Businesses have been using manually operated machine scrubbers for a long time. According to the International Custodial Advisors Network (ICAN), a custodian can clean 310m² an hour of space per hour.
A robotic alternative would clean a space of 1,200m² to 4,000m² in one hour with 2.5 to 6 hour single charge; this is the equivalent of 4-13 staff members. Other benefits of robotic cleaners are 70% water saving and automatic reporting on achieved tasks as well as being dispatched on specific routes on specific times and self-charging.
Cleaning robots are a coveted solution for facility managers for its significant cost saving and ability to be deployed at any space.
