Microfiber Cloths: The Future of Cleaning
Microfiber technology is changing how we clean. It provides a more efficient cleaning experience than rags and a greener alternative to using paper towels. Microfiber cloths can be bought at your local grocery store for residential cleaning, and are also sold by professional janitorial supply companies for commercial cleaning.
How does it work? Microfiber is created through a chemical process that splits fibers on a microscopic level. There are around 200,000 micro fibers in every square inch of a standard microfiber cloth. The microfibers create wedge shaped cores which act as hooks in order to pick up dirt and bacteria that we can’t see with the naked eye. The fibers, when dry, generate static electricity that attracts dirt particles, the same way as a balloon lifts your hair when you rub it against your head.
What can they clean? What makes this technology so great is that microfiber cloths can be used to solve variety of cleaning problems. The small fibers enable microfiber cloths to clean gentle surfaces such as electronic screens, but are absorbent and efficient enough to clean larger messes on tile or wood surfaces. Also they are great at removing stains from fabric as well as cleaning up liquids off of hard surfaces. Products such as, mops, dusters, and absorbent clothes are all adopting microfiber technology. Whether it is residential house cleaning or commercial office cleaning microfiber technology is a great cleaning solution.
What are the benefits? Microfiber cloths are also a great green cleaning alternative. Microfiber cloths, will save water and chemicals used in the cleaning process because they are so efficient at picking up and eliminating dust and bacteria. Microfiber cloths are also reusable and very resilient so overtime you will save money spent on paper towels and other disposable cleaning products. In a nutshell microfiber technology is changing the way we clean by providing an efficient and green solution for the cleaning industry and personal use.
Overall Microfiber technology is becoming a greener and more efficient way to clean. The microscopic fibers are able to absorb liquids like a sponge, remove dust like a feather duster and can clean better than the paper towel. People and cleaning companies are starting to use microfiber technology for everyday house cleaning and even industrial commercial cleaning. Next time you find yourself picking up a bundle of paper towels from the supermarket consider purchasing a microfiber cloth instead.
