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.
