The Best Cleaning System for a Building Service Contractor

Kaivac's OmniFlex AutoVac is the secret weapon building service contractors need. Responsible for maintaining lots of square footage under foot, building service contractors or BSCs don't have time to mess with a bucket and mop. Autoscrubbers are faster, but they are also big, bulky, hard to use and expensive to buy and maintain. Even 17-inch micro-scrubbers aren't as effective and versatile as the OmniFlex AutoVac.


Get great results and grow your business with the machine that can do it all. Get an OmniFlex Autovac. 


Superior Efficacy and Better Productivity

BSCs must deliver clean floors, free of soils and contaminates that can be tracked throughout a facility. ATP meter data collected from the Toxics Use Reduction Institute prove that floors cleaned with a mop and bucket system only remove 45.5% of soils and contaminants. That's not really clean at all. 


Mops also leave floors wet, creating slip and fall hazards. Residue and films left after mopping dry on the floor, leaving a dull, streaky finish and damage the surface overtime. Dirty mop water even splashes up on baseboards and walls, creating more mess and more work.


The OmniFlex AutoVac removes 99% of soils, germs and pathogens. It leaves floors clean, dry and ready to walk on in one pass. And no splashing means no extra effort. 


Autoscrubbers also clean better than mops—not a high bar to reach—but require dust mopping first. The OmniFlex AutoVac lets you skip that step. The battery version cleans 20,200 square feet an hour, comparable to a 32-inch rider autoscrubbers. The corded version cleans 16,200 square feet an hour, beating walk behind autoscrubbers of any size. You can take it up and down stair ways and fit the machine into a small sedan when you're done. 


Easy to Learn, Easy to Maintain

Training workers to use the AutoVac takes mere minutes. Just open the spigot, turn the vacuum motor on and start walking. Still not sure? The KaiTutor on-board training system delivers just-in-time, video-based tutorials right when your workers need it. Performance is instantly improved and language is never a barrier. 


Training on an autoscrubber is complicated, confusing and adds a considerable expense to a BSC's bottom line. 


Maintaining an autoscrubbers is another challenge, requiring weeks of downtime and other added expenses. With few moving parts, the OmniFlex AutoVac is easy for non-technicians to maintain and repair without any tools. And all parts can be shipped overnight via UPS/FedEx. 


Low Cost Means Fast ROI

Mops are cheap, but considering how badly they clean you get what you pay for.  Autoscrubbers, however, are expensive topping at $16,000 for a 32-inch rider. That's a lot of money for a machine that only scrubs the floor. The Kaivac OmniFlex AutoVac costs much less from the start, about 10-25% of an equivalently-sized autoscrubbers. Plus, it does much more like stripping, finishing, picking up salt, cleaning restrooms and extracting grease.


Recoup your initial investment faster, keep maintenance costs down and do more with the OmniFlex AutoVac.  


Keep Current Clients Happy While You Earn New Business

Superior cleaning results leads to satisfied clients. Increased productivity mean BSCs can spend their resources finding new clients. The OmniFlex AutoVac is perfect for a wide range of facility types from education, retail and industrial to healthcare, fitness centers, stadiums and office buildings. Even transportation or hospitality clients can be won using the AutoVac. 


It's perfect from entrance ways, halls, aisles, cafeterias, food courts and lobbies. And because it uses less water and chemicals right out of the box, it's a perfect selling point to clients who want to be more environmentally friendly.
