Factory Floor Cleaning

Thanks to gravity the area that receives the greatest amount of dirt is the factory floor, and there is not a lot that can be done to prevent it. The workplace is a much cleaner place than it used to be as anyone who has visited say a modern car plant would agree with, but even with the latest production methods dirt still accumulates. The answer to the problem is regular cleaning and to facilitate this tiresome task there are a range of machines to help.

Floor Sweepers for Factory Floors

To clean a factory floor is an onerous task and cannot be done well without the aid of a machine. To clean up surface debris, mechanical floor sweepers have been developed to meet the challenge. These machines operate by using a system of rotating brushes which literally sweep the dirt back into a holding vessel for later disposal. The range of these machines is such that there is one for every application. They can be pedestrian operated and smaller for dealing with narrow or difficult to access areas, or larger ride on varieties for dealing with larger spaces. Sweepers are designed not only for their efficiency but are also relatively easy to operate to take reduce operator fatigue.

Floor Scrubber Driers

Whilst sweeping alone may be sufficient for the clean up, it may be that a deeper clean will be required. To that end the scrubber drier has been developed which washes, scrubs and dries the floor. It operates in a similar fashion to the sweeper with a system of rotating brushes; however, in this case water and detergent are introduced to be worked into the floor surface. The resultant residues is then removed by an arrangement of squeegees and, sometimes vacuum, into a holding tank. One advantage of the scrubber drier is that it reduces the time taken for cleaning and any consequent downtime. Like sweepers they can be pedestrian or ride on and come in a variety of sizes dependent upon requirements.
