Janitorial Cleaning in Beaverton: The Microfiber Advantage

Posted on November 1, 2017

You may have heard the saying “If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it,” but from telegrams to the internet, horse and buggies to cars, improvements in technology have made almost every aspect of life easier and more efficient over the past hundred years. This is especially true in the cleaning industry, where new technologies have brought us disinfectants, vacuum cleaners, and one of our most valuable cleaning supplies: microfiber cloths and mops. The microfiber supplies we use at JAN-PRO® of Portland have allowed us to provide Beaverton, OR facilities with results that are safer, more efficient, and more effective, ensuring the highest quality janitorial services at each and every cleaning.

How Microfiber Helps Janitorial Cleaning in Beaverton

What sets our microfiber cleaning supplies apart from the traditional rags and cloths used by some janitorial services in Beaverton is the size of the fibers woven together to make the cloths. Traditional cloths and rags are woven using large fibers of cotton or nylon with large spaces in between the fibers. These traditional cloths work by dragging along surfaces, collecting dust and dirt as they go.

As the name suggests, microfiber cloths are made up of much smaller fibers – about 1/16 the size of a human hair, in fact. Because the fibers in our cloths are much smaller than in the cloths used by some janitorial cleaning services in the Beaverton area, our microfiber cloths are able to pick up small particles of bacteria, as well as dirt and dust. Where traditional cloths and mops only remove 30% of bacteria from surfaces, microfiber cloths and mops remove up to 99% of bacteria, leaving surfaces cleaner without the use of harmful disinfectants.

In addition to removing bacteria for safer workplaces, our microfiber cloths also help us give facilities in the Beaverton area more efficient janitorial cleaning services. While traditional cloths and rags simply drag dirt and dust across surfaces, when the fibers in our cloths rub together, they become positively charged. This positive charge draws negatively-charged dust particles into the weaving of our cloths and traps it, saving us from having to wipe the same surface several times.
