A Rubbermaid vacuum cleaner can help you keep your facility clean and your guests healthy. Rubbermaid has made the chore of vacuuming a simpler one. With a variety of bags available, keeping dust and other allergens out of your establishment has never been easier. Whether you choose an upright, backpack, or mechanical style, Rubbermaid has a cleaner that is sure to fit the needs of your establishment.
Backpack Vacuum Cleaners
Backpack commercial vacuum cleaners are canister vacuums that can be strapped to the back for easy cleaning of large areas without putting strain on the back of the operator. Ideal for areas with stairs or tight crevices, these vacuums have many convenient on-board attachments.
Rubbermaid offers them in standard yellow and a black Executive Series design that come in six- or ten-quart capacities. They have 50-foot, heavy duty power cords so you don't have to find more than one outlet when cleaning large areas. Their ergonomic design has padded hip and shoulder straps and low-profile construction for added mobility.
Upright Vacuum Cleaners
Rubbermaid upright vacuum cleaners come in automatic and manual height adjusting versions. Manual units have four position carpet height adjustment. Some have dual motors to pick up the most resistant messes and spills, but still keep the noise-level to a minimum. Intelligent maintenance indicators display when the brush has jammed, when the bag is full, and when a brush has reached the end of its life.
Three-inch wheels make these machines easy to maneuver. The brush is easily removable for cleaning and replacement, and the comfort-grip handle and the easy-empty design helps keep the operator comfortable. No tools are required to put these machines together.
Rubbermaid also offers mechanical sweepers that move noiselessly across tile, low-pile carpet, and wood surfaces. They are best suited for light duty pick-ups when a noisy vacuum may not be ideal. Made of galvanized stainless steel and ABS plastic, these sweepers are virtually indestructible. They will have single- or dual-action bristles, and some designs have rubber blades to pick up semi-liquid messes. Debris trays are easily accessible for dumping and cleaning, and the executive series sweeper has windows that reveal when the tray should be emptied.
Vacuum Cleaner Bags
Your commercial vacuum will require bags and those bags come in a variety of materials, including the following:
- Paper - Paper bags are relatively inexpensive to purchase, but care must be taken when changing these bags, especially if you're allergic to dust and other allergens. Made of highly fibrous paper, these bags will resist tearing, even when slightly over-filled.
- Cloth - Cloth vacuum cleaner bag takes the convenience of paper and gives it the dust-trapping qualities that cloth can provide. For added protection against dust and allergens, use a cloth bag with a paper or HEPA bag.
- HEPA - Bags with HEPA filters serve as a secondary line of defense in trapping allergens that make it through the filter. HEPA (high efficiency particle arrestor) filters have the potential to trap more than 99 percent of particles that other machines would simply release back into the air.
