How to keep your warehouse floor clean?
The challenges of cleaning a warehouse
Cleaning warehouses is highly essential to ensure that workers work in a hygienic environment. But cleaning it can be time-consuming and tedious. In most of the warehouses as of today’s date, it is really difficult to deploy a regular cleaning schedule. The major reasons for this irregular schedule are because of the ever-increasing labor costs, poor job satisfaction, limited labor availability, and health-related risks associated with cleaning industrially dirty environments. On average, most of the warehouses are cleaned once every month. This period is not fixed and there are facilities which clean their environment once every 3 months. This standard of maintenance can affect the workers’ health in the long term, spoil the expensive machinery in production warehouses, reduce its lifespan, and deposit dirt in storage shells of storage warehouses which should be improved in practice.

Seems like you might be having a lot of questions. So, let’s try to answer some of them.
Why is the robot smaller in comparison to your usual cleaning machines?
Larger machines help in cleaning faster and cover more area at one time. This can be useful if you would like to clean quickly before you would like to close your operations. But since the robots can be used anytime, they don’t need to be so large and that fast. Important thing is to collect that dirt and clean the floor properly.
Can the robot work at night? And who would run it?
You can easily schedule the cleaning with SB2 to meet your desired schedule, and it will take care of the rest for you. And yes it can work in the dark as well.
