sweep tips

Some of the benefits of sweeping before scrubbing include:

  1. Cleaner Floors

Using a sweeper before scrubbing allows for a better overall clean. Completely removing the dust and debris will not only brighten the floor, but also offer a healthier and cleaner environment for your staff and customers.

  1. Eliminates Streaks

Leaving streaks behind on a floor you just cleaned can be extremely frustrating and unsightly. That is why it is important to sweep before scrubbing as it eliminates the debris which can get stuck under the squeegee blades. Also, large amounts of debris can have damaging results to the machine.
