- Case Study -
DoubleTree by HiltonTM is a 140-room, 4-star hotel located in the heart of Asheville, North Carolina.
Asheville’s DoubleTree by HiltonTM experienced a unique challenge due to its location. By utilizing drone technology from LucidBots, the establishment ensured operational efficiency, safety, and cost-effectiveness, transforming its maintenance approach and boosting customer satisfaction.
The hotel lay atop a 90-foot cliff that introduced serious risks and operational hardships for traditional cleaning methods. Standard procedures involved risky, labor-intensive lifts and incurred high costs.
Twin City Pressure Washing responded by integrating drone technology, a safer, efficient, and cost-effective cleaning solution. The process involved assessment and planning, drone selection and training, establishing operational guidelines, and conducting trial runs for performance optimization.
Drone cleaning is safer for the technicians because they're on the ground. It's safer for pedestrians and it's safer for the tenants.”
