    What is the size of my floor?
    Depending on where you will be using it, you'll need to find an appropriate floor scrubber/polisher for your home or place of business. If you have a small floor area in a home or small office, then a small scrubber/polisher will be fine. For larger businesses, you'll need a commercial size scrubber/polisher machine. Since they are high powered, commercial scrubbers make cleaning the floor much easier, while still being easy to maneuver.
