Many landlords try to encourage their tenants to keep their apartments clean. While these efforts can ineffective, there are things that landlords can do to make it easier for tenants to keep their apartments clean. One of the most effective tactics is to provide the tenants with cleaning equipment. This equipment can be as simple and cheap as paper towels and cleaning chemicals. However, a landlord that truly wants his or her tenants to keep the apartment as clean as possible should provide a full selection of cleaning equipment, including a tennant floor scrubber.
The advantages of a tennant floor scrubber
There are many advantages of letting tenants in your building have access to a floor scrubber. As previously mentioned, they can do the cleaning themselves and save you a great deal of time and money. However, a look at the benefits of the cleaning itself is further proof that the purchase of a floor scrubber for the building is worth it.
Regular cleanings with a quality floor scrubber can not only improve the appearance of a floor, but they can extend the life of the surface as well. Residue and debris that would otherwise damage the flooring material is removed before it can hurt anything. The life of the floor can be extended for years and years.
The landlord will not need to replace the flooring nearly as often, which will save him or her a great deal of money in the long run. Floor scrubbers may not be the cheapest of cleaning equipment, but they do provide a significant return on investment. Also, the initial purchase doesn’t have to break the bank. There are ways, detailed in the next section, that you can save hundreds on a quality floor scrubber.
Buying a used floor scrubber
Buying a used floor scrubber is a good way to save money. Floor scrubbers are complicated and powerful machines, and are not cheap. However, a used model in good shape will be just as effective as a new scrubber. After you’ve found a reputable seller of used scrubbers, ask them all the questions you can think of about their used scrubber inventory. They will be happy to answer any questions you might have, and to point you in the right direction as far as which of their scrubbers you should buy. Remember to keep in mind the need of ease of use, as the tenants are not trained professionals. Also, (as the employees of the company selling the scrubber will no doubt tell you) you need to make sure you’re getting the right scrubber for whatever surface the floors are made of. Most scrubbers have multiple settings for different surfaces. Ensure that the scrubber you’re interested in buying has the right settings for your floor. If it doesn’t, the floors could end up being damaged.
