Floor Scrubbers: Making the Right Choice

We have a large inventory of floor scrubbers here at Total Clean, and there is a machine for every industry, application and budget. As you start the process of choosing the right floor scrubber for your needs, keep these considerations in mind to make the right decision.

Floor Scrubbers Making the Right Choice

Electric vs battery operated

Generally, corded floor scrubbers are less expensive than battery units and require less maintenance, however, they also cover less floor space machine and are less maneuverable. When choosing between electric and battery-operated models, be realistic about the space that you need to clean and the type of maneuvers that you’ll have to make with the scrubber.

Commercial vs. industrial

What type of space are you cleaning? Commercial scrubbers are appropriate for grocery stores, schools and other retail, healthcare or educational establishments, while industrial scrubbers are a better fit for factories.

Size of the location vs the size of the machine
Weigh the cost of labor to clean the given space against the coverage per hour rating for the scrubber. What would be most cost effective for your business? The machine you choose should drive down labor costs and therefore save you money over time.

Budget
There are a wide variety of floor scrubbers on the market including new, used, demo and reconditioned machines. If you want to use a certain scrubber brand, purchasing a demo or reconditioned model can be a great way to get that brand name at a lower price. Purchasing well-maintained used floor scrubbers also saves you money.

Maintenance costs
Maintenance expenses include wear items and consumables such as floor pads, squeegee blades, and brushes. Talk to our team about projected maintenance expenses before making your final decision.

If you’re still unsure about the best scrubber for your company, talk to similar sized businesses about their cleaning needs. Better yet, you can consult a trusted dealer such as Total Clean Equipment that caters to businesses in Los Angeles to identify the exact floor scrubber model that suits your requirements.
