Products that improve indoor air quality are important in facilities such as schools where health has proven to affect student attendance, which then impacts state and federal funding. To protect revenue, it’s in school officials’ best interest to prevent illness, asthma attacks and other health problems that can lead to increased absenteeism.

Because of its natural static charge, microfiber supports the push for improved indoor air quality by trapping dust, particulates and allergens. It can be used wet or dry to dust, or clean almost any surface, from desktops and countertops to ceiling fixtures and lunch tables. Ultimately, these benefits will positively impact building occupants’ health.

Because microfiber eliminates or reduces chemical usage, it can help improve indoor air quality by lessening the amount of harmful volatile organic compounds a worker or building occupant may inhale. Microfiber also captures more soil and doesn’t leave behind lint or dust like cotton and paper can, thus improving IAQ.
