When to Replace Floor Scrubber Parts


An industrial floor cleaning machine can give you cleaner, more hygienic floors while saving time and labor costs. To ensure you're getting clean floors, your auto scrubber needs its wearable parts replaced regularly.

Sweepers: The Economical Choice to Reduce Stormwater Pollution

Industrial sweepers are an effective and relatively inexpensive way for parking lot owners, property owners and local municipalities to manage stormwater runoff and pollution. Wherever Clean Water Act (CWA) compliance is required, an industrial sweeper can effectively remove pollutants and play a key role in a stormwater pollution prevention plan (SWPPP).

When to Replace Floor Sweeper Parts


Commercial floor sweepers do a great job keeping parking lots, warehouses and other operations looking their best. To get the most out of your investment, it's important to regularly replace the wearable parts such as the brushes, broom and the main dust filter. Failing to maintain the equipment can result in inefficient cleaning and damage to your machine.

Floor Scrubber Buying Checklist

Would you like your floors to be 60-70% clean, or 95% clean? Most companies would prefer 95% - and that’s what you get with an industrial floor scrubber. When cleaning with a mop and bucket, the more you clean, the dirtier the water gets. Industrial floor cleaning equipment uses 100% clean water the entire time, leaving floors cleaner and more hygienic.

Though the upfront cost is higher, most commercial floor cleaning equipment pays for itself over time. For example: an employee with a mop and bucket can clean 4,000-5,000 square feet in one hour. A small automatic floor scrubber can clean almost 13,000 square feet in the same amount of time. Larger machines can clean more than 100,000 square feet per hour - a hard-working human would need 20 hours to do the same job.

If you’re ready to get cleaner floors in less time, here’s a checklist to help with buy the right floor scrubber and avoid expensive mistakes.

Walk-Behind vs. Ride-On Floor Cleaning Equipment

Commercial floor sweepers and scrubbers are a cost-effective way to eliminate dirt, dust, grime and germs. Studies have shown that labor costs represent about 90% of the total cost to maintain floors, and an industrial cleaning machine allows operators to clean more in less time.

Once you’ve made the decision to buy a floor sweeper or scrubber, the next question is: walk-behind or ride-on? In today’s post, we’ll review the pros and cons of each option to help you choose the best sweeper or scrubber for your operation.

Industrial Floor Sweepers for Commercial Application and OSHA Compliance

An industrial sweeper helps your business save money,  improve customer satisfaction and stay within OSHA compliance. Sweepers come in a variety of sizes from quiet walk-behinds to large ride-on machines with a massive appetite for dust.

At TMHNC we carry sweepers for a variety of applications including:
  • Warehouse and distribution centers
  • Manufacturing
  • Parking lots and parking garages
  • Municipalities
  • Corporate and college campuses
  • Foundries and lumber yards
  • Cleaning contractors
  • Event and exhibition centers
In this article we’ll identify some of the most popular models for each application, and the best machines to aid with compliance of OSHA’s new silica dust standards.

Comparing the Cost to Rent, Lease or Buy a Floor Sweeper or Scrubber

A clean floor is the sign of a professional operation. Though more expensive than a mop or broom, floor scrubbers and sweepers give your business that professional look with less time and elbow grease. Not to mention, they leave your floors much cleaner!

In this article we’ll look at different types of floor sweepers and scrubbers and the best application for different types of units. We'll also compare the cost to rent, lease or buy a floor sweeper / scrubber.

How to Choose the Right Floor Scrubber Machine

Drop the Mop! Save Time and Get Cleaner Floors With a Power Scrubber. Sticky sodas and greasy drips create a safety hazard for employees and make a poor impression with customers. Things run better in a clean environment, but it can be hard to maintain.

Even low-traffic hallways accumulate a surprising amount of grime that can’t be removed with a mop; break rooms and lobbies are often twice as bad. Maintaining floors with a mop and elbow grease is time-consuming and just can’t get floors as clean as a floor scrubber machine.
