As a business—regardless of what industry you work in—you know that cleanliness is important. Having a clean office provides a comfortable environment in which your employees can work, and helps your customers and clients to see your store, restaurant, or other space as a place where they want to do business. Having a dirty environment can also have a negative impact on employee morale or affect the safety of those in your facility.
One of the best ways to keep your business clean is having the appropriate cleaning materials, which means getting the right towels to clean up everything from minor spills to major stains. Here are four common options that business owners can choose from.
Terry Cloth Towels
The basic towel is useful for all kinds of cleaning applications around your business, from wiping up small spills to cleaning bathrooms, break rooms, and more. If you operate a business like an auto repair shop, they also make great towels for wiping up grease and keeping your technicians’ hands clean. They are available in a variety of sizes, and can be cut to whatever custom sizes you need.
Some jobs are better cleaned up with a disposable towel, particularly if it is something that would ruin your reusable towels, or something that is potentially hazardous or toxic and you need to be able to easily get rid of the cleaning supplies. In other situations you might need to clean surfaces that are too delicate for traditional towels, or where contaminants on a towel might get smeared on windows, tile, or vehicles.
These are a popular choice for food and drink service companies, and can often be found in the kitchen and around the bar of local restaurants. The size of these towels can vary but they are usually around 15×17, or a little larger at 16×19 inches. The superior absorbency of bar towels makes them the perfect choice for cleaning up food service, drinks, or maintenance like grease and oil.
Microfiber towels are a plush alternative to traditional towels, and offer several advantages for cleaning tasks at home, in a garage, or inside your office. The fibers inside a microfiber towel have space between the threads, allowing the towel to absorb more moisture, and they dry much faster than standard towels. Plus their non-abrasive design allows you to use them for a variety of purposes, and you can clean them over and over to save money.
Towels come in a variety of shapes and sizes, made from many different materials, and can provide you with the cleaning power you need for a sparkling office space.
