Polishers & Scrubbers FAQs

How does a floor scrubber work?

  • Whether you choose a ride-on unit or a walk-behind model, both function in roughly the same way. The unit distributes water inside the brush or brushes, then through the tank. Next, the squeegee and vacuum work together to recover the water and distribute it back into the recovery tank. 

Should I use a floor polisher or scrubber?

  • The use of one or the other depends on your project needs. A floor polisher typically uses pads or sandpaper for stripping, screening, scrubbing or bonnet cleaning. A floor polisher leaves the floor glossy and polished. Floor scrubbers, however, are designed to clean large surface areas in a small amount of time and can aid in dust and debris collection. 

Does buffing hardwood floors remove scratches?

  • Yes. Buffing floors can remove minor scratches and nicks and can even improve the quality of the floor by leaving it polished with a shine.
