Scrubber Dryers: Does Size Matter?


Reports have shown that a growing number of scrubber dryer models have a smaller, more compact design than their larger predecessors. Industry experts confirm that this trend is due to a shift in favour for the more compact designs, but why exactly is this?

Here at Alpha Power Cleaners, we’ve looked at why size could matter when it comes to scrubber dryers.


Weighs Less

One of the big benefits of smaller models is that by logic they weigh less, meaning less hassle transporting them from room to room. This is extremely useful for commercial cleaners who have large spaces to clean in a limited amount of time, and anyone who may struggle transporting one of the larger, clunkier models.


Reduced consumption

Smaller models reduce the amount of water and energy consumed, which in turn contributes to big cost reductions for the overall running of the machine. Smaller models not only save money, but are also a more economical choice in saving on the amount of water used each time.


Less likely to damage delicate floors

The reduced weight means smaller models can be handled easier over more delicate floors that could be prone to damage or scratching from heavy machinery. This is an important consideration for businesses where an attractive aesthetic is important.


Better at cleaning nooks and crannies

The small scrubber dryer models can be easily maneuvered into all the nooks and crannies of the building, which is ideal for premises with awkward rooms and corners to navigate. A larger model in this type of building would probably mean many areas being neglected, whereas smaller models ensure every surface area is cleaned efficiently.


Lower cost

Generally, smaller models will have a lower initial cost, although this does largely depend on the quality of the model itself. Price is often a number one concern for consumers, so the lower cost on smaller models acts as a big advantage to this design.


Better storage

An obvious advantage of smaller scrubber dryers is that they are much easier to store. Smaller models can be tucked away in a storage cupboard and not take up much space, whereas larger models may require their own designate cupboard just for that machine!


How much does size matter?

Despite the obvious advantages of a smaller scrubber dryer, many industry experts still argue that price is the priority for buyers, followed by quality of the brand. Here at Alpha Power Cleaners, we offer only the highest quality scrubber dryers at cost-effective prices.
