Boost your safety, productivity, and quality by keeping your warehouse clean

A clean warehouse promotes higher productivity and operational efficiency, while a dirty one can create slowdowns and delays.

Main benefits of a clean warehouse:

  • Keeping workers safe and healthy. Many workplace injuries (and workers’ compensation claims) are due to slip-and-fall accidents caused by slippery, unclean floors. Dust can also be inhaled, leading to allergies and lung disease. Clean floors minimize these risks and help you achieve OSHA compliance.
  • Making a good impression on visitors and employees. Many warehouses are more than just storage areas; they’re places where suppliers and customers interact. If customers visit your facility, a clean warehouse will go a long way toward making a positive first impression. In addition to that, cleanliness increases employee productivity and helps promote a positive work experience.
  • Ensuring product quality. In some facilities, such as food manufacturing warehouses or electronics distribution centers, dust and grime can impact product quality. Regular cleaning helps you ensure the quality of the parts, equipment, merchandise, and products you’re storing and transporting.

Innovative technologies for exceptional cleaning results

Nilfisk’s floor cleaning equipment features industry-leading technologies that boost productivity and deliver consistent results.

  • EcoFlex™ is a cutting-edge green-cleaning technology that reduces chemical and water use with the touch of a button.
  • DustGuard™ is a must in environments where hazardous dusts are present. Available on industrial floor sweepers, DustGuard suppresses dust at the side brooms, ensuring that everything in the sweeper’s path is swept directly into the hopper.
  • TrackClean™ puts transparency and profitability at your fingertips by giving you 24/7 access to vital operational data on your floor cleaning equipment.
  • MaxAccess™ offers industry-best accessibility to critical components for expedited service and maintenance.

Floor Cleaning Equipment for Warehousing & Distribution Industries

Whatever the size of your warehouse, and whether you clean daily or on a weekly basis, our best-in-class equipment provides you with optimum results you can depend on.

Industrial sweepers

Industrial sweepers improve employee health and minimize slip-and-fall accidents by keeping your floors free of dust and debris.


Advance SW8000

With a 2-meter-wide sweeping path, the ride-on SW8000 cleans large warehouses in a fraction of the time compared to a traditional sweeper. This machine features Clear-View™ design and DustGuard™ technology, along with an optional HEPA filter, for the most advanced dust control available.



Industrial scrubbers

Industrial scrubbers provide fast, efficient floor cleaning to boost safety and reduce risk in facilities without heavy debris.


The SC6000 is a compact ride-on scrubber with a large battery capacity that increases runtime by 30% compared to similar machines. The scrubber features easy maneuverability, enhanced with SmartKey™ technology to ensure operator accountability. EcoFlex™ and DustGuard™ are optional for the highest levels of sustainability and dust control.




Advance SC750

These low-maintenance walk-behind scrubbers provide high productivity with low water and detergent usage. The SC750 and SC800 have an extended 84-minute runtime, and the EcoFlex™ system provides a green cleaning option. Both machines are available in cylindrical versions for industrial applications and employ a hopper to pick up debris, so no pre-sweeping is required.

Combination sweeper-scrubbers

For facilities that require both sweeping and scrubbing, combination machines reduce cleaning and labor costs, while also increasing productivity and efficiency.


Advance CS7010

As the industry’s first hybrid and ePower™ Drive Combination Sweeper–Scrubber, the CS7010 slashes your total cost of ownership via best-in-class battery life, increased fuel economy, and unparalleled efficiency. EcoFlex™ and DustGuard™ options are available.



Industrial vacuums

Industrial vacuums provide essential dust control to minimize slip-and-fall accidents and prevent combustible dust from accumulating and creating an explosion hazard.



The VHS120 is a high-performance wet/dry vacuum cleaner with a small footprint. It features three levels of filtration, including an optional HEPA filter, to keep workers safe and meet OSHA requirements for the capture of very fine dust.




The VHC120 is a compressed air industrial vacuum for use in facilities where electricity is not available or not permitted. Compact and easily maneuverable, this vacuum is ideal for smaller facilities.




The VHC200 is a larger, but still highly maneuverable, compressed air vacuum cleaner that can safely collect wet and dry materials where electricity is not available or not permitted.





Our S3 industrial vacuum is a more advanced machine, featuring innovations including an electronic keypad with LED indicators to monitor performance of the main and HEPA filters.




The GD5 portable battery vacuum cleaner is ideal for use in areas that don’t have electrical hookups, such as stacks in large warehouses. This vacuum can clean for up to 60 minutes, which makes it perfect for cleaning under storage racks; removing dust from overhead ducts, walls and utility pipes; and cleaning up wet or dry spills.



Nilfisk floor cleaning equipment is used in warehouses around the country, from small local facilities to large national distribution centers for Fortune 500 companies. Whatever your cleaning challenge, NIlfisk offers you the best solution to tackle it quickly and effectively.
