When it comes to cleaning floors, mops are an essential tool for the job. From small jobs to big messes, there are many different kinds of flooring, and so many different types of mops that can be used on each type. Microfiber mops are extremely popular because they’re such versatile tools, and they make a great choice in homes with pets or kids, as well as businesses like restaurants or schools. Here’s what you need to know about microfiber mops, including their benefits and uses, where to find them, and how to get the most out of them!
What are microfiber mops?
You may be familiar with traditional, string mops (like the Lola® Cotton Deck Mop and the Lola® Cotton Floor Wet Mop with Scuff Remover™), which are often made of cotton or synthetic fibers and require cleaning by hand. While these tools are still very useful, a newer option is available for those who want an even easier approach: microfiber mops. These convenient tools eliminate cleaning solutions altogether; instead, they use strands of looped microfibers that reach deep into grout lines and other spots that can be difficult to clean otherwise. Though somewhat similar in appearance, microfiber mops are not the same as common dust mop options; microfiber strings have way more absorbency than cotton strands and can hold up to 12 times their weight in water alone!
What makes them different and why are they effective?
Microfiber mops are capable of collecting dust, grime and bacteria without using harmful chemicals. This makes them ideal for use on finished floors made from natural products such as wood or tile because it doesn’t add any extra cleaning agent that can strip their finish. Microfiber mop heads also feature a spongy material which means they pick up more dirt than cloth versions, making them an efficient and cost-effective choice for keeping your home clean. Their softness also means you won’t have to worry about scuffing your floors when mopping which is especially important if you own an expensive hardwood floor.
How can they make you more productive?
You should always make sure your work surfaces are clean before starting, but if you have a microfiber mop, there’s no need to ever take out a broom. With a Swiffer® Sweeper® Comparable Wet & Dry Sweeper Floor Mop Starter Kit by Lola® (with readily available wet and dry refills that you can stock up on), you'll have an effective tool for cleaning hard surfaces because it won’t leave streaks behind. When dust and dirt land on microfiber strands, they simply roll right off.
How can they save your time and energy?
A well-maintained home is everyone’s dream, but not everyone has ample time to clean their homes. If you are looking for a more efficient way of cleaning your floors, microfiber mops are a good choice. With the Lola® Microfiber Spritz n' Mop, you'll have a spray-and-mop mechanism that you can use directly on your floors without leaving a trail of dirt behind. Aside from being easy to use, you can simply use water for its spray capability—it also won’t scratch your floors!
Mopping floors is a chore. Even if you love your home, it can be hard to keep clean when you’re busy with work and life. That’s why it makes sense to get a floor cleaning tool that can do some of the work for you. Microfiber mops are one option that makes getting rid of dirt and grime fast and easy, leaving you more time in your day for what matters most!
