BSC Cleaning has transitioned all of its cleaning materials, including dry and wet mops and cleaning cloths, to microfiber. This transition aligns with our company philosophy of using Green Cleaning Solutions in our cleaning programs wherever possible.
Microfiber is a polyester and nylon fiber that is used to make fabric. The fiber is many times smaller than a human hair; when woven together, the fibers create a net-like surface that traps more dirt, debris and moisture than cotton. The nylon in the microfiber has a static charge that pulls in and traps dirt until the fiber is washed. In addition, microfiber mops use significantly less water and require minimal chemicals to clean effectively. Finally, because microfiber mops weigh less than traditional cotton mops, workers experience less back strain and fatigue from repeated use.
Microfiber is simply a superior cleaning material. Advantages include:
If you’re considering purchasing a microfiber-cleaning tool for your home or business, our only advice is to clean it properly. Microfiber cloths and mops should be washed by themselves, as lint from other materials tends to cling to them.
If possible, use a small amount of liquid rather than powder detergent so that fewer residues attach to the absorbent microfibers. There is no need to use bleach, fabric softeners or very hot water, and doing so may reduce the effectiveness and life of your microfiber cloth.
Finally, microfibers dry quickly with low or minimal heat and since high temperatures can melt the fibers, you should avoid them in both the washing and drying cycles. So it’s pretty easy – just use a little bit of liquid detergent and cool or warm water to clean your microfiber and use the fluff or low setting to dry it.

These two locations require solid cleaners who are prompt each morning and are committed to quality.
