Making Cleaning More Sustainable

The cleaning industry has been through significant changes since we last attended The Cleaning Show, not least the accelerating trend towards sustainability. Our promotion of sustainable cleaning and environmental awareness goes back even further. And although it’s been given many names since 1923 (when our business was founded), sustainability has always been at our core. Our track record is demonstrated through leadership with the Carbon Disclosure Project, assistance with the Alliance for Water Stewardship and the Asean Corporate Sustainability Award, among many other achievements.


Our aim is to help create a healthier and safer world for everyone. We published our latest Annual Sustainability Report at the end of 2018.

At the same time, we announced a new “Facilitators for Life” strategy and goals. This new approach will help ensure we address key environmental, social and technological opportunities, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, engaging in ethical business practices and decreasing our packaging footprint by 2025.

Achieving sustainable cleaning also underpins our product offerings. These should all help customers to save water, conserve energy, prevent waste, and increase safety. Our building care ranges, for example, are available as ultra-concentrates for use with dosing and dilution control platforms that enable safe, simple and consistent high-performance cleaning while minimising wastage, packaging and chemical miles. Our TASKI floorcare machines – scrubber driers, rotary disc machines and vacuum cleaners – offer class-leading performance in terms of lower energy, water and product consumption. Innovations such as the 100% plant-based SURE range provide our customers with further choices to demonstrate the highest levels of environmental responsibility.

In addition to greater awareness of sustainability issues across the board, few could have imagined a decade ago how technology-driven innovations would affect the industry and the daily lives of those working in it. As a global leader we have been at the forefront of this trend with innovations including its advanced TASKI swingobot robotic floorcare range and Internet of Clean services such as SmartView task auditing and IntelliTrail machine management. These utilise advanced technologies in new ways to support the aims and objectives of cleaning teams to collaborate and work smarter, more productively and more sustainably while reducing costs, improving outcomes and protecting brands.

We have a unique ability to support cleaning teams with a complete set of products, tools, machines and services for every aspect of their cleaning operation. This means we can work with customers to devise, configure and implement a fully-integrated solution that is fine-tuned to their business and operational requirements and delivers enhanced performance and value. The concept of a total solution from a single vendor is not new but it does require that suppliers adapt to meet the business and regulatory pressures and take advantage of new technologies. As a leading innovator across the industry, we introduce new products to maintain our full-service capabilities. In the past year alone we have added, among others, the Twister by Diversey diamond-based scrubber drier pads and the Moonbeam3TM Disinfection Technology© UV-light disinfection system to our comprehensive portfolio.

Something that was revolutionary just a few years ago can quickly become commonplace. In the past, this was true of ultra-microfibre and ultra-concentrates but today these are widely used by cleaning teams as a matter of course. Soon, innovations such as robotic cleaning, the Internet of Clean and UV-light disinfection will also become routine. You can see many of our latest innovations and learn more about how we can help you meet your sustainability objectives on Stand C37 at The Cleaning Show, Excel London, 21-23 March.

Helping Service Providers Enhance Their Bids

In a previous post, we suggested that sourcing products, tools, machines and services from a single supplier can help deliver excellent results through an integrated solution which offers innovation, improved sustainability and better value to the customer. These benefits are often mirrored for the cleaning team, building services contractor or FM provider who is delivering the service because they help to make operations more profitable and easy to manage and deliver. In turn, this can make it easier for those service providers to make a compelling case when they tender or bid for new contracts.

As a cleaning operation grows it will often comprise more and more different components. But two cleaning operations are rarely the same. Nowadays, many contracts are configured with each component carefully chosen to deliver specific advantages or benefits for the customer and/or the service provider. These choices – and the priorities that drive them – will vary from customer to customer, contract to contract. Under these circumstances, choosing products from a single supplier offers a number of benefits.

First, because it offers a broad range, the supplier is likely to be an industry leader. They will have the products, resources, expertise, experience and market knowledge to work closely with the service provider. This is more than a customer-supplier relationship – the best outcomes are achieved when the two businesses work together in partnership to deliver an enhanced solution to the end-user organisation. 

Second, contract configuration and procurement processes are simpler because there are fewer suppliers with whom to meet and negotiate. Suppliers with a wider choice of products will be able to advise on the best products and combinations to meet the ultimate business requirement. Many service providers under-estimate the time and resources that can be involved with setting up the cleaning component of major contracts.

Third, the chosen solution is less complex. Manufacturers design their products to work together. The resulting cleaning processes are simpler which leads to lower burdens associated with supply chain, implementation (eg roll-out or training), compliance, documentation, training and support. All of this saves the service provider time and money.

