Over the years I have bought more wet mops than I can count. The head crumbles, or is discontinued, and I banish the handle to the garage. There exists a virtual army of Broom Handles. I had been buying sponge mops because I was used to them. Once the sponge head crumbled, I decided to buy a new mop. Which one should I choose?
I had several requirements. First, I needed a mop that could be washed. Second, I wanted one which was easy to use. Third, I wanted a brand that was easy on the budget.
Sarah Aguirre describes mop options in her own About.Com website article, “Types of Mops.” Flat mops were among my options. This mop includes a head that holds a disposable pad. Aguirre thinks flat mops are good for corners, but “they might have trouble scrubbing stuck-on food particles.” I found this to be true of my flat mop and, though it is possible to use, I use it mostly for touch-up cleaning.

Will a thick wooden handle and wet mop head be overweight for the busy staff to make use of? Since wet mop heads absorb water, they could weigh more than dry mop heads. According to which style you happen to be using, weight could be something to consider when comparing products.
Using a mop head or mop frame that matches your mop handle is imperative. By utilizing the wrong frame, it is actually possible that your mop is not going to work as effectively or get damaged. Take into account that people who have smaller hands might not be as comfortable holding a mop handle having a thicker diameter. However, thinner poles will not be as structurally sturdy as thicker poles. Determine which mop will continue to work best for you and your employees and ensure the handle are at an appropriate diameter.
Care And Maintenance – Mop handles can house bacteria that induce odors, stains, and make a harmful environment for that user if not properly maintained. Prohibit the expansion of bacteria with a model that has an antimicrobial layer of protection. It is prudent to wash mop heads frequently after use. Using this method, the chances of bacteria growth are minimized.
Handles with reusable mop heads should be hung and left to dry in a ventilated area. If there is no ventilation, a wet mop will continue to be wet and harmful bacteria will begin to grow. If this takes place, usually do not bleach the xzfkun handle, frame, or head, as this could cause erosion and shorten the lifespan of the entire mop. Instead, thoroughly clean the mop with soapy water. If bacteria or mold growth is clearly visible, you may want to dispose of the mop. Cleaning your mops after every use is one method of increasing their longevity.
