Tips for Buying an Automatic Floor Scrubber

Cleaning a hard-surface floor can be very difficult if you do not have the right equipment to hand. Although you may be able to achieve a certain level of cleanliness with other techniques, using an automatic floor scrubber dryer allows you to achieve a sparkling clean floor without the back-breaking effort.

When choosing an automatic floor scrubber dryer, however, there are a few factors you need to take into account in order to make the best purchase possible.

The Size of the Area Being Cleaned

This is one of the first things that you should consider when buying your automatic floor scrubber dryer. For example, if you need a scrubber dryer for a large, open space, then you may want to consider a ride-on machine. This will save you the effort of pushing a heavy floor scrubber dryer around and, as you are actually sat on the machine, it uses less space than a walk-behind automatic floor scrubber dryer.

However, if you need it for smaller surface areas, a larger machine may be difficult to manoeuvre, so consider what you need the automatic floor scrubber dryer for before making your purchase.

Door Widths

Make sure you are aware of the width of all doorways in your building before you buy an automatic floor scrubber dryer. While most are designed to fit through standard doorways, there may be areas in your building where the door size is slightly smaller than usual. This can hamper your ability to reach all the necessary rooms with your floor scrubber dryer, so ensure you choose the size of your machine accordingly, for both walk-behind and ride-on floor scrubber dryer.

Adequate Charging Areas

When your automatic floor scrubber dryer is not in use, it can be plugged into a standard electricity outlet to be charged. However, if your scrubber dryer uses lead acid batteries, it can emit fumes whilst charging. For this reason, it is advised that any area you use to charge it is well ventilated. Newer floor scrubber dryers use deep cycle batteries, thus ventilation is not a priority with these models.

By making the right choice when buying an automatic floor scrubber, you can purchase a machine that will prove to be excellent value for money. Here at Alpha Power Cleaners, our range of automatic floor scrubber dryers caters for any need and we stock the best industrial floor cleaning systems at excellent prices, both for hire and for purchase.
