In the rush to respond to consumers’ increasing dependence on technology, it’s easy for business owners to let other commercial maintenance elements fall by the wayside. However, in a recent survey, 4 out of 5 consumers said they’d rather shop in a clean retail facility than a technologically advanced one.
As businesses continue to invest in new solutions to improve the front-end customer experience, it’s equally important to focus on back-end solutions, such as commercial cleaning products.
Cleaning crews responsible for maintaining large commercial spaces must overcome a variety of challenges to achieve a high-quality, consistent clean. Intelligent Design Manufacturing (IDM) specializes in developing high-capacity cleaning equipment that can help contractors and their crews more effectively clean and maintain industrial spaces.
One of IDM’s most valuable tools for crews looking to tackle large projects is our riding floor scrubber machines. Let’s take a closer look at the X-Scrub Rider line of floor scrubbers.
What is a Riding Floor Scrubber?
A floor scrubber is a type of cleaning equipment that uses an assortment of motorized, rotating scrub brushes to clean hard flooring surfaces. Users can easily dispense water and cleaning solution onto a surface, scrub away the mess, and vacuum up the dirty water.
Taking it a step further, ride-on floor scrubbers function generally the same way as manual floor scrubbers, but they are designed to be ridden rather than pushed throughout a space.
For this reason, rider floor scrubbers are best suited for use in large industrial spaces where a crew member will not have to navigate around unwieldy objects, shelving units, or other obstacles. Riding floor scrubbers can make quick work of large-scale flooring cleaning jobs, and they are designed to deliver a highly effective, sanitary clean.
Get to Know the X-Scrub Riders From IDM
We have developed three riding floor scrubbers that cleaning crews can use to tackle large cleaning jobs more efficiently. Let’s take a closer look at each of the mobile scrubbers available from IDM.
X-Scrub Rider 28
The X-Scrub Rider 28 is a compact ride-on scrubber that offers a broader cleaning range than manual auto scrubbers like the X-Scrub Mini. The X-Scrub Rider 28 is intended for use in medium spaces and can fit through 36” doorways.
Its compact size allows crew members to move quickly and seamlessly throughout the job site – and can even fit in most elevators. It’s capable of cleaning a 28” path and runs on a rechargeable battery, so crew members won’t be limited by power cords.
X-Scrub Rider 32
The X-Scrub Rider 32 is designed for use in larger spaces than the X-Scrub Rider 28 and boasts a cleaning path of 32”. This rider floor scrubber is built for large commercial and industrial cleaning jobs and can easily clean dirt and grime off flooring surfaces in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and even educational complexes.
Its built-in knob functionality allows users to cycle through different cleaning modes without interrupting their process, and its powerful battery is built to last with minimal need for replacement.
X-Scrub Rider 36
The X-Scrub Rider 36 is one of our most popular floor scrubber machines because of its high-power cleaning capacity and ease of use. Crews can clean large spaces more efficiently and with fewer interruptions.
This machine features LED front headlights, so you can achieve a comprehensive clean day or night. Its aluminum and stainless steel components are built for durability and require only light upkeep. This machine is great for use in airports, healthcare facilities, research labs, and more.
Where Can You Use a Riding Floor Scrubber?
When selecting the right riding floor scrubber for your crew, it’s important to carefully consider the size and capacity of each available model. Different machines are designed for use in different spaces.
Generally speaking, ride-on floor scrubbers can be used in all spaces that feature hard flooring surfaces like epoxy, polished concrete, LVT, terrazzo, and more. Thanks to the thoughtful design and low-effort operation, our machines are ideal for cleaning spaces like:
- Retail centers
- Manufacturing plants
- K-12 schools
- College campuses
- Research facilities
Each of these spaces requires a high level of cleanliness and sanitation to support the needs of employees, customers, and visitors alike.
Furthermore, switching from a traditional mop and bucket to an easy-to-use riding machine can help streamline the cleaning process for crew members and safeguard against trip-and-fall accidents and repetitive strain injuries.