Fourth, integrated processes enable higher standards that are more consistent. This leads to higher levels of performance and compliance. This is demonstrable when auditing facilities or metrics from modern equipment are available as part of the solution. 

Fifth, the business relationship is simpler. Working with one supplier usually means a single point of contact at all stages of the contract. Communications channels are shorter and quicker should any issues arise. Support is usually simplified: there is less risk of being passed from one supplier to another when the cause of an underlying issue is unclear. Instead, the integrated supplier offers a single point of resolution. Many relationships will also involve the integration of cross-company functions such as account management, training and technical support so that customers perceive a single service provider. 

These are all good reasons but what about the products on offer? Cleaning suppliers that want to offer a total solution will need a set of products that cover the majority – if not all – of the major components of an operation. That is a good start but to enable true flexibility the supplier should offer choices from within its own portfolio.

A good example of this is floorcare where options include traditional mopping products, reusable and disposable microfibre, or various types of machine equipped with different pads or brushes. Each can offer benefits in particular scenarios. Another example is the choice between multipurpose formulations and separate products for each task and whether these will be concentrates or conventional formulations. Beyond this, the choice can be between innovations with new benefits or traditional products with a proven track record. The list goes on but only those suppliers who offer genuine choices will be able to support service providers who want to configure and fine-tune their operations to deliver maximum business, operational and cost benefits. Innovation is a key requirement in many cleaning operations because it supports other objectives such as improving results or reducing costs.

Our approach at Diversey is to introduce innovations and unique technologies across our portfolio to ensure customers can benefit from new ways of working while still dealing with a single market-leading supplier. In this way, we and our service provider customers can create highly focused solutions by choosing the very best products for the specific application and contract.

We will be highlighting how we work with cleaning teams, building service contractor and FM providers to help them configure innovative solutions and win new business at The Cleaning Show this week in London. Visit us on Stand C37.

Remote Guidance for Cleaning Teams

Remote Guidance is a new augmented reality tool that allows customers to meet with a Diversey support technician virtually and in real-time from any location. Designed to expand Diversey’s best-in-class customer service, it is an iOS- and Android-based virtual reality tool that improves product troubleshooting beyond face-to-face phone calls and video chats. Users can identify problems and assess solutions quickly through interactive real-time experiences. Remote Guidance helps prevent equipment shutdowns, improve end-user training, promote faster staff introductions, and provide distributor sales representatives with application expertise anytime and anywhere needed.

With Remote Guidance, customers can meet and speak with a Diversey support technician virtually, in real time, from any location. They can show them the issue using live video links or by sending images captured on their own smartphone or tablet. The system automatically blends local and remote collaborative video streams to give and receive interactive help anywhere instantly.

Diversey’s technical customer support staff can assess the issue remotely and walk the user through a solution using mixed reality technology incorporating voice and visual interaction. This helps users implement solutions and get back to work quickly with reduced costly downtime. If a technician does need to make a site visit, the information provided during the virtual interaction helps ensure they understand the problem before they arrive and bring any necessary parts. This enhances their ability to provide the correct solution quickly and easily during the first visit with less time spent on site.

No registration is required for Remote Guidance which means users have fast, free and easy access to support and troubleshooting.

Remote Guidance is part of Diversey’s Internet of Clean platform. This utilises Internet of Things technology to monitor equipment, machines and operations remotely and in real-time through sensor-generated data. Through data science and analytics, this allows for complete insight into operations, dosing, compliance and machine performance and transforms service models from reactive to proactive and predictive. Diversey partners with valued customers to drive operational excellence and cost sustainability across various industry sectors.

Remote Guidance has been nominated for the Innovation Awards at The Cleaning Show in London. It was also nominated for the Innovation Awards and the ISSA Show North America in 2018. You can find out more on Stand C37 at The Cleaning Show, this week in London.

Cleaning and The Internet of Things

We live in an interconnected world where anyone and anything can exchange information in real time and increasingly vast amounts. One of the clearest examples of this is the Internet of Things – the myriad of gadgets that communicate with each other over “the cloud”. According to global research analyst Gartner, around 20 billion such devices – excluding tablets and smartphones – will be in use by 2020 – almost three devices for every human alive. Some estimates suggest even more. Gartner also predicts that around two thirds of enterprises – doubling the total in just three years – will have adopted IoT products by 2020. By then the global value of the IoT will be over $7 trillion according to some reports.

