Warehouse Floor Cleaning: Are You Wasting Money on Tools and Labor?

It's often difficult for business owners who are running a high-volume operation to clean warehouse floors thoroughly. The best method should ideally combine superior cleaning technology with affordable equipment. A comprehensive solution for warehouse floor cleaning will prevent you from wasting your time and money.

 

The Challenge of Cleaning Warehouse Floors

 

During the course of a normal workday, warehouse floors accumulate debris from forklift tires, wooden planks, stocked materials, fuel spills, and various other sources. To make matters more complicated, many warehouses operate outside of business hours to accommodate late-night and early-morning deliveries. This constant activity makes it difficult for teams to clean spaces thoroughly while keeping conditions safe for employees.

Floor safety statistics prove that the system in place is not working. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), over two million slip-and-fall accidents take place every year due to dangerous floor conditions. Claims on these accidents average thousands of dollars.

 

Effective Warehouse Floor Cleaning

 

Autoscrubbers are often used for warehouse floor cleaning because they have the ability to remove 99.4 percent of soils from surfaces. Though autoscrubbers are effective, they are expensive to run and maintain. Another drawback is that these machines require extensive training because they are difficult to operate. This system is also time intensive because it requires many extra steps. Before operation, custodians must run a dust mop across the floor. Afterward, custodians must keep the floor clear so that employees are not in danger of slipping on wet surfaces. Unless you have prolonged periods of inactivity in your warehouse, this method does not offer a safe solution. In addition, the multiple passes custodians must make over the same floor space will waste time and money.

 

It's clear that autoscrubbers are not the ideal tool to use to clean warehouse floors. A cheaper, more effective option is an automated floor cleaning machine like Kaivac's OmniFlex AutoVac. These machines eliminate most of the drawbacks of autoscrubbers. With the OmniFlex AutoVac, custodians can remove a higher level of soil (99.8 percent) while moving much faster?up to 16,000 square feet per hour. These cleaning tools eliminate the need for dust mopping and do not require pricey parts and maintenance. In addition, these machines are much less expensive than their alternative. The initial purchase price can be as low as 10 percent that of an autoscrubber of the same size.
