Wet Mopping

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

General Mopping

  • Choose mops with high absorbency, release and durability. If laundering is available, launderable mops will be the most economical choice. Synthetic, rayon, and blended fiber mops with looped ends and woven tailbands offer the best performance and launderability.

Finish Mopping

  • Look for rayon and synthetic mops for high absorbency and release, and construction features such as tailbands and looped ends for better floor coverage and less streaking.
Launderability

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.

Absorbency

The absorbency of a mop refers to its ability to pick up and hold liquid. Higher levels allow faster floor drying times, leading to greater productivity and worker safety. Rayon and cotton yarns have the highest absorbency.

Release

Release is the ability of a mop to disperse liquid onto the floor or during wringing. Higher levels allow faster and more complete wringing, as well as more efficient application of cleaning solutions on the floor. Rayon and synthetic yarns offer the best release of liquids.

Durability

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.
