Cleaning tips to keep homes clean and fresh 

Window cleaning micro-fibre cloths

 Micro-fibre cloths are begining to take the place of the more traditional scrim cloth. The great advantage of micro-fibre cloths is that they are ready for use, they do not need hours of preperation to enable you to use them.

 There are many different types and sizes of micro-fibre cloth, all for slightly different purposes. But all of these cloths have the advantage of being very long lasting and extremely effective at cleaning glass.

 

 

 

 

 Microfibre products used for domestic cleaning are normally made from split conjugated fibres of polymide and polyester. Microfibre used for commercial cleaning includes numerous products made of 100% polyester microfibre. Microfibres are very soft and hold their shape well. When top-quality microfibre is combined with the relevant knitting process, it produces a very effective cleaning material. This material can absorb up to eight times its own weight in water. Microfibre products have tremendous ability to absorb oils. They are not hard enough to scratch paintwork unless they have picked up grit or sand particles from previous use.

 

 Microfibre is widely used by car valeters to enable them to remove wax from paintwork,cleaning car interiors, quick detailing, cleaning vehicle glass, and drying. Due to their fine fibres which leave no lint or dust, microfibre cloths are used by car valeters in a similar manner to a shammy leather.

Microfibre is used in numerous professional cleaning situations, for example in floor mops and cleaning cloths. Although microfibre mops may cost more than other mops, they are likely to be more cost effective because they are more hard wearing and require less effort to use.

Microfibre textiles produced for cleaning ,work on a microscopic scale. According to tests using microfibre materials to clean a surface, leads to a reduction of the number of bacteria by 99%, compared to a normal cleaning material which reduces this number  by only 33%.

Microfibre cleaning tools are able to absorb fat and grease and their electrostatic properties give them amazing dust-attracting ability.

Microfiber is unsuitable for some cleaning applications as it accumulates dust, debris, and particles. Sensitive surfaces (such as all high-tech coated surfaces e.g. CRT, LCD and plasma screens) can easily be damaged by a microfiber cloth if it has picked up grit or other abrasive particles during use. The cloth itself is generally safer to use on these surfaces than other cloths, particularly as it requires no cleaning fluid. One way to minimize the risk of damage to flat surfaces is to use a flat, non-rugged microfiber cloth, as these tend to be less prone to retaining grit.

Cleaning textiles made of microfiber must only be washed in regular washing detergent, not oily, self-softening, soap-based detergents. Fabric softener must not be used. The oils in the softener and self-softening detergents will clog up the fibers and make them less effective until the oils are washed out.
