How to choose the best floor scrubber

Choosing the right scrubber is a critical step in planning your cleaning program.  In most cases, the right scrubber is the one that minimizes your labor costs, allowing your staff to efficiently complete their work and free up time for other tasks.  The labor savings from using a larger machine will easily offset the additional capital expense.

Job Size

The first factor you need to consider is the job size.  How much area do you need to scrub daily?  Use the table to the right to find our recommended products for a given amount of floor space.

Space Constraints

The second factor to consider is space constraints.  Will the scrubber fit everywhere it needs to go?  Pay particular attention to doorway sizes, check-out aisle width and elevator size to make sure you get the right machine.  Each scrubber has dimensions on its catalog sheet to help you decide.

Building Layout

The third factor to consider is your building layout.  If your building includes scrubbing hallways or aisles, the machine you choose can impact the number of passes you need to make.  Use the table on the right to understand how cleaning path width can impact the number of passes you need to make to clean a hallway or aisle.
