Why Do Microfiber Mops Work So Well?

For those who don’t know, microfiber is a synthetic material which consists of an interlocking blend of two main fibers – polyester and polyamide. While the polyester is useful for polishing and cleaning, the polyamide is absorbent and quick-drying. With the two fibers combined, the individual qualities of both are united and the unique effectiveness of microfiber is created.

The effectiveness of the microfibers lie exclusively to the construction of each strand and the overall mop – each square inch containing approximately 90,000 fibers. Each fiber has been split to create millions of tiny hooks that attract, absorb and remove all kinds of dirt, dust and bacteria from a surface.

Ebola Continues To Be a Concern in Healthcare and Government

While the attention around Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in United States news outlets is subsiding, it continues to be a concern to the healthcare industry and government organizations, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

On November 24, the CDC released a health advisory regarding Ebola risk in Mali due to confirmed cases in Bamako, Mali. According to the CDC's health advisory, all travelers entering the United States from Mali are subject to the 21-day active post-arrival monitoring and movement protocols now in effect for travelers from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, with twice-daily temperature and symptom checks in coordination with state or local public health authorities.

If EVD is still a concern to you and or your customers, or you wish to continue to be proactive with this disease, we recently published a page of our suggested infection control SKUs.
