How Would I Maintain My Floor Equipment?

Daily Maintenance

1. Remove and clean pads or brushes. Never use soiled pads when cleaning. Replace pads when they become packed with residue.

2. Remove and clean debris from the float shut?off screen and drain saver located inside the recovery tank.

3. Drain and rinse tanks thoroughly

4. Inspect vacuum hose for any objects obstructing the air flow.

5. Raise squeegee and wipe blades with a clean cloth. Store squeegee in the raised position to prevent damage or setting of the blades.

6. Wipe down machine if needed. Use a nonabrasive, non solvent cleaner, or a clean damp cloth.

7. Recharge the batteries if needed.

 

Weekly Maintenance

1. Check battery water level in each cell of the batteries, and fill as needed. Always use distilled water to refill batteries. Batteries should be filled approximately 3/4″ to 1″ above the plates. Overfilling will cause the batteries to leak during charging. The charging process creates gas bubbles inside the battery, which effectively increases the volume of the electrolyte.

2. Clean battery tops to prevent corrosion.

3. Rotate brushes. Rotate the left to the right and right to left.  On cylindrical models rotate from front to back, or end to end if using different materials.

4. Drain and rinse tanks thoroughly. To thoroughly flush out any solution chemicals in solution line and valves, refill solution tank with a few gallons of warm clean water and run machine until tank is empty.

 

Monthly Maintenance

1. Check scrub head and squeegee lifting cables for wear and spring tension.

2. Check machine for water leaks and loose nuts and bolts.

3. Check to see if battery cables are tightened (Tighten if needed)

4. Check parking brake

 

Quarterly Maintenance

1. Call your local dealer for quarterly maintenance

 

Storing Machine

1. Flush the tanks out completely. To thoroughly flush out any solution chemicals in solution line and valves, refill solution tank with a few gallons of warm clean water and run machine until tank is empty.

2. Open the recovery tank lid to promote air circulation.

3. Raise brushes and squeegee.
