Commercial Building, BSC Floor Cleaning

Commercial buildings are part of the first impression for any business, so keeping your floors looking their best is critical. While most facilities perform deep, restorative cleaning on a regular basis, this does not address how the facility looks between restorative cleaning. Did the customer catch the floor looking its best, or right before a restorative clean when it was at its worst? 

Focusing on interim maintenance, which uses less water, detergent, and labor, ultimately resulting in less downtime from the floor, is the best approach. Square Scrub products can address many areas in commercial buildings since they are so versatile, making them a great investment. 

Here are some of the cleaning challenges typically found in commercial settings that Square Scrub can address.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

One of the most popular floors today is Luxury Vinyl, which is not supposed to have a protective finish applied in the field. Texture and embossing on Luxury Vinyl trap soil and detergent residue, resulting in a dirty-looking appearance on the floor. The Doodle Scrub and Doodle Scrub+ (battery powered), with a 3D Scrub pad, digs out and removes build-up in textured floor surfaces.
• Easy to maneuver under and around desks, eliminates the need to bring in an auto scrubber.
• The battery-powered system runs non-stop for 1 1/2 hours on a single charge.


Tile and grout in bathrooms are difficult to maintain, particularly in small, single-occupancy bathrooms where large scrubbers and low-speed machines are difficult to impossible to maneuver. The ability to safely and effectively scrub deep into grout lines to remove soil, detergent residue, and other contaminants is important. In the 2020 Cleaning & Maintenance Management Magazine Facility Benchmarking Survey, over 42% of facility managers listed restrooms as the area that generates the most complaints in their facility!

  • The Square Scrub Pivot and our 3D Blue Tile & Grout Pad on either the Square Scrub Pivot or Doodle Scrub does a great job of safely digging into and removing soil from the grout lines.
  • The Doodle Scrub is ideal for scrubbing small bathrooms and showers due to its 4” x 9” size and ease of operation, which allows it to even scrub behind most toilets!
  • Cleaning the grout lines helps remove odor-causing soils.


Elevators are typically difficult to clean because they are a tight compact space. The Doodle Scrub+ allows you to clean elevators quickly and efficiently.
• No need to locate an outlet to plug the unit in
• Cordless machines eliminate the chance of trip and fall hazards with cords


    The Doodle Scrub+ allows you to restore and maintain the cleanliness of both your stairwell treads and risers.
    • Fire code prevents any outlets from being placed in the stairwell, making corded equipment difficult to use.
    • Since the Doodle Scrub+ is battery powered, they are the perfect solution for this area!
    • The Doodle Scrub+ will do an excellent job of cleaning stair treads and can be used with the Doodle Skate to clean the risers.

    VCT Floors & Large rooms

    VCT flooring are traditionally difficult to maintain, particularly with high traffic areas. It is very difficult, if not impossible, to shut down some areas to chemically strip the floors.

    • The Pivot comes is 20″ amd 28″ models, making large rooms or hallways faster to clean or refinish
    • The Square Scrub Pivot can be used to dry strip the floors, reducing the fumes associated with chemical stripping and virtually eliminating the slip and fall risk
    • The Doodle Scrub can be used to dry-strip smaller areas, such as under lockers that overhang onto the floor and in doorways
    • For hallways that have luxury vinyl, the Pivot and the Doodle Scrub can be used to remove soil from texture and embossing on the floor, returning it to its original look.
    • The Pivot can also clean Tile & Grout floors
