3 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Commercial Floor Cleaning Equipment

diamond_impregnated_astro_padsThe more you know about commercial floor cleaning equipment, the more prepared you will be to make the best decision when it comes to getting new equipment. Maintaining any commercial space requires careful planning, the right investment, and the most experienced and dedicated personnel.

When it comes to your commercial floor cleaning equipment, the machines you choose can have a direct impact on the cleanliness and appearance of every floor surface. If you have many different facilities with a variety of floor surfaces, you may feel as though you need to get different equipment for each one.

That may be practical as opposed to lugging around the equipment separately, but it may not be necessary. Here are three things you might not have known about your commercial floor cleaning equipment that can certainly help you in the future.

1. Worn out pads and other components can cause damage.

If the pads on your floor scrubber or buffer are worn out, it could be causing damage to the floor surface. It doesn’t matter whether it’s concrete, polished concrete, linoleum tile, ceramic, or any other surface. It’s important to make sure these pads and other components do actually touch the floor surface when cleaning, buffing, or polishing are in good shape.

2. The older a machine gets, the less power it tends to have.

This may not be the case with certain automobiles, especially those that have been worked on and restored, but few people are going to spend much time renovating or fixing old commercial floor cleaning equipment.

If it’s old and your maintenance personnel are spending too much time repairing it, just to get it working for one more service, it’s time to consider replacing it.

3. Centaur Floor Machines are still in use from the 1960s.

That doesn’t mean Centaur Floor Machines aren’t manufacturing new machines anymore, because we are, but many of the machines we made in the 60s and 70s are still working today, which makes them one of the best investments you can make.