While some of this technology is employed in what many consider to be trivial tasks there are many useful applications. Amazon, for example, offers small wireless gadgets that attach to home appliances such as washing machines and dishwashers. Just a single tap on the device’s button issues a request via a smartphone or home network to the company’s systems and automatically generates an order for replacement detergents which are then delivered the next day. The user has no more interaction than that, yet the system works seamlessly to ensure they never run out of product. Some domestic appliance manufacturers have gone further and embedded internet connectivity into their machines. This allows users to check, control and manage their washing machines and dishwashers remotely using apps on their smartphone or from their PC or tablet.

Similar concepts are now emerging in the professional cleaning sector and Diversey calls this the Internet of Clean. This provides a framework that remotely monitors equipment, machines, and operations through sensor-generated data. Analysing this data enables insight into cleaning operations, dosing, compliance and machine performance.

We’ll be featuring The Internet of Clean as one of our Top Ten products at The Cleaning Show (21-23/3 London).

Businesses are investing heavily in the IoT to integrate new and existing equipment and technologies with software applications. The amount of information that can be generated can be bewildering but used wisely it offers new levels of oversight and control. The aim is to produce business-class solutions that are robust and secure while delivering the insight and performance gains that justify the investment. There are already many examples across food service and related sectors:

Remote Dishwash & Laundry Monitoring: operators can monitor dishwashing and laundry machines to see information such as the number of cycles completed, temperatures, volumes cleaned, product levels and the amount of water and energy used. They have greater control to improve results and reduce costs while maintaining food hygiene and safety compliance. Such systems have shown, for example, that around four out of five dishwashing processes use too much fill and rinse water and that most machines are 10-15 per cent off spec in rinse temperature. Insight like this allows operators to remodel their processes to reduce the associated wastage.

Information is automatically and instantaneously analysed so that status reports and alarms are shown immediately on an interactive user dashboard. This provides a clear and intuitive view of every connected dishwashing machine, even at multiple locations. Such systems can send alerts to authorised recipients to enable rapid response. This might include, for example, when energy, water or detergent usage exceeds predetermined limits. Operators can then proactively predict and prevent unexpected downtime to maximise machine uptime, performance and efficiency. Information required to resolve issues can be provided in the form of video attachments and contextual content that also acts as training material.

Hand Hygiene Compliance Monitoring: the latest hand wash dispensers monitor the number of uses and the amount of product consumed. When connected to the Internet of Clean they allow managers to monitor and manage multiple units across several sites simultaneously, reducing workloads while enhancing efficiency. Operators have a clearer understanding of utilisation and hand hygiene compliance. This is particularly important in food service and healthcare settings where the link between good hand hygiene, food safety and patient safety is critical. Smart dispensers can reveal under- or over-usage that helps operators understand users’ behaviour and intervene with appropriate remedies armed with accurate information. These dispensers also issue alerts when product or battery levels get too low so that supervisors can respond proactively to maintain availability.

Cleaning & Food Safety Audits: devices including smartphones are used by teams to complete audits, follow instructions, confirm actions and provide feedback using text, images and video. Managers can see the status of any operation, where tasks have yet to be completed, and overall performance levels. They can assess success and compliance with service level agreements, provide evidence to customers and streamline their operations to improve productivity and profitability.

Food Waste Monitoring: kitchen staff place food waste in a bin mounted on scales and confirm information on a connected touchscreen. The system provides instant feedback on the amount and type of waste being generated. Through Internet of Clean connections, managers can monitor individual sites and aggregate information from multiple locations to analyse daily and weekly trends. With up to 20 per cent of food purchased in kitchens ending up in waste bins the insight provided by these systems can help food service operators understand and reduce their waste by up to half and cut costs by up to eight per cent.

Optimising Resources: the information available through Internet of Clean technologies can help managers to benchmark and understand staff behaviour so that they can deploy teams more effectively and productively. With labour costs representing by far the biggest element of any cleaning operation this can yield significant benefits. Teams can do more in the same time and focus on tasks that make the biggest difference to customers.

Augmented Reality: feature-rich interactive content is delivered direct to the user to complement conventional operating, maintenance and training guides. This not only promotes greater efficiency but reduces the need for time-consuming interventions to deal with routine issues.

These and other innovations are accessed over the Internet of Clean using smartphones, tablets and desktops. Users have a digital portal and intuitive dashboards where they can review data and trends. This quantifiable information offers valuable, real-time insight into their operations, delivered in easy-to-interpret KPIs. Operators can improve their qualitative standards while lowering the cost of cleaning and hygiene programmes. In the majority of cases the services can be configured to send a text or email alert when predetermined conditions arise. This means that supervisors and managers can take action before an issue impacts on the customer or end user.

