A ride on sweeper can make it much easier to keep your business’ floors clean, but in order for you to reap the full benefits of this type of machinery, it’s important that you understand the proper way to operate the machine. Prepping your ride on sweeper for operation can help ensure that you can fully clean your floors and can also help extend the lifespan of your sweeper.
The first step is to ensure that the ride on sweeper is fully charged. Most ride on sweepers will run anywhere from two and a half to four hours on a full charge, so if you have a large surface area to cover, you want to make sure the sweeper is fully charged to avoid the machine dying on you before you’ve completed the job.
Next, ensure that all the hoses are properly connected as well as the squeegee. If you forget any of these or if they aren’t properly connected, then your sweeper won’t function properly. Check for any leaks or damages in the hoses, and if you find any, make sure you get them repaired before operating the sweeper.
Make sure that the tank is filled with clean water, and also ensure that you fill the solution reservoir with the appropriate type of cleaning agent. Most ride-on sweepers can accept neutral cleaning agents, but others can also utilize chemical solutions like de-greasers.
Finally, attach the correct pad or brush to the ride-on sweeper, and then you’re good to go.
