Why Your Need Floor Scrubber Dryers in Shopping Centres

One of the issues of running a large complex like a shopping centre is keeping the floor clean, tidy and safe.

While this job is difficult enough in a home or small business, the floors of a shopping mall, which sees thousands of people through its doors every day, will accumulate a lot of dust, dirt and scuffs. This article will look at the reasons why larger buildings benefit from the use of scrubber dryers.

Keeping your staff and customers safe

Owners of places like shopping malls or other public buildings can be at risk of blame should an accident befall someone due to the state of the floor (e.g. an improperly signposted spillage), so it is important that the floor is kept in the best condition at all times.

  • Doing so is best achieved with the use of a floor scrubber dryer, which helps clean a large surface thoroughly and swiftly.

Why do you need a Floor Scrubber Dryer?

A floor scrubber dryer, as the name suggests, cleans the floor with liquid without leaving any wet flooring behind, owing to the ‘dryer’ element of the machine. They are available in both walk-behind and ride-along versions, the former being perfect for scrubbing more compact areas and rooms as it is smaller in size.

These machines are perfect for achieving a high quality clean without taking up extra man-hours or energy, which is what using manual techniques would do. The combination of scrubbing and drying allows two jobs to be completed easily, as opposed to a person undertaking two separate tasks.

Looking after your Floor Scrubber Dryer

If the scrubber dryer is not used correctly, then any mess or marks may not be cleaned, or they can even be spread across a larger area. For example, scrubber dryers can re-deposit the moisture and debris onto the floor. For this reason, it is important that all operatives are fully trained in the use of any scrubber dryer.

Scrubber dryers have barriers that help keep all water and debris enclosed in the cleaner until it is ready to be emptied – if these barriers are raised too early, then this can lead to water and dirt being deposited back onto the floor, creating a slip hazard, more mess and therefore more work for the operator.
