As the machine moves forward, the squeegee removes the dirty water and moisture that remains after the brushes on the scrub head clean the floor. One of the benefits of using a floor scrubber is its ability to leave the floors dry after cleaning. The wet floor left behind by a typical mop and bucket can be slip, trip, or fall hazard for employees and customers. A quality squeegee assembly removes the maximum amount of water and is a very important part of an effective floor scrubber. The blade of a good squeegee assembly is made from durable rubber or silicone compounds and the metal will not corrode over time from contact with floor cleaning chemicals. The unique stainless steel parabolic squeegee with urethane blade that comes standard on the Floor Scrubber, for example, will not rust or corrode, even with daily use.
