Maintaining Aging Cleaning Equipment

Maintaining aging cleaning equipment to keep it running properly is vital to your facility. Your equipment is used every day, the hours build up, and aging equipment can start to be a drain on staff time or even a potential hazard if there’s a break-down during use. As cleaning equipment ages, knowing what signs of wear to watch for, and parts to check regularly, can help you keep it up and running. The 14-point checklist by Tennant Equipment will help guide you through maintaining aging cleaning equipment.  How do you know when your equipment is reaching the end of its useful life?

What to look for on your aging cleaning equipment

  • Timing Belts: General wear and tear, cracks, shredding, or slack in the belt.
  • Fuel Systems: Cracks, bulges or wet spots in the fuel hose.
  • Brush Motors and Housing: Debris stuck in the brush or housing, cracked or corroded components.
  • Squeegee Linkage: Water trails on the floor during cleaning.

For the full list of what to look for and why it’s important, download the PDF hereDon’t forget to use the checklist to review typical high-wear maintenance categories on your equipment.
