Modern industrial and commercial floor cleaners can transform even the most challenging of maintenance jobs into short projects. Still, there can be times when an older unit needs to be replaced with a more updated version. What are some of the signs that a change is required? Let’s take a closer look.

Reduced Cleaning and/or Drying Capacity

The mechanical parts within a floor cleaning unit will naturally degrade over time. This is an inevitability. You might have noticed that the machine is not performing as well as it once was. If you have undertaken all of the required maintenance suggestions and the problem remains, it could well be time to consider a new model.

Movement Issues

Many modern industrial floor cleaners supply the user with a certain amount of forward momentum. However, this capacity can become compromised. There are instances when a lack of movement is caused by a simple issue such as a blown fuse. Other circumstances including a broken transaxle or completely worn brushes are more associated with a replacement.

Suction Problems

The vacuum motor is one of the most important components of any floor cleaning system. This motor could break down or even cease functioning entirely. Check to make certain that all fuses are in place. If there are no outwardly apparent causes, there might be issues with the internal wiring. This is even more likely if the unit happens to be relatively old. Purchasing a new machine can represent a cost-effective solution, as these units are equipped with hefty warranties.

Visual Damage

Let’s not fail to mention that these floor cleaners are often used within locations visible to the public (such as showrooms and warehouses). Cleaners which are dirty or otherwise damaged could have a negative impact upon the company in question. Unfortunately, this can occur over time simply due to overuse. If you happen to notice that the unit appears unfit for the surroundings, it is certain time to consider a new model. After all, a company which is able to display clean and up-do-date equipment is more likely to impress its customers. Mechanical issues are not the only reasons to purchase an upgrade.

Commercial floor cleaners are known for their resilience and yet, every machine is associated with a limited lifespan. If you happen to notice any of the symptoms mentioned above, please speak with a Cleanhire representative to learn about your replacement options.

Refurbished floor cleaning machines can represent reliable and cost-effective solutions to tackle challenging industrial and commercial projects. While the units supplied by Cleanhire are some of the most modern in the industry, they still need to be properly maintained. Let’s take a quick look at some sure-fire tips and suggestions.

Filters and Recovery Tanks

As these portions of the machine are the most likely to be exposed to chemicals and solvents, it only makes sense that they need to be regularly maintained. Periodically empty and thoroughly rinse any recovery tanks. Examine the associated filters for clogs and similar debris. Remove any foreign matter, as blockages can result in a future shutdown.

Pads and Brushes

Cleaning pads and brushes are designed to stand up to a significant amount of wear and tear. However, their lifespan will be dramatically reduced if not cared for properly. Always clean and rinse these surfaces after each project. Any chemicals that are allowed to sit will cause undue harm and degradation.

Spray Jets

Certain floor cleaning machines are equipped with a series of jets to remove ground-in dirt and stains. As you could imagine, these nozzles can become clogged over time (particularly if you are using a source of water known for high mineral content). Sporadically check to make sure that they are spraying properly. If you notice any issues, remove the affected nozzles and soak them in a combination of vinegar and water overnight. This mildly acidic solution will help to remove any mineral deposits.

The Use of Organic and Environmentally Friendly Solvents

Sometimes referred to as “green” solvents, these organic compounds do not contain any of the harsh solvents associated with their chemical counterparts. Not only will this help to protect the environment, but many chemicals can cause undue wear and tear on internal parts. By limiting their presence, you will be proactively increasing the lifespan of your cleaning machine. Of course, there are many different formulations on the market to choose from and the chances are high that you will be able to find one which suits your needs.

These professional maintenance tips will help to extend the lifespan and efficacy of your second hand floor scrubber.
