Don’t Get Swept Up In Confusion

Choosing the right industrial floor-cleaning equipment for your facility’s needs can go from being simple to complex with just one question: What is the application?

At Mid Columbia Forklift and MidCo Material Handling we help you take that question and all the rest that follow into consideration when it comes to choosing the best industrial floor-cleaning equipment for your application. With every factor in mind, we ensure that you receive the best equipment for the task at hand.

The application use is the most important factor to consider when shopping for a sweeper, scrubber or combo unit. Do you only need a sweeper, to pick up dirt and debris? Or do you only need a scrubber to get rid of scuffs and skids on the floor? What if you need to clear debris and erase floor marks?

The next factor to consider can also be the most costly if it is not accurately evaluated. Because Mid Columbia Forklift and MidCo Material Handling offer a wide selection of industrial cleaning units there is much that goes into picking the right one that will be the most efficient and cost-effective, raising the question of whether a walk-behind unit or a ride-on unit would be the most profitable for your company’s situation.

With 90% of cleaning costs coming from labor, the application also defines the answer to walk-behind/ride-on questions. If the application involves a larger area with fewer narrow aisles then a ride-on unit would the ideal pick and could essentially produce a 64% productivity gain in comparison to a walk-behind unit.

Whether your application is indoors or outdoors, for a hard floor or soft surface, Mid Columbia Forklift and MidCo Material Handling will work with you to come up with the best solutions for your industrial floor-cleaning equipment investment.

We carry Advance and Factory Cat brands each with many models to give you a wide selection to choose from. So no matter your commercial or industrial floor care needs, Mid Columbia Forklift and MidCo Material Handling assist with getting your proper equipment for your application needs.
