High Potential and Promising Results of Autonomous Technology in Commercial Janitorial Services

Contributed by Ed Turbeville, National Sales Executive

 “The great growling engine of change – technology.” – Alvin Toffler


In a fast-paced and competitive industry, competent and successful janitorial companies are investing in technology to support their objectives of maintaining clean, safe, healthy, and sanitized facilities for their customers. The use of technology in day-to-day janitorial and maintenance protocols require these services providers to establish results-oriented partnerships with companies that offer autonomous technology solutions. As a result, janitorial partners ensure safe and optimized operations for their customers along with the benefit of better timelines.

All customers prioritizes integrity, reliability, operational efficiency, cost effectiveness, and other key benefits when they outsource their cleaning and maintenance functions to a professional service provider. From the service provider’s perspective, on the other hand, it is imperative to establish a framework with specific operations and audit system that ensure consistent results with enhanced, technology supported cleaning and maintenance protocols. Similar to most other industries, the integration of technology in day-to-day operations has transformed the commercial janitorial services. While the demand for outsourced partners is growing over the years, leading service providers are required to focus on implementing continuous improvement strategies using innovative technological solutions. Some of the most effective autonomous technology for the janitorial industry that offer enhanced efficiency, reliability, and mobility in their day-to-day operations include:

  • Autonomous Sweeping using sweeping and scrubbing robots
  • Autonomous Scrubbing with heavy-duty floor scrubbers
  • Autonomous Disinfecting with robots featuring ADS module (Airborne Decontamination of Surfaces)

At Diversified Maintenance, autonomous technology is integrated into the core operations of the Company as it unlocks the full potential of the workforce while delivering an enhanced customer-centric experience with better streamlined processes. The Company uses high-quality and fully autonomous sweeper and scrubber robots to provide extraordinary results without human interaction. Similarly, the AI-powered heavy duty autonomous floor scrubber is designed for robust self-driving cleaning for large open spaces. It also has unmatched safety and automation navigation capabilities through its BrainOS robotic platform. Additionally, the mid-size autonomous disinfecting robots utilize touchless sterilization innovation that dispenses an EPA-registered all-natural, non-toxic disinfecting solution mist.
