Clarke has been around for over 100 years and their evolution in cleaning equipment has been world renown. Starting with a simple wood sander in the early 1900’s and by 1953 Clarke invented the first automatic scrubber called the Clarke-A-Matic. The 50’s also brought the dearly loved and rugged Floor Maintainer. The Floor Maintainer was so popular by 1971 they had sold their 1 Millionth unit. Then in the 2000’s Clarke brought you the Wash and Rinse carpet extractor line, Rider Scrubbers with Joystick technology, and BOOST the first oscillation technology ever invented.
Clearly Clarke has been a leader and inventor in our cleaning industry. Clarke continues to bring unique pieces of equipment to the table and we would like to highlight some of them along with some simple and rugged cleaning contractor pieces. Clarke’s line of products are simple, effective and affordable.
Spreading dirt around with a standard mop when cleaning hard surfaces just doesn’t cut it these days. It was great for the 70s like bell bottoms were but we have moved past that now. Technology has become so small you now use something the size of an upright vacuum for cleaning small, high-traffic spaces and spills quickly and effectively. Clarke keeps versatility at the forefront, so this unit is also capable of performing on carpeted surfaces as well. You can check out this quick video and click here for a brochure.
