SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ.—CIRQ+ founders dreamed of a world where people can work and live safely, allowing a nation hard-hit by the pandemic to return to the life they knew, and today that dream becomes a reality with the launch of CIRQ+CLEAN. Developed by cloud-based platform CIRQ+ in response to the impact of the global COVID crisis, the CIRQ+CLEAN is a first of its kind solution—a touchless sterilization innovation that dispenses an EPA-registered fluid through an in-room autonomous, connected IoT robot, the Cbot. The all-natural, non-toxic disinfecting solution has the most up-to-date approvals by the EPA for use against Sars-CoV-2, the novel Coronavirus that causes the disease COVID-19, as well as other pathogens on hard, non-porous surfaces, and is safe for guests, employees, children, and persons applying the product. Combined with the CIRQ+ in-room mobile hub, the CIRQ+CLEAN Cbot is taking safety, sterilization, and touchless technology to the next level, with limitless applications for hotels, schools, businesses, restaurants, larger event spaces and beyond.
How It Works
In a hotel guestroom equipped with the in-room CIRQ+ hub, the autonomous, smart CBot recognizes an empty room and circumnavigates the space, dispensing a consistent, uniform electrostatically-charged disinfectant on surfaces and areas missed by manual cleaning or UV light methods. Once the initial spraying is complete, housekeeping can safely enter the sterilized room to change linens, clean bathrooms, vacuum, and complete routine cleaning practices, making it the first robot to protect jobs, not take them away. After housekeeping is finished, they inform the hub and leave the room, allowing CIRQ+CLEAN to sterilize the room a second time. Guests are provided with information on the process and reassurance they are entering a thoroughly disinfected room upon entry through a spoken or written message on the screen of the CIRQ+ unit.
“As technologists and innovators at CIRQ+, we were inspired to rise to the challenge posed by the pandemic to leverage our Ultimate Smart Room platform to create viable solutions,” said Yani Deros, CEO and founder of CIRQ+. “CIRQ+CLEAN was created to ensure that employees, guests or residents can trust that the property where they are working or staying has implemented the highest standard of health and safety measures.”
Additional benefits of the CIRQ+CLEAN’s liquid solution include:
- Provides a superior layer of sterilization that has never been used in most industries.
- Delivers results greater than traditional disinfecting and sanitizing solutions in less time.
- Is easy-to-use and affordable as part of regular and repeatable preventive protocols.
- Superior to other commonly used disinfectants and sanitizers that can trigger asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems.
- Eco-friendly and non-caustic, it is safe for guests, employees, children, and pets and is 80 to 100 times more effective versus products such as chlorine bleach, harsh detergents, and cleaners.
- The solution is safe on fabrics, clothing, and other materials.
On September 16, Deros unveiled the new breakthrough technology at a live streaming event held at the New York Marriott Downtown in the World Trade Center, hosted by Anthony Melchiorri, host of Hotel Impossible and CEO of Argeo Hospitality, and Glenn Haussman, host of the popular “No Vacancy” Podcast.
