As a business owner that is responsible for not only your customers but also your employees, maintaining clean and safe floors and work surfaces is essential. Unfortunately, it can be challenging.

As Lawton Brothers, our job is to find the best products for your needs, and we believe you have found it. Pro-Link microfiber products were designed to meet industrial and commercial demands.

BENEFITS OF PRO-LINK MICROFIBER PRODUCTS

According to Pro-Link, it’s microfiber cleaning products promotes:

 ●      Better Cleaning

●      Improved Worker Safety

●      Reduced Costs and Waste

●      Reduced Cross-Contamination

Better Cleaning 

According to Washington University, due to microfiber being a polyester and nylon (polyamide) fiber and the fiber being split small than human hair, it is a more superior tool to use when cleaning because of its ability to get into cracks that other materials would not be able to get into. This increased surface area allows microfiber to absorb seven to eight times their weight in liquid. 

Microfiber materials are also better at capturing microbes. According to a study done by the University of California, Davis Medical Center, a cotton loop mop reduced bacteria on floors by 30 percent, while microfiber mops reduced them by 99 percent.

Improved Worker Safety 

According to the University of California, David Medical Center, microfiber mops weigh five pounds less than a regular wet mop. Additionally, the mop head is changed after every room, which can help your cleaning staff in two ways: 

  1. The wringing of the mop (which takes a lot of effort) is eliminated.
  2. If the mop is not put back into the cleaning liquid, it does not need to be changed, meaning your staff doesn’t need to lift multiples times as it can weigh up to 30 pounds, and is lifted an average of seven times per day. 

Reduced Costs and Waste 

Due to microfiber products being a green cleaning tool, your cleaning staff won’t need to use as many chemicals for their tasks, reducing the risk of chemical risks. Additionally, when laundering these mop pads, less energy is needed, which reduces your facility’s waste. 

Reduced Cross-Contamination 

Due to the easy ability to change out the microfiber mop pad, the risk of cross-contamination and spread of infection decreases.
