MICROFIBER CLEANING

Every day the rooms in the house are infested with dust. Sometimes this can reduce the quality and appearance of your home. That why it is important to invest in a microfiber mop.

Microfiber is more efficient at cleaning out dust than any methods. It can reach into surface pores where the cotton mop becomes too deep for cleaning. Mops are the most popular uses of microfiber material. Here are the benefits of using a microfiber mop.

  1. Increases productivity

When using a microfiber mop, you do not have to wring out the mop or use some other solution. Just water alone will allow you to remove 99% of all dirt dust and germs from your floors. It is a low water mopping method because you only need a damp pad to deep clean any hard surface. Compare that to traditional method tat takes up to 40 minutes to an hour to clean an area. 

  2. Reduces Worker Injury

Microfiber mops are designed to fit comfortably in a user's hand and weigh significantly less than conventional wet cotton loop mops. They are easier to use, microfiber mops are safer and prevent more injuries than traditional cleaning methods.

  1. Reduces Cross Contamination

Healthcare facilities have been using microfiber cleaning. This is to reduce cross contamination risk between patient rooms, some state laws require that maintenance personnel change out the mop and/or cleaning solution after every room.

  1. Reduced Chemical and Water Usage

Microfiber mops use about 10-20 times less liquid than standard cotton mops, helping water usage costs.  Very few microfiber applications require the use of chemicals.

  1. Cleaning Power

Microfiber cleans more effectively, reaching into surface pores and crevices, where cotton mop materials are too large for deep cleaning.

Microfiber cleaning is the most significant product innovation to the cleaning industry in the last century. It’s a quick and easy and help preserve environmental resources. In using microfiber material, you'll find that the key benefits extend beyond your workers' wellness. It helps protect the environment by reducing both your contribution to the waste stream and the use of water and harmful chemicals.

Dehumidifiers DEHUMIDIFIERS ARE ESSENTIAL AFTER FLOOD Ventura California

Removing water is just the first step in drying water damage. It can take days or even weeks to dry walls, carpets and other materials. Trapped moisture within a wall cavity can lead to the growth of bacteria. Microbial growth will occur if allowed to remain wet for extended periods of time from your home. To let the trapped moisture escape, you should open windows and doors and it would be wise to use a dehumidifier to reduce the moisture content of the air and help things dry more quickly, especially in closed areas.

A dehumidifier is an electrical appliance which reduces and maintains the level of humidity in the air, usually for health or comfort reasons, or to eliminate musty odors and to prevent the growth of mildew by extracting water from the air. It can be used for household, commercial, or industrial applications.

High humidity levels can destroy your home structure. Moisture can affect the wood in your home, including the support beams, causing them to crack or split. Mold can grow in the wall. Metal fittings may start to rust.

WHAT YOU SHOULD LOOK FOR A RESTORATION COMPANY

Find certified professionals. The water damage restoration industry is completely unregulated. It’s easy to start a business like this. If the company you’re looking for has certifications through a certification institution, then you know that they are professionals and will do their job the best they can. Their certifications indicate that they have the most up-to-date training, knowledge, and tools to assist you.

Offers wide range of services. A company that offers a wide range of water restoration services preferable compared to a company that doesn’t offer as many services. This is the easiest way to determine general expertise.

Do your diligence. Get recommendations. Speak to friends and family to see if they have had any experience with the companies you are looking at. Do not pick a company because they’re offering cheap service. Remember, you get what you pay for. Also, don’t let insurance companies who will suggest water restoration companies pressure you into using a sub-par company just because they said so.

Are they open 24 hours a day? Scammers and con-artists are not going to be willing to be awake at all hours of the night. Also look for companies that are willing to begin work as quickly as possible. Don’t let water damage sit for too long, it gets worse.
