Benefits of Vacuum Cleaners

Counting the Benefits of Vacuum Cleaners

The benefits of vacuum cleaners are many although not all of those that make use of them will necessarily rate them in the same order. For the busy home executive or domestic worker, it is very often the time saved when using these speedy devices that is of the greatest importance, leaving them more time to tackle the many other pressing daily chores.

For the older or less mobile user, it is likely to be the ease of handling when compared to the back-breaking effort of tackling the job armed with only a brush and pan that will top his or her list of needs. Where, instead, the most important requirement of a user may be for very high standards of hygiene, there are units that are designed to meet and even to exceed their needs.

Saving time, limiting fatigue and offering exceptional cleaning power, these machines are nothing if not versatile. Today’s wide range of models incorporates units for use in the home, on large commercial premises and in all manner of heavy industries.

Many of them are to be found in the armoury of cleaning tools employed by the growing number of contract cleaning companies to which many businesses now prefer to outsource their cleaning requirements. For these third-party service providers, both the impressive results offered and the time saved by these machines can ensure their success.

Environmental impact has become an important issue today and manufacturers have been quick to respond to new needs with eco-friendly and silent machines designed to reduce power consumption and noise pollution respectively. At the same time, this is an industry that must cater for tasks as divergent as carpet cleaning and tackling the spillage of hazardous materials.

ITS Africa has positioned itself as an expert in all aspects of both domestic and industrial cleaning. Suppliers of top selling equipment from Kärcher, Numatic, Sibilia and Vortex to name just a few international industry leaders, the company offers equipment to meet any cleaning task and is well-qualified to discuss the many benefits of their various vacuum cleaners.

Industrial Floor Cleaning Equipment

Numatic® Industrial Floor Cleaning Equipment

Industrial floor cleaning equipment is used where man power is not fast or efficient enough in cleaning large areas and where waste may often be toxic or hazardous and unsuitable for humans to clear.  Even menial tasks like sweeping and mopping can be automated with the appropriate equipment and these mechanical sweepers are much faster than a person with a broom and can sweep up to 200 m2 per hour.  Numatic® is an internationally renowned manufacturer of such floor cleaning equipment.

Industrial Floor Cleaning Equipment For Scrubbing And Polishing

Numatic’s smallest scrubbers normally use 33 cm brush fittings with a typical operating speed of 200 revolutions per minute; these units are compact and very easy to manoeuvre, usually weighing less than 20 kg.  Scrubbers can deep-clean even structured floors with a vigorous scrubbing action when the appropriate scrubber fitting is used; larger models use brushes up to 40 cm in diameter.  Depending on the brush fitted, these scrubbers can also be used for rotary carpet cleaning and for polishing floors to a deep sheen.industrial floor cleaning equipment

Scrubber-driers are one step up in industrial floor cleaning equipment, as they dry the floor at the same time.  Some of these are walk-behind units, but the ride-on models are more convenient and can clean larger areas at a time; more than 1,500 m2 per hour, in fact.

Other scrubber-drier models include industrial floor cleaning equipment like Numatic’s escalator cleaners, which can even clean an escalator while it is running.  However, for small offices and premises, the Numatic® TT 1535 S is ideal with its low 38 kg weight and 15-litre clean tank.  It still boats a 1,000-Watt motor and with water pickup nozzles on either side, it allows for multi-directional operation.
