What is a “Bulldog” Scrubber?
A “bulldog” is a dog breed with long hair, which makes it very difficult to shave them. They are often used as guard dogs or working dogs. For example, they are used in police work where they have to keep watch over suspects and other dangerous criminals. They are also used in agriculture, such as cattle herding.
How do I use a “Bulldog” Scrubber?
There are two types of “bulldogs”:
1) The Standard type: These are the most common type of “bulldog”.
Their hair is short enough that it’s easy to shave them. However, their ears may stick out from under their heads if they’re not shaved properly.
The standard type of “bulldog” is the one you’ll see most commonly.
2) The Long Hair type: These “bulldogs” have longer hair than the standard type.
If you don’t shave them correctly, their ears will stick out even further than those of a standard type. These types of “bulldogs” are usually used in agricultural settings where they must keep watch over livestock (and sometimes humans).
Why would anyone want to use a “Bulldog” Scrubber?
Bulldog scrubbers are very sturdy. They are able to survive much longer than other scrubbers in situations in which they would likely be destroyed, such as a restaurant’s dish pit or a manufacturing facility’s industrial sink.
What are the Advantages of a “Bulldog” Scrubber?
One of the primary advantages of using a “bulldog” scrubber is that it won’t wear out as quickly as other types of scrubbers. In fact, the only thing that’s likely to break on one is the scrubbing pad itself.
Another advantage of using a “bulldog” scrubber is that it holds much more cleaning solution than other types of scrubbers. This allows it to hold more sanitizing agent than other types of scrubbers making it better able to fight contamination in situations where it’s difficult to keep cleaned (such as a manufacturing facility’s industrial sink).
Why are “Bulldogs” Better than Other Scrubbers?
When a “bulldog” scrubber becomes worn, you can simply replace the pad and continue using it. This is less expensive than replacing the entire scrubber, which does not happen as often, even over a period of several years.
What are the Disadvantages of a “Bulldog” Scrubber?
One disadvantage of using a “bulldog” scrubber is that, due to its large size, it can be a little bit difficult to store. If you’re space is limited or you have multiple types of scrubbers, this can be an issue. This isn’t really that much of an issue, however. You can always find room for a “bulldog” scrubber if you need to.
How do I Know which type of Scrubber is Best for my Facility?
Since “bulldog” scrubbers are more durable than other types, they’re better for situations where a scrubber is going to be subjected to harsher conditions (such as a manufacturing facility’s industrial sink). If you don’t find yourself in such conditions very often or if your “bulldog” scrubber isn’t exposed to such conditions all the time, you probably won’t notice a significant decrease in its lifespan.
Convenience is another factor to take into consideration. If you have limited storage space or are already using a type of scrubber that works well for you, there probably isn’t any reason for you to switch to “bulldogs”.
This may also be the case if you find yourself cleaning your equipment on a regular basis and do not find it necessary to use a stronger cleaning solution.
So, in short, it’s really more of a matter of personal preference than anything else.
What are the Other Types of Scrubbers?
While the standard type of scrubber is the one that you’re most used to seeing, there are other types as well. These include:
Bubble – A bubble scrubber consists of a shallow basin in which a thick layer of bubbles has formed. The bubbles themselves are not hard, but soft and will break if given enough force.
These bubbles, when agitated, can be used to clean and sanitize a surface.
Automatic – An automatic scrubber has pads which can be placed within it. The scrubber will then agitate the pads on its own in order to clean.
This can speed up the cleaning process, especially when there are multiple parts which need to be cleaned.
Surface Cleaning – A surface cleaning scrubber is designed for cleaning flat and relatively smooth surfaces. This type of scrubber is not designed to be used on parts which need to be disassembled in order to be cleaned or sanitized.
Wall & Ceiling Cleaning – A wall and ceiling cleaning scrubber is designed for cleaning walls and ceilings. It can also be used for cleaning flat and relatively smooth surfaces.
Rotary – A rotary scrubber looks a lot like a big spinning brush. It cleans using the same basic principle as a carpet cleaner, although the brushes are often harder and better able to handle cleaning chemicals.
Air Scrubber – An air scrubber consists of a large tank of compressed air and a series of nozzles which are able to direct the flow of air. It is able to remove particles from the air and is often used in clean rooms or other areas where the air itself needs to be kept clean.
How Can I Maximize the Performance of My Scrubber?
There are a few ways in which you can maximize the performance of your scrubber:
Choose a suitable type of scrubber for your facility. Certain types of scrubbers are better for specific situations.
Choose a suitable cleaning solution and soak time based on the needs of your equipment and how dirty it is. If you need to sanitize some equipment, make sure to use a cleaner which is strong enough to do so.
Include a rinse step in your cleaning process so that you can remove all of the cleaning solution from the equipment. If you do not, this may result in future contamination of the product.
Regularly clean and sanitize the scrubber itself so that it is able to do its job more effectively.
If using a bulldog or similar type of scrubber, make sure to change out the filter regularly and clean the exterior on a regular basis. If the filter is clogged or the exterior becomes too dirty, this can reduce the airflow in the scrubber and prevent it from working properly.
Does My Facility Need a Scrubber?
There are various laws which can dictate whether or not a particular facility needs a floor scrubber. These laws may differ from state to state, so it is important that you understand the regulations specific to your area.
There are four main types of regulations which will dictate whether or not a floor scrubber is required:
Federal Regulations – The FDA has released a series of rules in which food manufacturers must follow in order to ensure the safety of their product. One of these rules is about cleaning and sanitizing.
In some cases, a floor scrubber may be required in order to meet these regulations.
State Regulations – In addition to federal regulations, individual states may have their own guidelines for food manufacturers. These guidelines often include certain requirements for cleaning and sanitizing which must be met in order to produce safe food products.
Local Regulations – Some counties and local governments have regulations of their own with regard to food manufacturers. These rules may be similar or even more strict than state regulations.
If this is the case, it is likely that a floor scrubber will be required in order to meet these guidelines.
Company Policy – Even if the law does not dictate that a floor scrubber is required, your company may have its own set of guidelines which necessitate their use. For example, your company may choose to go above and beyond when it comes to regulations in order to ensure the best quality of food products.
What Other Equipment Will I Need In Addition To a Scrubber?
There are some pieces of equipment which you may need in addition to your floor scrubber in order to maximize its effectiveness. These pieces of equipment may include:
Water Filters – If your facility is large, it likely uses city water to clean and sanitize the equipment. However, the water from the city can contain impurities which may be small enough to pass through your floor filter.
A water filter can trap these impurities before they reach your floor scrubber or polisher, improving their effectiveness.
Rinsing Hose – After using the spray arm to clean the floor, you need to rinse the equipment off with fresh water. A rinsing hose is necessary for this; they are sold in a variety of lengths and with various attachments.
Grit Filter – As the name implies, a grit filter removes excess sand and grit which washes off during the cleaning process. This keeps the water which passes through your floor scrubber from becoming cloudy.
Cleaning Cartridge – An optional addition which can be added to your floor scrubber is a cleaning cartridge. Like a sand trap in a golf cart, this cartridge collects dirt and debris before it has a chance to clog up the machine.
There are other pieces of equipment you may need depending on the size of your facility and how many machines you plan to use. It is recommended that you speak with a professional at Clean its All before placing your order.
