Neat ideas in cleaning technology.

Innovation in UVC

UVC Robots

The World Health Organisation has stated that SARS-CoV-2 can persist on surfaces for periods of time ranging from a few hours to several days. In addition, reports from the CDC have indicated that floors are an often overlooked source of pathogens that can spread throughout facilities.

We implement a range of UVC robots that combine floor scrubbing with UVGI (ultraviolet germicidal irradiation) technology to deliver unprecedented cleaning and hygiene standards for our customers.

Backed by decades of supporting studies, UVC is a widely used germicidal solution. Exposure to UVC light deactivates the DNA of bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens, destroying their ability to multiply and cause disease.

By combining floor scrubbing and UV radiation, we provide our customers with assurance of the highest rates of disinfection and sanitisation.

Innovation in Air Purification

Luxibel Air Purification

Combining our exceptional skills and expertise, Mitie has partnered with Luxibel, a global provider of UVC Disinfection Systems, to introduce cutting-edge air cleansing technology to support customers and enhance the safety assurance in properties.

Harmful bacteria, viruses and toxic gases are just some of the agents known to circulate indoors. But in offices, airports, shopping centres and public and private spaces, building users can breathe easy with Mitie’s air disinfection technology.

The Luxibel UVC (Ultraviolet) purification lamp uses the latest technology to blitz a number of known airborne and surface contaminants, ensuring indoor air and surfaces are extensively disinfected, fresh and clean, maintaining peace of mind for colleagues, customers and guests alike.

This chemical-free innovation can be installed as a wall-mounted unit, concealed within existing vents or even disguised as a ceiling tile.

They help protect against airborne pathogens, creating a safer and more beneficial indoor environment with the power of light.

Mitie in Birmingham

Innovation Hub

As part of Mitie’s continued commitment to excellence in cleaning, work has begun on an industry-leading ‘Innovation Hub’ based at a brand-new premises in Birmingham.

The purpose of this experience will be to showcase Mitie Cleaning & Hygiene Services, the excellence of our people and processes, our commitment to innovation, and how our wide range of cleaning services deliver assurances to our customers that their spaces are clean, safe and sanitised.

In order to properly demonstrate Mitie’s excellence in cleaning, the Innovation Hub will feature spaces dedicated to robotics and bringing the science of cleaning to life, alongside a practical demonstration of the smart sensors we use to optimise our service delivery, and our range of Citrox products that are exclusive to Mitie in the facilities management sector.

In addition, the Innovation Hub will also provide some insight on the Plan Zero Initiative and our pledge to reach net-zero carbon by 2025.

We look forward to sharing this new experience with you in the second-half of 2021.
