Construction: Helen's 20” Microfiber Wet Mop Pad is a simple and effective lint free mop pad constructed from looped polyester / polyamide blend microfiber yarn and looped polyester. The looped polyester is added to help the mop glide across the floor; too much microfiber would make it next to impossible to push across the floor. The microfiber / polyester face yarn is sewn to a Velcro ® style loop backing with overlock stitching on the edges. Between the microfiber face yarn and the Velcro ® style backing is a 3mm foam core. The purpose of the foam core is to help the microfiber mop pad keep its shape throughout the life of the pad and to store liquids (water, disinfectant, cleaner) which will help emulsify dust, dirt and grease for effective cleaning.
Uses: 20” Microfiber Wet Mop Pads are great for cleaning any hard surface floors. The size of these mop pads make them an effective tool for a quick and easy way to clean your kitchen and hardwood floors at home. They work great for cleaning contract companies and housekeepers who need to get through their cleaning jobs quickly and hassle free. For healthcare applications, the microfiber wet mop pads are an essential tool for preventing cross contamination in patient rooms. The density of the yarn and microscopic size of individual fibers allow the pad to reach into the depressions and tiny crevices on the floor surface and remove over 99% of the bacteria present.
Method: Our 20” Microfiber Wet Mop Pads work great with just warm water but, for certain applications you may want to use the mop pad with chemical cleaners or disinfectants. Depending on the size of the job and the amount of mop pads you intend to use, you can simply wet the mop pad in the sink or you may need to use a mop bucket. You want the wet mop pad damp, not a dripping, so wring it out. Place the microfiber mop pad on the floor, blue side down, then place any of our Velcro® style hook and loop microfiber mop handles on top of the pad. For wet mopping work backwards through the room while moving the mop side to side, twist the handle to turn the mop, almost in a figure eight motion, so the same edge of the mop is always in front. This will prevent dust and dirt from being left behind.
