Have you recently rented or purchased an industrial vacuum cleaner? The good news is that you will be able to maintain the cleanliness and safety of your premises like never before.
However, it is important to keep in mind some basic operational tips and suggestions so that you can make the most out of what they have to offer.
Let us take a look at what you need to know.
Becoming Acclimated with On-Board Controls
One of the benefits associated with an industrial vacuum cleaner hire service is that you have a host of makes and models to choose from. While the controls associated with each may be slightly different, they still serve to provide you with all of the most important functions such as:
- Choosing the type of surface to be cleaned.
- On/off switch
- Emergency stop
- The steering mechanism
If this is your first time utilising such a machine, it is wise to select a space free from pedestrian traffic and obstacles. You can then practice using the associated controls. Of course, be sure to refer to the owner’s manual for additional information.
Addressing Potential Hazards
Assuming that you understand the basic layout and components associated with your industrial vacuum cleaner, it is important to address hazards that may be located within specific environments. For example, these units may sometimes stir up clouds of dust or you might be forced to work within an area known for the presence of flammable gases. It is therefore critical that you follow all of the relevant safety instructions so that no accidents or injuries occur.
It is also wise to check to make certain that all moving parts are not worn or damaged before each use; particularly components such as scrubbing pads, wheels and drive belts. If you notice that these are distressed in any way, it is best to contact a professional to obtain a replacement.
Please note that this is only a basic overview of how to get started using your industrial vacuum cleaner. If you would like more in-depth information or advice, it is wise to contact a specialist at Cleanhire UK Ltd.
