Why Micro- Fiber?

Why is Micro- fiber a big thing in the cleaning industry? First Micro-fiber is not a new kind of fabric. It has been around for the better part of ten years or more. what is Micro-fiber it is a fabric that is woven with over a thousand individual   threads. It is used in all  phases of today’s  life.  A good example are couches and clothes. For the cleaning industry this fiber a major help to the those who use them and adhere to uses.

The main reason why Blue Ribbon Maintenance uses Micro-fiber is because it has been proven that it reduces transfer of germs.  Professionals, like those who work at Blue Ribbon Maintenance, know we should be using the color code method as part of your daily cleaning.  What the color coded method is  using four color cloth for different areas in the building. That includes mop heads as well.

Examples of Green Cleaning and Micro-Fiber Uses:

At Blue Ribbon Maintenance we use Red, Blue, Yellow,  and Green. We use them this way:

  • Red: grease and grime and polishing
  • Blue:    Glass cleaning
  • Green : bathrooms
  • Yellow: Kitchen
  • Mop Head we use green, white , blue
  • White: hallways

By using the different colors in micro-fibers, we reduce  the chances of cross contamination, and provides a healthier and cleaner work environment.

For those who think Micro-fiber is only a passing “fad”. it is not going away. We encourage you to make it a part of your daily use.

Ring around the toilet

Quite a few of my clients have expressed concerns as to why some of the toilets that they don’t use regularly look so bad. It looks like what I would call a “Science project.

There is a really quick fix for this. First any toilet that not used often- your should leave the lid open. I know many of us automatically close them. The reason for this that the toilet is not breathing so to speak. Air must get in the toilet to keep bacteria and germs from growing.

Also clean that toilet at least once a month, even if you don’t use it,  to keep germs and bacteria from growing. One thing you should never do is put the block in the toilet to help clean them. For over time they are prone to erode the flushing parts of a toilet.

Cleaning your house

There is an amazing feeling that comes from walking into a clean, organized home—especially when that home belongs to you! Spring cleaning is a great opportunity to transform your home into a tranquil retreat for you and your family. It is also a necessity—removing dust, dirt, and pet hair from your home is important for your health (especially for those with allergies).

Here are some tips from home improvement experts to give your home a fresh, clean look that will last all summer long.
  • Eliminate clutter! Donate or sell everything you don’t need or want. Less “stuff” makes it easier to clean and organize your home.
  • Clean each room from top to bottom. Start with ceiling fans/light fixtures, move on to walls and furniture, and end with floors.
  • Wash walls, baseboards, and woodwork with warm water, dish soap, and a cloth/sponge.
  • Wash windows and vacuum blinds and curtains.
  • Update your rooms without spending a lot of money by replacing linens, towels, shower curtains, area rugs, and pillows.
  • Use microfiber cloths instead of paper towels. You can wash and reuse them.
  • Clean out the fridge—throw away old food and wipes shelves with a damp cloth. Do the same with your cabinets.
  • Shampoo your carpets. You can rent/buy a carpet cleaner or have them cleaned professionally.
Once your house is clean, use these ideas to keep it that way.
  • Leave your shoes at the door and train other members of your household to do the same.
  • Keep door mats at every entrance. Sweep your porch, patio, and entryways daily to keep dirt from coming into your house.
  • Designate a space for everyone’s stuff (baskets and bins work great) so it doesn’t end up all over the house.

And don’t forget to call Gloria M’s Cleaning service to help keep your home clean!
