Abstract

A contamination cleaning device 10 for reducing contamination due to chemical spills and other sources below the floor of a manufacturing facility is disclosed. Suction head 11 includes a pick-up face 12 and an eductor 14. The vacuum is created within the eductor 14 by fluid (e.g. water, air, etc.) moving through the eductor from fluid input line 16 and out fluid line 18. The moving fluid creates the suction that will pick up the contamination in contact with the pick-up face 12. The contamination is sucked through suction hose 20 through the eductor and out with the fluid through fluid out flow line 18.
