Thanks to recent developments in in floor cleaning technology, machines are more versatile and efficient while reducing environmental impact. Sustainable cleaning programs vary by facility and industry type, but the two basic components of any approach will save time, energy, and money.

Chemical Solution Usage

The frequent use of highly-concentrated solvents can lead to low door air quality and increased respiratory health risks. Green Seal, EcoLogo™and EPA Design for the Environment provide certified chemicals that reduce the health risks associated with traditional cleaning products.

Equipment Options

Within the Advanced line of scrubbers, you’ll find a variety of tools to decrease waste and increase productivity.

Several floor cleaning units offer a seamless switch between water-only cleaning and varying degrees of detergent to prevent unnecessary product waste. Other units offer multiple pressures and flow rates to effectively clean at various strengths and concentrations – eliminating the time-consuming need for double or triple scrubbing.
