What is Microfiber?
Microfiber is a very fine synthetic fiber — 100 times finer than human hair — composed of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide (nylon). The fibers are split to increase absorbency and create microscopic hooks.
Split microfibers allow for more aggressive cleaning and removal of microscopic debris than conventional methods.
Many facilities can operate in a cleaner environment by using microfiber cleaning products. Schools, healthcare facilities and offices are all appropriate settings for the use of microfiber wet and dry pads.
With rising concern over Indoor Air Quality, microfiber cleaning systems continue to be developed that keep cleaning for health as their foremost goal.
