Put away the mop and eliminate the bucket for a more productive and more hygienic microscrubber that is faster, safer and will result in cleaner floors than the traditional mop and bucket.
Microscrubbers will provide you with clean and dry floors and are easier to use than a mop. Cleaning cramped, high traffic areas has always been a challenge for convenience stores, coffee shops, fast food restaurants, and gas stations – any place where space is at a premium. Ensure clean, streak free floors with optimal water recovery that eliminates streaks and maximizes soil removal. The mop and bucket spreads dirty water around the floor, leaving the floors not too clean. Microscrubbers clean the floor like a large scrubber. They wet, agitate and recover the dirty solution.
Micro Scrubbers Leave floors clean and dry in a single pass, making them ideal for day cleaning. They also use clean solution throughout the entire cleaning process, which eliminates cross-contamination. Micro scrubbers can also clean up to five times faster than when using a mop and bucket.
There’s another big advantage to these revolutionary microscrubbers besides their compact size and easy maneuverability. They reduce the risk of slip and fall hazards by picking up all water that mopping leaves behind. Microscrubbers clean and dry floors in a single step. The optimal water recovery even in 180° turns helps minimize the risk of slip and fall injuries in your facility.
Microscrubbers have intuitive, easy-to-understand controls that are designed to simplify training and reduce having to re-clean an area. All microscrubbers offered by WAXIE’s equipment partners have a low operating dBA noise level that enables energy saving daytime cleaning.
Equipment manufacturers have rolled out micro versions of walk-behind and ride-on automatic scrubbers that are optimized to compete with the performance of larger equipment and can automate cleaning of hard to reach areas otherwise handled by mops.
These micro scrubbers, which have cleaning paths as little as 10 inches, are helping budget conscious custodial crews reduce cleaning times by removing manual mop and bucket cleaning of compact spaces, and at the same time increase the quality of cleanliness in their facilities.
These mini autoscrubbers, which have smaller batteries, smaller cleaning deck sizes, and smaller squeegees, are becoming increasingly popular among professional end users because they can be used virtually anywhere that a mop and bucket can. In some cases these small autoscrubbers take up the same amount of space in the janitor’s closet as a mop and bucket.
In many facilities, a large ride-on or walk behind autoscrubber is simply too big for the job at hand. Micro autoscrubbers, however, have proven very valuable for small areas, high traffic quick cleaning in food service, educational institutions, office buildings and hospitality facilities. Because these scrubbers are so small in size, they can be used to easily clean under tables, desks and counters, eliminating the need for custodians to move furniture or manually clean these areas. They are being used to clean under partition walls and around toilets and wall mounted sinks in restrooms. They work well in congested restaurant kitchens, entryways, fitness centers, cafe’s, patient rooms and many other small areas where a quick cleanup is needed. Designed for applications less than 10,000 sq. ft., microscrubbers are perfectly sized for these types of facilities. A custodian using a microscrubber can clean up to 5 times faster than when using a mop and bucket.
Equipment manufacturers are also designing smaller rider and stand-on scrubbers starting in the 20 inch range that are small enough to fit comfortably in elevators in facilities that have multiple floors. These smaller ride-on and stand-on scrubbers also have a smaller footprint than standard walk-behind machines, allowing for increased visibility, operator ergonomics and efficiency while still achieving a clean, dry and safe building environment.

The SC250 uses a powerful 36 V Lithium battery that provides up to 40 minutes of run time and operates at only 66 dB A, allowing for daytime cleaning and cleaning of noise sensitive areas. The cordless design ensures a safer cleaning environment and flexible cleaning options.
The Advance SC351™ is suitable for small to medium sized areas like schools or hospital halls.