As with any innovation the real benefits of the Internet of Things can only be realised when the investment delivers a justifiable and quantifiable return in a meaningful timeframe. The return can be relatively easy to justify and accrues quickly when remote diagnostic and management prevents unexpected equipment outages or reduces the need for expensive on-site intervention. However, innovation and improvements to customer service and the resulting increase in loyalty or reputation may be somewhat harder to quantify in hard cash terms despite adding value.

The cleaning industry is starting its own journey with the Internet of Clean. The future is as hard to predict as ever but there is little doubt that these – and as yet unforeseen innovations – will enable operators to improve service, productivity, compliance, operational performance, and sustainability.

Complete Cleaning Solutions

Cleaning teams continue to face incredible pressure to deliver excellent results while introducing innovations, adding value, improving productivity and promoting sustainability without adding to costs. That can be a difficult set of criteria to achieve but we offer support with our unique ability to provide a complete set of products, tools, machines and services for every aspect of a customer’s cleaning operation from a single source.

As a market leader, we work with customers to devise, configure and implement fully-integrated solutions that are fine-tuned to business and operational requirements and deliver enhanced performance and value. The concept of a total solution from a single vendor is not new but it does require that suppliers adapt to business and regulatory pressures and take advantage of new technologies.

Sourcing from a single supplier offers a number of benefits for customers. Contract configuration and procurement processes are simpler because there fewer suppliers with whom to meet and negotiate. While this is self-evident many customers under-estimate the time and resources that can be involved with setting up major contracts.

Similar benefits arise during contract implementation because areas such as supply chains, training and compliance are less complex when dealing with fewer suppliers. While this can promote higher standards and greater consistency with reduced risk of incorrect deliveries it also means shorter and quicker communications channels should any issues arise. This is also the reason why support is usually simplified: there is less risk of being passed from one supplier to another when the underlying issue is unclear. Instead, the integrated supplier offers a single point of contact.

For their part, by offering an integrated solution selected from a wide set of products, suppliers can ensure everything is designed and configured to work together seamlessly and offer the maximum benefit in terms of performance, innovation, cost-control or any other criteria the customer specifies. We commit considerable investment and resources to developing and supporting our products. With approximately 8,600 employees across 175 countries and 180 dedicated researchers in 20 advanced facilities, we offer unrivalled documentation, technical support, applications expertise and insight that helps our customers achieve the best possible outcomes.

Integration is about more than simply making existing products work with one another. Innovation is a key requirement in many cleaning operations because it can support other objectives such as improving results or reducing costs. Our approach is to introduce innovations and unique technologies across our portfolio to ensure customers can benefit from new ways of working while still dealing with a single market-leading supplier. In this way we and our customers can create highly focused solutions by choosing the very best products for the specific application and contract. The alternative, of customers selecting different products from multiple suppliers, can lead to the complexity and resultant drawbacks previously mentioned.

Recent innovations from Diversey include: the latest-generation TASKI swingobot 2000 robotic floor cleaning machine; Twister by Diversey diamond-impregnated floorcare pads for use with TASKI floorcare machines and water alone; the IntelliCare hand care system with unique wall-mounted dispenser, the industry’s first automatic hybrid design with touchless and manual activation; Moonbeam3TM Disinfection Technology© for healthcare settings; the TASKI aero tub and backpack vacuum cleaners, among the quietest and most energy-efficient commercial machines on the market.

We have also added new Internet of Clean services such as IntelliLinen for laundries and IntelliDish for mechanical warewashing to build on our already extensive capabilities in this growing area. Cloud-connected services like these are increasingly being used to introduce new levels of insight, management and control to deliver improved performance and reduced costs.

All of these, and other new products, add to our portfolio and our ability to offer choices to customers that enhance the performance and outcome of cleaning operations while also strengthening their ability to win bids and secure new business. We will be highlighting many of these innovations and our total solutions capabilities at The Cleaning Show at London Excel, March 21-23.

MoonBeam3 is Effective Against SARS-CoV-2 in Seconds

We are delighted to receive confirmation through third-party testing that our MoonBeamTM3 UV-C disinfection technology is effective in just seconds against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

MoonBeam3 is an ultraviolet-C disinfection device that adds assurance beyond manual cleaning and disinfection. This portable, powerful solution disinfects quickly, reliably and responsibly. MoonBeam3 is cost-effective and designed for fast disinfection of public and high-risk areas. The system offers three individually-adjustable arms that can be positioned at almost any angle, optimizing disinfection energy to allow dosing of both horizontal and vertical surfaces, in just three minutes.

