ISS employees visited fair Interclean® Amsterdam 2018

The 50,000 m² exhibition grounds of the fair hosted about 800 companies from the cleaning and hygiene sector and partners who mediate their services. The fair offered innovative solutions and developments, and allowed to participate in several seminars, product demos and events specially organised there. Interclean provided an overview of current leading technologies and trends in professional cleaning.

Five ISS employees—quality specialist Anastassia Kornõšenkova, planners Tiiu Peets and Küllike Laas, service manager Maria Fistunenko and purchase manager Lauri Luik—participated in the fair. A meeting of the ISS Group’s purchase department with colleagues from Australia and the US took place on the spot. Altogether, ISS representatives from 26 countries visited the fair.

All participants were happy with the experience and came back to Estonia with new high-flying ideas and the wish to implement everything they saw here. They were especially impressed with floor mopping robots. This is a way of the future that producers are planning to bring to the market. At the moment the prices are steep but as the required technology develops, the costs are expected to fall and robots will be used more widely. Nearly all producers of floor mopping robots were present at the fair. The robots also participated in competitions and it was found that they are even better at cleaning close to objects and edges than people.

Monitoring systems were also a surprise—both machines and cleaners can be virtually monitored and clients can be therefore counselled about workloads and tasks. The system helps to use labour and devices more efficiently and better regulate the manning of work sites.

ISS employees who visited the fair think that using dry cleaning and chemical-free cleaning systems in especially demanding environments like hospitals and the food industry will become the methods of the future.

A new trend they spotted is also creating waste sorting areas in offices and removing separate individual bins from office work stations.
