Proquip Recommend Things to Consider Before Buying a Floor Polisher

Proquip’s mission is to provide innovative and reliable equipment solutions to achieve cleaner and healthier environments, and this month they have some practical recommendations for buying a floor polisher.

There is nothing more arresting than a highly polished floor, but there is also nothing worse than a dull and scratched surface. If you have a dull floor area that needs to be brought back to life, then you will need an industrial grade floor polisher to do the job. There are loads of cleaning equipment products on the market, so that means you need to make the best choice for what you really want to achieve when revitalising your floor.

If you’re looking for high quality polishing that leaves a mirror-like reflective finish on the floor, then Proquip’s ultra-high-speed machines of 1000rpm to 1500rpm are ideal. So, if you want something that can achieve a heavy-duty scrub or an old polish strip, a heavier and slower speed machine is for you. In the same breath, a lighter, faster floor polisher leaves floors with superior mirror-like finishes.

Floor polishers can be customised with additional accessories to enhance performance, and one of the most important floor polisher accessories you may want to invest in is a vacuum attachment – useful for sucking up the dust generated by polishing a floor on high speeds. This prevents environmental and health-related complications as dust isn’t allowed to build up, lowering risk of cross-contamination and skirting edge discolouration.  

Proquip provide a quick breakdown on choosing polish pads:

Black pads – aggressive, durable and consistent, great for wet-stripping applications

Green pads – used for heavy-duty wet scrubbing, removing tough scuff marks in soiled, heavy-traffic areas

Blue pads – general scrubbing or heavy spray cleaning

Red buffer pads – ideal for a high gloss finish when dry or spray buffing

White – non-abrasive polishing, yields mirror gloss shine

So, you can bring the shine back to your floor with a floor polisher from Proquip, the nationwide leaders in commercial cleaning equipment.
