Keeping your premises clean has always been a priority. But amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s become more crucial than ever before. Business-owners up and down the country, just like you, are looking for ways to adhere to strict cleaning regulations – without breaking the bank in the process.
And here at NWCE, we reckon we can help.
As a leading UK supplier of advanced cleaning equipment, we have a range of floor cleaning machines available to buy and rent. These are designed to tackle a large surface area, in a minimal amount of time, and are a cost-effective way to maintain cleanliness and hygiene.
Here we take a closer look at just a few of their advantages.
5 advantages of floor cleaning machines
Floor cleaning machines are incredibly effective.
Unlike a mop – which will simply spread germs around rather than removing them – a scrubber dryer will break down the grime and collect the dirty water into a tank. This process can kill up to 99% of germs and bacteria and leaves behind a sparkly, exceptionally clean surface every time.
Similarly, unlike a brush – which will simply kick dust up into the air – floor sweepers benefit from powerful vacuum and filtration systems. These systems allow every speck of dust to be collected inside the machine for later disposal, and will ensure the environment is 100% dust and dirt-free.
Cleaning the floor with a mop and bucket is a labour-intensive, time-consuming task.
By contrast, floor cleaning machines require minimal effort and can often do the job in a fraction of the time. Walk-behind and ride-on models are available. And whilst some models are fitted with a power cord, most are battery-powered and don’t need to be plugged in. As such, they’re incredibly easy to use and employees can be trained on how to use the equipment very quickly.
There’s no denying; manual cleaning equipment is significantly cheaper to buy than a floor cleaning machine. But in the long run, investing in a machine can lead to considerable savings.
After all, in the world of business, time is money. And as scrubber dryers and floor sweepers can cover the same surface area in a much shorter time, labour costs associated with cleaning can be kept to a minimum. Over a few months, the machine can (in theory) pay for itself.
4. Minimal disruption
Despite their high levels of performance, floor cleaning machines operate very quietly – which means they can be used at any time of the day, with little disruption to your staff or visitors. Unlike a mop – which leaves behind a wet and slippery surface – they also dry the floor as they go. As such, there’s no risk to health and safety and you can immediately use the floor as normal.
Compared to other methods of floor cleaning, floor cleaning machines use less water and chemicals to do the same job. Therefore, they’re a lot more environmentally-friendly.
Some machines even allow you to adjust the amount of water and chemicals depending on the severity of the task (e.g. using a weaker solution for low-traffic areas and a concentrated solution for high-traffic areas). With many businesses wishing to reduce their carbon footprint, this can make a huge difference and is certainly something to keep in mind when choosing your equipment.
