Single-use vs re-useable products

In terms of hygiene, using a quality, single-use microfiber cleaning product is the best option, as up to 99.99% of bacteria is removed in the cleaning process and the mop/cloth is then disposed of. Cross contamination risks are greatly reduced when a high percentage of microorganisms are removed from surfaces.

Durable products, even if used one mop/cloth per room/task are not as hygienic as they require extra handling (storage after use, laundry, process). If these processes are not managed well, hygiene issues can arise.

When you assess your site and processes, it helps to understand your overall objective in terms of cleaning and disinfecting. Vileda Professionals trained experts can consult in this process.


Other factors can also affect the choice including:
  • Practicalities of your site: Do you have access to laundry?
  • Costs: Evaluate differences in cost for your facility with single-use vs. re-useable
  • Type of contaminants that needs to be removed: Does one option work better for your contamination needs?
  • Who is using the system: Take into account the users needs when determining what system will work best in your facility

At Vileda Professional we have the knowledge and expertise to offer you solutions you can trust.
