When people think of commercial cleaning and janitorial services, they often don’t associate it with innovation or science. They might envision a simple routine: spray a cleaning solution, wipe, and move on. However, it’s much more complex than that.

The era of coronavirus underscored the critical importance of proper cleaning materials and sanitization protocols. At Colonial Commercial Cleaning, we have proudly served Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. for over a decade. Now, more than ever, our clients are keen to know about the specific cleaning products we use, our measures to prevent cross-contamination, and our commitment to utilizing the best products and practices that science offers.

One tool that’s been in our arsenal for years is the microfiber cloth. Its efficacy is unparalleled. As the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) points out, the cleaning prowess of microfiber is due to its increased surface area and its positive charge. The “micro” in microfiber refers to the incredibly thin cloth fibers, which are roughly 200 times finer than human hair. This unique structure enables the cloth to trap a significant amount of germs, microbes, and spores. Since dirt and grease typically carry a negative charge, they are naturally attracted to and held by the positively charged microfiber cloth until it’s laundered.

At Colonial Commercial Cleaning, we appreciate the variety of colors and sizes in which these cloths are available. This variety doesn’t just add a splash of fun to cleaning; it aids in preventing cross-contamination. We train our employees to use specific colors for designated tasks, ensuring optimal cleanliness. Moreover, the durability of these cloths – they can be washed up to 1,000 times without a decline in effectiveness – is both cost-effective and environmentally friendly.
