Microfiber is a synthetic fiber commonly made up of a blend of polyester and polyamide or nylon. Microfibers are tiny fibers that have been slit into millions of finer fibers that are no thicker than one sixteenth of a human hair.
Production of microfiber dates back to the late 1950s, but until recently the use of microfiber was limited. Why is microfiber part of the ServiceMaster Clean Cleaning System?
The millions of strands created from the splitting process create a surface capable of trapping moisture, dirt and debris.
Microfibers have a positive charge that attracts dust, which has a negative charge. Dust and dirt particles are not only attracted to the microfiber, but are held tightly and not redistributed around the room.
Microfiber cloths remove 99% of bacteria on a surface compared to 33% using industry standard terrycloth.
Less water and chemicals (if any) are used, making microfiber cloths and mop pads cost effective and environmentally responsible.
In addition to being used for wiping down traditional surfaces, microfiber cloths are extremely soft and can be used on most surfaces including floors, walls, ceilings, windows, mirrors and harder-to-reach areas.
