The use of microfiber and steam technology may be seen as a novel cleaning method that can improve the outcome of cleaning.

Such new methods can have a significant impact on the transmission of multidrug-resistant organisms, provided systems are in place to ensure that the methodology is adhered to and that cleaning hours are adequate.
