How to select the right squeegee blades for your t5
When selecting the right squeegee blades for your t5, consider the following:
- The size of your floor.
- The type of flooring you will be cleaning.
- The type of cleaning you will be doing (wet mopping or dry sweeping).
- The amount of water pressure you have available (low-pressure or high-pressure).
- And finally, how much debris is in your water (not a lot or quite a lot).
If you leak, you may need to replace the gasket and retighten the bolts if you have a small space that does not need much cleaning; a small squeegee blade will be more than sufficient. If you have a large space or are doing heavy cleaning, consider getting a larger squeegee blade with more surface area.
The right squeegee blades will help keep your floors clean and dry.
The right squeegee blades will help keep your floors clean and dry. In the age of disposable products, however, finding a quality squeegee blade that will last long enough to pay for itself can be difficult. This is especially true if you use a large floor machine like a commercial wet mop or steam cleaner.
To begin with, there are many different materials used in squeegee blades today. Some are more durable than others—but all have one thing in common: they’re designed for certain tasks. For example, if you normally use hard surfaces like linoleum or vinyl floors, choose a rubber material that’s durable enough for the job (but not too strong). If you’re working on carpeted areas with lots of traffic,, though, or even cleaning up after pets, steel blades may be more appropriate because their durability will hold up better under these conditions.
Finally, keep in mind that because every project has different needs (and budgets), there is no single answer when to choosing which blade type/size combination might work best for each situation!
