Quick Cleaning With The Optima Proclean Spunlace All Purpose Cloths
These semi disposable cloths can come with a high absorbency and can be used for a wide range of applications. In fact, they are available in different colours, allowing them to blend in the colour coded cleaning scheme that you have set up in your establishment. The colour coded systems are used with equipment like mops and their corresponding mop buckets, brushes since the dirt trapped in their bristles can be a health hazard, plus the dustpans being used to collect the dirt during cleaning. The Optima Proclean Spunlace All Purpose Cloths fit right in, with the different colours allowing you to designate them to specific areas of the building. After all, it wouldn’t be hygienic to clean the kitchen countertops with the same cloth that was used when working on the toilet surfaces. Colour coding schemes are particularly beneficial in preventing cross contamination. Here’s how it works. Red, a colour universally taken to denote hazards, is used for the high-risk areas like cleaning the washroom and toilets. Blue equipment go on the other side of the threat level, being used tables office desks and public areas where the chances of contamination are low. For the food preparation areas, be they kitchens or for the mobile catering companies, green cloths are used. Yellow items, on the other hand, are typically associated with application in clinical environments. You can also designate them for the washroom surfaces that have lower risk, such as the sinks and mirrors, separating them from the equipment that is used on the washroom floor and toilet bowl.
In order to adhere to industry best practices, businesses- especially those in the food and hospitability industries, should ensure that there has been adequate staff training on the colour coding scheme. This should extend to the rest of the employee’s during their induction with the usage of signs whenever necessary. One major benefit of these systems is that they are highly visual, and are easy to grasp. There are no language barriers. Identifying the different colours to be used in the various zones of the building will be a breeze, and sticking to them will further enhance operational efficiency, by preventing mix-up of the cleaning supplies.
The Superiority Of Spunlace
The spunlace technique -hydroentanglement- is employed for the production of nonwoven fabrics. High-speed jets of water are used to strike a web with fibres, forcing the fibres to knot about each other. The combined effect of the water turbulence and the sheer impact of the jet itself increases the interlacing action, causing displacement and different orientation of sections of fibres within the web. Since binders are not used, and there are no reinforcement points, the permeability and absorbent nature of the product is enhanced. First, the web gets compacted and prewetted. This eliminates air pockets within the structure. The water jets then come in, where the pressure gets increased from the first injectors all through to the last- reaching levels as high as 2200 psi. Energy from the jets goes into the rearrangement of the fibres within the web, and since the water jets also rebound against the substrate, the kinetic energy dissipated into the fibres. The roll in the processing setup has a vacuum that extracts the used water, that way there won’t be flooding, and it enhances the effectiveness of the jets in moving the fibres and causing entanglement. This occurs on both sides of the fabric. A dewatering device then removes the excess water, after which the fabric is dried.
The fabric that is yielded at the end of the process is popular for its conformability, the softness of the material, and the high strength of the structure. The softness of the material is due to the entangled structure being more compressible in comparison to the bonded alternatives, plus the alignment and mobility of the fibres of the material in the direction of the thickness. Aspects like dimensional stability bolster the drape and softness of the product. Spunlace fabric is used across the board, from surgical gowns and aprons, the operating tablecloths, for wound dressings and bandages in the medical niche; consumer products such as baby clothes, wet wipes; decorative elements as is the case with cloths used in car interiors, all through to the cleaning industry, where products like the Optima Proclean Spunlace All Purpose Cloths have gained prominence.
