When you are looking at buying a floor scrubber you may be asked if you need brushes or pad drivers on your scrubber. And you may not even know what a pad driver is. Let's start with the brush. Brushes come in a variety of different grits and materials. Usually gritty or stiffer brushes work great on concrete in your warehouse or shop floor. But if you have a nice epoxy or polished-concrete floor you would want to go with a softer brush or pad driver.
A pad driver has short stiff bristles or a velcro-type material had holds a floor cleaning pad on it. Notice in the picture the green pad on this scrubber. These pads come in different colors from soft white to course brown or black. These are mainly used on VCT or (Vinyl composition tile) flooring. You see these a lot in grocery stores and other large retail facility floors that have wax or floor finish on them to make the floor shiny. Soft red or white pads clean the floor and do not scratch or remove the floor finish.
If you have a really nice polished-concrete or a waxed floor you might consider a pad driver. However, a really soft nylon brush can be very effective and eliminate the need to change pads. If you have any questions feel free to give us a call: 501-844-1811.