MoonBeam3 has undergone third-party testing against several microorganisms including enveloped viruses, small non-enveloped viruses, bacteria and bacterial spores. These tests have demonstrated a significant log reduction in these key pathogens.

Since studies have shown that contamination of environmental surfaces in healthcare facilities with SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA is widespread, Diversey commissioned 3rd party testing of MoonBeam3 in the US, and has also partnered with the highly respected Fujita Health University in Japan, to test the effectiveness of the MoonBeam3 against SARS-CoV-2. The completed test results from Japan proved that MoonBeam3 was effective against SARS-CoV-2 under a range of conditions with contact times as low as 4 seconds for a 6 log reduction. This is equivalent to a 99.9999% or million-fold reduction in the number of virus particles.

This study validates that MoonBeam3 is effective against SARS-CoV-2, the pathogen that causes COVID-19.

More About MoonBeam3

Cleaning teams have been looking for new ways to enhance their infection prevention capabilities alongside existing processes during the Covid-19 pandemic. At Diversey we have been helping customers meet this challenge and implement the right products and equipment to enable highly effective solutions. One of the products that has caused a lot of interest is our innovative Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology device.

Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology delivers powerful UV-C light to provide fast broad area disinfection of high-touch surfaces. It is effective in as little as three minutes when used in conjunction with normal daily cleaning and disinfection processes. This is much faster than fogging and almost twice as effective as traditional cleaning and disinfection alone in destroying the pathogens that cause infections.

Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology offers facilities a completely hands, chemical and fume-free way to complement existing processes with safer high-performance disinfection. The UV-C light produced by the device penetrates and destroys the DNA in the cells of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria, and spores. This stops them from multiplying and causing infections.

The device is ideal for surfaces accidentally missed during regular cleaning and for frequently touched, hard-to-clean surfaces and intricate equipment. In hospitals and care homes, it can be used in patient rooms, operating theatres, and bathrooms and on patient care equipment, keyboards, monitors, and workstations. In general settings, it can be used in almost any area to complement existing cleaning and hygiene processes.

Quick and Easy to Use

Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology is quick and easy to use. It has push-button activation and short operating cycles. The three articulating, light-producing arms can be positioned independently to target light efficiently and closely onto surfaces. This high-efficiency dosing reduces disinfection times.
Areas to be treated require no special preparation and can be used immediately after the device has been turned off. This means rooms are out of use for much less time than required by many alternative processes. The speed and simplicity of the device make it suitable for more settings and typically allows one operator to treat more areas each day. This enhanced productivity means lower labour and operating costs. Periodic maintenance is limited to bulb replacement, with no tools required.

Although it was devised for hospitals and care homes, Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology is suitable for almost any setting where fast disinfection is required. This is one of the reasons there has been so much interest from customers in public transport, cruise ships, prisons, and elsewhere this year.
The device is available on a monthly lease/rental finance plan. This spreads the cost of ownership over a fixed number of affordable monthly payments and does not require a capital expenditure decision. Customers can, of course, also purchase the equipment outright. We will be happy to provide more information or arrange a demonstration.

Making Light Work of Infection Prevention

Moonbeam3TM Disinfection Technology© delivers powerful UV-C light to provide fast broad area disinfection of high-touch surfaces in hospitals and care homes in as little as three minutes when used in conjunction with normal daily cleaning and disinfection processes. This is much faster than fogging and almost twice as effective as traditional cleaning and disinfection alone in destroying the pathogens that cause healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).

Powerful UV-C light provides fast broad area disinfection of high-touch surfaces in hospitals and care homes.

UV-C penetrates and destroys the DNA in the cells of pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and spores which stops them multiplying and causing infections. This means Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology offers facilities a completely hands, chemical and fume-free way to complement existing processes with safer high-performance disinfection. The device is ideal for surfaces accidentally missed during regular cleaning and for frequently-touched, hard-to-clean surfaces and intricate equipment. It can be used in patient rooms, operating theatres and bathrooms and on patient care equipment, keyboards, monitors, and workstations.

UV-C light emitted by Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology can disinfect surfaces across a broad area.

Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology is quick and easy to use with push-button activation and short operating cycles. Its three articulating, light-producing arms can be positioned independently to target light efficiently and closely onto surfaces to be disinfected. This unique design allows it to be used in more places while its high-efficiency dosing increases speed which reduces labour and operating costs. Periodic maintenance is limited to bulb replacement, with no tools required.

The arms on the Moonbeam3 Disinfection Technology device can be positioned to ensure maximum UV-C performance.
