The Efficiency of Microfiber Cleaning Products

dust control

Microfiber products are an amazing way to save money and ensure the health and safety of employees and clients.

When it comes to cleaning products, both for industrial and home use, microfiber technology is truly a wonder to behold. Microfiber, when used properly, can eliminate up to 99.4% of surface contaminants without the need of dangerous or toxic chemicals, making them one of the healthiest and environmentally-friendly means for cleaning. Microfiber is a unique synthetic fiber that is 100% lint-free and incredibly strong. Each microfiber is 1/100th the size of a human hair and contains millions of tiny spaces which trap water, dirt, and grime. In fact, a microfiber mop can hold up to eight times its own weight, which is 30% more than a traditional mop can absorb.

Although the products made with microfiber are ideal for medical facility purposes and can significantly cut down on dangerous cross-contamination scenarios, all industries can benefit greatly from their use.

Microfiber Cloths and Mops for a Safer Environment

Microfiber products are innovative in their construction in that, unlike cotton cloths which require detergents to loosen dirt, germs, and debris, microfiber cloths are composed of millions of tiny fibers which naturally scrub the surface area. By eliminating the need for harsh chemicals or additives, not only do microfiber products present a healthier and safer experience for the user, but pose no threat to the environment since chemical waste is eliminated from the cleaning process.

Although microfiber products are an easy means for all forms of clean-up (especially with their distinct lack of wet chemical products), all microfiber requires proper use for safety and ultimate efficiency. In general, cloths should be kept dry for dusting and giving areas a “once over,” and damp for more intense cleaning. In either instance, once a full microfiber cloth has been used, it should always be swapped out for a fresh one to ensure the removal of dirt and contaminants.

The most important cardinal rule when using microfiber for true wet cleaning is to wring out the used product as much as possible in order to increase its absorbency and maximize its ability to pick up germs and toxins. When the cloth itself begins to appear dirty, be sure to thoroughly rinse it well with hot running water until the water runs clear.

For virtually every industry, microfiber cleaning cloths are the ideal cleaning solution. And with microfiber towel rental, you never have to worry about cross-contamination or proper laundering of the microfiber’s delicate construction.
