We are a full janitorial service provider. Our cleaning services process provides green cleaning, which utilizes environmentally-friendly ingredients, use of microfiber cleaning products for windows, mirrors, walls, glass, bathrooms and chemicals to preserve human health and environmental quality.

Why We Use Microfiber

First of all, what is microfiber? Microfiber is a synthetic fiber with a diameter 100-200 times thinner than a human hair. The ultra fine fibers are woven together to make cleaning products like towels and mops. The manufacturing process produces hooks and loops that produce a material that is extremely soft, absorbent, and durable.

Infection Control & Decrease in Cross Contamination:

Pettos Maintenance Services Ltd. cleaning crews use different color microfiber towels to decrease the chances of cross contamination. How nasty would it be to use the same towel on a toilet and an office desk or break room table? Yuck!.

Pettos Maintenance Services Ltd. cleaning crews utilize the use of microfiber towels.. Different color cloths are used for specific areas of the building. For example blue cloths are mop for the bathrooms, green cloths for windows and pink for other areas.. They are color coded for specific areas and tasks inside the facility. Talk about a decrease in cross-contamination!

Attract Dirt & Dust:

The manufacturing process of making microfiber produces a positively charged fabric. This positively charged microfiber attracts the negatively charged dust and dirt. This produces increased cleaning capabilities.

Less Water & Cleaning Chemicals:

Traditional fabrics use much more water & chemical to clean the same area that microfiber can clean. Less water and chemical usage produces green cleaning, greater savings and reduces the impact on the environment.

Small Microfibers:

The small microfibers get into pores & crevices better than cotton, providing better cleaning results.

Absorbent:

Did you know that microfiber has about 100 times more surface area than natural textiles of the same size? The fibers also hold about 7-8 times their own weight in water. Furthermore, whereas cotton absorbs about 70% of moisture, microfiber absorbs about 98%. This means a dryer area for a decreased chance of “Slip and fall” accidents.

Longer Life:

Microfiber can be laundered many more times than traditional fibers. Many microfiber towels & mops can be laundered hundreds of times! This reduces the impact on the environment over time.

Cleaner Fabric:

Bacteria doesn’t absorb into the microfiber material like cotton. So when you pickup a clean microfiber mop or towel, you know it is cleaner.
