Seven degrees of floor preparation tools

Floor sweeping, 1919 style (Kremlička - Myčky).
Floor cleaning has come a long way from this era, as depicted in Rudolf Kremlička’s painting from 1919. Had they had the benefit of a Eureka Magnum…
Among Cleanhire’s wealth of floor sweeping devices is the range of sweepers by Eureka. The Italian company’s lean green machines are designed for a wealth of environments, from school corridors to airport terminals. Also playgrounds and focal piazzas. In walk behind or ride-on forms, they offer petrol, diesel, LPG and battery versions of their products.

Their entry level floor sweeping device is the Picobello 101, which can sweep up to 2.100 square metres per hour. The top of the range model is the Magnum. Its capacity, a staggering 18.720 square metres per hour. Continue reading “Floor Sweeping’s Eureka Moment”

Whether you’re cleaning the tightest of crevices or the most spacious of rooms, we at Clean Hire UK have a wealth of floor scrubber dryers to suit your requirements. For hire, these range from handheld scrubbers to sit-on cleaning machines. Each and every one of them are built for high-traffic settings, particularly school corridors and mainline railway stations.

Our magnificent seven floor scrubbers

 1. Vispa 35 E-B-BS

The Vispa 35 E-B-BS is the smallest of Comac Floor Scrubbers. Like a snappy little terrier, it can get to the tightest of crevices and has the tenacity of a Jack Russell at full tilt. Mains and rechargeable battery versions are available for hire. This model is ideal for congested areas.

2. Media scrubber dryers

The second smallest floor scrubbers really pack a punch, especially in hard-to-clean areas where deep cleaning is required. There is three variants of the Media floor scrubbers (65 BT/75 BT/60 BTS). The third one is the scrubbing-sweeping version with 61cm cylindrical brushes. 65 BT and 75 BT models have 66cm and 76cm disc brushes.

3. Omnia scrubber dryers

Comac’s Omnia range is their entry level model of walk-behind floor scrubbers. As with the smaller Media range, no expense is spared in its ability to clean the dirtiest of floors. Besides its disc brushes, other accessories include ppl or tynex brushes.

4. Innova scrubber dryers

The Innova scrubber dryers is Comac’s entry level range of sit-on floor scrubbers. One wersion with a 61cm disc brush covers four working widths: 65, 75, 85 and 100 centimetres. Another version with a single cylindrical brush has a 61 cm working width. On launch, the Innova 60B was designed to replace walk-behind floor scrubbers. Its compact size allows for use in lifts and narrow corridors.

Other versions include the Innova 65B/M, Innova 75B/M and the Innova 85B/M. The manual option (denoted by the letter M) allows for easy control of the squeegee and the brush head via two independent levers.

5. Flexy scrubber dryers

Designed for large and medium sized areas, the Flexy 75/85 B and 70/85 BS scrubbing machines are available in both the scrubbing and scrubbing-sweeping versions. Being sit-on floor scrubbers, both variants are designed with all-round visibility and maximum safety in mind. Both come with headlights and a warning horn, making them suitable for all environments.

6. Ultra scrubber dryers

For bigger areas and deep cleaning, the Ultra range of floor scrubbers does the hard work with great ease. Available in scrubbing and scrubbing-sweeping versions they are simple to use, even for beginners. The Ultra 85 and Ultra 100 series of models have low noise levels which allows for quiet operation. Safety features include speed regulation (which slows the device down on bends) and an acoustic alarm, whilst the vehicle is reversing.

7. The C130 scrubber dryer

Designed for mainline railway stations and airports, the C130 floor scrubbers come in battery and diesel versions. Four counter rotating brushes and a cylindrical brush conveys dirt into its removable hopper. Whereas the battery version has a maximum working area of 25,000 square metres, the diesel version can go anywhere. Its working width of 130 cm makes for a dependable workhorse. Though bulky, its performance and manoeuvrability is light on the user.

The design team here at Clean hire have provided a visual guide to the importance of floor cleaning in professional and home environments. Many people take for granted how floor cleaning can impact a business, for example, if your employee has a slip or a trip in your premises this can lead to legal action.

It is extremely important that your business premises have their floors cleaned regularly to adhere to health and safety standards, especially if you are in the food/catering industry.

Within the infographic, we have listed some interesting statistics such as who and how long on average a woman spends in her lifetime cleaning floors. Feel free to share this infographic on your website using the embed code below.

Dirty flooring can lead to bacteria and fungus growth

This can cause a variety of problems for both employees and customers. For example, dirty flooring in an office can lead to respiratory problems for employees due to the dust and dirt that becomes airborne.

Dirty flooring in a restaurant can lead to food poisoning as bacteria will be transferred from the floor onto unclean surfaces and then into the food.

Health and Safety Statistics in the Workplace

As you can see from our infographic below, slips and trips are the most common cause of major injuries at work. With around 90% resulting in broken bones, it’s evident that an accident in the workplace can have serious health and safety implications for employees.

Legal actions following an injury can be extremely damaging to business, especially where the public is involved. Insurance may only cover up 20% of the cost of an accident, with the remaining 80% often falling on the business.

To ensure your employees are safe and to avoid costly legal actions, it is important to have a cleaning schedule in place which includes floor cleaning. By regularly cleaning your floors you can help reduce the risk of accidents happening in the workplace.

Cleaning Floors is Part of Human Nature

According to our research, 80% of women consider clean floors a top priority for the home, while only 66% of men feel the same way. Most women between ages of 25 and 44 vacuum every 2.25 days or more.

While men between ages of 18 and 24 vacuum every 0.75 days or less, only 56% of young men in this age group report they even own a vacuum cleaner!

A woman spends an average of 12900 hours cleaning floors in her lifetime, while a man spends an average of 9000 hours cleaning floors in his lifetime.

From these statistics, it is clear that floor cleaning is something that both genders take seriously and consider an important task.

What Not To Use To Clean Floors


Vinegar is a popular choice for cleaning floors, as it is inexpensive and can be used to clean a variety of surfaces. However, vinegar should not be used on wood floors, as it can damage the finish.


If you don’t get the stain out, it will only spread. The salt in your carpet cloth may worsen the problem and cause discolouration.

Wax and Oil

Wax and oil can build up on your floor surface, which will cause it to become slippery. This is dangerous for everyone who walks on the floor you have just waxed or polished. It can also assist to minimise the amount of moisture absorbed.

White Wine

It is a total myth that white wine removes red wine stains. In fact, if you apply white wine to a red wine stain it will make the problem worse.

To Conclude

The infographic we’ve shared is a helpful guide on the importance of floor cleaning and what not to use. It’s crucial that you maintain your floors in order to avoid health and safety hazards such as slipping, tripping, or falling down.
