How to use a walk-behind scrubber?

A walk-behind scrubber is a highly effective cleaning tool. With proper usage, it can provide a thorough deep cleaning that will last for years to come. Here are the steps to properly set up and use your walk-behind i mop:

Starting the machine

Keep in mind the following before your start using your walk-behind sweeper:

  • Check that the battery is charged.
  • Check that the water tank is full.
  • Check that the detergent tank is complete; depending on how dirty your floor is, pour in more if needed.
  • Look over your brushes to make sure they are in good condition. If one has become worn or broken, you can replace it by unscrewing it from its mount and then screwing on another brush with different bristles that will better suit your floors as needed.
  • Make sure your floor pad is in good condition; if it’s torn or damaged, you’ll need to replace it before using the machine again!

How to check the batteries?

The first thing you will want to do is check the battery level. To do this, start by pressing the On/Off button once to turn it off if it is already on and open up the hood of your walk-behind scrubber. You should see a red light when the hood is opened, which indicates that there are batteries in use and they are fully charged.

However, if there is no red light, then there are no batteries in use, or they still need to be fully charged, so make sure you have some before starting! If you do have some, then go ahead and replace them with new ones just as soon as possible so that your machine can be used properly without any problems whatsoever!

Scrubbing the floor and dispensing detergent

Now that you’re ready to scrub, it’s time to get down and dirty. First of all, make sure that you have enough detergent in your machine. The amount depends on what type of flooring you are cleaning. If it’s filthy, you may need more than usual; less will do the trick if it’s not as messy.

Secondly, ensure that there is enough water in your machine so that there are enough suds for effective cleaning. Lastly, ensure that whatever type of detergent you use is compatible with your flooring!

Picking up dirty water

With a squeegee attached to your walk-behind i mop, you need to move the squeegee in front of and behind the machine. As it moves through the water, it will collect any dirt and debris removed from your flooring.

If you do not have a squeegee on board with your machine, there are other options for getting rid of dirty water. You can use a hose connected at the bottom of your device, where you would typically attach a squeegee. 

Emptying dirty water tank

To empty the dirty water tank, you’ll want to open the drain valve on the bottom of your machine. Then, lift off your machine’s body and take out its dirty water tank. Tip any remaining liquid into a bucket or drain and dispose of it appropriately. 

Cleaning a dirty water tank is straightforward: give it a quick rinse with soap and warm water, or put it through an automatic wash cycle in your dishwasher before replacing it.


Walk-behind scrubbers are a great way to improve the cleanliness of your floors. They are easy to use and have many benefits. With proper care and maintenance, your walk-behind scrubber will last for years and provide excellent service.
