How To Prepare Your Floors For Scrubbing

If you are looking for a way to cleanse your industrial business floors thoroughly for scrubbing, you can use a floor scrubber from SRS Cleaning Equipment to remove stubborn dirt and stains. 

Industrial floor cleaning equipment is an extremely effective method of cleaning work spaces of various sizes. However, it is essential to choose the right cleaner for your space and prepare your floors before scrubbing.

Here are some steps you can take to prepare your industrial floors for cleaning. 

Know the best practices

Depending on the floor type you have, different cleaning equipment and solutions have better suitability than others. Take the time to find out what the best floor cleaning practices are for your specific flooring. 

For example, some types of flooring, such as wood that is unsealed, should not be cleaned with water. It is also important to account for the size and the shape of the area you are cleaning. 

If you need to clean a large open area, use a ride on floor scrubber to ensure efficient deep cleansing.

Choose a cleaning machine

Choosing the right cleaning machine for your space is essential to get optimum results. For large indoor spaces, we stock a wide range of ride on and walk behind floor scrubbers to clean hard surfaces.

We also offer industrial floor sweepers that are ideal for clearing debris away, especially in outdoor settings. Our cleaning machines come in a variety of sizes, with larger equipment available for bigger areas should you require it.

Our ride on floor sweepers and scrubbers are the best option if you are required to clean a large space, such as a warehouse. Larger tank sizes are also available to hold more cleaning solution if necessary.

Prepare the equipment

Once you have made a decision on the best cleaning equipment for your business space, it is time to prepare the machine for use. Ensure you have the necessary cleaning solutions and double-check that it is charged sufficiently.

Before starting, locate safe power outlets to plug in your equipment. You will also need to find appropriate places to obtain water and dump waste before you start cleaning.

Clear the area 

Prior to cleaning, ensure that the area is clear of dust, dirt, and any rubbish before using your industrial floor scrubber. Move furniture and other items out of the space and dispose of any rubbish that may be in the way. You may even want to sweep the floor if necessary.

It is best to carry out the floor cleaning process during a time where there are few people using the space. For example, try doing it overnight or on a day when the business is closed.

Operate the machine safely

When operating a floor scrubber for industrial use, it is important to follow safety procedures. Check the equipment before use for any abnormalities because a faulty machine could result in damaged flooring.

Once you have completed the cleaning process, post signs nearby to notify people who may be passing through the area. If you fail to do this, it could result in a fall or injury.

Maintain the floor scrubber

Industrial floor cleaning equipment requires regular maintenance between each use. Equipment that is maintained properly will have greater longevity and better performance.

We advise frequently inspecting the engine air filter, oil, and tyre pressure. Ensure you check safety features too, including the lights and sensors. For ride on floor scrubbers, it is essential to check that the brakes and controls function properly. 

Finally, check that the brushes, squeegees, and cleaning tools are alway in proper shape before use.

At SRS Cleaning Equipment, we supply warehouses, factories, and construction sites throughout the UK with heavy-duty ride-on sweepers and scrubbers through our short term and long term (Flexi-Hire) fleet.
