Within the industrial cleaning industry, efficiency is key. Many businesses have more than one dedicated full time cleaner, but only supply them with basic materials such as a mop and sponge. This has several issues: cleaning will be slower, less thorough and difficult for the staff members using manual labor to clean what may be thousands of square meters of space.
There are plenty of types of janitorial equipment available to make the cleaning process less labor-intensive. Which ones are most suitable for your Los Angeles area business?
A floor scrubber is used when a surface needs to be washed with water or a chemical rinse. They are commonly found in hospitals and healthcare facilities, supermarkets and warehouses from Phoenix to Pawtucket, but many large and small businesses use them as well.
Floor scrubbers are mechanical equipment that incorporate brushes, sponges and squeegees in combination with cleaning liquids to thoroughly clean and scrub a floor. A ride-on floor scrubber is faster than a push scrubber, but the latter allows the user to access certain areas that a bigger machine cannot.
Either type of machine performs efficiently; the operator still commands the machine to do the work—rather than doing it manually themselves.
If you need a piece of equipment for outdoor use, or one that needs to pick up debris, then a floor sweeper is a sensible option. Organizations which may opt for a floor sweeper include street-cleaning services and businesses with large parking lots.
Floor sweepers come in ride-on versions or a model that attaches to the rear of a truck for large-scale tasks. The large brushes pick up debris at a rate that is many times faster than that which a human can accomplish. Plus, the machine covers a much larger area than a person ever could.
Floor sweepers are also efficient at removing trash without a person needing to touch such debris. Consequently, the user is less exposed to germs, bacteria, and hazardous materials than if picking up the debris manually.
Clearly, the most efficient janitorial equipment for a business is mechanized rather than manual. Save time, money and physical exertion by selecting one of the above pieces of equipment for your business’ cleaning needs.
