If you’ve never used a floor scrubber machine before, don’t worry – it’s not as complicated as it may seem. In this blog post, we will give you a step-by-step guide on how to use a floor scrubber machine.
We’ll also provide some tips on how to get the most out of your machine. So, whether you’re new to floor scrubbing or just want to make sure you’re doing it correctly, read on for helpful advice!
Initial Inspection and Starting Process
The first step when operating a floor scrubber is to inspect the machine and make sure that there is no damage to the main components of the machine such as the scrubbing pads, squeegee blade, and vacuum hose.
It is also recommended to check the battery level and make sure that the machine is properly plugged in before starting and has the required amount of charge for the cleaning job. The power cable should be properly coiled and not tangled to avoid any accidents.
After the machine has been inspected, it is time to start the scrubbing process. The first thing you need to do is fill the tank with clean water and the appropriate amount of cleaning solution.
After filling the tank, push the power button and then pull on the handle towards it to turn on the machine. To start scrubbing, turn on the machine by pushing down the power button and begin manoeuvring the machine forwards.
Controlling the Machine
The goal of utilising this piece of cleaning equipment is to produce a brilliant shine and a clean floor surface, so learning how to control the machine effectively is critical.
The floor scrubber should be moved in a back and forth motion, going over each section of the hard floor multiple times. Don’t forget that this machine is commonly used in cleaning and polishing floors over large areas so you’ll need to be careful not to move too quickly and miss spots.
It is also important to keep the brushes working by occasionally lifting the machine off the ground, this will help to prevent any streaks, lines, or scuff marks from being left behind on the floor.
The floor pads should also be changed regularly, depending on the type of flooring you are cleaning.
If you are unsure about which pads to use, always consult the machine’s user manual or speak to a professional here at Cleanhire UK before using the floor scrubber.
What To After You’ve Finished
After you have completed scrubbing the floor, it is important to empty any remaining water and cleaning solution from the tanks.
Then, simply rinse out the tanks with clean water and allow them to dry before storing the machine away.
It is also a good idea to give the floor a once over with a mop or cloth to pick up any build up of dirt or debris that may have been left behind on the scrubbing pads and brushes.
After use, make sure the scrubber is plugged back in so it’s ready for its next usage.
If you are using a pedestrian scrubber, ensure that the steering handle is in an upright position when storing the machine away to prevent any accidental damage.
Now that you know how to use a floor scrubber machine, put it to good use and get those floors sparkling clean in no time!
