An autonomous cleaning machine.

It’s no secret that COVID-19 has highlighted the importance of building hygiene and has raised expectations on facility cleanliness. Unfortunately, it can be challenging for cleaning teams to meet this increased standard of clean, especially when they often work at staffing rates of only 70-75%.* If you’re looking to improve cleaning efficiency without increased labour, autonomous cleaning can help!

The Benefits of Autonomous Cleaning Solutions

  1. Cleaning Efficiency: Keeping floors clean is a big job! In large facilities, it can take several hours to keep floors properly cleaned and maintained. Autonomous cleaning helps free up your cleaning team for more detailed tasks including cleaning and disinfecting door handles, light switches, restroom fixtures and other high-touch surfaces.
  2. Cleaning Effectiveness: Did you know that when operators use standard floor cleaning equipment, they typically miss up to 15% of surfaces?* By following the same path every time, autonomous cleaners eliminate human error and can regularly deliver between 98% and 99.5% cleaning coverage.*
  3. Staff Safety: Autonomous solutions significantly reduce the time staff need to spend in areas where germs may be present. Once a route is programmed into a machine, the machine will clean that same route every time, with no human intervention required. When the cleaning route is completed, or the machine needs assistance, it will notify the operator. Also, offloading repetitive cleaning tasks to autonomous cleaners not only saves time in your cleaning routine, but also decreases the possibility for worker injury, absenteeism and can help make your staff’s jobs more rewarding.
