2 Flat Damp Mop Pads Flex Head Clip-on With Metal Handle Cloths The Zephyr Microfiber System

3 No changing cleaner every 3 or 4 rooms. Mop wringing is eliminated (mops changed every room). Equipment is much lighter. Equipment is more ergonomic. Workers get less tired as they clean. Glass and Mirrors can be cleaned faster and dry without streaking. Microfiber Cleans With Less Time & Labor

4 Mops don’t catch on bed casters, chairs, IV stands, etc. Flat mops can be used to clean baseboards, walls and showers. Floors dry faster. Less slip and fall incidents. Because Microfiber removes the finest dust, floor finishes stay shiny longer. Microfiber Cleans With Less Time & Labor

5 Big savings on chemicals (up to 90%). On Mop Service – Microfiber easy to wash in- house. On Dustmops & Wet Mops – Lasts longer than traditional mops and dustmops. Microfiber cloths and mops have an average life of 200 – 500 washings. Saving money on reorders. Microfiber reduces labor hours. History shows reduced worker’s compensation claims. Microfiber Will Save A Hospital Money

6 Savings of 18 – 25 gallons of water per worker – per day (based on each worker cleaning a block of 20 rooms and dumping & refreshing water every 3 rooms) A staff of 100 would save at least 54,000 gallons per month Over a year, that’s 648,000 gallons of water saved Water Savings

7 Many hospitals send out loop mops to be laundered (approx. $800 to $2500 per month). Microfiber cloths and mops can be laundered in a standard washer/dryer. Do not exceed 165 degrees F when laundering. Standard detergent – no bleach – no fabric softeners. Tumble dry. Microfiber Can Save Money On Laundry

8 18” Microfiber MopMedium Loop Mop 1 = $7.99 each1 = $7.00 each 1 = 300 washings1 = 55 washings 300 washings = $7.995 = 275 washings 275 washings = $35.00 At 300 Washings (Microfiber’s Average Life) 1 – 18” Microfiber $7.99 = 5 – Loop $35.00 Per Mop Cost Comparison

9 Compare costs of using germicidal disinfectant the conventional way vs. the Microfiber method. Assume mop water is changed every 3 rooms (in isolation its changed every room). Assume a twenty (20) room area. Housekeeper must make seven trips to the custodial closet to dump and refill mopping solution. Annual Cost of Chemical Usage Microfiber vs Conventional Mopping

10 Using Microfiber, fresh germicide is used in every area. (No cross contamination) We compared chemical cost using data from a lower cost product (Caliber Neutra Fresh) and a higher cost product (3M, 23H). Annual Cost of Chemical Usage Microfiber vs Conventional Mopping

11 Germicide Cost Comparison 20 Patient Room Area for 1 year MicrofiberConventional Mop Caliber Neutra Fresh (4.5 cents per usable gallon) 2 $.045/gallon =. 09/day $.09/day x 365 days = $32.85/yr 21 $.045/gallon =.945/day $.945/day x 365 = $344.93/yr 3M 23H (12 cents per usable gallon) 2 $.12/gallon = $.24/day $.24/day x 365 days = $87.60/yr 21 $.12/gallon = $2.42/day $2.42/day x 365 days = $883.30/yr Conventional mopping is approximately 10 x more expensive. *Based on a study at Mercy General Hospital, Sacramento, CA *3 gallons per bucket x 7 buckets a day

12 Swinging a heavy mop can cause shoulder and arm injuries. Microfiber is lighter, weighs 3 lbs. Using a mop wringer can cause shoulder, arm or back problems. Microfiber eliminates mop wringing. Lifting a bucket of water 7 or 8 times a day can cause back injuries. A full bucket of solution can weigh 40 pounds or more. Microfiber cleaning eliminates this task. Saves on Injury Expenses

13 Workers compensation costs can be substantial. Experience has shown injury claims to housekeeping staff have been cut by approximately 40% after switching to Microfiber.* Safer because floors dry faster. Microfiber system leaves floors bone dry reducing slip and fall claims. *U.C. Davis Medical Center & Mercy Hospital, Sacramento, CA Saves On Injury Expenses

14 Eliminates the need to dump and refill germicidal cleaner in buckets (no trips to janitor’s closet). Eliminates mop wringing. Mops are lighter and easier to use, allowing operator to move faster with less effort. Floors dry faster –Quicker access to room –Fewer slips and falls Time Savings Using the Microfiber System

15 Time Savings Using Microfiber Time Saved Cleaning Rooms Experience has shown a minimuum of 3 minutes/room 3 min x 20 rooms =60 minutes Time Saved Refilling Mop Solution Average of 7 minutes/trip to the custodial closet 7 min x 7 trips = 45 minutes Total Time Saved Daily Using Microfiber = 105 Mins/Day Total Time Saved/Year 365 days x 105 mins = Hrs/Yr Based on studies conducted at University of CA, Davis Medical Center

16 Time Savings Using Microfiber Daily Labor-Per Person Cost Savings Assuming $8.00/hr labor cost 105 minutes x $8.00/hr = $14.00/day Yearly Labor-Per Person Cost Savings Assuming $8.00/hr labor cost $14.00/day x 365 days = $ /year A Hospital with 40 workers could potentially save $204,400 per year. These figures do not include any benefit savings. Based on studies conducted at University of CA, Davis Medical Center

17 Microfiber has been proven to save between 75 to 90% on germicide cost. Microfiber has been proven to save between 15 to 25% on labor costs. Microfiber mops last 5 times longer than conventional loop mops. Lower workers compensation claims. Microfiber Savings Summary

18 Microfiber virtually eliminates cross contamination carried by cleaning materials. Microfiber removes more dirt than conventional cleaning. Microfiber is more user friendly than conventional methods. Microfiber is more versatile than conventional cleaning methods. More tasks can be performed with the same tools. Microfiber is quieter, faster and easier on patients than traditional cleaning methods. Microfiber Performance Summary
