Terminal 5, Heathrow’s newest and largest terminal with over 30,000 visitors a day has recently implemented a bucketless mopping regime.
The system chosen centres on the new Rubbermaid Microfibre Pulse Mop, the mop makes use of a 0.6L on board reservoir which means it’s capable of cleaning up to 80 m2. When used in conjunction with a Rubbermaid cleaning cart containing a 7.5L reservoir this increases to 930 m2.
Security is of course a major concern at any airport so the cleaners have been issued with Rubbermaid’s new security lockable cleaning carts, they can accommodate everything the cleaner will need including the Pulse mop.
With over 400 cleaners T5 have managed to increase productivity by between 15% and 20%. Furthermore by using the Pulse mop they have greatly reduced the amount of water used, this in turn means the floors dry quicker with less risk to the public.
Add all this to the environmental benefits of saving water and bucketless mopping appears to be a subject we are going to be hearing a lot more about in the future. See the video
