It’s officially cold and flu season, so it’s time to level up your school’s cleaning routine.
K-12 schools, colleges, and universities are held to increasingly high standards of hygiene, safety, and cleanliness. Parents, students, and staff all count on their local schools to properly clean and sanitize the spaces they visit every day. Failing to follow proper cleaning protocols can have unintended consequences for community members of all ages.
Traditional cleaning methods often fall short of achieving the kind of comprehensive clean required to keep learning environments healthy and safe for all. For this reason, cleaning crews and school administrators should consider investing in advanced cleaning solutions like auto floor scrubber mini machines offered by Intelligent Design Manufacturing (IDM).
IDM specializes in manufacturing floor scrubbing machines that make high-traffic areas easier and safer to clean and sanitize. Let’s discuss some of the ways auto floor scrubbers can streamline the cleaning process for your crew.
WHY SWITCH TO AN AUTO FLOOR SCRUBBER MINI MACHINE?
Manual floor cleaning solutions might be sufficient for small cleaning jobs or periodic touch-ups, but large-scale cleaning projects like maintaining academic facilities can require a more intensive approach. Even dual-bucket mopping systems pose a significant risk of cross-contamination that can contribute to the spread of germs.
Additionally, mopping is a labor-intensive part of the cleaning process. In fact, mopping is the second-leading cause of cleaning-related injuries. When a crew member uses a traditional mop and bucket, they are essentially repeatedly pushing around up to 10 lbs of weight. This action can contribute to an increased likelihood of repetitive stress injuries, not to mention the potential for slip and fall accidents on wet surfaces.
An auto scrubber, on the other hand, requires minimal effort on the part of a crew member. Floor scrubbers utilize a combination of rotating scrub brush heads to thoroughly clean a flooring surface – no dirty mop is required.
Crew members can easily use an auto scrubber to disperse cleaning solution onto the flooring surface, scrub away contaminants, and vacuum the dirty water off the floor. IDM’s floor scrubbers are easy to operate, transport, and store and can be used to achieve a more efficient, reliable clean.
MEET THE X-SCRUB MINI
IDM’s most ergonomic auto floor scrubber is the X-Scrub Mini, a high-capacity machine designed with efficiency in mind. This machine can be used to complete cleaning jobs on a variety of different surfaces.
The X-Scrub Mini is uniquely suited for cleaning small spaces and getting into tight spots. The X-Scrub Mini is cordless and can run for 90 minutes on a single charge. Because crew members aren’t limited by unwieldy power cords or battery packs, they can more effectively maneuver throughout a space without leaving spots behind.
Users can choose between 3 different styles of brush heads depending on the specific needs of their space:
- Soft brushes for a gentle clean on finished floors.
- Aggressive brushes for hard cleaning jobs and restoration projects.
- Daily brushes for a reliable clean, even on high-traffic flooring surfaces.
These interchangeable brush heads offer users a more customized clean and can help to deliver a more comprehensive, user-friendly cleaning experience on every surface.
WHERE CAN I USE AN AUTO FLOOR SCRUBBER?
Auto floor scrubbers can be used to clean a wide variety of flooring surfaces that are commonly found in educational complexes.
Our line of floor scrubber machines are equipped to deliver a next-level clean on multiple floor surfaces like ceramic tile, LVT, epoxy, and polished concrete. This makes our floor scrubbing machines the perfect choice for cleaning spaces, including:
- Locker rooms
- Eating areas
- Multipurpose rooms
With traditional methods, it might be necessary to stock up on multiple types of equipment to tackle cleaning jobs in each of these spaces. With IDM’s floor scrubbers, however, crews can cut back on the equipment required in each space by easily transporting their scrubber from one space to the next.
The ergonomic design of the X-Scrub Mini also makes it less likely for crew members to injure themselves while carrying and transporting the machine throughout school buildings.
CHOOSE THE AUTO SCRUBBER THAT FITS YOUR CLEANING NEEDS
When investing in advanced cleaning equipment, it is important to carefully consider the needs and requirements of your space and team. That’s why it’s important to choose an auto floor scrubber mini machine that has been tried and tested on common flooring surfaces in educational settings.
