Scrubbers  (4 Products)
Mechanical floor scrubbers use cylindrical or disk brushes or scrubbers soaked with cleaning solution to wash away dirt, debris, and oils from floors ranging from concrete to hardwood. Most scrubbers have a vacuum system for sucking up the dirty water from the floor into a holding tank, with rubber-bladed squeegees on the rear of the machine to direct the water flow and remove any remainder. Read More

Want to know more about Scrubbers

Floor scrubber cleaning apparatuses

The scrubbers have front decks attached to their undercarriages, housing either cylindrical roller brushes or rotating or orbital disk scrubbers. The clean water tanks operate with fill tanks containing floor cleaners to feed the brushes with the solution, and the wet brushes revolve or rotate against the flooring surface to scrub it. The dirty water then flows from suction intake tubes into collection tanks, and rear or center squeegees corral the water and help dry up the remaining liquid. Most industrial floor scrubbers have easily removable water tanks, or they come with undercarriage discharge valves to release the dirty water. The operators may use mops with mop buckets to remove any streaking or residual moisture.

Controlling the three types of industrial floor scrubbers

Hand-held, walk-behind, and riding scrubbers have slightly different control knobs or panels for operating the machines, managing on-off power, brush rotation speed, the flow of cleaning solution, and engagement of the vacuum. Hand-held versions have twin grips with knob controls on either side of the handle, for user convenience. Walk-behinds have twin grips, a single steering handle with a thumb-control panel on the grip, or a steering wheel with a full control panel on the machine face. Riding ones also have steering wheels and face-mounted control panels. These various arrangements give operators full control and maneuverability on flooring of different dimensions. Users can keep the control knobs and panels free of skin residue by periodically wiping them down with cleaning wipes.

Other uses for floor cleaning machines

Some surfaces, like finished wood, tile, or laminate flooring, may require a final polishing to get rid of streaks left behind by the wash. All floor scrubbers accept polishing pads that fit the brush mounting assemblies for this final step. Many operators also prep the surfaces for polishing by giving the floors one final sweep with brooms and dustpans before this stage. The machines also accept buffing pads, to give floors one last pass to bring out their luster.

Other features

Many industrial floor scrubbers come with other conveniences to expedite and facilitate their operation:

  • Oversize wheels for easy mobility over any flooring
  • Brush-deck bumpers to prevent marring walls and baseboards
  • Wide cleaning paths from 15 to 32 inches

Check out the various selections at Quill to see which of the hand-held, walk-behind, or riding scrubbers are right for flooring in offices or facilities.
