There are five areas on floor cleaning equipment to maintain on both types of machines.

  1. Recovery Tanks: They should be emptied and rinsed then clean the shut-off filters and leave the lids off so that they can air dry.
  2. Solution Tanks: They should be emptied as well if you leave the solution in the tank it will gum up your filters and affect performance.
  3. Brushes / Pads: They should be cleaned and rinsed after each use.
  4. Vacuum Ports and Squeegees: They should be cleaned quickly after each use before the dirt dries on it.
  5. Jets: They should be maintained regularly so that they spray evenly on the floor.
    To clean them just soak them in a mixture of vinegar and water overnight to remove the built up mineral deposits.
