Floor Scrubber Squeegee Blade

 

What are Floor Scrubber Squeegee Blades?

Squeegee blades are rubber blades attached in a squeegee. They are the main part of the squeegee that is used to wipe away the liquid off flat surfaces. The squeegee blades are often made of neoprene or FDA approved rubber for commercial use. Floor scrubber or squeegee vacuums also use these blades to wipe away the water once the machine has cleaned the floor with it. The floor scrubber squeegee blades are made specially to fit in the floor scrubbing machines.

Floor scrubbing machines are used in places where there is extra hygienic cleaning required. That is why they are used in combination with pressure pumps. The pressure pumps are used to release the grime from every nook and corner. The floor-scrubbing machine is used to wipe it away and give a complete spick-and-span look.

How to Check if a Squeegee Blade Needs a Replacement

The floor scrubber squeegee blade needs to be replaced after a while. Floor scrubbing machines are usually used in spaces like hospitals and restaurants which are big in size and require spotless cleaning. They may need frequent replacement to keep providing spotless cleaning depending on the use of the blades. It is also easy to replace them because they are highly inexpensive.

One of the most obvious telltale signs that the squeegee blades need replacement is that the floor scrubbing machine will start to leave water or narrow blotches of dirt behind. To further check that the squeegee blades are completely worn out, take them out of the machine. Place them in hot water and check for any signs of wear and tear. Simply inversing the blades can also work, but if you can detect slashes or the rubber looks too brittle then it may be time to replace it.
