You may be asking what is the Internet of things and how can it change the cleaning industry. If you want to know, keep reading this blog. IoT (Internet of Things) is the interconnection of everyday objects by embedding computing devices in them, allowing them to send and receive data.
It’s easy to see how the IoT can make our daily lives more convenient, from automated assistants to voice control. It’s important to note, however, that we’re just beginning to see the capabilities of this network. There’s virtually no limit to what the IoT could do to integrate and automate every sector.
One such division is commercial cleaning. By shaping significant associations between people and technology, the IoT can help businesses significantly improve their housekeeping and maintenance outcomes.
In Europe for example, urban communities have presented self-cleaning restrooms where robots periodically clean facilities throughout the day. IoT is being used to advise janitorial staff to replace toilet paper, fill soap dispensers or if a stall needs maintenance.
What’s underpinning all this? In many ways, the IoT is being used to add a technical edge to existing devices and systems. Nowadays, everything is smartwatches, televisions, phones. Soon, our cleaning technology will be as well. Cleaning equipment will tell you when to fill them via your smartwatch or phone. Internet enabled devices will be able to offer super-concentrated Green cleaning chemicals that protect users from being injured. Connected pumps will ensure even more accurate dosing for infection control, and let you know when they need to be maintained.
Soon, commercial kitchen equipment that can clean itself and labour-saving devices that are connected to the Internet will be able to communicate and react to other equipment creating significant impacts on foodservice efficiency and food safety.
