It can be hard to pick the right floor scrubber for your business when there are so many to choose from. Before you pick one, there are several factors you should take into consideration. A floor scrubber can be a major expense, so it makes sense to do some research and find one that is right for you. Otherwise, you risk purchasing one that doesn’t meet all of your needs.
Here are some steps to help you make a purchasing decision:
- Decide whether you want a battery operated machine or an electric machine (corded). Corded machines cost less and are good options for those on a tighter budget. In addition, they also require less maintenance. Ones that run on batteries are easier to operate because you don’t have to work around a cord.
- Decide what kind of work you need the machine to do; commercial-grade or industrial-grade. Commercial grade equipment is well suited for retail stores and offices, while industrial grade is better for cleaning warehouses and factories.
- How much can you afford to invest in a floor scrubber? A brand new floor scrubber may actually be less expensive than a used one because a used one may require more upkeep, repairs, and maintenance. Consider the long-term expense of owning a machine rather than just the initial purchase price when thinking about how much you can afford to spend on a floor scrubber.
- Consider all the extras that go along with owning a floor scrubber. Throughout the life of the floor scrubber, you will need to purchase accessories like sponges and brushes to keep it working optimally. Consider how much the accessories cost for each brand and where you can purchase such accessories.
