Choose The Right Power Source For Your Floor Maintenance Machinery

Posted on

If you have a large store that you are trying to keep clean, you know that there is a lot of floor maintenance that you need to do to keep your floors looking nice. They need to be scrubbed, buffed, stripped, and waxed so that they not only look good but so that they last longer. That takes a lot of work and is impossible to do by hand. Luckily, there are machines that make it much easier to do. You can choose to get scrubbers and strippers that you can walk behind, or, if your store has a lot of square footage, you can choose to get machines that can be ridden, which will make it easier to get everything done quicker. There are different fuel sources you can choose from. 


Some of the floor maintenance machinery, especially the smaller ones like buffers and strippers, can run on electricity. There are pros and cons to having machines that run on electricity. One drawback is that you have to make sure that there are plenty of outlets around to make sure that the machines can run. Another is that the cords can get caught on shelves and such. One of the pros is that you don't have to worry about refueling a tank; all you have to do is plug it in and go. 


Propane is a gas that is compressed into a liquid and then stored in pressurized tanks. It gets used in a wide variety of places, everything from air conditioners to floor scrubbers. While propane can be used in any of the floor maintenance machines, it's more often seen in the big ones that get ridden on. There are a lot of benefits to using a propane-powered floor maintenance machine. One is that you aren't having to worry about trying to find electrical outlets where you need them. That can give you a lot of mobility when you are trying to get your floors nice and clean. Another benefit is that propane is very common, so you can get new tanks of propane just about anywhere. For more information on propane gas, contact a company like Graves (John) Propane Of Arizona Inc.
