Upper Merion Area School District - Robotic Floor Scrubbers
The Upper Merion Area School District Recently acquired a second Gen X - Duo Bot robotic floor scrubber from Intellibot.
Due to tightening budgets and decreased staffing, the robotic scrubbers have become an integral part of the custodial operation at Upper Merion. The implementation of the scrubbers freed up hard surface floor care duties at our High School and Middle School; these duties were typically assigned to the PM shift head custodians. As a result, we reconfigured our cleaning schedules creating a blended cleaning system utilizing team cleaning, zone cleaning and robotic floor care, resulting in a hybrid approach that Upper Merion has coined - UMARICS – Upper Merion Advanced Robotic Integrated Cleaning System.
It’s exciting to see the much technological advancement that has been made in the cleaning industry. Now more than ever cleaning operators need to seek out, learn and implement such advancements to remain competitive.
