What is Microfiber

What is microfiber and why is it so important in cleaning and janitorial services?  Here are the Five Facts you need to know about Microfiber.

1. What is Microfiber?

Microfiber is a fine synthetic fiber that is 1/100th the diameter of a human hair. These synthetic fibers are usually polyester or nylon, or a combination of both. Microfiber is often used for furniture and cleaning cloths as it is lightweight, wrinkle resistant, absorband and does not stain very easily.

2. Why use microfiber for cleaning and janitorial services?

When high-quality microfiber is combined with the right knitting process, it creates an extremely effective cleaning material. It can hold eight times its weight in water, it can absorb oils and it leave no dust or lint behind

3. How does it clean better than regular cloths?

Microfiber cleaning tools also absorb fat and grease and their electrostatic properties give them a high dust-attracting power

4. How are they a “green” material?

Microfiber cleaning cloths and mops can clean without using chemicals because of their makeup – they have an amazing ability to pick up more dust, dirt, bacteria without “spreading” the dirt around the surface. Plus, they last a lot longer therefore do not need to be replaced often.  Master Care janitorial uses Microfiber Cleaning materials to promote their janitorial service as a green cleaning company.

5. How do you clean microfiber cloths/mops?

They may be washed in regular detergent in the washing machine, but no softeners! These fabric softeners plug up the fibers making them less effective.
