Floor Scrubbing Robot: Am I Ready For Automation

Neo Floor Scrubber Autonomous Cleaner

Floor Scrubbing Robots

are the next generation of industrial floor cleaning. Warehouse managers and overall businesses are always looking at ways they can improve their productivity and efficiency. With the introduction of a floor scrubbing robot, that’s exactly what you’re doing!

Year on year they’re becoming increasingly popular – and it’s easy to see why. They’re capable of performing in various industries and industrial settings. Therefore, they could be the perfect introduction to your processes to help eke out every last bit of available capacity. 

So, could you benefit from one? Do you need an autonomous floor scrubber? If you’re unsure and would like to find out more, you’re in the right place. This post will highlight exactly what they are, how they work, how you can benefit from them and much more.


We’ll cover:


What is a Floor Scrubbing Robot?

Managing the cleaning routine and process at large facilities isn’t easy, right? It requires effort and man-hours to ensure that industrial cleaning equipment is operated throughout the site and that high standards are always attained. However, it doesn’t have to be! So, you can say goodbye to the laborious and tedious task that is site cleaning. 

It’s everybody’s least favourite task, isn’t it? So, why don’t you remove that dread and demotivated attitude towards it and automate the process? You wouldn’t think twice about automating another process if it proved to speed things up and improve your productivity – and your cleaning process should be no different.

Autonomous floor scrubbers are robotic cleaning solutions that take care of cleaning themselves. This allows your team to become more productive and ensures that your operations are cost-effective and streamlined. Surely, that’s a winner all round, right? You can simply leave them to do their thing, while you focus on the areas of the business that need it. 

Fully autonomous industrial cleaning solutions allow you to change the way that you think about cleaning. It sounds silly to speculate that improving the way you clean can have an overall effect on your business success – however, it couldn’t be more true. Think about it, if you operate smarter, you’ll naturally see your performance results pull this way too. 


How Do They Slot Into Your Cleaning Routine?

The introduction of robotic floor scrubbers will completely revolutionise your cleaning routine. They’re capable of operating during periods of downtime or while your operations are still ongoing. Therefore, if you set aside cleaning window periods, you may be able to benefit from eradicating these with the introduction of an autonomous option. 

On larger sites, unfortunately, you’re not going to get very far with the introduction of just one autonomous floor cleaning machine. That’d be like using one walk-behind machine to clean a full site – it’s unrealistic and you’ll be let down with the results. However, they can work in conjunction with each other and each has their own area of the site.

While they can easily work with each other, they can also work well with more traditional methods. For example, you could automate regular cleaning throughout the day to keep on top of the site and maximise your capacity – then at the end of the day or between shifts, you could use more traditional methods to quickly prepare the site for the next shift. 

This regular cleaning during the day will save the time needed to clean the site with more traditional methods. Therefore, even though you’re still using man-hours to clean, it’s much less time than if you were using traditional methods alone. So, they’re perfect to use alongside other autonomous machines and traditional methods too. 


The Main Benefits of A Floor Scrubbing Robot

Improve Productivity

A floor Scrubbing Robot allows your team members to focus on the areas of your business that need it the most – rather than worrying about the standard of cleaning around the site. That way, if your team is actively working on revenue-driving operations for longer periods, you’re naturally going to become a lot more productive. 

In the warehouse and the manufacturing industry, productivity is everything. It’s one of the key metrics that businesses measure the success of their team upon. By ensuring that your productivity is at a maximum, it means you’re firing on all cylinders and giving your business the best chance for success. 


Cost Effectivity 

During cleaning periods, a partial or full downtime period is required. During this time window, the business won’t be making as much (if any) money at all. When you automate your cleaning process, your team members can stay on task for longer and downtime periods will be reduced. Therefore, the longer they’re on task, the more revenue can be driven for the business. 

When working on revenue-driving tasks, your staff costs are a lot more efficient for the business. Whereas, if you’re paying somebody to clean, they’re not directly driving revenue. So, by taking the responsibility of cleaning away from your team members, you’re reducing your costs and ensuring that your business is operating more cost-effectively. 


Future-Proofing the Business

Autonomous floor cleaners are the next generation of industrial floor cleaning. By introducing them, you’re opening up a whole new world of capacity and potential room for further clients. The more processes that you can fully or partially automate, the more potential you’re creating within the business for increased customers and heightened performance. 

By automating processes, you could cut your wage bill. While it’s not ideal for your team members, it makes sense to minimise costs where you can, right? That way, should unforeseen circumstances occur – like a global pandemic – you’re not impacted as much and can guarantee to come through the other side stronger.
