At first the people at Excalibur were skeptical because there was no scent, no foam and no bubbles.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 12, 2009
After a successful trial beginning in September 2008, MGM's Excalibur Hotel and Casino is now using lotus PRO chemical-free cleaning in its 4000 room facility. Made on-the-spot and on-demand lotus PRO's liquefied ozone is 50% stronger and faster than bleach, yet reverts to water and oxygen once heavy-duty cleaning is done. Tiny carbon footprint, no toxins, fumes or residues, and big cost savings for this Las Vegas landmark.
With almost 4000 guest rooms to keep fresh and clean, Excalibur is one of the largest, busiest and now - thanks to the lotus PRO chemical-free system - greenest cleaning hotels in the world. Following a successful rollout starting in September 2008, the Las Vegas landmark's guest room attendants and janitorial staff are now all using the lotus PRO Commercial Cleaning & Sanitizing System - cleaning effectively with liquefied ozone instead of packaged green or conventional chemical cleaners.
lotus PRO technology uses standard 110 volt power to turn tap water into liquefied ozone - widely acknowledged as nature's most powerful cleaner and sanitizer. Faster and 50% stronger than chlorine bleach, it reverts to water and oxygen after its job is done, leaving no residues or vapors. It kills up to 99.999 % of most common bacteria, viruses, molds and fungi, yet is safe enough to carry a 0-0-0-A NFPA rating and a perfect 50 out of 50 TURI safety score. Because liquefied ozone is made on the spot, it not only saves the planet from pollutants associated with chemical sanitizers, it also eliminates the carbon footprint from packaging, transporting, storing and recycling associated with green cleaners.
From the moment Excalibur management saw a lotus PRO demonstration at an ISSA trade show, they were taken by the idea of heavy-duty cleaning without chemicals. As hands-on hospitality industry innovators there is no commercial cleaning system or chemical they havn't seen, tried or put to the test. With an inkling that lotus® PRO was the better way to go, Excalibur gave lotus PRO a green light to begin on-site testing.
Working closely with the lotus PRO technical and support teams, Excalibur completed the transition away from chemical sanitizers and green cleaners over a six month period. Excalibur successfully replaced various chemicals they were using for different surfaces and applications, cutting cleaning costs on a per room basis by approximately 40%.
"We spent years looking for a way to replace the multitude of chemical cleaners we were using with a single cleaning and sanitizing solution. We looked at other chemical-free systems, but lotus PRO was the only one who not only promised, but delivered. With lotus PRO, we're greener, we're cleaner and we're spending much less." Says Excalibur management. "The sheer amount of rooms, of granite, steel and glass we have is a big cleaning challenge. The time my people spent going back to wipe off streaks doubled the time it took them to clean a guest's bathroom. With lotus PRO streaks and residues are a non-issue because there aren't any."
"At first the people at Excalibur were skeptical because there was no scent, no foam and no bubbles." Explains lotus PRO inventor and company President Steve Hengsperger. "Turning tap water into an all-in-one industrial strength cleaner is hard to wrap your head around if you're used to scented chemicals. Now they have people asking us where they can buy lotus cleaning systems for their personal use at home."
