Cleaning floors can be a substantial challenge. With so many different floor designs in buildings today, they can each require a slightly different cleaning method to simultaneously clean the floor and preserve the integrity of the surface. One of the devices that has made cleaning floors substantially easier is the auto floor scrubber. This is a fast and efficient tool that excels at cleaning harder floor surfaces, such as tiles and wooden floors. Instead of simply moving the dirt and grime using a mop or a broom, the auto floor scrubber will actually lift the filth off of the floor and move it away from the surface permanently. There are some important tips that everyone should keep in mind when using an auto floor scrubber. Proper preparation when using a floor scrubber is key.
First, make sure that the floor scrubber is properly charged. Top of the line floor scrubbers such as the NSS Champ should be fully charged before use because some areas that require cleaning can be very large. The majority of auto floor scrubbers will last between three and four hours. While this might sound like a long amount of time, keep in mind that certain floor scrubbers can clean surfaces faster than others. Take the time to figure out how many square feet can be cleaned during this time. Nobody wants to have a floor scrubber that runs out of charge in the middle of a job. This becomes even more important when people learn that to fully charge a floor scrubber can require up to eight hours.
Next, make sure to select the correct brush or pad on the floor. The pads range in their aggressiveness and abrasiveness. A more aggressive pad will collect more of the dirt and grime but this aggression could also damage certain floor surfaces. On high gloss surfaces, try to use a less aggressive pad to avoid removing the gloss that gives this beautiful surface its shine. This includes floors that are finished with a wax. Aggressive pads are more appropriate for surfaces such as concrete. There are numerous pads available and even more floor surfaces. Match the correct pad to the correct surface.
Finally, remember to follow the instructions. Every auto floor scrubber, such as the NSS Champ, comes with a detailed booklet that governs the operation of the machine. This discusses the cleaning solutions, available pads, and important safety information. While people may not think that auto floor scrubbers move very quickly, they are still powerful machines that use strong chemical solutions. This combination can result in serious injury. The instruction booklets will also provide important information on improving the efficiency of any cleaning job. Take the time to go through the instruction booklet thoroughly to make sure that the operator possesses all of the information necessary to effectively use any auto floor scrubber.
