Research proves economic benefits of Activeion cleaning technology in hotels
In depth research carried out at INTEHL - the Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship - at the Ecole hoteliere de Lausanne, Switzerland (EHL) has established that innovations such as Activeion's cleaning technology can cut hotel cleaning costs.
Financial analysis showed that the use of the Activeion ionator EXP on general surfaces can save housekeeping budgets a substantial percentage by comparison with conventional cleaning with chemical-based products, especially when illness rates, training, recycling, disposal and other costs are considered.
Practical studies at the EHL studios, hotel rooms, common areas and kitchens confirmed the efficiency of daily cleaning with Activeion technology. Many of the hotels surveyed are currently dissatisfied with their present cleaning detergent and chemical based solutions, finding them weak in sustainability. Activeion's chemical-free solutions therefore can fill a specific gap in the cleaning market.
Recently endorsed as a food-safe aid to manufacturing (cleaning and sanitation) in accordance with HACCP International's Food Safety Certification System, the Activeion ionator EXP is believed to be Europe's first handheld tap-water ioniser - a completely chemical-free cleaning tool that ionises and converts tap water into ionised water.
The ionised water that sprays out when you squeeze the trigger has been proven to kill 99.9% of common bacteria plus the H1N1 Type A 2009 swine 'flu virus on hard non-porous surfaces. It also lifts all types of soil and makes it easy to wipe away, leaving surfaces in hotel kitchens, restaurants, serving areas and washrooms sparkling clean and safe.
Founded in 1893, EHL now has 1,864 students from more than 80 different countries and can claim 25,000 alumni in 64 chapters and 106 countries. The school employs over 350 international staff committed to transferring practical hospitality knowledge to tomorrow's hoteliers.
