Eco-friendly floor cleaning means using less abrasive chemicals on your floors, prepping your floors properly, and using the right equipment to get the job done.
The Right Sweeper
Depending on the size of your facility, you need to carefully consider the type of sweeper you plan on using. There are two main types of sweepers that are suitable for commercial applications—rider and walk behind. Your choice of the type of sweeper depends largely on the amount of area you need to cover. Rider floor sweepers are best suited for large areas like stadiums. Walk behind sweepers, on the other hand, are best for situations where you need more control over your cleaning.
The Right Scrubber
Similar to sweepers, scrubbers offer both a rider and walk-behind options. The walk behind options provide more control and it’s easier to clean a particular area. They also require more effort though. Rider scrubbers are best when you need to quickly clean a large area.
The Best of Both Worlds
Another option is a combination sweeper and scrubber. This option is ideal for people who need to get work done fast. They provide a highly aggressive form of cleaning that scrubs and cleans at the same time. When you need the ultimate in cleaning power and you need to get a job done quickly, a combination sweeper and scrubber is the best option. Combination sweeper-scrubbers are designed to accommodate a driver, which makes them an exceptional choice for large areas.
