an industrial floor scrubber or sweeper, it is essential to know how to store your machine correctly. It is extremely important to ensure storage of such machinery is indoors because rain or extreme weather conditions could cause damage that is irreversible.
You should also always ensure that the inside storage is dry, clean, and not too cold. If you have a large business or facility with multiple industrial cleaning machines to store, take care not to overcrowd them in storage because machines that are packed together tightly can become damaged, dented, and scratched which can hinder performance and be a costly fix.
Check the battery
If you choose a battery-powered machine from the SRS fleet, you must be diligent with monitoring its performance. You can do this by inspecting the battery every week. If you have lead acid batteries fitted you will need to check and top up the plates with distilled water. Alternatively, if you opt to have gel batteries fitted these are completely maintenance free!
Clean your industrial cleaning machine regularly
Keeping your floor sweeper or scrubber drier clean is perhaps the most obvious way to maintain the machine and prolong its life.
To ensure a scrubber drier stays in good working condition ensure the recovery tanks are flushed out with clean water and the squeegee is wiped clean. For sweepers always shake the dust filters after use and leave the collection bins empty. Similar to a vacuum, the collection area becomes filled with dust, debris, and dirt and if not regularly emptied, will result in poorer performance and possible blockages.
