The History & Future of Floor Cleaning Machines

Electric floor cleaning machines were first introduced in the market
back in the 1900s. They came out to improve the time, laborious effort &
results in the floor scrubbing/cleaning process. At that time, the floor
cleaning machines were heavy with the weight concentrated on the rear
wheels.

As floor cleaning machines advanced, they improved considerably,
allowing for greater productivity, labor savings & convenience. For
example, today we find that the work of a person mopping for eight
hours, can be done using a floor cleaning machine in one or two hours.

As well, current floor machines also include integrated (2-in-1)
sweeper/scrubbers, offering more precise floor cleaning machine results
and integrated use for additional labor savings.

Companies like Tennant, IPC, Nilfisk Advance & Pioneer Eclipse, are
forward thinking floor care machine manufacturers. Their products
involve more technological systems in both the commercial & industrial
floor cleaning machine market, to meet the demand of different
necessities. These include, but are mot limited to:

  • Weight, size and type of the brush – more efficient results with the
  • proper pressure
  • Speed – changed from 225 rpm to 1200 rpm.
  • Powerful vacuum motors
  • Long lasting batteries
  • Upgraded chemicals to work along with the brushes
  • Models – Walk-Behind; Ride-On Machines

With companies like Tennant, Nobles, Nilfisk Advance, Karcher,
Minuteman, & IPC Eagle, when thinking about technology, the sky is the
limit. These manufacturers are now supplying Autonomous scrubber-dryer
machines. These (types of) machines operate without the need for any
human operator. They offer very detailed and precise work with 98% to
99.5% of coverage.

If this concept is considered too futuristic, there is always the option
of having it work with an operator, as a regular floor scrubber. Cool!
