Technology & Innovation

Technology continues to infiltrate every aspect of daily life, providing an array of benefits specific to each users’ unique requirements. Cleaning technology is no different, with a wide array of options available, particularly in the robotics space. With such choice available, cleaning technology can be utilised to great effect in a vast selection of environments and industries.

UVC Robots

The World Health Organisation has stated that SARS-CoV-2 can persist on surfaces for periods of time ranging from a few hours to several days. In addition, reports from the CDC have indicated that floors are an often overlooked source of pathogens that can spread throughout facilities.

We implement a range of UVC robots that combine floor scrubbing with UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation) technology to deliver unprecedented cleaning and hygiene standards for our customers.

Backed by decades of supporting studies, UVC is a widely used germicidal solution. Exposure to UVC light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, destroying their ability to multiply and cause disease.

By combining floor scrubbing and UV radiation, we provide our customers with assurance of the highest rates of disinfection and sanitisation.

Air Purification – Luxibel

Combining our exceptional skills and expertise, Mitie has partnered with Luxibel, a global provider of UVC Disinfection Systems, to introduce cutting-edge air cleansing technology to support customers and enhance the safety assurance in properties.

Harmful bacteria, viruses and toxic gases are just some of the agents known to circulate indoors. But in offices, airports, shopping centres and public and private spaces, building users can breathe easy with Mitie’s air disinfection technology.

The Luxibel UVC (Ultraviolet) purification lamp uses the latest technology to blitz a number of known airborne and surface contaminants, ensuring indoor air and surfaces are extensively disinfected, fresh and clean, maintaining peace of mind for colleagues, customers and guests alike.

This chemical-free innovation can be installed as a wall-mounted unit, concealed within existing vents or even disguised as a ceiling tile.

They help protect against airborne pathogens, creating a safer and more beneficial indoor environment with the power of light.

Sensors

By implementing an array sensors within our comprehensive cleaning solution, we’re able to use data to drive our cleaning delivery and improve hygiene standards throughout our customers’ businesses.

Our system uses real-time data to help our Cleaning Operatives work smarter, target urgent cleaning requirements, boost hygiene and quality, and reduce waste – all while maximising efficiency and creating safer environments.

There are many benefits to implementing demand-led cleaning within your business. These include avoiding dispenser run-out by tracking real-time data on consumption levels and visitor numbers, eliminating over-and-under cleaning by shifting from static cleaning rounds to needs-based work, creating extra time for Cleaning Operatives that can be dedicated to other cleaning and hygiene related tasks, improving reporting, analytics and KPI tracking for contract fulfilment, and reducing consumable waste by knowing exactly where and when refills are required or how much is required for the cleaning of a particular area.

Accident Mitigation

Slips, trips and falls remain the biggest causes of accidents, with a substantial human and financial cost for businesses.

Our industry leading methodology is designed to make your existing floors safer, cleaner and more hygienic whilst reducing accidents and claims by more than 50%, saving your business a fortune in potential insurance claims and pay-outs.

By choosing Mitie’s services, you no longer need to decide between aesthetics and safety when it comes to the flooring of your premises; we can treat shiny stone and tiled floors to make them safe even when wet.

All of our slip prevention services are pendulum tested, the same method used by the HSE and slip accident court cases to determine whether a floor is safe, assuring you that your floors are as safe as possible and equipping you with evidence to defend any potential claims.

Innovation Hub

As part of Mitie’s continued commitment to excellence in cleaning, work has begun on an industry-leading ‘Innovation Hub’ based at a brand-new premises in Birmingham.

The purpose of this experience will be to showcase Mitie Cleaning Services, the excellence of our people and processes, our commitment to innovation, and how our wide range of cleaning services deliver assurances to our customers that their spaces are clean, safe and sanitised.

In order to properly demonstrate Mitie’s excellence in cleaning, the Innovation Hub will feature spaces dedicated to robotics and bringing the science of cleaning to life, alongside a practical demonstration of the smart sensors we use to optimise our service delivery, and our range of Citrox products that are exclusive to Mitie in the facilities management sector.

In addition, the Innovation Hub will also provide some insight on the Plan Zero Initiative and our pledge to reach net-zero carbon by 2025.

We look forward to sharing this new experience with you in the second-half of 2021.
