Why Microfiber is the Superior Cleaning Technology

How does your facility clean? It has been said that the most significant product to the cleaning industry in recent years is Microfiber Technology. To the untrained eye, Microfiber Cloths may look like any other cloth, however, their composition is much different. How so?

What is Microfiber?

Microfiber is a synthetic blend made up of Polyester & Nylon fibers 1/16th thickness of a single human hair. These strands curl, so they collect and hold dirt, debris, and bacteria to a micron level. That is the technology that makes Microfiber so effective.

What are the Benefits of Microfiber?

  • More Effective Clean: Microfiber goes where no terry towel has gone before collecting debris too small for traditional cloths.
  • Reduces Chemical Usage: Microfiber cloths work best with just a touch of dampness. This significantly reduces the amount of water and cleaning used in traditional cleaning methods.
  • Increased Productivity: The microfiber cloth does the cleaning for you. With proper folding techniques, you can utilize 16-sides of the cloth so you can keep cleaning without stopping to replace the cloth.

Care & Cleaning

Many wonder, since Microfiber can collet debris and bacteria on a micron level, do you have to throw out the cloths when you're finished? The answer is no. Microfiber cloths can be laundered in a washing machine.

Proceed with caution, great care should be taken to make sure the water temperature is cold, and that only microfibers should be washed together. Any other materials washed with microfibers will ruin the cloths. Follow the instructions included with your microfiber cloths.

Cleaning & Infection Control with Microfiber Cloths

When it comes to cleaning, it's no wonder why Microfiber Cloths are the #1 choice for hospitals, fire stations, schools, & viral preventative cleaning. 

Has your facility started using Microfibers yet? The benefits are endless to your janitorial team and in preventing the spread of dust and germs. Want more information on microfiber cloths? Ask SERVPRO of Downey, (562) 392-3007
