What kind of floor cleaning equipment do I need for my premises?
Floor cleaning is a fundamental part of keeping any business premises tidy and safe. However, with many options for floor cleaning equipment available, it can be hard to decide on which type of machinery to invest in.
To help you select which equipment will be best suited to your needs and business, see our guide below!
What are your business needs?
Most people don’t know where to start when it comes to choosing the most appropriate cleaning equipment. To establish the best equipment for your premises, first consider what your business’ needs are:
- What type of dirt will you need to clean?
- What type of flooring do you need to clean?
- How big an area will you be cleaning?
- Do you have enough power sockets for electrical machines or would a cordless battery or fuel powered machine suit your premises better?
- How robust would you like the machine to be?
5 Different types of floor cleaning equipment
There are many types of flooring equipment to choose from, and each kind is suited to different environments and tasks.
1 – Vacuum cleaners
There are several kinds of commercial vacuum cleaner, designed to meet a variety of requirements. Standard dry vacuum cleaners will handle the daily cleaning needs of most offices and commercial enterprises, easily removing light dirt and dust from smooth or carpeted floors.
For a more robust and versatile vacuum, wet/dry models can handle both wet and dry dirt – these machines are well-suited to environments such as workshops, manufacturing and automotive businesses. At the specialist end of the scale, we can even offer vacuums designed to clear away industrial liquid and flammable or explosive dusts.
2 – Carpet cleaners
Carpet cleaners can offer deep cleaning and dirt extraction for carpeted areas.
Available in a variety of sizes depending on the area you require cleaning, carpet cleaners should be used periodically to keep dirt from being trodden into carpets and permanently damaging them. Such equipment is commonly used in offices, hotels and restaurants.
3 – Single disc scrubbers/polishers
Single disc scrubbers/polishers are an easy to use piece of equipment which both collects dust and polishes flooring surfaces.
The high speed rotating disc can leave smooth, hard floors looking shiny, polished and well-kept.
4 – Scrubber dryers
For effective floor cleaning, floor scrubber dryers are vital to a commercial business. Saving on time and providing superior cleaning performance to traditional cleaning methods – like using a mop and bucket – regular use of a scrubber dryer will easily keep your premises spic and span.
For smaller premises, walk behind machines are the most efficient option, but for cleaning large areas, ride on machines offer optimal output. Thanks to the wide range of equipment available, scrubber dryers are used in countless premises, from retail to healthcare, offices to schools.
5 – Floor sweepers
Floor sweepers will sweep away dust and coarse dirt from flooring – think of them as an efficient, quick and powerful step up from a broom.
Floor sweepers are generally quite heavy duty and can be used indoors or outdoors on surfaces such as stone, concrete and asphalt. This machinery is ideal for warehouses, paths, pavements and more.
