Unless you run an airport, warehouse or other large facility, you may think that you don’t need an industrial floor scrubber. And whilst the name might suggest that these kinds of floor cleaners are only useful for larger facilities, they can actually be beneficial for all kinds of establishments and venues. 

Don’t believe us? Let’s take a look at some of the ways an industrial floor scrubber could benefit your business.

It saves time

An industrial floor scrubber is designed to achieve a high standard of cleanliness in a fraction of the time it would otherwise take. You may have been getting by with a mop and bucket until now, but having an industrial scrubber could end up saving you so much time. Even if we estimate conservatively that it saves you 15 minutes every day, that amounts to 91 hours per year. This is a huge amount of time that could be spent doing more productive things that could benefit your business like contacting new clients, organising your accounts, conducting customer feedback surveys or even just catching up on e-mails.

It saves money

Again a mop and bucket may seem cheaper and seem more accessible but investing money in an industrial scrubber could end up saving you a lot more money than you realise. We’ve already established that it saves you endless hours, and that in turn will save you money. The time saved on wiping the floor over and over again with a mop could be spent on making more money for the business. 

Or, if you pay someone to do your cleaning for you, you can get the same level of cleanliness out of them but pay for less of their time. So if you pay someone $20 to clean your facility and you save 91 hours over the course of the year… that’s a whopping $1,820 you could be saving on cleaning your floors alone. And that’s just with a conservative estimate of 15 minutes of time saved each day. Imagine the total time and money you could save on larger floors!

Higher cleaning standards

Why do the bare minimum when you can achieve higher standards of cleanliness for less money and in less time? An industrial floor scrubber is designed to do just that. You don’t have to invest in a giant truck to achieve this kind of cleanliness either. A walk-behind scrubber is designed for a tougher and superior cleaning performance on a surface of any size. 

It protects your business

Though you may overlook it, your floor has the potential to be one of your biggest hazards. From objects and debris that cause trips and falls to bacteria and germs coming in on people’s feet, your floor can be an accident waiting to happen. Investing in a proper industrial scrubber can help ensure that your floor is clear, clean and safe. This will then protect your business from costly legal battles over slips and falls or having to cope with staff taking time off due to illnesses caused by dust and bacteria found on the floor. 

It protects your reputation

When it comes to customers and clients, the appearance of your facilities will go a long way. Whether you run a warehouse, a restaurant, a shopping mall or an office, if your space is dirty or messy, it will put people off. Having clean and hygienic floors is one of the very first things you should ensure when it comes to the maintenance of your facility. In fact, when you think about it, it’s one of the only aspects of your building that every single visitor will use. So making sure your floor is clean and safe is key to keeping a good reputation with clients, customers and staff. 


Investing in an industrial floor scrubber can save you hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars. But not only is it cheaper and more cost effective to use one, it actually does a better job than a manual cleaner too! And on top of all of that, it can actually help protect your business’ reputation as well help you avoid costly legal battles. 

So what are you waiting for? Getting an industrial floor scrubber really is a no-brainer!
