Rober Scott Mop Bucket & Wringer 25L
Robert Scott Bucket with Wringer Buffalo Review
Regardless of the type of surface, be it hardwood, linoleum, vinyl and natural stone, the floor needs to be cleaned regularly. This is for both homes and business environments, since the floors come under a barrage of abuse on a daily basis. Take impressions for instance. The gunk building up on the floor, from the dust to the stuck-on grime and the stains from food and drink spills, takes away the appeal of the installation. When clients and other visitors come to your business premises, you want them to have confidence on your products and services, not start doubting your brand because of the state of affairs that they have found you in. Dirt tracked in from the outdoors, pet fur and dander, beverages like coffee and wine that wind up on the floor, grease residue which in itself is a dirt magnet, trapping particles from the surrounding airspace and increasing the rate of soiling, rubber marks, bituminous residue, that oil that spilled and formed an unsightly mess, ketchup smudges- they all need to be got rid of. There’s more than just the aesthetics that are on the line. The structural integrity of the floor, from the protective treatments that are applied on it to the underlying material itself, are at risk when dirt and debris are allowed to build up. More so in commercial establishments, which handle high levels of traffic day after day. These particles get grinded against the surface of the floor, wearing down the finishes. With these deteriorating, the risk of sunlight, water and chemicals causing more damage intensifies. As such, you want to ensure you’ve carried out a thorough cleaning. The results you obtain depend on the equipment you use. This ranges from the cleaning solutions themselves and their compatibility with the surface material, the stains being targeted for elimination, brushes, cloths, and mops, all through to units like the Robert Scott Bucket with Wringer Buffalo.
Enter Buckets With Wringers
The structure of such units comes down to the two basic components: the bucket and the wringer. The bucket holds the solution to be used. Acidic cleaners, alkaline formulations, and even cases where the warm water is needed- they all go here. Different scenarios call for various chemicals to be used, as you handle the various inorganic and organic stains, deal with degreasers, plus even formulations to get rid of the water- and oil-based stains. While some cases have neutral cleaners being used, there will be those instances when harsh chemicals are required, especially when you’re dealing with stubborn stains and heavy build-ups of grime. While the chemicals dissolve the gunk, you don’t want them attacking the bucket too. As such, the material used needs to be able to retain its efficiency under the various conditions. The size of the bucket also comes into focus, which is usually guided by the square footage of the area that you want to work on. Larger sections with higher levels of traffic, and consequently more spills, will require one to use buckets that can hold more volumes. How is the bucket moved around the premises? Is it to be carried, or does it have wheels? When you have a lot of square footage to cover, you don’t fancy carrying a heavy bucket around the place. Not only will it tire you out quickly, but it can also result in muscle strain especially for the cleaning staff who handle lots of work daily. Using one with wheels comes in handy to avoid the cumbersome nature of carrying around the bucket by hand, which also causes spills and drips.
Then there is the wringer. In order to prevent slip accidents, it is vital to keep excess water off the floor as the mopping is being carried out. In addition, when excess water is used for the task, and not soaked up, then the drying time will increase. The longer the floor is out of commission, the more the disruption to the routine activities on your premises. Controlling the amount of water that winds up being distributed on the surface is key, which is the rationale being wringing it out. There are also those scenarios- like when you’re working on wood floors and vinyl installations, where the mop should be wrung out of as much water as possible, just leaving it slightly damp. Doing this with your hands is not sanitary, as it exposes you to whatever pathogens are in the dirty water. The wringer allows you to squeeze out the water from the mop easily, which will subsequently reduce the amount of liquid that gets spread onto the floor. The combination of the Robert Scott Bucket with Wringer Buffalo comes in to enable you to get optimal performance of these component parts.
