The vacuum system is the part of the scrubber that allows the squeegee to suck up the excess water and moisture from the floors. After the cleaning solution is sprayed through the scrub head onto the floor and the brushes do their work, the moisture is then removed from the floors through the squeegee by the vacuum fan.
The vacuum filter or screen is an important component of an optimally functioning vacuum system. Therefore, it is critical to ensure the filter is always free of debris. Pre-sweeping is important in order to prevent the vacuum system from clogging with debris. Another tip to keep your vacuum system working at peak performance is to run the vacuum motor for several minutes after the machine is done cleaning. This will help remove excess moisture from the system and therefore lessen the risk of corrosion that could damage to vacuum motor.
