One of the most important things in a hospital setting is preventing the spread of bacteria and infection. With a large quantity of patients, many of which are susceptible to infection due to impaired immune systems, hospital staff have to take extreme care in making sure bacteria and infections aren’t being spread. Infection control is easier said than done, however, especially when bacteria and infection remnants can sit in microscopic surface openings and dust particles that traditional sanitation methods can’t penetrate.
Luckily, there is a solution. New research in microfiber sanitation systems shows microfiber is able to penetrate these microscopic surface openings and dust particles to provide unrivaled bacteria and infection eradication. This is a breakthrough for infection control because it offers a solution that surpasses traditional products.
Let’s look at how microfiber performs better than traditional sanitation systems in a hospital setting.
How does Microfiber Work?
Compared to traditional materials, microfiber has a lot more fibers, and they’re a lot smaller. This allows them to fit into those extremely small openings and pores, and easily capture evasive dust and dirt particles. In fact, all of those tiny fibers are positively charged, and a slight force of attraction (van der Waals forces) towards those particles. This force is not found within the fibers of traditional materials, which are too large to have this same effect.
There is research to prove microfiber’s superior infection control capabilities. Microfiber development uses physics as a basis for its sanitation, rather than relying on chemicals alone to do the job. According to the CDC, microfiber demonstrated superior microbial removal compared with conventional materials.
Microfiber Options Available to Hospitals
Given its out-performance of traditional sanitation systems, there are many options available to hospitals who wish to incorporate a microfiber sanitation system. Microfiber mops and towels are two very useful products for infection control in a hospital setting. They take care of high-traffic areas with ease, as well as dangerous liquid messes. Infection control can be well managed with these two sanitation tools, which do a better job even without chemicals.
Microfiber can be used with chemicals as well, but it’s important to know it takes care of most sanitation concerns without chemicals. This will save the medical staff and hospital money due to decreased need to purchase chemicals for sanitation.
