How to Save On Resources Without Compromising the Quality of Scrubbing
Posted on Monday, December 17, 2018Updated on Monday, December 17, 2018
In today’s economical and environmentally-friendly world, it is important to be conscious of the products and resources that you are using day-to-day. This includes the resources that a commercial floor scrubber uses in business spaces and public facilities.
Businesses within all types of industries can benefit from industrial floor scrubbers and sweepers (especially larger facilities such as hospitals, shopping centres, schools, warehouses, restaurants, leisure centres, libraries, museums, construction sites, factories, car parks, playgrounds, etc.), but how can you ensure that your cleaning endeavours are adhering to lawful health and safety regulations, whilst also preserving the planet’s natural resources?
We look at how you can save on resources without compromising on the quality of scrubbing.
How can a quality floor scrubber help you save on resources?
Like with any heavy machinery, there is a disadvantage with industrial cleaners in that they can use up a lot of energy, meaning that they do not generally classify as “eco-friendly”. However, this is only the case when the cleaners in question are of low quality,
High-quality cleaners, on the other hand, tell a different story; quality cleaners are consciously built so that they use fewer resources. These high performing cleaning machines consume less energy and call for a higher-concentrated cleaning detergent, meaning that less product is wasted. This lowered consumption of resources means that users of quality industrial cleaners can remain economically and environmentally-minded.
High-quality floor cleaners can also help you to preserve your resources more directly. This is because their impressive and modern design means that cleaning is actually easier, more efficient, cost-effective and time-saving. Time and money are valuable resources for any business in any industry, and so saving them will increase your productivity tenfold.
What should you look for when choosing a commercial floor scrubber?
When shopping around for an industrial floor scrubber machine for your business or facility, there are some things you should consider if you want to remain eco-friendly.
Firstly, you should look for machines that have officially certified as being economically and environmentally kind, with reduced consumption of energy and/or requiring less chemical detergent.
Our ASC Eureka E61 Walk-Behind Scrubber, for example, is equipped with the patented ECO system. This innovative and award-winning technology breaks the water economy and detergent saving barrier and guarantees the saving of labour, water and detergent. In turn, this has proven to boost a business’ productivity rate by up to 5 times in comparison to when a standard cleaning machine is used.
Therefore, you should look for systems that minimise the amount of water and detergent used, as this is not only kinder to the environment but reduces labour and thus increases productivity.
How else can you be eco-friendly?
Investing in an eco-friendly floor scrubber is the first step to environmental mindfulness, but there are still things you can do to ensure you’re helping to save the planet even more.
Firstly, you should swap out cleaning products that contain harmful chemicals for cleaning products that are eco-friendly and natural. Opt for products that have low toxicity, are biodegradable and environmentally safe.
It is also recommended that, as the employer of your business or facility, you conduct training programs where employees can learn about the correct disposal of cleaning chemicals and equipment, as this will reduce environmental damage.
When it comes to daily life, there are always ways we can act more environmentally responsible and practice sustainability in everything we do – including when we clean our facilities.
With our ASC cleaners, you can ensure that whilst you are being eco-conscious and preserving the planet’s resources, you are not compromising on quality and are still achieving the most thorough clean.
