Help Your Floor Scrubber Brushes Last Longer

A couple of quick tips to make your scrubber work like the day you bought it
Are your operators rotating the brushes? Have you ever noticed that a good push broom has two holes on the broom block? Obviously, this extra hole is so that you can move the handle when the floor scrubber bristles become bent in one direction and the broom does not sweep any more. We have this same issue with the scrub brushes on your floor scrubber.
Over time, usually within about 20 hours of use, the bristles on your floor scrubber scrub brushes bend over in the direction the brush is turning. If you rub your hand in the direction of the bristles, you will notice that even the most coarse brushes feel completely smooth. If you move your hand the other direction on the brush, they feel very rough.
Like a push broom, we have an easy fix to this problem. Simply rotate the brushes by switching one for the other. The scrubber will clean five times better. Make sure your operator does this about every two weeks.
