Everyday cleaning can sometimes be a challenge if you have a large and busy commercial establishment with long opening hours and significant footfall. After all, you want to cause as little disruption as possible to normal operation but will be under pressure to ensure that the facility looks in good condition at all times. How can you make it easier for your staff and avoid some of the problems that would otherwise arise through conventional cleaning methods?

The Time-Honoured Approach

Many people in your situation will employ a team of staff who will be sent out to clean the various parts of the property under a tight schedule. They need to pay particular attention to the floor due to those high traffic levels and will be under even more pressure than ever due to the post-pandemic cleaning obsession.

Conventional cleaning methods may be rather archaic and still rely on mops and buckets. When in the hands of a skilled operator, these tools can certainly do the job, but this is time-consuming and can also lead to unwanted risks.

The Drying Conundrum

The mop and bucket approach does rely on evaporative drying, and with the best will in the world, this can take time to achieve. The floor may take even longer to dry in certain weather conditions when humidity levels are high or if ventilation is relatively poor.

Dealing with Risk

When a part of the floor is still damp, you have a slip and fall risk. Certainly, you need to display the appropriate signs in accordance with safety regulations, but you'll want to avoid any injuries from an insurance and reputational point of view. Also, people may yet walk on the surface before it is dry, carrying dirt on their shoes and compromising the entire project.

A Better Approach

With so much at stake and efficiency in the crosshairs, you need to think about deploying a machine instead. In fact, you need to bring in a purpose-made floor scrubber that will do the work in a fraction of the time and eliminate some of those risks.

Machines to the Rescue

Floor scrubbers will typically use a lot less water, which will reduce the drying time dramatically. As they use less water, you can cut down on your utility bill and can potentially reschedule your entire cleaning regimen.

Floor scrubbing equipment will get rid of dirt and grime easily by efficiently applying water and organic chemicals. They are either "ride-on" or push machines and designed to clean a particular space in as short an amount of time as possible.

Outsourcing the Work

The good news is that you do not have to spend any of your valuable capital to buy one as you simply need to bring in a third-party cleaning service instead. They will have invested in the machinery and will have the trained personnel on hand to operate.
