Is a Small Commercial Floor Scrubber Powerful Enough?

There’s a common misconception that for something to be powerful, it must also be enormous. Some of the most remarkable technological advancements over the last century have centered around packing lots of power into small devices.

There was a time, for instance, when computers were so large, they took up an entire room. Now, this same technology can fit conveniently in your back pocket. In fact, your smartphone is likely capable of completing far more advanced tasks than the massive computers of yesteryear.

The same principles apply to cleaning equipment. It’s easy to assume that to achieve a high-power clean, you need large, heavy-duty equipment. In reality, however, advancements in technology have made it possible to pack a powerful clean into a compact package.

The X-Scrub Mini from Intelligent Design Manufacturing is the gold standard when it comes to industrial floor cleaning equipment. Let’s take a look at what makes this small commercial floor scrubber the go-to machine for cleaning crews that service commercial and industrial spaces.

Why Choose a Small Commercial Floor Scrubber?

The first question we are often asked is, what is a floor scrubber? Industrial floor scrubbers are designed to tackle cleaning jobs of all shapes and sizes more quickly and with less effort.

How They Work

Floor scrubbing machines dispense water and cleaning solutions onto flooring surfaces before using an arrangement of rotating scrub brushes to remove dirt, grime, and other contaminants.

Once the floor surface has been thoroughly cleaned, the machine’s wet vacuum component will suck up the dirty water into a separate reservoir tank in order to prevent cross-contamination with the dirty water solution.

The Different Types

Floor scrubbers come in a variety of sizes and can be operated in a few different ways. Some floor scrubbers are designed to be ridden on by a crew member and operated almost like a riding lawnmower or tractor.

Other models – known as walk-behind floor scrubbers – are self-propelled, which means they can move freely throughout a space without being steered by a crew member. These auto-scrubbers can be a great option for use in large, open industrial spaces without a lot of tight corners or other nooks and crannies.

Other floor scrubbers, like the X-Scrub Mini, are manually operated and can move freely throughout each space. By comparison, bulkier manual floor scrubbers can be extremely challenging to maneuver, particularly when trying to clean small spaces. For this reason, it’s important to find a manageable floor scrubber for maximum control and cleaning power.

What Sets the X-Scrub Mini Apart?

In addition to being compact and easy to maneuver, the X-Scrub Mini offers a range of functions and features that make it the ideal cleaning solution for commercial and industrial crews.

Here are a few of the reasons why contractors and maintenance professionals should consider adding the X-Scrub Mini to their cleaning routine.

It’s User-Friendly

The X-Scrub Mini is designed first and foremost for ease of use. Its compact design enables users to seamlessly navigate through virtually every area in their commercial space without leaving spots behind untouched.

The X-Scrub Mini includes swivel and folding features, which means it’s easy to store and transport. Its ergonomic swivel design allows you to cover a substantial cleaning path without unnecessary effort or additional equipment.

Plus, the machine is fully battery-operated, which means you’re not limited by unwieldy cords or attachments.

It’s Cost-Efficient

The X-Scrub Mini saves your cleaning crew time, and it also saves your company money. The machine’s thoughtful design maximizes energy efficiency and cuts back on water waste, thus reducing overall operating costs.

Each unit requires minimal maintenance, so you won’t constantly be dipping into your budget to finance upkeep or repairs over time.

You’ll also be able to streamline cleaning processes that might otherwise be completed by multiple team members or using several different products. Switching to the X-Scrub Mini can help cut back on labor costs and allow cleaning crews to use their time more efficiently.

Because the X-Scrub Mini delivers a comprehensive clean that leaves no spots behind, teams can avoid having to revisit the same areas over and over again, helping reduce the need for additional equipment.

It’s Hygienic and Safe

Traditional mopping poses a broad spectrum of health and safety concerns for cleaning professionals and their clients.

String mops and microfiber mops alike often reuse a contaminated water supply to clean flooring surfaces. This process essentially spreads germs and bacteria around rather than removing them, making mopping a poor means of sanitizing industrial facilities.

Furthermore, mopping is recognized as the second leading cause of workplace injuries for cleaning professionals. The traditional mopping process is tedious, time-consuming, and labor-intensive. Therefore, it is likely to result in back injuries. Wet flooring surfaces also pose a substantial safety hazard and can easily result in a high volume of trip and fall incidents.

The X-Scrub Mini addresses these health and safety concerns in a number of different ways. The machine will vacuum up dirty water over the course of a cleaning job so as to avoid re-using contaminated water from space to space. Vacuuming up the dirty water also reduces the risk of a crew member or visitor slipping on a wet flooring surface post-cleaning.
