Innovation is at the forefront of all fields, nowadays. The cleaning business is one that has enthusiastically embraced technology improvements, and Wolf-e Robotics, the Romanian manufacturer, has taken a step ahead in this area. You’ve probably seen photographs and videos of cleaning robots in the news or on social media. Floor cleaning robots have already become a part of our daily lives; in an increasingly digital and automated world, they are becoming more widespread in a variety of fields, including professional cleaning.
What is and how does an autonomous floor cleaning robot work?
A professional floor cleaning robot is an autonomous electronic device designed to automatically perform cleaning operations with minimal human supervision. Equipped with sensors, cameras, advanced algorithms, and navigation functions, such a robot is capable of independently moving within a predefined area, detecting obstacles, and efficiently cleaning various types of floors. This means it operates safely, reducing the risk of furniture or wall damage and minimizing the potential for accidents.
Functions include Vacuuming, Sweeping, Wet Mopping, Dry Dust Mopping, Edge and Corner Cleaning – 100%, Optional Disinfection and Air Freshening Kits, Self-recharge with water and power through a docking station, Automatic brush height adjustment based on encountered floor types, all in real-time.
Professional robots outperform commercial robots built for residential cleaning in terms of quality and performance, storage capacity for cleaning products and water, and autonomy. They are outfitted with cutting-edge technologies and features that enable more efficient cleaning management. Industrial variants are more sturdy and resilient in demanding conditions, such as heavily soiled floors or outdoor spaces (especially in parking lots).
Suitable for all types of flooring: natural stone, granite, travertine, ceramic, PVC & vinyl, epoxy, concrete, all types of wood, natural wood, carpet, short or long-pile carpets.
Here are some of the benefits of the floor cleaning equipment offered by Wolf-e Robotics, specializing in floor cleaning
Professional cleaning robots are designed to be efficient in cleaning all types of floors, including hardwood, tiles, carpets, concrete, and more. They can meticulously clean, covering every area of the space, resulting in better cleaning compared to manual methods.
Additionally, with charging stations, robots can self-recharge with water and power and can be integrated with elevator systems. This efficiency translates into reduced cleaning time, allowing companies to allocate human resources more efficiently.
Time Savings, Flexible Scheduling, and Work Streamlining
Robotic cleaning equipment can significantly reduce the time and effort required for regular floor cleaning. They can operate autonomously without constant human supervision, allowing staff to focus on other tasks or, if necessary, they can operate outside of regular hours, ensuring that floors are clean and ready for use the next day. With cleaning capacities ranging from 200 to 400 square meters per hour (Phantas) to 3,000 square meters per hour (Scrubber), the robots also come with optional kits for better customization to meet the needs of each user.
Lower Costs and Improved Floor Cleaning Performance
While the initial investment in professional cleaning robots may be significant, in the long run, it can reduce labor costs and the purchase of manual cleaning equipment. It can also contribute to extending the lifespan of the flooring through consistent and meticulous cleaning.
High quality Outcomes
The autonomous robots clean while collecting data about their working environment. This feature provides an inexhaustible source of information, allowing cleaning operations to be consistent, uniform, and demonstrable. Those using the floor cleaning robot have remote access through a mobile application, enabling task monitoring and data analysis to further optimize cleaning operations and enhance planning.
Another feature of the floor cleaning robots marketed by the Romanian company is the customized coverage capacity for the area that needs maintenance. Thanks to the use of intelligent algorithms, these robots are capable of autonomously calculating the optimal route to completely cover the surface, avoiding repeated or neglected areas. This ensures a uniform and thorough cleaning without the need for additional manual interventions. All models ensure 100% cleaning of edges and corners and automatic brush height adjustment based on the encountered floor types, all in real-time.
All four recommended and marketed autonomous cleaning robot models by Wolf-e Robotics are highly energy-efficient and have minimal water and cleaning agent consumption. Thanks to the precision in water and detergent dosage and resource optimization, these devices enable a reduction in waste and long-term operating costs. For instance, the Scrubber 75 model features a five-stage filtration system that ensures water recycling and reduces water consumption by approximately 80%.
Mitigating the Risk of Contamination
În contextul pandemiei de COVID-19, igiena este la fel de importantă ca oricând. Roboții autonomi de curățenie de la Wolf-e Robotics, cum ar fi Scrubber 50, reduc riscul de contaminare prin faptul că lucrează fără a intra în contact direct cu oamenii. Acest aspect este crucial în locațiile cu trafic intens, unde zilnic trec mii de persoane. Roboții pot fi programați pentru a efectua curățarea în mod regulat, asigurând un mediu sigur pentru toți.
The Scrubber 50 is already being successfully used in high-traffic areas within the National Arena in Bucharest and has been tested in two of the terminals at the Iasi Airport.
Floor Cleaning? Where is a professional floor cleaning robot needed?
When faced with the task of efficiently, swiftly, and effectively cleaning substantial or moderate-sized commercial spaces, the utilization of specialized floor cleaning robots becomes a practical choice. They can be used in hotels, where they can navigate and map rooms, hallways, and common areas, running continuously to keep the floors and carpets clean for guests. In hospitals, autonomous cleaning robots can help achieve very high hygiene standards required in healthcare settings to prevent the spread of infections.
They prove to be highly beneficial in commercial or logistical settings where regular cleaning is indispensable for upholding rigorous hygiene standards. Autonomous robots are capable of cleaning supermarket aisles, even beyond operating hours, ensuring stores remain sanitized for customers. They can efficiently navigate through displays, shelves, and crowded floor areas to rapidly disinfect all surfaces, guaranteeing a clean and hygienic shopping environment.
Furthermore, these devices can be particularly helpful in high-traffic environments such as schools, office buildings, or airports, where cleaning requires a significant amount of time and resources in terms of the staff involved in the operation. In airports, autonomous robots can clean vast terminal floors, galleries, transit areas, and restrooms. These devices can operate around the clock to maintain cleanliness for the high volume of travelers.
Achieve Clean Floors Using Autonomous Robots!
Autonomous robots specialized in floor cleaning represent the future of cleanliness, greatly simplifying this daily task. With continuous advancements in technology, we can expect new improvements and advanced features for even more efficient and thorough cleaning. One of the main challenges will undoubtedly be increasing the autonomy and energy efficiency of the robots, making them increasingly independent. Furthermore, following recent trends, floor cleaning robots could integrate advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence, to enhance their adaptability to the surrounding environment and specific cleaning needs.
Cost savings on labor, the reduced need for frequent replacement of cleaning equipment, and extended lifespans for cleaned surfaces make the robots offered by Wolf-e Robotics a financially savvy option for businesses and organizations. The successful testing of the Scrubber 50 robot at Iasi Airport is just one example of their potential in this field – floor cleanliness.
