Purchasing an industrial floor scrubber is a big investment, so properly maintaining your machine and getting the most life out of it is a priority.

Routine maintenance procedures are vital to keeping your scrubber in tip-top shape and helping you get the best return on your investment. Performing regular maintenance also reduces the risk of downtime due to repair or service needs. Follow these tips before and after using your floor scrubber in Los Angeles to prolong its lifespan.

Before Using Your Floor Scrubber

Check your batteries (if applicable!): There are four types of floor scrubber batteries, and each has its own particular maintenance requirements. No matter which type you have, always check to make sure it is fully-charged before scrubbing. Inspect the battery terminals for signs of corrosion, check for loose connections, and, if you have wet flooded batteries, maintain the proper water level.

Check Your Drain or Hose for Leaks or Clogs

Before using your floor scrubber, make sure there are no cracks or debris in the main vacuum hose or drain hose. If you spot debris, remove it, and back flush the vacuum hose if necessary before flushing it with clean water. If you notice cracks or leaks, contact our Service Department for a replacement immediately.

Check the Debris Tray

If your floor scrubber has a built-in debris capture tray, check it for debris like food particles, wood chips or wrappers before use. Larger pieces of debris can clog the tray and cause it to overflow.

After Using Your Floor Scrubber

Drain Solution and Recovery Tanks

Your industrial floor scrubber has two tanks: one that collects dirty solution and one that holds clean solution. Empty both after use, every time. Leaving solution can create a sludge mixture, cause odors and encourage the growth of bacteria.

Rinse Your Tanks

After draining both tanks completely, thoroughly rinse them with clean water to make sure there is no leftover grime or debris.

Store Your Unit Properly

Always store your tanks with the lids open to reduce the risk of odors, mildew and mold.

Clean the Squeegee Assembly

Rinse and wipe down your squeegee assembly after use to avoid rust and corrosion. Remove your squeegee, give it a good wash and wipe it dry to remove dirt and grime.
