Keeping floors clean in a manufacturing plant, warehouse, retail store, or other commercial or industrial facility is crucial for appearance, functional and safety reasons. But cleaning floors in these settings is a much more challenging task than performing the process in a home. These areas can be expansive and often require dealing with stubborn materials like oil, grease and chemicals.
While an old-fashioned mop and bucket might work in a small area, most commercial and industrial cleaning jobs demand large, powerful equipment to get the job done:
These machines are available in walk-behind versions that allow manual operation and ride-on models that offer more speed and efficiency when covering large or open areas.
The machine you should choose for cleaning commercial flooring depends on several factors, including your facility's square footage, surface type and the amount of time and human resources you intend to devote to the task. The layout of the area also requires consideration. For example, a walk-behind machine provides extra maneuverability for navigating narrow aisles or obstructions such as poles or stacks of materials.
If you're only concerned about sweeping up dirt and debris and aren't worried about removing stains, a walk-behind sweeper can offer the most practical and budget-friendly solution. On the other hand, if you need to clean large, open areas thoroughly, a ride-on sweeper scrubber can reduce time and labor by up to 50%, as you're using one machine to handle two jobs.
A comprehensive process for cleaning commercial flooring consists of the following steps:
