Daily, Weekly and Monthly Floor Scrubber Maintenance Tips

Floor scrubbers make cleaning more efficient, but only if your equipment is in great working condition. Follow these tips to keep your floor scrubber in Los Angeles at peak performance: 

Daily Floor Scrubber Maintenance 

After using your floor scrubber, raise the squeegee from the floor and use a damp towel to wipe down the blades. Always store the squeegee in the up position. Remove and clean the pad drivers or brushes, drain the solution and recovery tanks of water and rinse the recovery tank with clean water. Remove any debris and remove the lid and drain hose cap to allow the hose to breathe and dry. Clean your machine as needed with a damp towel and approved solution and recharge the batteries if needed. 

Weekly Floor Scrubber Maintenance 

Each week, check the fluid levels in your floor scrubber’s batteries. Inspect the batteries for corroded or loose cables and keep the tops clean from corrosion. 

Monthly Floor Scrubber Maintenance 

Inspect your scrubber for leaks and loose fasteners. Tighten as needed. Use a silicon spray or appropriate grease to lubricate all pivot points. Position your machine over a floor drain and pour three gallons of hot water and an alkaline detergent into the solution tank to flush the system. Run your machine for about 45 seconds, then turn it off and let it sit overnight. The following day, drain the solution and use clean water to rinse the solution tank.
