The Best Walk Behind Floor Scrubber for K-12 Schools

Did you know that the cleanliness of your school can actually have an impact on attendance? In a recent case study, it was discovered that schools in Syracuse, N.Y., experienced an 11.7% increase in attendance after they adopted a new, comprehensive cleaning program.

As K-12 schools continue to feel the aftershocks of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical that educational institutions prioritize their cleaning and maintenance efforts, such as investing in the best walk behind floor scrubber for the job. Doing so will support student performance and inspire confidence among pupils and parents.

Why Invest in a Walk Behind Floor Scrubber?

One of the best ways to level up your cleaning routine is by using top-quality, advanced cleaning equipment. A walk behind floor cleaning machine is designed to tackle every job in K-12 schools and other academic facilities.

Let’s take a closer look at how schools can implement this cleaning solution into their standard cleaning practices to achieve a more effective, top-to-bottom clean.

What Goes Into the Best Walk Behind Floor Scrubber?

A walk behind floor-scrubbing machine is a high-powered piece of equipment that dispenses water from a solution tank to a bristle scrub brush or floor pad.

These brushes and pads rotate at a high rate of speed to scrub soil and other contaminants off heavy duty floor surfaces like LVT, porcelain tile, epoxy, and more before vacuuming the dirty water into the machine’s recovery tanks.

This type of commercial floor scrubber is a great cleaning solution for teams that manage academic facilities due to the variety of flooring surfaces and large areas that may be present within a single campus.

We offer a unit specifically geared toward the needs of cleaning crews in educational settings: the X-Scrub Max 20. Cleaning professionals looking for a higher-capacity cleaning machine should take a closer look at this revolutionary walk behind floor scrubber.

The X-Scrub Max 20 is a battery-powered, walk behind floor scrubber. It is intelligently designed to move freely throughout a space to achieve a more efficient cleaning. These machines are self-propelled and require only minimal human intervention during operation.

A walk behind floor scrubber like the X-Scrub Max 20 allows users to replace a mop and bucket with a more effective, sanitary cleaning solution. Your crew will be able to cut back on cross-contamination and clean floors with less effort in every room.

  • Cordless operation
  • Energy and water efficiency

Where Can I Use a Walk Behind Floor Scrubber?

K-12 schools can pose substantial cleaning challenges due to their size and the relative variability of the cleaning needs presented by each space within the complex. One of the best perks of walk-behind floor scrubbers is their relative versatility when it comes to cleaning multiple types of flooring surfaces.

The X-Scrub Max 20 is designed for use on a wide variety of hard flooring surfaces, including VCT, LVT, polished concrete, epoxy, ceramic tile, porcelain tile, and more. Thanks to its easy operation and effective sanitation protocols, the X-Scrub Max 20 can be used in a number of different spaces within an academic facility:

  • Classrooms
  • Offices
  • Locker rooms
  • Gymnasiums
  • Restrooms
  • Cafeterias

Investing in a single cleaning solution that can be used in each of these spaces can substantially reduce overhead costs and allow cleaning crews to effectively store and maintain cleaning products.
