Buying floor scrubbers can seem like a daunting task if you have no clear idea what your business needs or how to find the best equipment in Los Angeles. Aside from doing a cost-benefit analysis of whether to buy new or used scrubbers, be sure to consider these factors to make a smart decision.
Getting the Right Size
Don’t run out and buy the largest floor scrubber you can find for your business unless you’re certain you actually need it. While it may seem that a decent sized scrubber will make cleaning more efficient, if you own a small warehouse or a unit with lots of sharp turns, a large scrubber may not be the best choice.
Many floor scrubbers on the market today are designed to reduce the amount of water used. Buying one of these units can, therefore, help you reduce the amount of time your labor force spends filling up and emptying containers. Whether you buy new or used, opt for a machine with the capacity to scrub an entire room clean in a single outing. Look for models that let you choose from a low-moisture or deep-cleaning options to conserve water and increase up-time. Look for a scrubber that has a large water tank to improve productivity.
Charging the System
The charging unit can have a dramatic effect on how well your machine functions. Especially in a place as populated as Los Angeles, reducing your overall carbon footprint is a responsible business choice. Look for machines that offer onboard battery chargers instead of a machine charging dock that emits noxious fumes. Onboard battery chargers that use gel batteries are safer since there is no chance that a battery will emit toxic fumes or spill battery acid. These machines also increase the amount of time in action as your labor force won’t have to continually return to base to recharge.
