How a floor scrubber dryer works

Regardless of the model chosen, each professional floor scrubber dryer guarantees an excellent level of intervention, cleaning, sanitising and drying of every surface, keeping it safe and dry after just one wipe. The four main components are essential to achieving this result:

  • The rotating brushes, positioned at the front of the floor washer. Generally, it is possible to find a single brush on the “walk behind” models and two or three brushes on the “ride on” models;

  • The tank dedicated to the solution formed by water and detergent, which is used for cleaning;

  • The tank dedicated to the collection of dirty water;

  • The motor, essential for operation and, above all, to ensure the suction of water after washing.

Thanks to its structure, the professional floor scrubber dryer acts simultaneously on three levels, carrying out:

  1. Floor cleaning thanks to the presence of rotating brushes, which perform an abrasivefunction. When cleaning stains, the brush also acts on the most encrusted dirt, removing it from the surface without damaging it;

  2. Washing and sanitising, thanks to the tank that releases a solution composed of water and detergent, thoroughly cleaning the surface. The presence of two tanks guarantees that during the washing phase clean water is always used, unlike traditional tools such as cloth and bucket;

  3. Drying, with the support of the squeegee that collects dirty water inside a dedicated tank.

In this way, the professional floor washer-dryer automates the cleaning process, carrying out three steps in one, speeding up the intervention and ensuring an excellent level of sanitation, essential to offer workers and customers a safe and pleasant environment.

Benefits for floor care, for the environment and for the company

Relying on a professional cleaning tool such as the floor scrubber dryer gives you great advantages, optimising resources, protecting the environment, reducing intervention times and reducing operator fatigue.

Among the main reasons to choose to buy a floor scrubber dryer for your office or warehouse, we find:

  • excellent level of safety for workers and customers. Instant drying avoids wet and slippery areas, allowing recurrent cleaning without having to deny access to spaces, premises, corridors or parts of a store. This ensures ample freedom of movement even immediately after cleaning, without any danger for the passing people. This aspect is essential, especially in those places that are subject to a constant passage of people, such as supermarkets, shopping centres, SPAs, canteens and refreshment areas;

  • Excellent level of hygiene, even compared to traditional tools such as bucket and rag. The action of the floor scrubber dryer effectively removes germs and bacteria, preventing their proliferation even with a single wipe;

  • Environmental protection, ensuring excellent water and detergent savings. According to some studies, in fact, with traditional tools, 0.5l of liquid is needed every 10sqm. On the contrary, only 0.05l with the same surface area is sufficient withthe floor scrubber dryer;

  • Speed of use, thanks to the 3-in-1 operation, which allows you to clean, wash and dry in a single gesture. In this way, in addition to constant and periodic cleaning, it is possible to guarantee intervention in the event of exceptional circumstances. An example is the refreshment areas, where drinks or food can spill, or shopping centres or supermarkets, where, especially on rainy days, there may be a need to intervene over and over again to ensure a safe and dry floor for the public.

Which professional floor washer-dryer to choose?
