Industry Insights on Cleaning for Safer, Healthier Facilities
More Than Ever, You Must Truly Clean With The Right ToolsThe CDC recommends performing routine environmental cleaning during virus outbreaks which includes cleaning high touch surfaces such as doorknobs and countertops. Unger has an assortment of tools for your cleaning needs during heightened cold and flu season. Unger tools are designed with efficiency in mind, allowing you to clean faster and better.
What is Microfiber?Simply put, microfiber is one of the most important developments in cleaning technology in years. Microfiber cloths can help you lower the risk associated with harmful contaminants, improve your facility’s image at the lowest possible cost and reduce occupant complaints.As the name states, fibers are repeatedly split in the manufacturing process to make microfibers. Microfibers are knitted into a soft, reusable cleaning cloth that is 30 times finer than cotton. The microfiber’s cleaning surface is packed with filaments that trap soil, remove bacteria and absorb moisture for streak-free cleaning.
Why a Grading System?The range of cleaning products that microfiber may be used for is dictated by many qualities, including fiber thickness, length, finishing, abrasiveness, absorbency, cloth dimension, edging and quality manufacturing techniques.Unger has established several performance factors that have been tested, measured and validated by ASTM independent laboratories and other US standard industry tests. This criteria is designed to assist end users in the selection process when purchasing microfiber cloths.
