Janitorial Cleaning in St. Petersburg: The Microfiber Advantage

Posted on November 3, 2017

Over the past hundred years, we’ve seen developments in technology make almost every aspect of life easier and more efficient. This is especially true in the cleaning industry where new disinfectants and HEPA filter vacuums allow janitorial services in St. Petersburg, FL to provide safer and more effective cleaning results.

At JAN-PRO® of Tampa Bay, we’re always looking for ways developments in cleaning technologies can improve the janitorial services we provide to St. Petersburg-area facilities. That’s why we’re so enthusiastic about our advanced microfiber cloths and flat mops. Microfiber helps us provide St. Petersburg-area facilities with janitorial services that are greener, safer, and more efficient, leading to higher quality cleaning results overall.

The Advantages of Microfiber for Janitorial Cleaning in St. Petersburg

The main difference between the microfiber cloths we use when cleaning facilities in the St. Petersburg area and the traditional cloths used by some janitorial services is the size of the fibers woven to make up the cloths. While traditional rags and cloths are woven using large fibers of nylon or cotton, our microfiber cloths are made of fibers 1/16 the size of a human hair.

Just some of the advantages of using cloths with such small fibers include:

  • Antibacterial cleaning. While the large fibers in traditional cloths and rags crudely brush over particles of bacteria as well as small particles of dirt and dust, the fibers in our microfiber cloths are small enough to penetrate microscopic surface layers and collect bacteria as well as dirt and dust. These microfibers can remove up to 99% of bacteria from surfaces, where traditional cloths can only remove 30%.
  • Green cleaning. By using microfiber cloths to deliver our janitorial services, we’re able to clean facilities in the St. Petersburg area using fewer harsh cleaning chemicals. This helps create a greener earth and a safer workplace.
  • Thorough cleaning. In contrast to traditional cloths that drag dirt and dust across surfaces, when the fibers in our clothes rub together, they become positively charged, acting as a magnet to trap negatively-charged dirt and dust. This feature allows us to provide more efficient janitorial services and more effective cleaning results to St. Petersburg-area facilities.
