Manual versus mechanical floor cleaning. Which is better?

When it comes to cleaning commercial and industrial spaces, facilities managers often wonder whether manual cleaning or floor cleaning equipment is more effective. While each situation is unique, automated equipment generally produces better results. Sweeper/scrubber machines are designed to clean large areas quickly and efficiently, resulting in greater productivity, better cleaning, and more consistent results. Additionally, using floor cleaning equipment can be more cost-effective in the long run and improve worker safety. In this article, we will explore the advantages of floor cleaning equipment over manual cleaning and how Morrison can help you select the right equipment for your needs and budget.

Advantages of floor cleaning equipment vs. manual cleaning

Replacing manual floor cleaning in large areas with a sweeper/scrubber machine can offer several benefits.

1. Greater efficiency/increased productivity

Sweeper/scrubbers are designed to clean large areas quickly and efficiently, so less time is spent on cleaning. A worker can clean larger areas in less time, making that worker more productive.

2. Better cleaning

Sweeper/scrubbers are designed to provide a deep, thorough clean with powerful brushes and high-pressure water jets to remove dirt and grime from floors. They leave floors at a level of cleanliness that is difficult to achieve with manual labor.

3. Consistent cleaning

Sweeper/scrubbers provide consistent cleaning, ensuring that every inch of the floor is cleaned thoroughly and evenly. With manual labor, the quality of cleaning varies depending on the skill and effort of the individual cleaner.

4. Lower cost in the long run

While a sweeper/scrubber may require a significant upfront investment, it can save money in the long run by reducing labor costs and increasing efficiency.

5. Worker safety

Manual labor can be physically demanding and poses a risk of injury or strain to workers. Using a sweeper/scrubber can reduce the need for manual labor, minimize the risk of injury, and ensure a safer work environment.
