Electric Floor Scrubbers
Electric floor scrubbers are designed to pick up dirt and debris in hard to reach areas, and polish and buff floors to create a smooth and shiny appearance. This type of cleaning equipment offers several benefits for both commercial and residential use. Selecting the right machines ensures you can take care of cleaning projects in a fraction of the time it normally takes to mop and polish the area by hand.
Benefits of electric floor scrubbers
Electric floor scrubbers offer several advantages when cleaning large areas that need continuous polishing, scrubbing, and buffing. Electric floor scrubbers are powered by high-speed motors and buffer pads that oscillate at different speeds and levels to clean the floor.
Since these machines are powered by electricity, the machines run smoothly and efficiently across different types of flooring and perform at a low vibration and noise level.
Electric floor scrubbers can be equipped with different types of buffing pads that can be changed for each surface. From kitchen tiles to wooden gymnasium floors, electric floor scrubbers can quickly clean and buff an area.
Choosing the right type of electric floor scrubber
There are several types of electric floor scrubbers to choose from, and your selection will be based on the size of the area you wish to clean, available storage space, and who will be using the equipment. Most electric floor scrubbers are designed for use without any special training required. From the walk-behind models to the rider style, using an electric floor scrubber is a relatively easy project.
Options in electric floor scrubbers include:
- Compact, walk-behind floor scrubbers - An electric automatic floor scrubber designed for both wet and dry areas, and one that can handle hard-to-reach spaces such as tile bathrooms, closets, and areas around a kitchen. Expect to pay between $1,500 and $7,800 depending on the model you select, with a number of popular models falling in the $2,700 range. Replacement brushes will cost $100 to $400 each.
- Full-size, walk-behind scrubbers - Possibly one of the most efficient types of floor scrubbers, these machines can be used to scrub in hard-to-reach places and are also very easy to operate. Expect to pay between $2,500 and $10,500 depending on the model you select, with a large number of popular models in the $3,400 range.
- Commercial floor scrubbers - Made with industrial-strength materials that can help strip away dirt and debris, these types of scrubbers also buff the floors smooth. These are ideal for larger floors such as gymnasiums, fitness centers, indoor arenas, large kitchens, or open spaces such as hotel lobbies and airport floors. Expect to pay between $4,700 and $16,700 depending on the model and type you select (walk-behind vs. riding). It's worth noting that, in many cases, riding models are nearly double the cost of a walk-behind machine.
