When Friedrich Nietzsche asserted that “what separates two people most profoundly is a different sense and degree of cleanliness,” he couldn’t have known how prophetic his words would be. For instead of people, the same can be said of restaurants and bars today. With covid, customers have a completely different perception of clean and the need for places to be clean. Degree of cleanliness, without question, is of the ultimate importance. And following that train of thought, were Nietzsche alive today and familiar with modern cleaning techniques, he might even declare that the mop is dead, as there are clearly better alternatives. And that is where the MAIN M3 Micro Scrubber comes in.

Mechanical floor scrubbing is measurably more effective than slinging the traditional mop around. For in an otherwise well-run establishment, one of the more significant potential threats to cleanliness comes from cross-contamination: the process by which bacteria or other microorganisms are unintentionally transferred from one place to another. And when it comes to cleaning floors, the primary culprit of that is the mop and bucket.

For as the proverb goes, “Dirty water does not wash clean.” In a worst-case scenario, if you are using the same mop in the kitchen, the bathroom and the dining area, you are essentially taking grease from the kitchen and bacteria from the bathroom and spreading it everywhere. At best, cotton string mops harbor potentially harmful germs and bacteria and develop musty malodors after recurring uses. And mop heads can contain more than eight million bacteria per 100 square centimeters! Anyone that has used a mop probably already understands this at a more common sense, fundamental level. The simple fact is, mop water is dirty.

Fortunately, the MAIN M3 micro scrubber is a plug-and-play solution to the problem of dirty mopping. As a compact, yet robust mechanical floor scrubber, the M3 has separate clean-water and waste-water tanks to safeguard against cross-contamination. It is also much faster than a mop (up to 10,000 sq ft/hr) so employees are more apt to clean. And let’s not forget the customer’s perception of cleanliness, which will be higher using a walk-behind micro scrubber over an ordinary mop. Best of all, that “idea” of cleanliness is more than mere perception; with the increased quantity and quality of cleaning, your floors will actually be much cleaner! So, consider the customer experience and don’t limit your business by using “dead” technology. Give the M3 a whirl and see for yourself what a difference proper equipment can make.
