Selecting An Industrial Floor Cleaner

A clean industrial cleaning environment is critical for worker safety, increased productivity, and improved product quality. This is the reason why you need to select the best industrial floor cleaners for your plant. In fact, the cleaning equipment you choose is nearly as important as the production equipment.

A clean environment conveys a quality image that results in high employee morale and positive reaction from your visitors and clients. Keeping the environment clean adds value to the business. However, the process of selecting the appropriate cleaning equipment isn’t easy. Sometimes you may end up purchasing cleaning equipment that doesn’t deliver quality cleaning.

Below are some factors that you need to consider when buying industrial floor cleaners.

Operator Visibility

Check whether the cleaning equipment provides the cleaner with a clear view of the surface to be cleaned. This is critical for both the safety of the worker and better performance. It is crucial to have a cleaning equipment that allows the cleaner to have a clear view of the dumping without the need to lean his head outside of the machine.

Forcing the operator to lean outside may result in accidents hence unnecessary compensation. The equipment you choose should allow the operator to sit straight and keep his head inside during sweeping and dumping operations.

Ease of use

This is a critical factor that you need to consider while purchasing your cleaning equipment especially when the industrial floor cleaners are going to be used by more than one person. Check whether the controls are easy to understand and the level of training the operators will need to undertake before they can comfortably work with the equipment.

Can the operators handle minor problems on their own or will you need a specialist every time the machine breaks down? Unless the cleaners can easily be controlled by the available cleaning staff, the cleaning productivity is set to suffer.

Cleaning Speed

The floor cleaner that you choose should be able to perform cleaning jobs quickly. Improved speed will allow your cleaners to concentrate on the cleaning activities effectively. You should also check whether the cleaning equipment offers fast drying times since it helps in resuming work quickly hence saving a lot of time.

The Tank Capacity / Water Usage

Scrubbers that have a large solution tank capacity in relation to their size and offer reduced water/detergent use will lower your operating costs. Such scrubbers are also environmentally friendly since they reduce the volume of your waste stream hence improving your cleaning productivity.
