Cleaning Equipment Parts and Maintenance

Bortek Industries™ sells replacement floor scrubber parts and street sweeper parts for use in commercial cleaning equipment. Without a doubt, over the life of your equipment, various parts will need to be fixed or replaced. Thankfully, Bortek Industries makes it easy to identify the parts or accessories required, whether you are looking for floor scrubber parts or street sweeper parts.

If you’ve decided on a specific direction regarding equipment or you’re looking for information relating to floor cleaning equipment parts, learning about parts and maintenance is critical. 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:

 

BATTERIES

As it pertains to floor scrubber parts, vacuum parts or any other cleaner’s parts, batteries top the list as far as both potential problems and overall importance are concerned. Just like a car battery, if a floor cleaner’s battery no longer runs adequately, cleaning will not be efficient.If you have trouble turning your floor cleaner on or you think your cleaner sounds different, it’s a good idea to check on the battery. Consider charging batteries every 10-14 days based on regular use and to get the most out of them. Do this regularly and replace as needed to ensure the highest level of efficiency for your machine.

BELTS

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.

FILTERS

Most pieces of floor cleaning equipment have filters. 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. Learn about your machine’s needs and act accordingly.Most pieces of floor cleaning equipment have filters. Filters are in place to prevent dirt that is collected from the ground to access the motor.

SQUEEGEE BLADES

One of the most important floor scrubber parts is a squeegee blade. These rubber 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.

In most cases, these rubber blades can be removed and placed in warm water to examine closely for signs of wear: holes, tears and cracks. If a blade 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.

 

BRUSHES AND ACCESSORIES

Brushes and accessories are easy to lose and easy to damage because of their removable, external properties. Sometimes a specific floor cleaning job will require cleaning equipment parts that a large machine cannot tackle. Brushes and accessories allow for cleaning tight corners, high locations, furniture, vents, stairs and more. Each machine has various accessories that have unique purposes. When a piece goes missing or begins to wear out, it’s best to search for a new part that matches your machine’s make and your cleaning needs.
