Strengthen Your Health by Cleaning with Microfiber Tools

Strengthen Your Health by Cleaning with Microfiber Tools

Everybody wants to be healthy and work in a healthy environment.  Using microfiber tools to clean your building can help achieve these goals.  

Here are two major health benefits associated with using microfiber to clean your building… 

  • Health Benefit No. 1:  Microfiber cleaning tools reduce the amount of dust and allergens that are “kicked up” into the air while cleaning.  This should lead to less sniffling and sneezing around the office.  

Microfiber is a tiny, tiny fiber that is woven together and then used to create cleaning tools, such as cloths, towels, mops, dusting mitts, and dusting wands. Microfiber has a positive charge that attracts and traps dust particles instead of merely moving them around.  Most dust cloths or other dusting tools don’t attract or hold the dust.  Instead, much of the dust is released into the air. 

  • Health Benefit No. 2:  Microfiber mopping systems reduce cross contamination, which is the transfer of bacteria from one room to another room. 

Have you ever watched a scene like this unfold in your building?  Using a traditional mop, the janitor mops the men’s restroom and the women’s restroom.  With the same mop and mop water, the janitor then mops the kitchen floor or break room floor.  This is not good for your health. 

Microfiber mopping systems are different.  Microfiber mops have interchangeable mop heads.  Instead of repeatedly rinsing and wringing the mop and routinely changing mop water, the janitor can simply remove the dirty mop head and replace it with a clean mop head.  After mopping a restroom, the janitor should remove the dirty pad (which will be laundered) and replace it with a clean pad before moving to another room.
