Microfiber Cleaning Products Buying Guide

Buying Guide

Make dirt and dust disappear by using microfiber cleaning products! Not only are they fast and easy to use, they will leave your facility spotless. With our vast selection of microfiber wet mops, dry mops, cloths, and mitts, you are bound to find just the right products to help maintain your clean facility.

What is Microfiber?

Microfiber is a synthetic fiber made from a blend of polyester and polyamide. The small fibers are one-sixteenth the size of a human hair and they act as a "hook" to scrape up and hold dust, dirt, and grime. It's also a great alternative to cotton! While cotton fibers push dirt around and only hold on the outer surface, microfiber grasps unwanted particles and doesn't leave any residue behind.

The Benefits

Amazing Absorption

Microfibers can absorb up to seven times their weight in water due to their high density and surface area. Cleaning up spills is a snap, and microfiber mops reduce the amount of water and chemicals needed to complete the job. Plus, because they're so much lighter than regular cotton mops, microfiber mops are a real back saver!

Cost Efficiency

Since microfibers soak up more water and trap more dirt, many users find that they don't need to use nearly as much cleaning product and water to get the job done. Because of this efficiency, cleaning jobs take less time and less labor. From mopping floors to polishing metal, microfiber products cut back on chemicals, time, and grime.

Pathogen Prevention

Pathogens, bacteria, and viruses will "stick" to a microfiber cloth or mop head until they're laundered out, which is a plus for hospitals, daycare operations, retirement communities, and restaurant kitchens. Unlike cotton products, microfiber is made of inorganic materials, ensuring that pathogens have nothing to feed on!

Longevity

Once a microfiber product is soiled, simply throw it in the wash! Most microfiber cloths, mops, and pads can withstand over 500 uses (use then launder), provided you follow this simple tip: Don't use microfiber with or wash it with bleach or fabric softener. Bleach degrades the material, breaking it down quicker. Fabric softener clings to and coats the microfiber, so it won't clean surfaces as well or rinse as thoroughly.

Eco-Friendly

Because microfiber items help you save on the amount of time and product needed to clean, you'll use less water and harsh chemicals! Using a wet microfiber cloth to clean mirrors and counters saves on paper towels. Plus, recycled plastic products are often used to produce microfiber products, which in turn, can be recycled when sent to companies that repurpose them.
