Ensuring guest room cleanliness has always been a top priority for hotels, but in the wake of COVID-19, clean rooms will be even more important to hotel guests of the future. Stringent cleaning measures focused on infection prevention and reducing bacteria are already embedded in healthcare spaces, but there will be a shift toward enhancing this practice in hospitality and other public places as well.
Microfiber can be an important part of initiatives to provide a cleaner guest room experience, and it is possible to implement microfiber cleaning solutions at hotel properties in a cost-effective and sustainable way.
In its raw, unfinished state, microfiber begins as a mixture of polyester and polyamide pellets. Through an extrusion process, synthetic fiber is created and then split. Split microfiber is extraordinarily small—finer than a strand of human hair.
The microfiber weaving process creates a series of densely packed split fibers. This dense construction results in a product that is adsorbent, enabling the collection of solute molecules—such as virus or bacteria—by causing those pollutants to attach to the fiber’s adsorbents.
Densely packed microfiber is also electrically charged, facilitating the static attraction of dirt. In contrast to a natural fiber like cotton, the unique properties of synthetic microfiber allow for dirt and moisture to be lifted and stored in the space between the split fibers.
There are many benefits to implementing microfiber cleaning solutions, including:
From cleaning cloths to dust pads and wet mop solutions, microfiber is a tool with widely recognized cleanliness, environmental, and cost savings benefits. To learn more about how to implement microfiber at your property, please contact a member of our team.
