The type of cloths used for the cleaning process makes a big difference in the efficiency of the operations. The material will affect factors such as the absorbency that will be provided, to the durability of the unit, which determines whether you will make savings or keep spending money on getting replacements. Microfibre is a revolutionary material that took the cleaning industry by storm. Fibres that are so tiny- even just 1% the thickness of a strand of human hair, or 5% that of a silk strand, are used. They are so thin that you can have 200,000 of the microfibres on a square inch of material. This greatly increases the surface area that is available for the absorption of dirt and liquids, making it a favourite amongst home and business owners, to professional cleaning contractors. What’s more, the microfibres are split, which allows to them to grab more strongly onto the dirt that is on the surfaces being worked on. This material is used on just about all cleaning tasks, be they wet or dry jobs. From cloths to mops, incorporating them into your cleaning arsenal will go a long way in bolstering your efforts. When it comes to working on the windows and mirrors of the premises, turn to the Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloth.
Reduced reliance on chemicals
The cleaning action provided by these cloths is attributed to mechanical forces of attraction. The split microfibre generates positive charge, easily picking up the negatively charged dirt particles that are on the surfaces being worked on. These are then firmly held within the Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloth, instead of being pushed around the surface as was witnessed with the conventional cloths. Using it damp with water, or dry for the polishing of the surface to restore the shine, will get the task done. Even when dealing with stubborn stains, where specialized cleaning agents are required, the amount of product that will need to be used will be a fraction of what you would have been taken with alternatives like cotton cloths. This also makes it an eco-friendly cleaning process, contributing to reducing your carbon footprint.
Comes in 4 colours
This is more than just about aesthetics. The cleaning industry has become more sensitive on how equipment is designated, in order to prevent cross contamination. In order to reduce the risk of pathogens being spread from one location to another, a standardized approach is taken, where specific tools are required to be used on different zones. This is with all the equipment, from the buckets and brushes, to mops and cleaning cloths. Colour coded schemes sort the equipment apart based on their colour. This began in hospitals and healthcare facilities, but has gained prominence across the board, in residential and establishments and business premises alike. For instance, red, a colour that is associated with hazards, is assigned to areas like washrooms, where there are high risks of bacterial contamination. In this case, the red cleaning tools, including the cloths and gloves, are restricted to these zones. Yellow is typically designated to clinical use, or for working on washroom surfaces like the walls, sinks and mirrors, to separate this equipment from the red ones used on the much riskier washroom floors and toilet bowls. Green cleaning equipment is assigned to the food and drink preparation areas, including the kitchen, bars, and factories that are involved in food processing. Blue goes for the low-risk areas, from living rooms and offices to classrooms, and general cleaning- which gives it a broader range of surfaces to work on. The colour coding system is not set in stone. You can set it up as you see fit. One simply needs to ensure that the cleaning crew have understood which sets of colours are meant for which specific areas. Speaking of which, the staff training will not be difficult. After all, colours are universally understood. Issues like language barriers don't crop up, and the visual concept is easy to grasp. For window cleaning contractors, having the different coloured Optima ‘Glass’ Professional XL Microfibre Cloths will also portray you in a professional light, with your clients seeing that you are keen on employing hygienic procedures as you go about the task.
