Unger's Microfiber Mops & Mop Systems for Superior Cleaning
Keep floors cleaner and safer with Unger's selection of floor cleaning tools, microfiber flat mops, microfiber string mops, and floor mopping systems. Built to exceed cotton mops in longevity and cleanliness, microfiber technology eliminates the need for heavy, outdated and germ-spreading traditional cleaning mop systems.
A comprehensive flat mop system makes a significant difference in your facility's health and your floor's appearance. Studies demonstrate that flat mop systems, especially when used with microfiber mop heads, optimize efficiency, enhance floor safety and provide savings in labor and materials.
Microfiber Mops vs. Cotton String Mops
Microfiber mops are the most economical option when compared to a cotton string mop, when you take into account your total cleaning costs – time, staffing, loss of work, etc. Additionally, a study published by the American Journal of Infection Control, concluded that microfiber mops also remove far more microbes than standard cotton string mops. The study found that using a microfiber mop with standard detergent can remove up to 95% of microbes, while only 68% of microbes were removed with standard detergent and a cotton string mop.
Where to Use Microfiber Mops
Unger’s selection of microfiber flat mops is perfect for light to medium duty applications. Our low moisture, high absorbency flat mop head is suitable for marble, linoleum, wood, and vinyl floors with streak-free results.
Preventing Cross Contamination with Microfiber Mops
To help control and prevent cross-contamination when cleaning floors, Unger’s microfiber mops incorporate a visual color-coding system designed to designate specific cleaning zones. Using an intuitive visual coding system improves performance, enables better sanitation, and creates cleaner facilities.
How to Use a Professional Microfiber Mop
To get the most out of a microfiber mop system, begin by outlining the space to be cleaned. Then starting in the corner furthest from the exit, walk backwards creating an overlapping "S" motion with the mop. Adjusting the height of the mop’s telescoping pole to the individual user is important to avoid strain and maintain proper form.
How to Clean Microfiber Mop Heads
Microfiber mops are easy to clean when adhering to the following guidelines:
- Place in the washing machine
- Use hot water
- Avoid bleach and fabric softener
- Rinse before drying
- Dry on low heat (temperatures above 140 degrees and dryer sheets can damage the microfibers)
One string mop head normally lasts around 15-30 washes, while microfiber heads usually have a span of about 150-200 washes. Microfiber is more durable than cotton, therefore it lasts longer.
