Elevate facility cleanliness with cleaning robots

A national survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association conducted by Morning Consult shows that improvements to health and sanitation protocols at hotels would have a considerable impact on guests' comfort levels during their stay. Out of a list of 9 criteria, cleanliness was chosen to be the the most important factor when determining their next hotel stay amongst the travelers surveyed, showing the immense importance of facility hygiene standards. Hotels surveyed in the Cleaning Costs and Frequencies Report 2021 Edition reported difficulty having their staff clean all floor surfaces once a day, with most averaging once every other day, and also mentioned the struggles of trying to clean the lobby floor multiple times throughout the day, especially on days with inclement weather. Some challenges specific to hotels was the need to keep noise levels down while conducting cleaning to not disturb guests which was a pain point with typical corded commercial vacuum cleaners.


Ideal models for deployment in hotels and resorts

Most of the hotels, resorts and convention facilities we encouter use a mix of both carpeted and hard floor surfaces so clients opt to get both vacuuming robots and floor scrubbing robots. For vacuuming, Vacuum 40 and Vacuum 50 can handle just about any facility no matter how small or large, with multiple units handling the largest of facilities. Each can handle up to 100,000ft² of carpeted area on a daily basis. We would also break down the recommendations based on your elevator requirements should you need the robots to interface with them.

For hotels and resorts with hard floors, the most commonly used models are the Scrubber 60 and the Scrubber 75, both of which can handle cleaning over 100,000ft² on a daily basis. These are heavy duty models that can withstand heavy foot traffic and dirt and debris tracked in from outdoor areas. Cleaning agents can be added to the robots and automatically dispensed to the correct dosage using the optional workstations. In addition, the millimeter wave LIDAR on these units allow the robots to precisely clean all areas and avoid contact with both employees and guests.

The cost savings of using the cleaning robots are drastic with most clients seeing returns on investment of 12 months or less. Even when deploying in areas with heavily unionized workforces, we've seen high uptake and increased job satisfaction from workers when deploying the cleaning robots as workers compensation and injury rates have been historically high for floor cleaners. Those workers can reallocate their time to easier, yet all the more important detail cleaning work, such as wiping clean any high-contact surfaces such as door knobs, buttons, levers, handrails and bathroom fixtures. Whether the floors are polished concrete, natural stone tiles or epoxy, our floor scrubbers will ensure they're clean and your guests satisfied.

Types of Cleaning Robots

Choosing the right type of cleaning robot.

Cleaning robots can be classified down into two different functions:

Vacuuming robots that sweep and vacuum the floor

Floor scrubbing robots that scrub the floor with water and cleaning agents

Vacuuming Robots

Vacuuming Robots

Vacuum robots cover areas where you would currently use a vacuum cleaner to clean, such as carpeted areas or hard floors that just need an occasional sweeping. You can think of these as oversized Roomba units you would have cleaning your house, except scale them way up to cover commercial and industrial sized buildings. They have substantial heft, they have the suction power of a standard corded vacuum cleaner, and have cleaning paths anywhere from 16 inches all the way up to 28 inches with the use of side brushes. Our largest models can vacuum the equivalent area of an entire football field in just 3 hours, completely autonomously without any human intervention.

Robotic vacuum cleaners are able to navigate on their own and avoid obstacles without ever bumping into a person. The feature commercial grade LIDAR sensors to detect objects hundreds of feet away and some of our models have the capability to interface with elevator systems to handle multiple floors. They can provide you feedback during operation, such as when the dust bag should be emptied, when to replace rollder brushes and side brushes, and also provide you a comprehensive report of all the areas it has been tasked to clean. You can schedule them for operation anytime around the clock and with the optional charge stations, they can go back to their dock whenever their battery runs low. Our vacuuming robots, in order from smallest to largest, include the Phantas, Vacuum 40 and the Vacuum 50.
Floor Scrubber Robots

Floor Scrubbing Robots

The most rudimentary way of cleaning hard floors is with a mop and bucket, and we all know how long that takes. Typical quotes are half an hour to mop and rinse a thousand sqft of space, which means, for example, a large 50,000sqft floor would take a whole shift, if not more, to mop up and clean, not including any scrubbing effort. Autoscrubbers make the job a little easier but typical autoscrubbers in that caliber still end up taking 4 to 5 hours of labor to clean, not including the amount of time needed to fill the clean water tank, empty out the dirty water tank, top off any cleaning chemicals and any other maintenance involved. Based on our existing deployments, it would take one or two full time staff to mop and clean 50,000sqft on a daily basis, or around 300 to 500 hours of labor, with an autoscrubber, that comes down to about 150 hours of labor per month.

How do robotic floor scrubbers do? With the optional workstations, robotic floor scrubbers can go to fill up clean water on its own, drain out dirty water, go back to the workstation to charge up, take elevators if needed to the different floors and scrub away! For that same 50,000sqft example, it takes just 15 hours of labor per month, and that's on the conservative side just to visually inspect the machines to make sure they're in tip top shapce and replacing any consumables. Whereas both the mop and bucket method and the autoscrubber would use 20 to upwards to 50 gallons of water to clean that amount of space, our robotic floor scrubbers have filtration systems to reuse the water, using as little as 5 gallons to clean the same amount of space, how's that for green credits? Our floor scrubbing robots from smallest to largest are the Phantas, Scrubber 50, Scrubber 60 and the Scrubber 75.
