I need equipment to assist in the cleaning of: vinyl and rubber tile, slate, marble, stone, aluminum/vinyl mats, a concrete garage floor, elevator thresholds and commercial carpeting with no cushion. Can suggest a source for these items in my area?


Go to and look for distributor member companies in or near your location. Any larger janitorial distributor will have access to the equipment and information you need. Many of the industry trade magazines, including CMM, publish buyers guides and directories each year that will give you manufacturing sources for all of the above.
