Innovative Tools

Innovative ToolsWhether you are managing facilities in Healthcare, Education, Manufacturing, Class-A Office, or Food Processing, taking advantage of innovative cleaning tools and processes can save substantial time and money. While some innovation has a lessor impact, some can fundamentally change the way facility managers and contract cleaners perform day-to-day activities. From seeking out “green” alternatives to advance sustainability initiatives to utilizing advancements in equipment and technology, it can really pay off to understand the latest advancements in the industry.  A couple worth mentioning are outlined below.

1. High-Tech Management Tools

Among the hottest trends in cleaning tech are data-driven tools that provide managers online dashboards with real-time information about the status of dispensers of soap, paper, and hand towels. Increasing standards in hygiene make it more important than ever for manager to stay on top of supplies and cleaning protocols.

One example of this high-tech solution is the Onvation™ Smart Restroom Management System, created by Kimberly-Clark and Gojo/Purell. Users easily monitor restrooms, keep track of supplies and increase productivity & customer satisfaction, all through their smart phone or computer. The system is being effectively used in high-traffic environments to:
  • Reduce restroom-related complaints and work orders by up to 75%
  • Reduce consumable waste by up to 80%
  • Reduce waste and boost sustainability by minimizing the amount of product discarded prematurely to avoid run outs
A similar system, KOLO, is supported by Georgia-Pacific. The KOLO™ Smart Monitoring System is an open platform enabling Georgia-Pacific PRO to deliver the most complete connected restroom. This platform integrates data from GP PRO dispensers and 3rd party devices as well as from customer feedback and traffic management systems, all of which drives data-driven cleaning.

2. Electrostatic Sprayers

Electrostatic technology is not new to the agriculture or automotive industry but is relatively new to the cleaning industry. This technology allows users to clean more thoroughly and efficiently by allowing them to cover more space, using less product, in less time.

Electrostatic Sprayers

How does it work? This type of sprayer gives your disinfectant solution a positive electric charge that causes the droplets to be attracted to neutrally charged surfaces like desks and walls, and to repel each other, leading to an even distribution over surfaces that prevents dripping. After a few minutes, the disinfectant kills the germs and the liquid evaporates. There's no need to wipe the surfaces down manually--just spray and go. A single person using one of the sprayers could sanitize an average-size 100-person office in about 10 minutes. In fact, research indicates that electrostatic application is 8 times more effective than using an uncharged sprayer.

The Victory Professional Cordless Electrostatic Sprayer allows the user hours of spraying time without the hassle of dragging a cord. In addition, it is designed to save time and labor, spray less liquid, and cover more surfaces. Victory Sprayers’ patented technology provides an electrical charge to solutions, allowing them to wrap conductive surfaces with an effective and even coverage. Double-charged particles envelope all conductive surfaces – shadowed, vertical and underneath.
