Large area cleaning is a beast...

When talking about cleaning ‘large areas’, we are talking about facilities of 10,000 square metres and above (think of the size of approximately 2-3 football fields). So not your dad’s shed (unless of course he has one that’s 10,000 sqm), and not your local gym. These are locations with a lot of surface area to cover quickly, depending on the industry. 


These areas require heavy-duty, ride-on cleaning machinery solutions that either sweep, scrub or do a combination of both. Determining which cleaning method works best for your area, and selecting a model that will best help facilitate this is paramount for maximum value in your cleaning investment, financially and operationally.

Getting you started...

Sweep only? Scrub & dry only? Or sweep, scrub & dry?
Depending on how you answered the above questions will guide you to which cleaning method your equipment needs to do. Below we go through the different cleaning methods and the type of equipment required to do it.
