Factors to Consider When Buying a Floor Scrubber

With the many brands and types of floor scrubber available on the market these days, choosing one for your business can be very daunting. Buying the wrong sort can lead to a poor result or the need for additional units, which can be impractical. Before shopping around, make sure to take into account the following important factors.

Type of the Floor

What type of facility do your manage? Is it an office where the floor is most likely tiles or marble or is it a warehouse that has a concrete floor. You need to know the type of floor you will be cleaning before choosing a floor scrubber, because some floor scrubbers are designed to clean particular types of floor. If they are used on the wrong type of floor, you may not be satisfied by the machine’s performance or either the machine or the floor may get damaged.

Type of Dirt to Deal With

You also have to consider the type of dirt the machine will be dealing with. If you own a factory where harmful chemicals spill on the floor, then you should implement a rather special kind of floor cleaning technique. It may still involve the use of industrial floor scrubbers but there must be a pre-cleaning step where the excess fluids and stains on the floor will be scrubbed off before the thorough cleanup takes place.


The manner by which the floor scrubber will be operated is also a factor to consider. If the floor area to be cleaned includes narrow and small spaces, then the best option is a walk-behind scrubber. If the space is free from any conspicuous obstacles, you can choose a ride-on.

Do not settle for anything less than the perfect floor scrubbers. While they can help you save a lot in the long run, they are still an expensive set of asset. So make sure to go to the best supplier and make the right choices.
