Electrically Charged Split Fibers
Each fiber is split during manufacturing. This split structure results in star shaped fiber with a dramatically increased surface area making microfiber a highly dense material that is very absorbent, able to hold 6 times its weight in water. Positively charged fibers, another result of microfiber's unique manufacturing process, attracts negative charged dust and locks it in eliminating redistribution.
When using microfiber mops cross-contamination is reduced by changing mop pads in every room. Soiled mop pads are kept separate and are collected and sent to the laundry at the end of each shift.
Microfiber cloths and mops are available in a variety of different colors. Implement a color-coded cleaning system to differentiate between departments and wiping applications resulting in a safer, cleaner and healthier environment. For instance, in bathrooms, red cloths can be used for toilets and yellow cloths for sinks. Green cloths can be used for office cleaning.
Reduce Chemical and Water Usage
Traditional loop mopping requires changing the cleaning solution every 2-3 rooms to prevent cross-contamination. With microfiber mops only clean cloths are soaked in cleaning solution, changing the solution is no longer needed.
The Sustainable Hospitals Project at the University of Massachusetts Lowell and the University of California Davis Medical Center study both found cost savings using microfiber in three key areas.
- Reduction in Chemical and Water cost
- Up to a 60% lifetime cost savings for mops
- 20% labor savings from improved worker productivity
