This is the first option on our list that is truly considered “commercial grade”, this machine isn’t TECHNICALLY a vacuum but it can be a great option for those really deep cleans tile floors need every so often. No matter how well you care for tile flooring it has a tendency to suffer in the grout joints and it takes a really deep clean or acid wash to lift the grime and product build up.
The Oreck Commercial Orbiter Floor Machine can be a great option for professionals looking for that deep clean.
My personal favorites of this model are:
This unit is technically a floor buffer so it is made for dry cleaning of floors and using max power to loosen trapped dirt without scratching. The unit works in an oscillating motion maximize power at 175 RPM and works with brushes or pads that are sold separately from the unit.
The head of the unit has a 13 inch cleaning path so each pass has maximum efficiency and time-saving. While I think that this unit is a bit excessive for being your “daily” cleaner, it would be perfect for cleaning professionals or businesses with lots of tile floors to care for.
This unit is commercial grade in the weight it carries as well. At 24lbs this one is going to be a workout to move around and to operate. I know I would have a hard time maneuvering the powerful oscillation with that weight behind it so it is definitely something to consider before purchasing.
The price tag with this unit is to be expected when browsing commercial floor cleaners. It isn’t going to be economical for everyone but in a professional capacity it would certainly impress your clients! The only thing that surprised me about this unit was that for the price you don’t receive any of the accessories or pads to get you started.
The accessory pads are very reasonably priced, however, most being well under $20. I guess the advantage to this is having the ability to customize the clean you need depending on the floor you are intending to use it with. Obviously, the brush you use for a hardwood, a carpet, a tile and when waxing a floor are all different so it does make this unit highly customizable in that sense.
