What Are Floor Buffers?

If you ever had to clean your hardwood or tile floor, you know how much work that is. It is never easy to make it shiny clean, no matter how much energy and will you have to do it. And this is especially the case when you have to clean large a room or some other big surface area. The amount of work involved is quite stunning and if we want to do it properly, we need to spend entire day doing it.

But this is why we have floor buffers. Those are machines that are made for cleaning different types of flooring. They can also polish them and but the wax that will keep them shiny and new. There are all kinds of these machines, some of them are used in homes, other for commercial purposes. It all depends on the needs, or how many square feet you need to clean.

They are used for surface scrubbing, stripping and buffing. And they range from Low speed, Dual speed to High speed floors buffers. Some of them are battery operated, while others, more powerful ones, use propane as a fuel. And just like the different needs they fulfill, the price they have also ranges a lot. Some of them cost around $500, while other are even more then $4,000.

The price is determined by the specifications of a scrubbing machine. The diameter is one of the most important factors, since that determines what amount of surface can a floor buffer clean in one pass. That size ranges from 12" to a huge 27 inches in diameter. The small ones a good for homes and other places that have modest areas to clean. Bathrooms or kitchen floors are usually maintained with these. Large machines are used for commercial purposes, when there is a cleaning company in the question or a office that has a lot of floors to take care of.

There are many other features and specifications that are relevant to the buyer and user. Some of them are the motor horse power, the capacity of a cleaning tank, how much pressure pads can deliver etc. These are all details that will be important to anyone who has special needs to take care of. If you are only looking for a home floor buffer, then a most basic unit will suffice. For something more serious, you can get one of the larger machines that can cover a lot of ground and are ready to deal with tougher stains.

Some of the companies that produce these machines are: Eagle, Kent Euroclean, Hawk, NuSource, Oreck, Onyx and Sanitaire. They have a large selection of these machines and are offering something for everyone. You can find these machines on many online shops, not only on the sites of manufacturers. I suggest you read few reviews of the machines you are interested in and think about the options you have. That will be perfect for finding the best floor buffer for your needs.
