Following our previous blog on smarter cleaning supplies, the team at our London Office Cleaning HQ were very interested to hear of a new “intelligent” toilet that apparently only needs cleaning once a year. Designed to kill bacteria and remain stain-free, the product opens when approached and self-cleans with every flush. Whilst our London office cleaning teams are happy to tackle any cleaning task, we’re aware that many people don’t count toilet-cleaning among their favourite tasks.
It is therefore unsurprising that despite its £6,704 price tag, over 40 million earlier versions of the Neorest toilets have been sold. The BBC reports that its ‘self-cleaning process uses a combination of a disinfectant and a glaze – made out of zirconium and titanium dioxide – which coats the bowl’.
“Once it flushes it sprays the interior of the bowl with electrolysed water,” Toto spokeswoman, Lenora Campos stated, going on to say that the “proprietary process” essentially turns the water into a weak bleach which kills any bacteria in the bowl.
The BBC states that meanwhile ‘an ultraviolet light in the lid charges the surface’, making it ‘super-hydrophilic – or water-loving, so nothing can stick to it – and also photocatalytic, enabling oxygen ions to break down bacteria and viruses’.
As it cleans inside of the bowl only, potential purchasers need to know that the rest of the product would still need to be cleaned appropriately. Our teams of London office cleaners all agreed that even so, the technology is likely to prove extremely popular.
