Clean Sweep & Scrub to Perfection
It’s recommended to sweep your floors before using a Scrubber Dryer. This means you will have cleaner floors, cause less damage to the floor surface and get more from your Scrubber consumables.

Sweep before Scrubbing because…

  • Loose dust and grit can be spread over areas you have just cleaned.
  • Dust, hair and other debris can clog up scrubber pads making them less effective.
  • Abrasive materials left on the floor wear down consumable brushes faster.
  • When floors are swept first the scrubber vacuum system stays at full suction for longer so you get dryer floors with less service downtime.
  • Sand, Grit and larger object like screws, bolts and swarf will scratch and damage floors during scrubbing.
  • Less debris to pick up means less scrubber collection tank emptying.
  • This dry waste from the sweeper is easier to dispose of than large amounts of wet slurry.
