Diamonds Are Floorever
Many operators recognise the floor care productivity gains that can be made with a scrubber drier. For most the machine is used simply to replace or replicate conventional wet mopping processes with a mechanical equivalent. Results are achieved more quickly and with greater consistency while the ability of the machine to remove water and leave the floor ready for use adds a third benefit. Good as these advantages are, many operators remain unaware that scrubber driers also offer the prospect of genuine innovation with enhanced productivity and sustainability when used with one of the latest-generation pads from the TASKI Twister range from Diversey Care.
The TASKI Twister pads contain billions of microscopic diamonds that clean and maintain the natural shine and gloss of the floor through their mechanical action. They are designed for use with water alone which eliminates chemicals from floorcare tasks for predictable and reduced costs. This promotes sustainability while enabling operators to deliver consistently high quality results. Removing chemicals from floor care also eliminates the time spent preparing solutions prior to work or rinsing machines through afterwards. More of the available time can therefore be spent on productive work.
Pads with a range of diamond size are available for almost every type of floor. The more abrasive versions with the larger particles are especially suited to soil removal and floor renovation while the pads with the smaller diamonds are typically used for maintenance and polishing. The choice of pads available means that scrubber drier operators can select the performance characteristics ideally suited to their specific floor type and application.
By ensuring the floor remains in perfect condition the TASKI Twister pad can eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming periodic maintenance. The pads also remove 80 per cent more bacteria than conventional floor cleaning methods which can make them an ideal choice where higher hygiene standards are required, such as food retailing, hotels and restaurants, and hospitals and care homes.
For many applications the TASKI Twister can simply replace the conventional pads used with TASKI rotary machines or the medium-large range of advanced TASKI swingo scrubber driers. This high performance scrubber drier range comprises compact, walk-behind and ride-on models suitable for every floor care application from smaller areas such as kitchens and washrooms to the largest spaces found in supermarkets, shopping malls and airports. All models in the range offer superior performance to cover large areas quickly and with reduced need for repeat cleaning which promotes improved productivity and reduces operating costs.
Diversey Care has invested significant R&D resources in the development of new categories of compact and ultra compact automatic scrubber driers for thorough cleaning of smaller congested areas. This development focus has resulted in the recent launch of three truly versatile TASKI swingo scrubber driers: TASKI swingo 150e, TASKI swingo 350e/350b and the TASKI swingo 455e/455b walk-behind machines.
The most advanced performance and sustainability benefits are achieved when other features of the TASKI swingo range are employed. With the patented TASKI IntelliFlow system, for example, the scrubber drier automatically adjusts the amount of water being used to match the machine’s speed. This reduces water consumption by up to 50 per cent and ensures no puddles are left on the floor, even when slowing down to turn corners. The patented squeegee design and direct suction pick-up ensures 99 per cent of water/solution is always removed to leave the floor ready for use.
The combination of TASKI machine and TASKI Twister pads offers significant productivity, performance and sustainability savings over the working life of the equipment. These “whole-life-costs” should always be considered when choosing floorcare machines because the consistency and reliability that results from making the right purchasing decision leads to predictable and lower operating costs over many years.
