We all appreciate clean working areas and hygienic restrooms in public buildings. In most cases, buildings are being cleaned following a certain schedule every week. But is that the most efficient way and does this get all areas as clean as possible? We think that we can do better! For that, we actually need to know how frequently desks, meeting rooms and restrooms are being used because there is a huge difference in cleaning a room that is used daily only once a week to a room that is used only once every two weeks but is cleaned every week nonetheless. It’s the same with restrooms in an airport for example: If there are no flights the restrooms don’t need to be cleaned over and over, but if a plane has just landed the toilets will be used by a lot of people so cleaning is a must!
It’s key that we don’t stick to strict cleaning patterns and instead focus on smart cleaning – with the help of our wireless radio sensors and digital solutions from our partners. The sensors tell us how often desks and meeting rooms are being used, if soap dispensers have gone empty or how many people have been to the restrooms. Send your cleaning team into a building when cleaning is actually necessary to ensure a hygienic and clean area so that people feel comfortable all the way!
As the COVID-19 pandemic shakes the global economy and disrupts the way we live, work, and conduct business, we believe the role of technology is going to be more pivotal than ever for facing the new challenges in the cleaning and hygiene industry. Complementary IoT solutions and innovative technologies offer great support to our businesses.
Hospitals, airports, railway stations and commercial buildings – all these places have a high number of public restrooms, which are frequently visited. They require a lot of maintenance to keep them clean and working. Additionally, it would be convenient if queues could be controlled to avoid waiting times, paper towels or hand sanitizer could be replenished before these items run out and the air could be kept fresh.
The Internet of Things offers many new possibilities to manage public restrooms and make full use of the space to improve the wellbeing of people.
