Water under high pressure can be used to washing surfaces like driveways, pavers, water tanks, vehicles, streets and bridges. It is also referred to as a “universal solvent”, because it can dissolve more substances than any other liquid. Water pressure enhances water’s ability to weaken the bonds of dirt with a surface to help wash away dirt and grime faster.

Here are some of the common hard floor cleaning equipment employed by Adelaide Fibredry for all commercial hard surface cleaning needs.
Automatic Floor Scrubbers
Automatic floor scrubbers, also known as floor scrubbers, help eliminate the need for a traditional mop and bucket for your cleaning needs. Floor scrubbers come with a powerful motor, an automatic cleaning solution dispenser and a powerful vacuuming system. Floor scrubbers can clean concrete, vinyl, rubber, ceramic, terrazzo, marble, granite, and slate floors. They can clean floors with increased power, while being frugal while washing with water and cleaning solutions. They leave your hard surfaces drier and hygienic much faster.

Counter rotating brushes come with rotating brushes that rotate in counter clockwise direction. This equipment absorbs dirt without the need for a vacuum cleaner or a mop. They are very versatile dry cleaners and can be used on different surfaces like carpets, tile grout and concrete floors. These machines rotate so quickly, that they can dislodge dirt and grime effectively.
A floor buffer helps strip and scrub hard floors to improve a floor’s appearance. The machine has a powerful motor and a round pad driver attached to a handle. A floor pad is used to scrub the hard surface. They are moved from side to side as part of the scrubbing and stripping process. Buffers operate at around 175 revolutions per minute to a cleaned scrubbed appearance to a hard surface.
Burnishers are similar to buffers but can spin between 1500 to 2500 revolutions per minute. A burnisher is used to give hard floors the desirable shine. The operator can move the burnisher either forward or backward but not side to side like a buffer. A faster rotating burnisher leaves hard surfaces with a well polished sheen.
