Industrial sweepers are an essential component of any large-scale operation. They save time and money, as they can cover more ground than a broom or manual labour ever could. But if they’re not taken care of properly, they’ll lose their effectiveness and efficiency quickly. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips on how to make your industrial sweeper last longer and run smoother!
Examine the Status of All Brushes and Scrubbing Pads
The scrubbing pads and brushes underneath the sweeper brush are what actually do most of the work. If they’re not taken care of properly, they will be useless and ineffective when you go to use them.
Be sure that all brushes/scrubbing pads are in good condition before using your machine’s scrubber function!
Check the Condition of the Squeegee Blades
The squeegee blades are like the scrubbing pads and brushes. If they aren’t in good condition, you can say goodbye to a smooth sweep!
Make sure that all squeegee blade edges are free of bends or cracks before using your machine’s squeegee function!
Clean the Recovery Tank on a Regular Basis
The recovery tank on an industrial floor sweeper is used to collect the liquid and debris that is removed from a surface. If this tank isn’t cleaned regularly with the appropriate chemicals, it will become caked in grime, making it impossible for your machine’s vacuum function to operate effectively!
Examine the Filter Screen
The filter between the recovery tank and the vacuum tank is designed to help prevent fine particles from getting into the main machine. If this filter becomes clogged, your squeegee function and vacuum will be reduced or eliminated completely! A key indicator that the filter is damaged or past its lifespan is when the machine is having difficulty suctioning up liquids.
As you’ve seen, there are many simple things that can be done to reduce the wear and tear of your industrial sweeper. Contact Cleanhire UK today for more information on how we can help with any commercial floor cleaning equipment needs or other services that may relate to your business.
