A Machine to Clean Warehouse Floor Surfaces with Ease

Warehouse floors get dirty. Whether it’s from constant foot traffic, grime tracked in from the loading docks, or the occasional spill, there’s no doubt that these massive spaces need thorough sweeping and sanitizing regularly.

But which method is the most effective to get the job done? Intelligent Design Manufacturing (IDM) has the answer when you need a machine to clean warehouse floor surfaces. Learn about our line of floor scrubbing machines that are purpose-built and up to the task.


In the past, cleaning warehouse floors could be a challenging and time-consuming task for these three reasons:

1. Vast expanses of concrete in constant use can result in an environment that regular cleaning methods struggle to handle.

2. Manual cleaning methods like mopping often prove inefficient and labor-intensive in typical warehouse scenarios, as they fail to thoroughly remove dirt, stains, and grime.

3. Long drying times and leftover wet patches raise safety concerns as they present the possibility of accidents during and after cleaning.


The old mop and bucket technique is outdated and cannot keep up with today’s largest facilities. Because it relies on manual labor, the method is only useful when the cleaning crew has enough time to actually execute it properly.

But in today’s large warehouses, mopping thousands of square feet can really take its toll on workers. In addition, as the mop is dredged across the floor, it picks up dirt and debris that are then spread out over a larger area.

This undesired mixture of soap, water, and thinned grime can lead to slick spots and non-sanitary conditions. 


A step up from mopping, large floor scrubbers get the job done quicker but are often difficult to maneuver and control. These bulky machines are suitable for cleaning industrial surfaces but require tremendous effort to operate.

In a warehouse, office spaces and stacked inventory can prove difficult to steer around using bulky machines. Plus, the long electrical cords track dirt and can get caught up in the motor. When you’re trying to cover a large area quickly and effectively, you need autonomy and power in one machine.


IDM offers a range of powerful floor cleaning machines that specifically address warehouse cleaning needs. The X-Scrub Max 20 and our newest line of X-Scrub Riders cut down on physical exertion and ramp up efficiency. Plus, they’re all easy to maneuver and have state-of-the-art amenities.


When you’re in need of powerful cleaning in a compact form factor, look no further than the X-Scrub Max 20. This walk-behind floor scrubber is self-propelled and easily cleans a 20-inch path in a single pass.

Its unique design has no problem taking tight corners or traversing long aisles. Need to clean concrete, epoxy, or ceramic tile? Done! With a variety of interchangeable scrubbers and brushes, this machine can do it all.

Worried about running over your cord? Not anymore. The X-Scrub Max 20 features a powerful battery that can run for a startling 4.5 hours on a single charge.

Coupled with a 15-gallon recovery tank, these helpful features ensure your crew doesn’t have to stop and start during a job. Efficiency is the name of the game with our battery powered cleaning equipment.
