There are many different cleaning machines available for commercial, industrial and domestic use on the market today. These fall into several categories, each has its own specialty and purpose. These categories will be explained in this article.
Dry Tub Vacuum Cleaners
These are the conventional vacuum cleaners used in domestic and commercial situations. They generally have a base which contains the electric motor, vacuum assembly and storage for the mains cable and accessories. A hose is normally attached to the base and a nozzle or attachment is fitted to the end. The power of these cleaning machines is measured in several ways but the most useful is the airflow statistic. The lower power units may be less than 40 litres per second, while the most powerful go beyond 80 litres per second.
Industrial Vacuum Cleaners
These machines tend to be far larger than dry tub vacuums. The extra capacity and range allows larger floor spaces to be covered much more quickly. This makes a huge difference if larger tasks are being carried out on a regular basis.
Upright Vacuum Cleaners
These are the standard upright vacuums you are used to seeing around the home. While they tend to be less manoeuvrable than their dry tub counterparts, they can be used in for the same tasks and remain a popular choice.
Wet Pickup Vacuums Cleaners
The overall design of these cleaning machines is similar to the dry tub vacuum; however they also soak and rinse the carpet flooring while it is being vacuumed. The waste water is collected in the cleaning machine to be emptied later. Using either water or a cleaning solution spills and stains are removed with ease.
These are some of the largest cleaning machines. You may be used to seeing them around supermarkets and other commercial workplaces. They are generally used on hard floors and contain some sort of power supply to allow them to move as far as possible without interruption. While the majority are easy to use, some require specialised training especially if they have motorised wheels. Once the onboard power is spent they must be full recharged.
These are essentially manually driven versions of the mechanism on a street sweeper. This allows litter of any kind to be collected from an indoor or outdoor floor surface.
These are slightly larger versions of the wet pickup vacuums. Specifically designed for commercial or industrial environments, these cleaning machines will allow the operator to quickly clean carpeted areas to a professional standard with the minimum of effort.
These heavy duty cleaning machines are generally used on tiled or parquet flooring to provide a shiny finish. They are held by the operator in a similar way to the upright vacuum cleaner.
These cleaning machines are intended to degrease and sanitise appliances such as hobs, ovens etc. Some of these machines use a continuous fill instead of using a tank so that they can run continuously without the need to refill it with water.
These incredibly useful cleaning machines can be used to clean walls, floors and even vehicles extremely quickly and thoroughly.
