Objective Cost Saving Suggestions for Dealer Installers, that speeds and improves initial floor preparation process. Aid installers with post job clean up Set realistic expectation for proper floor care & maintenance. Providing superior cleaning solution ideas that: – Protect & extend the life of the floor. –Lowers maintenance costs –Improve health and safety.
High Performance Sports Surfaces Require High Housekeeping Standards Can only be attained by consistent & frequent cleaning !Can only be attained by consistent & frequent cleaning ! –Removing solid debris & fine particulate Vacuum SweepingVacuum Sweeping –Removing sticky soilage & spills ScrubbingScrubbing
Consistent Coverage on large floor areas can be labor intensive & costly Hand Sweeping 3,000 sf/h Walk Behind Sweeper20,000 sf/h Rider Sweeper 100,000 sf/h
Sweeping Small to Large Broom Vacuum & dust filter system Application size dictates machine size Under 50,000 sf walk Over 50K =‘s ride Outdoor applications get more debris
Scrubbing 17” 10 gal 60” 250 gal machines Application size (SqFt) dictates machine size Smooth =‘s Disc Brush Textured =‘s Cyl Brush Under 50,000 SF = Walk Over 50,000 SF = Ride Choose scrubbing equipment with latest chemical management systems Some require no chemicals reducing cost, labor, waste water disposal, & residue left behind
Scrubbing Brushes & Solution Soft Nylon Brushes or 3M blue or white scrubbing pad Conventional Scrubber 3 oz. /Gal Neutral Cleaner Foam Scrubbing Neutral Foam Electronically Converted Water no chemicals 50/50 Neutral Cleaner Spray bottle for hot spots pre treat.
CYLINDRICAL BRUSH SYSTEM Should be used for heavily textured surfaces I.e. running tracks, grouted tile surfaces Cylindrical brushes flex and reach into irregular surfaces for better cleaning of rough surfaces Also picks up light solid debris as it scrubs. DISC BRUSH OR PAD Designed for cleaning smoother or slightly textured surfaces.
Cleaning Chemicals Clean water and Neutral PH detergent pre 3 oz per gallon Rinse floor with clear water after scrubbing Or Use machine with Foam or detergent management system. Rinse floor with clear water after scrubbing Or Use machine with Electrically Converted water system and eliminate the need for any chemical
Clean Water Tank Water Pump Filter Oxygenizing Chamber Water Cell Scrub Head Oxygenated Micro-Bubbles Activated Nano-Bubbles Creating a Cleaning Agent from Water
PRODUCTIVITY Reduce scrubber training and time associated with storage, handling and mixing of chemicals Eliminate eye and protective clothing need when using chemical Reduce slip/fall accidents Eliminate the purchase & storage of general purpose cleaners
Productivity 50% less labor (eliminate rinse step) 50% less water & waste water Kill % of Bacteria & Germs both on the floor and in the machine Leaves floor clean & safe without detergent residue Zero Chemical Cost
Cleans better than conventional technologies Traditional cleaning relies on soap (detergent) –Added cost –Requires monitoring for safe use Leaves a residue –Floors never fully ‘rinsed’ Residue acts as a magnet Floors are never truly clean Detergent residue is affected by water (humidity, spills) –Reactivated residue can change slip resistance coefficient of floor
Building Owner Lease (1 to 5 year) Fair market value, $1 buy out, Municipal ---All types available Lease Purchase Long Term Rent (6 mo’s to 5 years) Factory Reconditioned Units Get the right tool for the job!
Contractor Installer Short Term Rental of Specialized Equipment Equipment Manufacturer Sunbelt Rental Hertz Rental Southern Sweepers & Scrubbers Call well ahead of your need as equipment must be set up properly to handle special surfaces, extra time is needed for that
