Top 5 Cleaning Industry Innovations in the Last Few Years
Advancements in cleaning technology have led to new, more efficient ways to clean commercial and office buildings. Cleaner buildings lead to benefits such as improved productivity, health, and cost-effectiveness. The following are some of the notable innovations in the cleaning industry from the last few years.
Internet-Bound Supply Data
Rather than use clipboards and paper lists to supervise the quantity of cleaning supplies, internet systems now allow custodial staff and managers to keep track of the availability of these tools. The information exists electronically and can inform those in charge of the present levels of tissues, towels, soap, and more. The system also tracks analytics that help custodial staff determine what materials to obtain, among other decisions.
The cleaning industry continues to develop new robot technology to increase automated cleaning. For instance, the RA 660 NAVI uses an advanced navigation system, brushes, and a suction cup to scrub and vacuum floors with little guidance from programmers. This robot is also very user-friendly.
Toilet Paper Technology
The Biologic Active Tissue Paper prevents the blockage of plumbing systems by using harmless microorganisms that produce an enzyme that targets the buildup of organic waste. The agents reproduce and increase enzyme production when they touch water. After its function, the paper biodegrades, leaving behind pipes and tanks with less waste and no odor.
The popularity of green cleaning products, tools, and practices continues to grow. Customers are aware of cleaning companies’ services that are effective and safe, but also reduce negative impact to the environment. Green cleaning is now both a government obligation and a requirement for business success.
A hands-free disinfectant dispenser developed by GOJO contains a battery for every refill, eliminating both the propagation of germs and the concern about battery replacements. Plug-in modifications also allow the dispenser to detect whether a use follows hygiene compliance or not, alerts when the disinfectant supply is running empty, and allows for future potential functions.
