Dust Mopping

There are several important factors to consider when choosing a dust mop. Use the guidelines below to choose the best dust mop for your floor care needs.

General Dust Mopping

Choose mops with high dust pick up and durability. If laundering is available, launderable mops will be the most economical choice. Twisted loop mop heads with reinforced stitching and slip-on/slide-off backing offer the best performance and launderability.

Launderability Durability Dust Pick Up
The launderability of a mop is based on the number of commercial washing and drying cycles it can withstand before the construction of the mop is degraded or the performance declines. Synthetic and blended fiber mops have the highest levels of launderability. The durability of a mop is a measure of how long it will perform before needing to be replaced. Synthetic and blended fiber mops are the most durable.

Mops with antimicrobial fibers have greater durability because they inhibit the bacterial growth that causes mop odor and discoloration.

Dust pick up is the ability of a mop to remove dust and dirt from the floor surface. Blended fiber and synthetic mops have the highest degree of dust pick up.

Mop Construction Features

Twisted Loops Looped Ends Cut Ends Reinforced Stitching Backing Design
Highly effective at capturing dust and dirt. Premium twisted loops are less prone to snags, frays, and unraveling during cleaning and laundering. Reduced fraying and de-plying for better durability and longer product life. More effective than cut-end mops. Economical construction for general purpose dusting. Reinforced, double-needle stitching at key "wear" points increases product life. Slip-on/Slide-off backing allows quick, easy setup for standard or breakdown mop frames.
Frames & Handles Slip-On Backing vs. Half-Tie Backing
Snap-On Wire Dust Mop Frames and Handles make removal of used dust mops easier and cleaning more efficient. Slip-on backing decreases setup time and increases product durability. Mops that use half-tie backing are less cost effective that those that use slip-on backing due to damage from torn ties.
