Microfiber Mops Contribute to LEED
There may not be a third-party green certification available for microfiber mops, but these products are environmentally friendly — and contribute to credits towards the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Existing Buildings Operations and Maintenance program.
Under Indoor Environmental Quality Credit 3.1: Green Cleaning - High Performance Cleaning Program, one requirement to earn this point is to use “sustainable cleaning materials, products and equipment” which includes microfiber mops.
Microfiber mops are considered green because they use less water and chemicals than traditional cotton string mops to clean hard floors. Some products even are constructed from sustainable resources, for example bamboo handles or PET plastics made from recycled plastic bottles.
