Microfiber dates back to the 1970s. Its fibers are measured in deniers, which refers to the thinness of the fiber. Microfiber is typically 1.0 denier or thinner; the thinner or smaller the denier measurement, the finer and more effective the microfiber.
This means that not all microfiber is alike. In fact, microfiber cloths can vary considerably. Recently, manufacturers have developed microfiber products with different weaves and densities, so cleaning professionals need to perform due diligence to select the type and quality of microfiber that will meet their specific needs.
But no matter what type or quality of microfiber you select, it must be properly cleaned, washed, and cared for to ensure it works and cleans effectively. It is especially important to know that microfiber products are highly porous. As their pores become soiled, their effectiveness diminishes.
While Green cleaning chemicals are now available for most all cleaning tasks, manufacturers are still making conventional cleaning chemicals. And, there is a reason for this.
According to Paul Wildenberg, vice president of sales for Charlotte Products, a leading manufacturer of both conventional and Green-certified cleaning products, “in some cases, a conventional, non-Green cleaning product may actually be the better choice, at least right now.”
Among the reasons Wildenberg cites for this is first and foremost, “in some settings they simply may not be allowed.”
Very often when a social media or content marketing site is developed – or when organizations begin putting credible, educational, and quality information on the organization’s main website – they turn to outside experts to create all the content. I am experiencing this right now. A large building service contractor has asked us to develop all of their content for them.
While we welcome the work, there are two things this client needs to know, which we did tell them. First, the more work we perform for their site, the more expensive the program will be, and second, and maybe far more important, having their own people write some of the content for their site may prove much more powerful.
I thought I had heard just about everything when it comes to apps, but this one does take the cake. In 2005, while watching a three-hour movie, Dan Florio, formerly a Microsoft software developer, complained to his wife that there should be a website, app, or other way for moviegoers to know when a lull in a movie is coming up, making it a good time to use the bathroom.
In the past year, I have written several blogs on the benefits of content marketing. To recap, content marketing is a marketing program based on the sharing of quality, credible, and pertinent information – usually on a separate online platform – that generates traffic to a company website and that can lead to sales. In essence, your company is becoming a thought leader in your industry.
While forms of content marketing date back more than a century, it seems that just about every company, especially B2B companies, are getting on the bandwagon and have started a content marketing site or are planning one. Why? Because research indicates this is becoming one of the most effective ways to reach the end-customer.
Before the invention of these machines, floors in airports, train stations and other large facilities were dust mopped and then cleaned using mops and buckets.
It was slow, tedious work, and the results were often less than satisfactory.*As to when automatic scrubbers were introduced, the first machines began to appear during the mid-1950s.”
For those who know and appreciate these machines, you have probably at one time or another heard them referred to as “trash cans on wheels.” Because, truth be told, that is exactly what some of the larger, more industrial systems look like: a large drum with a motor on top, along with filters anchored or resting on a four-wheeled dolly. Smaller tank vacuums tend to resemble an upright carpet extractor and are about the same size.
