Common Types of Floors and the Floor Scrubbers that Work Best on Them

Share This Post

Keeping your office presentable entails thorough cleaning on a regular basis. The floor, in particular, is the most vulnerable to wear and tear simply because it is the most exposed to direct contact with shoes and dirt from outside.

While there are plenty of floor scrubbers in Los Angeles, it does not mean that you can use just about any type for whatever kind of floor you have. Different kinds of floor materials have different cleaning needs, so take note of them before you end up damaging your floors by using the wrong type of cleaning equipment.

Floor Scrubber

Hardwood Floors

When dealing with hardwood floors, you may need to use special chemicals to get the level of cleanliness and shine you desire. Some floors may need just a bit of water and regular sweeping or vacuuming, but for a deep, thorough clean, a floor buffer may be necessary. Look for floor buffers with soft bristles that operate at low speeds to avoid scratching your floors.

Cement or Tile

An industrial floor scrubber is ideal for floors made of cement or tiles. The concrete surfaces of these materials can handle the fast rotation of the brush bristles, but force should still be applied in moderation to avoid unnecessary scratches. For large floors such as those in warehouses, for example, get a ride-on floor scrubber for the most efficient cleaning.

Carpeted Floors

If your floor is carpeted, you need a steam cleaner. These industrial machines are designed specifically to deep clean carpets. This practical machine allows for the soap and steam to mix together, which then dislodges the dirt stuck on the carpet threads and its vacuum mechanism sucks it dry.

If you are looking for a handy tool that would make for a good, cost-friendly investment so you can clean your floors well, try checking out shops like Total Clean Equipment for used floor scrubbers in Phoenix and elsewhere.
