Contaminated floors can spread potentially harmful germs and bacteria, according to an article on the McKnights website. Effective cleaning is the best way to keep floors hygienic.

In place of traditional tools, the best bet in keeping floors hygienically clean is to use either a traditional automatic scrubber or what is called an “autovac” floor cleaning system, the article said.

An automatic scrubber applies cleaning solution to floors, scrubs the floors and then vacuums up the solution and contaminants in one pass. 

An autovac is a smaller machine that applies a cleaning solution as it is walked over the floor and a pad behind the machine loosens soils. These floor soils and contaminants, along with the moisture, are then vacuumed up.
