Tornado Introduces New Scrubber Calculator
Helps Estimate Equipment Return on Investment

CHICAGO — Tornado® Industries, a leading manufacturer of professional cleaning equipment, has just introduced a new Scrubber Calculator for use by cleaning professionals as well as building owners and managers.

By inputting information such as the type of floor care equipment being used—compact scrubber, small- and medium-sized walk-behind scrubber, or ride-on system—the calculator can be used to estimate labor costs per hour.

“We launched the [Scrubber] calculator as part of our Facebook Summer Like and Learn Campaign,” says Jolynn Kennedy, marketing director for Tornado.

“Many schools and universities devote a great deal of time to floor care in the summer months. This calculator will give them a better idea of how much time certain tasks will take and their [related] costs.”

The Summer Like and Learn campaign is designed to provide cleaning professionals and facility managers—especially those at schools and universities—with information addressing the special cleaning projects typically performed during the summer months.

One of the key features of the calculator is that it can also provide cleaning professionals and building owners/managers with an estimated return on investment (ROI) calculation.

For instance, if a facility were to purchase a floor machine costing approximately $7,000 and used it to clean 50,000 square feet of flooring, the ROI, based on labor savings, could be less than three months.

“This [ROI calculation] is crucial information,” according to Kennedy. “We see so many facilities opt for less expensive floor care equipment not realizing it is actually costing them dearly over time.”
