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
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.
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.
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
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 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.
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.
