Tip of the Week:
Mop Basics: Which Mop Head is Right For Me?

There's a huge variety in mop heads, so the following information should help you choose the right mop for you.

Did you know that certain yarns are designed for specific tasks? By selecting the proper yarn, you'll be able to achieve maximum efficiency.

  • Cotton mop heads offer good absorption and are good for general use.
  • Blends are durable. Most are colorized, which helps to keep mops separate if they're used for different purposes. Good for contractors who have a lot of hard floor accounts.
  • Synthetic mop heads fight bacteria, mold and mildew, and also offer superior strength. The disadvantage is that they're more expensive and not as absorbent. Good for clean rooms and rough surfaces.
  • Rayon mop heads offer quick absorption and dry quickly. They're also mildew resistant and don't leave as much lint as cotton mop heads. The disadvantage is they have less liquid retention. Good for applying floor finishes and disinfectants.

Cut-End Mop Heads are pretty popular because they're the least expensive type of mop head. However, because the ends are cut, they tend to leave lint, fray and unravel with each use. Plus you can't launder them, which means you'll be replacing your mop heads more often.

Loop-End Mop Heads are more efficient because they stand up to heavy use, don't fray or tangle, and leave little or no lint. You can launder loop-end mop heads so they'll last much longer. They're more expensive initially, but will save you money in the long run.
