Microfiber Flat Mops Keep Floors Cleaner and Healthier

Have you ever wondered why the tile floors in your office or restrooms have lost their shine? Maybe your floors have aged and lost their luster. Or, more commonly, it’s just the way they’re being mopped.

Many janitorial companies use a conventional string mop and bucket system to clean floors. However, experience (and studies) have shown that this system is inherently flawed.

That’s because string mops leave a film of dirt behind every time they’re used. And, over the years this film builds up and becomes increasingly difficult to remove. So, every time a string mop is pushed across your floors, they’re actually getting dirtier!

Well, the good news is that string mops can be replaced with an inexpensive, microfiber flat mop system that is 4 times as effective in removing dirt and germs. In fact, the EPA and Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospitals (JCAHO), recommend replacing string mops with the newer microfiber flat mop system whenever possible.

The EPA and JCAHO consider the microfiber flat mop system as a best practice in environmental cleaning in the hospital setting. That’s because the health and safety of patients and hospital staff are paramount. And, they’ve seen the results of studies supporting the superiority of microfiber flat mop systems over traditional string mops.

There is incontrovertible evidence that microfiber flat mops outperform. Here are some of the reasons why:
