PART TWO Do you clean your cleaning machine?

Cleaning and maintaining your floorcare equipment is crucial to avoid down time with broken machines and ensure you receive outstanding cleaning results with every use. Featured in the first ‘Do you clean your cleaning machine? ‘article we covered carpet extractors, scrubber dryers and vacuums. Part two covers the rest of the Truvox ranges; Rotaries, Cimex, Escalators, Sweepers and Air Movers.

How should you look after these floorcare machines?

ROTARIES

1. Brushes, Pads and Drive boards

When putting on the brush or drive board and pad, make sure you don’t over rotate and that it’s fitted correctly to avoid instability during use. Never leave a brush or drive board and pad fitted when not in use as this can cause distortion and instability of the machine. After every use, check the brush or pad for any signs of wear and damage, and replace if necessary. If using a brush, rinse with clean water.

2. Supply Cord

After every use, check the supply cord and plug for any signs of damage.

3. Brush guard and general machine

To maintain your rotary machine, clean the brush guard and the outside of the machine regularly.

4. Optional solution tank

If you are using an optional solution tank, check for any dirt or debris, and rinse with clean water after every use. Do you have an Orbis eco rotary?
