WHAT ARE WEARABLE PARTS?
Wearable parts, also called consumables, are the parts that are designed to wear down over time on your machine so as to protect the more vital, often more expensive, components of the equipment being operated. These are things like brooms, brushes, squeegees, tires, belts, linkages, hoses, gaskets, filters, seats, batteries, fuses, accessories, oils, lubricants, etc. There’s a lot of clever engineering that goes into designing your machines to help save you money and headaches in the future by building them this way. It’s always very important to keep commonly replaced parts stocked so you can, quick, swap out a broom and keep on sweeping. You don’t need to have a parts storage area that looks like the ending of Raiders of the Lost Ark, just a replacement broom or brush, and maybe a few squeegees and filters. We’ve got you covered either way, just trying to set you up for success down the line!
WHAT ARE REPLACEMENT PARTS?
Replacement parts are typically considered parts that aren’t necessarily designed to be replaced over time, even though they can be. Things like doors, steering wheels, bumpers, engines, motors, handles, switches, electrical components, headlights, tail lights, etc. Your machine will likely bash into a wall or other piece of equipment and damage one such component. Or maybe the oil was never changed and the engine seized up. Vacuum Motor could’ve fried due to a hose clogging and blocking air flow. No matter the reason, we’ve got you covered when it comes to your replacement parts! We work with all major manufacturers to provide you with a deep catalog of all OEM & Aftermarket parts for your equipment fleet, ensuring you maintain maximum uptime and peak productivity. We have parts experts here to dig into the details and pour over the parts manuals to make sure you’re taken care of. We are here to help you continue to get the job done.

Common Consumable Parts for Scrubbers and Sweepers
For best cleaning performance, and to avoid damage to your machine, be sure to maintain and replace wearable parts as recommended by your machine’s manufacturer.
We recommend keeping your own stock of the most common parts on hand, to minimize potential downtime. Consult your machine’s user manual to learn about how to best care for your scrubber or sweeper, and to identify part numbers.
While there are hundreds of parts for various models of floor cleaners, the following are the most well-known and most likely to need attention:
Engine Air Filters and Oil Filters
For sweepers in particular, we highly recommend investing in a quality air filter, especially in dust-heavy facilities. Whether OEM or aftermarket, just make sure you get a good one. Filters are in place to prevent dirt that is collected from the ground to access the motor. Therefore, a blocked filter could affect airflow or eventually wear out, which could damage the motor of your cleaner. Filters can and should be cleaned after each use, and you should replace them when they become brittle or old. Check the packaging of your filters for more information — each filter has its own recommendations for usage. Some filters can be rinsed with water, and others are not replaceable.
Scrubber Squeegee Blades
One of the most important floor scrubber parts is a squeegee blade. These rubber-like blades attach to the machine and are used to wipe liquid from flat, smooth surfaces. When used in combination with a pressure pump, squeegee blades release grime from the floor and wipe it away to create a clean, new surface. If your floor scrubbing machine is starting to leave lines of dirt or liquid behind after use, it could be a sign that a squeegee blade is beginning to wear down (or that it needs to be adjusted). If the squeegee has holes, tears, or cracks, or seems brittle, it should be replaced. New blades should be the same size as the blades being replaced. The user manual of your machine should describe the replacement process in detail.
Scrubber Brushes & Sweeper Brooms
Your scrubber brushes and sweeper brooms do a lot of the hard, physical work of cleaning, which means that they also tend to wear out over time. You can get more life out of your sweeper broom by periodically rotating and adjusting it, but eventually you’ll need a replacement. Not sure what you need?

Equipment Belts and Chains
When vacuums, floor scrubbers, extractors and other pieces of cleaning equipment operate, they generate heat. The heat from regular use causes rubber belts inside of the machines – belts that allow for smooth operations – to stretch and slip. Because these belts are responsible for spinning brushes and other cleaning mechanisms, a machine with an old belt won’t function as effectively as one with belts that are changed regularly. Belts are critical and should be checked regularly. You can replace them every 6 months to one year, depending on use.
Scrubber and Sweeper Accessories
Attachments and accessories can get lost or damaged due to their external or detachable nature. When any of the variety of parts tailored for your specific cleaning application wear out or go missing, let us help you find a replacement.
