How to Use a Commercial Floor Scrubber With Ease

Did you know that floor mopping consumes almost 40% of the working time for the average cleaning job? That might not pose much of a problem if you’re working in a small space or with a large team, but some industrial cleaning jobs need a more heavy-duty approach. That’s where commercial floor scrubbers come in.

Intelligent Design Manufacturing (IDM) has developed a line of industrial-strength floor-scrubbing machines that help building service contractors and their teams tackle large-scale cleaning projects more quickly and efficiently.

When used correctly, these machines can save you time, money, and hassle, and help you to achieve a more spotless, comprehensive clean. Let’s discuss some of the basics of how to use a commercial floor scrubber and explore the different machine options from IDM.

How to Use a Commercial Floor Scrubber in Your Space

Remember these 3 words: remove, don’t move. Floor-scrubbing machines are designed to completely remove debris from a hard flooring surface rather than moving it around. But, there are a few things you need to keep in mind to get the job done right the first time. 

The first thing to note is that an automatic floor scrubber is an all-in-one floor-cleaning tool. It dispenses water and cleaning solution onto a floor surface, uses rotating scrub brushes to remove debris, and vacuums the dirty water to prevent cross-contamination.

Here is a step-by-step breakdown of how to use a commercial floor scrubber to clean your floors: 

  • Step 1: Select the appropriate pad or brush for your cleaning job. You can choose between soft brushes, aggressive brushes, or everyday brushes – depending on the specific needs of your job site.
  • Step 2: Set your water and brush speed levels to your desired specifications. 
  • Step 3: Turn on the machine and run it over your intended cleaning location. 
  • Step 4: Empty the contaminated water from your machine’s recovery tank.
  • Step 5: Admire your sparkling clean floors!

High-quality floor scrubbers like those offered by IDM can empower cleaning professionals to clean more efficiently, safely, and effectively on a consistent basis.

How Much Maintenance Do Floor Scrubbers Require?

Every machine is unique, but IDM’s floor scrubbers require minimal ongoing maintenance to remain in good working order.

Our commercial floor cleaners are wireless and rechargeable, so you don’t have to worry about power cords or battery packs during operation. IDM’s batteries all come with a 1-year warranty, so you don’t have to worry about replacing your machine’s battery while you’re getting to know your new equipment.

It’s important to regularly check and clean your brush heads, pads, tanks, and hoses to keep your machine free of mold and bacteria. You should also empty your recovery tank after each use to prevent the spread of germs.

We recommend that users periodically lubricate hinges and wheels to keep their floor scrubbers running smoothly. Taking good care of your machine is the easiest way to extend the life of each unit and maximize the ROI on your investment.

What Types of Floor Scrubbers Does IDM Offer?

We recognize that all cleaning jobs are different. That’s why we’ve developed a wide range of floor-cleaning solutions to help you tackle projects of different sizes and scales. Here is a basic rundown of the types of floor scrubbers available from IDM.

Micro Scrubbers

Micro scrubbers like the X-Scrub Pro are designed for maximum ease of use. These machines are manually operated and pushed throughout a job site, are completely wireless, and can run unencumbered by power cords for up to an hour.

Also, our micro scrubbers are foldable for easy storage and can fully rotate for easy manipulation around corners and in small spaces.

Walk-Behind Scrubbers 

IDM offers 2 walk-behind floor scrubber models: the X-Scrub 20 and X-Scrub Max 20. These machines are self-propelled and do not need to be manually maneuvered through a space.

Walk-behind scrubbers are a great option for crews working in large job sites or for smaller teams who need to divide and conquer to complete their work in a timely manner. IDM’s walk-behind scrubbers can run for up to five hours on a single charge, so cleaning teams can essentially “set it and forget it,” while performing other duties.

Ride-On Floor Scrubbers

Our most heavy-duty floor scrubber options are ride-on machines. As the name would suggest, these models are ridden throughout a job site and manually operated by a crew member.

IDM offers several riding floor scrubber models that are all designed to help crews tackle large industrial cleaning projects with ease. As is the case with our other floor cleaning machines, our ride-on floor scrubbers are all wireless and rechargeable and can comfortably fit in elevators, doorways, and tight hallways.

Work Smarter, Not Harder With Help From IDM

Intelligent Design Manufacturing has carefully developed a wide range of cleaning products and machinery that can support the needs of contractors and their crews.

Our automatic floor-scrubbing machines can help teams take their floor-cleaning process to the next level and allow them to focus their attention on other parts of their cleaning routines. These machines are easy to use and require minimal ongoing maintenance, and you can take peace of mind in knowing that your equipment is built to last.
