How to Clean Greasy Factory Floors
Do you have a large factory or workshop and are wondering how to clean greasy floors? If the answer is yes then Duplex Cleaning Machines may have a solution or two for you. These include the Salla floor scrubber and the JetVac steam vacuum.
The Salla 500 Max by Duplex Cleaning Machines is the ideal affordable factory floor cleaning machine. Exclusive in Australia to the Duplex Cleaning Machines distribution network; the Salla 500 Max factory floor cleaner has walk behind battery powered operation and is designed to withstand harsh operating environments.
With a unique multi-purpose design the Salla 500 Max factory floor cleaner can be transformed to function as a floor scrubber/dryer, dry sweeper or portable wet/dry vacuum cleaner in seconds. Therefore you don’t get one machine; you get three machines in one. So if your factory or warehouse floors require scrubbing, sweeping and vacuuming the Salla 500 Max factory floor cleaner is the solution.
No matter what the floor surface (safety floor, sealed concrete, checker plate etc) the Salla 350/500 is a fast, effective and efficient solution to clean them all. The scrubbing effectiveness of the Salla factory floor cleaner comes from the dual contra-rotating cylindrical brushes that penetrate deep into profiled factory floor surfaces and actively lift the dirt. Dirt is then simultaneously extracted dry straight off the brushes or in a dirt filled solution by a 730mm rear vacuum squeegee.
For greasy floors pre-spray the floor with degreaser or use a citrus based detergent that is effective on grease. This helps reduce cleaning time if using plain water. The Salla 350/500 also has optional heavier duty brushes with harder bristles for factory floors that require greater cleaning or degreasing.
JetVac Maxi / Major - SteamBox Vac
The JetVac / Steambox range of industrial steam vacuums are another great solution in removing grease from floors. Unlike the Salla that uses agitation to break down grease; the JetVac steam vacuums uses high temperature dry steam to emulsify grease into a liquid form and a vacuum to remove the simulatenously remove the grime. JetVac machines may take a little longer and require more effort than a Salla 350/500 but less water and no detergents are required.
In addition to cleaning grease and oil from floors the JetVac can be used for many other cleaning applications like detail cleaning of equipment. For this reason the JetVac Maxi/Major steam vacuums are popular for use in food and beverage production environments.
