17.5" Floor Squeegee Review
You want to keep your floors clean and dry for plenty of reasons. First, wet floors are a magnet for dirt. They easily trap dust and other particles in the atmosphere. This just messes things up, making a mockery of your cleaning efforts. Then there’s the sanitation issue. As your kids play around the floor, they can end up picking pathogens and pests. For instance, children under the age of 2 are at the higher risk, as they play on it and put their hands into their mouths over 70 times an hour. You don't want your little one gobbling up the dirt that's tracked into your home. Commercial establishments handle higher human traffic, hence the floor will need to be cleaned more often. People coming from a jog in the park into the gym, walking from bus or train stations then on sidewalks into your office building, all through to the high numbers in malls and retail stores, there will be all sorts of substances under their shoes. You don't want to inconvenience your employees and customers by sealing off passageways and offices for too long, hampering the numerous operations of your business. Getting the floor all cleaned up and dry fast requires you to have tools that have been specially designed for the task. Turn to the 17.5" Floor Squeegee.
No one likes water stains on their floors. They are a constant eyesore, and they ruin the elegance of the premises. The water stains are most commonly caused by allowing paddles to stand on the floor for too long. Sometimes it’s after a spill, and other times there was simply too much water used during the cleaning. Water affects the flooring differently. Some surfaces will lose their colour, others like wood can end up cupping. This puts the structural integrity of the flooring at risk. However, since the floor needs to be cleaned, you can't circumvent using the water and solutions. However, removing as much water as possible after you're done will enable you to avoid the problems that would have been caused. The 17.5" Floor Squeegee enables you to do this, since pushing off the water to the drain enables the floor surface to dry faster. This also makes it handy tool during situations like when rain gets into the house, or after a pipe leaks causing a flood. By preventing water damage, you get to protect your investment and lengthen its life.
