In the world of commercial floor cleaning machines, the mantra “right chemical for the right job” couldn’t be more accurate. When it comes to maintaining hygiene in high-traffic areas like sports halls, warehouses, or retail spaces, selecting the appropriate detergent for your commercial floor cleaning machine is paramount. Not only can it ensure an effect result it can also increase the lifespan of your machine. Below we delve into some specifics about what to consider when deciding on the right detergent, especially for smaller online machines and larger niche applications.

Low Foam, Low Corrosive Formulas: For commercial floor cleaning machines, especially those used in sports halls or warehouses, opting for low foam and low corrosive detergents is essential. You cannot just use the regular off the shelf floor cleaning solutions. Brands like us at B&G understand this requirement and offer a range of specialised chemicals designed to tackle unique challenges. A crucial consideration for larger machines is preventing foam overflow from the recovery tank.

The recovery tank full cut-out switch is not triggered by the low density of foam. This can lead to the foam overflowing out of the recovery tank and into sensitive components which can lead to costly repairs.

Low foaming detergents clean very efficiently in exactly the same way – they are just formulated to contain less foaming agents and so be compatible with modern cleaning machines.

Specialised Solutions for Every Need: Cleaning solutions are formulated for different needs. It is worth taking a moment to consider what exactly you are cleaning. Whether you’re dealing with tough residues in a warehouse setting or require a gentle touch for retail spaces. Do you have black mars from the soles of shoes to remove or greasy deposits industrial processes. B&G’s lineup includes chemicals like tyre and abrasion removers, heavy-duty solutions, and more. This approach ensures that every cleaning task is met with the precise chemical solution it demands.

Smaller Online Machines for Small Users: For smaller machines, like the Karcher BR 30/4 C, and Nilfisk SC100 the considerations remain just as crucial. These machines, often utilised by smaller businesses, benefit from detergents that strike the right balance between potency and compatibility. B&G’s offerings cater to the diverse needs of smaller applications, providing effective cleaning without compromising the integrity of the machine.

Larger Machines and Niche Applications: It is important to consult experts for the larger machines. We recognise that larger machines and niche applications may have unique requirements, B&G encourages users to engage every step of the way to make the right decision. Discussing the specifics of your application ensures that you receive tailored solutions, preventing potential issues and optimising the performance of your commercial floor cleaning machine.

Manufacturer’s Instructions: Finally, always refer to the cleaning machine manufacturer’s guidelines for recommended detergents. Using unauthorised or incompatible products may void warranties and cause damage.
