Planning on setting up your own cleaning business? Or perhaps you’d like to expand your current one?
When setting up a cleaning business there are a lot of cleaning supplies you have to procure: brushes, brooms, rags, mops, polishes, cleaners and so on. To establish a commercial cleaning business however, requires a bit more than your standard cleaning supplies. For starters, you’ll need a bigger team of cleaners and you’ll need to train them on how to clean larger and more complex spaces. Secondly, you’ll need professional cleaning machines to help you complete commercial cleaning jobs better and faster.
There are many different types of cleaning machines available nowadays, but only a few are essential for starting a commercial cleaning business:
No commercial cleaner would ever be without a good, commercial-strength vacuum cleaner. Unlike typical household vacuum cleaners, these cleaners have greater capacity, mobility and power, and are able to function for longer periods of time. Vacuum cleaners are crucial particularly when cleaning office spaces, as these often require cleaning vast, carpeted floors.
Carpet extractors are another type of carpet cleaning machine that does more that just suck dirt out. When clients want a deeper clean for their carpets, this is the machine for the job. Carpet extractors scrub water and cleaning solution into a carpet, and afterwards remove these along with any dirt, stains and debris. This is good for heavily stained carpets, and will leave carpets cleaner and germ-free.
Power / Pressure Washer
If carpets have extractors, hard floors have power washers. Using a high-pressure jet of water the power washer is able to remove dirt, mould, grime and even stains on hard surfaces like concrete and stone flooring. It’s also good for cleaning hard to reach areas because of its trusty wand. Power washers however must be used with care, as the strong jet can be damaging to some surfaces and can even cause injury.
Scrubbers are machines that have rotating brushes which are able to remove dirt and debris from hard floors; can be used on rubber floors and mats; and can clean carpets in a number of different ways. They’re the perfect option for cleaning stained, tiled floors as they are able to clean both tile and grout without causing any damage.
