Which one is more cost-effective, a shoe cleaner washing machine, Disposable Shoe Covers, or Sticky Mats?

Nowadays, people pay more attention to the hygiene and health in factories. To prevent and control ground contamination, factory owners usually turn to disposable shoe covers, sticky mats, or shoe cleaner washing machines for help. However, the boot covers and tacky mat don’t turn out to be more cost-effective than the shoe polish machine in the long run. In this article, we will give you a clear comparison and contrast between these 3 solutions.

1. The Similarities among shoe cleaner washing machines, shoe covers, and sticky pads

1) Contamination Control

To some degree, all of them can prevent common viral and bacterial agents from getting into the clean room. With the plastic covers on, contaminants from the bottom of shoes can be completely out of the clean area. Likewise, if you put a sticky mat in front of the crucial area, it can stick the pollutants and stop them from spreading into the controlled area in the factory. However, if you get a shoe polisher machine, then it can wash and sterilize the debris and bacteria on the soles.

2)Wide Application

All of them are ideal for cleanrooms, industrial production areas, research labs, medical offices, construction sites, building entrances, etc. Now, the most common applications are electronic cleanrooms and clean rooms.

3)Easy use and replacement

It is not hard to use the shoe wrap. Just wrap your shoe with the cover, then you can walk into the controlled area. As for the tacky mat, you can just walk onto the mat without changing shoes.
When it comes to the shoe polishing machine, you can walk onto the boot wash station for 3-5 seconds, then your shoes will get clean and dry. If you want better cleaning effects, you can also add some detergent or laundry pods to the sink.

2. The Differences Among Electric Shoe polisher Machines, Shoe Covers, and Sticky Pads

1)Function and Mechanism:

Auto Shoe Polisher:

Its main function is to clean the bottom of a shoe by removing dirt, debris, and contaminants. The automatic boot scrubber typically uses belt brushes or roller-type brushes, water-absorbent pads, and sole cleaner to effectively clean and air dry the shoe soles. The whole wash cycle won’t take more than 5 seconds.

Shoe Wraps:

They can act as a protective barrier for shoes, preventing the transfer of dirt, germs, or other contaminants from the shoe soles to the floor. The plastic covers are wrapped over the shoes and usually used once. They don’t involve any mechanism for cleaning or trapping contaminants.

Adhesive mats:

These mats have many adhesive layers. They can trap dirt, dust, and debris from shoe soles. When someone steps on the mat, the sticky surface captures particles, so they won’t spread to the clean floor.

2)The Cost of Use

If the number of people in the application area is small (a dozen or so people), then the expenditure on disposable covers or sticky dust mats will be less. By contrast, the cost of using a shoe cleaning machine will be higher. In this case, it is better to use shoe covers or sticky dust mats.
If the number of people is too large (dozens or even tens of thousands of people), then the company’s expenditure on ground pollution prevention will be very high. On this occasion, using automatic shoe cleaners can be more cost-effective. All costs include the one-time purchase of the shoe machine cleaner and the cost of replacing the rollers/belt brushes once or twice a year. In contrast with shoe wraps and sticky dust mats, the cost can be reduced by 50%.

3)The Smallest Environmental Impact from shoe cleaner washing machine

The boot covers are plastic and disposable. After use and damage, they are often too difficult to recycle and dispose of effectively. As a result, they cause serious pollution to the environment. Likewise, each time the contaminated layer of the sticky pad is peeled off, a 20-cm ball of contaminated waste is created. Peel-off sticky pads can be secondary waste and generate significant amounts of non-recyclable and unsustainable waste. This waste of resources seriously damages the social image of enterprises and goes against the scientific concept of sustainable development. However, shoe cleaner washing machines can be used with access doors, air shower rooms, and other cleaning devices. After they wash their shoes, users can either drain the waste water manually or automatically. The wastewater always flows into the drainpipe, which has a small impact on the environment.

4)Convenience of Use

Employees must put on and take off the covers when entering and leaving clean areas. Because they are prone to breakage, employees must be careful not to soil or damage them. It is very time-consuming and troublesome to wear. By contrast, it doesn’t take much time to use a sticky dust pad, merely walking over it. In the same way, you can just walk onto the automatic boot cleaner, then it wash shoes and air dry the soles automatically. The whole cleaning process calls for no effort.

5) Cleaning Effect and Service life

Disposable covers for shoes:

They often break accidentally during wear. Most critically, once a shoe cover breaks, it can’t effectively prevent dust particles and microorganisms from entering critical clean areas, thus jeopardizing product and hygiene safety.

Tacky mats:

You can use them over and over again, but the performance is also greatly diminished by excessive wiping. To achieve the optimum 27% efficiency of a tacky mat, it needs to peel off quickly after each use. Moreover, the average size of a peel-off pad is 1m x 1m, which can’t completely remove contaminants from shoe soles and wheels. The average human stride is 0.6m, which means that staff may unknowingly step right over the sticky pads without completely removing the contaminants.

Shoe Polish Machine:

The shoe cleaner washing machine offers significant advantages in terms of cleaning effectiveness and longevity. By adding some white vinegar or baking soda to the sink, 99.9% of contaminants can be removed from the soles of shoes after the user steps onto the cleaning and vacuuming areas. It is better to use warm water less than 40℃. In addition, the automatic boot polisher has a service life of 6 years, so it is a very affordable floor-cleaning tool.

6)Maintenance Frequency:

Electric shoe polisher:

These boot washer machines need regular maintenance, such as refilling cleaning agents and cleaning the water sink and the water-absorbent pads from time to time. They are generally more expensive to buy and maintain compared with boot covers or adhesive mats. With the high quality and low maintenance cost, you can get every penny of it.

Boot covers:

The covers for shoes are designed for one-time use. Users usually treat them as rubbish after each use. The only thing they need to do is buy new ones.

Sticky mats:

These mats come in multiple layers. As the top layer becomes dirty, it can be peeled off to reveal a fresh, clean adhesive layer. When all the layers run out, the mat needs to be replaced entirely.

3. Why Glikon’s shoe cleaner washing machine is the best choice for you?

These are the key differences among shoe polishing machines, disposable covers for shoes, and sticky mats. Shoe sole cleaner machines offer a more thorough cleaning solution for shoe soles, while covers for boots and adhesive mats provide a protective barrier to prevent the transfer of contaminants from shoes to floors. The choice among these 3 options will depend on factors such as the specific cleaning requirements, desired level of cleanliness, frequency of usage, types of shoes, and budget considerations. Glikon’s shoe polisher machine can meet your cleaning and disinfecting needs, save your time and energy during use and maintenance, cause no harm to the environment, and have a long service life with much lower maintenance cost.
