PRLog - Feb. 28, 2012 - ROLLA, Mo. -- One of the most innovative ideas in the cleaning industry is the introduction of microfiber cleaning cloths and tools. Nearly a decade later, many janitorial and cleaning firms still have little knowledge of what microfibers are and how to effectively use them.
Green Clean Institute has introduced a very affordable online course called "Understanding Microfiber" which is enjoyable and educational. This is the kind of training that nearly every front-line worker should. "Most cleaning workers are trained with the 'follow me' system." reports David Thompson of the Green Clean Institute. "Very little changes in a cleaning company this way. New ideas a slow to take hold, and a Green program is starved because the staff is purely task-oriented."
The mission of the Green Clean Institute is to help janitorial and cleaning companies step up to a level of honesty that is lacking in the real world. Many cleaning companies buy some Green products and declare that they are Green. There is no test, training, or support for the Green program. We fill that gap for thousands of Green janitorial firms honest performing a Green cleaning program.
Training your staff is equally as important as buying the product. We find that untrained workers use old methods with Green cleaning that frustrates everyone. If you use a Green cleaner in the old way "Spray and Wipe," you've wasted your time and money.
The same way with microfiber tools. There is a way to fold it, use it, maintain it, and launder it. Otherwise, they are of small value to the company.
This is particularly true during the flu season when we are all concerned for sanitation and cleaning. Microfibers can literally prevent the spread of diseases like MRSA and pink eye. Of course, that is only true if you understand how microfiber tools are suppose to be used.
Finally, janitorial firms will reduce chemical use which saves everyone money. When workers are properly instructed and supervised, the cost of cleaning chemicals will go down, and the quality of the indoor air will improve.
