The Benefits of a Used Floor Scrubber

It can be a struggle balancing your budget and ensuring cleanliness in your workplace.

Buying used cleaning equipment can allow you to purchase the latest commercial cleaning floor scrubbers but at a lower cost.

What are the benefits of buying a used floor scrubber and how can it improve your business?


What is the purpose of a floor scrubber?

A floor scrubber saves time and money compared to manual cleaning.

Floor scrubbers work by either walking behind it or riding on it while rotating brushes simultaneously wash, clean, and dry the floor.

It cleans floors in less time and more effectively which means the area can be used quickly.

It is also more hygienic, getting rid of debris, oil, grease, and other tough stains which is important for reducing the spread of infections at work.

Using a used floor scrubber also helps to reduce slips, trips, and falls at work because it dries as it washes.


How long does a floor scrubber last?

The life expectancy of a floor scrubber is years. Maintaining it is easy and will help to prolong its life.

Used floor scrubbers can last just as long because they have been refurbished by Karcher engineers and some only have cosmetic issues such as small unnoticeable scratches.


What are the benefits of a used floor scrubber?

There are lots of advantages of using a used scrubbing machine.



Businesses can struggle with cashflow, and a new commercial floor scrubber can cost anywhere from £2,000 to £20,000. An investment many businesses can’t afford.

Purchasing a used floor scrubber will cost less, allowing you to ensure cleanliness at your work but at a reduced cost.

While you will still have an upfront cost, using a floor scrubber machine can help to reduce infections, sickness absence and pay, and claims from slips or falls.


Eco friendly

Purchasing second hand items is better for the environment.

Our Kärcher used floor scrubbers are in excellent condition and should still last you years.

The eco!efficiency mode means maintenance cleaning can be carried out at reduced power and noise. This can help extend the battery life. It also means less chemicals and water as our cleverly designed cleaning equipment minimises this.

Not only does this help the environment but it helps save costs on procurement of cleaning supplies and you don’t have to order them as often.

Consumers are more conscious about purchasing from businesses who are making eco-friendly decisions and making a positive impact on the planet.

By purchasing used cleaning equipment, you are showing your customers that your business cares about its impact on the planet which helps your reputation and can attract more customers.

New or second-hand scrubbing machine?

Buying used also means it doesn’t cost as much but you can still ensure your workplace is clean, cutting down on infections and staff absence costs, plus the stress of finding alternative staff to cover shifts.
