It’s not about cleaning. I know that may be a shock to cleaning business owners, but what it’s really about is your profitability. Think about it, would you be using microfiber if it didn’t help improve your bottom line? Of course not! With that being said many cleaning businesses use microfiber, but are unaware of all the benefits of microfiber on their bottom line. Let’s go over 3 of them.
Achieving Customer Delight
Do your customers care or know exactly what products you’re cleaning their homes with? Probably not. Your customers want exactly what you want, a job well done. So how does microfiber accomplish this? Because of the great and versatile cleaning ability of microfiber, your employees will be able to effectively complete any cleaning task on a variety of surfaces. Efficiency is important because when rushed employees are more likely to miss spots, get sloppy, or forget small details important to that specific customer. If you want those 5 star reviews, make sure you are using high quality microfiber products.
Long Terms Savings
Here’s a trick to do with microfiber, try using just plain water to clean. This will save you loads of money on chemical cleaning solutions. I’m not saying to never use chemical cleaners, sometimes they may be absolutely necessary. With that being said, there are a variety of cleaning tasks that a microfiber towel or mop used with just water will sufficiently get the job done. So does this actually work? Yes, and here’s why. The microfiber definition is 1/100th the diameter of a human hair. This makes it small enough to remove harmful germs and bacteria from a variety of surfaces, some studies even showed up to 99% bacteria removal! Now just imagine millions of the microfibers working together to scrape up things like dirt away from your counters.
You know the risks of injury to your employees, so why not use products that have less impact on their bodies? Since microfiber requires less water than cotton to clean, microfiber mops can be much more lightweight, reducing the risk of repetitive motion injuries or strain. Microfiber flat mop systems also work great without the use of a heavy mop bucket. This can result in less lower back injuries.
Microfiber lasts longer than traditional cotton products. Not only will they retain their effectiveness through hundreds of washings, they are also more absorbent. This means you’ll get more out of them before you need to use a new one. Less is more with microfiber!
Want to make sure your employees are contributing to your bottom line? Make sure they are happy and equipped with the best cleaning products. This means products that are ergonomic and easy to use! As mentioned above microfiber products are lightweight because they don’t need a lot of water to clean, but they can also be used dry! That’s because microfiber has a natural positive charge attracting negatively charged dust. This means you can dry dust counters and floors. Also make sure the hardware includes necessary features for your employees. For example on our Microfiber Mop System, we’ve included an angled frame to make it easier to mop into corners. Your goal should always be for the job to get done effectively and efficiently.
Microfiber is a great all purpose cleaner. This can simplify your employees cleaning process, since many microfiber towels and mop pads will work great on a variety of surfaces. Try using a towel like our Buff™ Pro Multi Surface Towel to clean, wash, dry, polish, or buff! Of course there are specialty towels and mop pads, but generally speaking microfiber can be used for a wide array of applications.
What’s this all mean for your business? Making sure your employees are satisfied creates loyalty, which means you’ll have experienced staff who know what it takes to continually make your customers happy.
Whether directly or indirectly, using microfiber products helps increase your bottom line. With that being said, you do need to make sure the products you are using are high quality. That starts with how they are made. See for yourself where our microfiber is made. I’m sure there are many more benefits of microfiber you can think of that apply to your specific needs.
