Janitorial Cleaning in Baton Rouge: The Microfiber Advantage

Posted on November 7, 2017

If you’ve ever tried to clean a large facility using a traditional cloth or rag, you know firsthand just how much time it can take and how disappointing the overall results can be. At JAN-PRO® of Southeast Louisiana, we’re always looking for ways to improve the janitorial cleaning services we provide to Baton Rouge, LA facilities. That’s why we clean using microfiber cloths and mops. Microfiber helps us provide facilities in the Baton Rouge area with safer, more efficient, and more effective janitorial cleaning services, leading to overall higher-quality cleaning results.

How Microfiber Helps Janitorial Cleaning in Baton Rouge

What sets the microfiber cloths we use apart from the traditional cloths used by some janitorial services is the size of the fibers that make up the cloths. As the name suggests, microfiber cloths are made up of microscopic fibers that are tightly woven together. In contrast, traditional cloths and rags are made up of much larger fibers. The advantage to delivering our janitorial cleaning services to Baton Rouge-area facilities using cloths with such small fibers include:

  • Antibacterial cleaning. While traditional cloths clean by dragging dirt and dust across surfaces to remove it, their larger fibers are unable to penetrate surfaces and cannot pick up particles of bacteria, which are smaller than particles of dirt and dust. Because the fibers in our microfiber cloths are so small, they are able to attach onto much smaller particles, picking up and removing bacteria, as well as dirt and dust. In fact, studies have shown that while traditional cloths and mops can remove 30% of bacteria from surfaces, microfiber can remove up to 99% of bacteria, leading to safer and healthier workplaces.
  • Greener cleaning. As the microfiber cloths we use to deliver our janitorial cleaning services to Baton Rouge-area facilities are able to remove bacteria on their own, we’re able to clean using fewer harsh cleaning chemicals.
  • More effective cleaning. When the fibers in our microfiber cloths rub together, they become positively charged. This positive charge attracts negatively-charged dust particles, trapping them into our cloth’s weaving, leading to more efficient and effective janitorial cleaning services for Baton Rouge-area facilities.
