Although not every BSC has jumped on the disposable microfiber bandwagon, Frey believes that this system is here to stay.

“Microfiber has a positive charge to it and debris is a negative, so using that positive energy, and positive water, that comes into play, too,” says Frey. “It’s a lot neater.”

Cummins hasn’t abandoned their traditional loop mops, though. In addition to industrial clients, Frey also services banking and medical facilities.

“Larger mops are good for kitchens that would have a lot of grease, or clinics that would have a lot of blood, so there are certain areas that you would use a [traditional] mop, but I would say 75 percent of the time, we are using microfiber [mops],” says Frey.

For those companies who are afraid to take the plunge, Frey acknowledges that change is always hard, but in this case, the only potential drawback is the high upfront costs.

Microfiber, first launderable and now disposable, has been revolutionizing the cleaning industry for the last decade. It’s not going away.

“It’s a great invention, a great piece of technology to have,” says Frey.
