What is Cleaning Automation?

July 21, 2022

When we say “cleaning automation”, you might think of robots. And you are not wrong. But it’s more than that. Cleaning Automation is the movement to replace human labor with software and robotics over time. Today, most of the industry is focused on software, but robots should play an increasing role in the 2020s.

Vacuuming robots became a big deal recently, and quite honestly, why wouldn't they? They make our lives easier by taking care of a chore nobody likes to do. (If you are one of the few who enjoy vacuuming and sweeping, please don’t hate on us).

But having a Roomba at home doesn’t mean completely automating your house cleaning. And it indeed does not encompass the whole market of cleaning automation. There needs to be more for an industry that drives U$1T globally every year.

So imagine having a digital twin of your property and receiving timely reminders regarding maintenance and general upkeep. Did you know that you are supposed to check on your water heater every year, for example? Or that you should consider trimming your trees yearly, as well?

Having these reminders saves you hundreds of dollars and a ton of headaches, plus takes you out of the equation: software is doing the work. There’s more: you could upload to-do lists based on your priorities for the home, find a professional cleaner (we call them pros, by the way) with the tap of a few buttons, and never have to make a single phone call in the process.

It sounds like a dream, doesn’t it?

A system that completely automates tasks, such as

scheduling, to-do lists, mapping the area, syncing booking calendars, ensuring a pro is on the way, tracking the jobs, etc., is possible. In fact, it already exists. (Hint, it's us, TIDY!)

Human labor is crucial but can - and should be - supercharged with smart software. This needs to be a technology-driven market. We usually spend two whole hours a day on chores. We could spend little to none with cleaning automation.

Or did you really think the future that awaits us has us still cleaning toilets? (Not if it’s up to us.)
