What is a mop?
A mop for a mop-flounder is a rag that does the cleaning. Most of them have pockets - straps that are inserted into the latches and clamped by them. A low-quality fiber nozzle is immediately noticeable: its straps are short and made of synthetic material, which is difficult to fix with latches.
The wringer head is made from cotton, microfiber, mixed fibers, synthetic sponge and other materials. All mops have a different composition, length of fibers, which can serve different purposes.
Before purchasing, it is important to learn about the features of the nozzle: if you use it for other purposes, then there will be no result from cleaning. For example, acrylic products are used for sweeping the surface, but they are not suitable for washing.
Cotton nozzles for a mop-flounder are considered universal: they perfectly collect water and sweep well. But a stitched mop from this fabric has disadvantages: cotton is an organic material, so it rots and bacteria accumulate on it. Therefore, for wet cleaning they are created from synthetic materials. They do not rot, are wear-resistant, antibacterial, easy to clean from dirt, quickly absorb.
Some of the mops are treated with a product, which is why the floor is washedpossible without the use of chemicals. There are universal nozzles for the mop-flounder. Reviews about them are positive: housewives use them to clean the entire room, because the products are designed for washing and sweeping. At the same time, they are very pleased with the result of their work.
Another advantage is the ability to purchase a nozzle if it was not included. At the same time, manufacturers are improving not only products, but also additional devices. The features of "Easy Mop" include the versatility of a microfiber nozzle, which cleans surfaces with high quality, perfectly absorbs water, and picks up dirt and dust. The housewives appreciated the benefits of the product, as evidenced by numerous positive reviews.
When choosing a fiber nozzle, keep in mind that it must fit the holder. Therefore, it is preferable to buy a mop from the same company as the flooder for washing the floor. If the manufacturer is unknown or it is difficult to find the product, it is necessary to take into account the type of attachment of the mop to the stick. They are divided into 3 types:
- The plastic clip holder includes a quick-release latch clip to hold the stitched section of the rope mop.
- Rope mops are often screwed into place.
- Holder with latches on the extreme parts of mop. In the center of the floater there is a button needed to resize the stick. With this function, the product can be easily lowered into a bucket, moistened and squeezed out.
Universal mount is a fiber nozzle of the samemanufacturer, as the flaunder. Some holders create for a specific need. For example, a mop holder for cleaning in hard-to-reach places may have a stick bent at an angle of 90 degrees, so it requires a special mount. Multifunctional flat mops-flounders are in demand, which make it easier to clean.
Flounder or steam mop?
Due to the ease of cleaning, many housewives choose a flooder. Compared to steam mops and vacuum cleaners, they are affordable. In addition, devices that do not take up much space are the most functional.
Another advantage is the possibility of cleaning parquet. The device uses water sparingly. Therefore, such products are better than steam mops, because the latter spray hot water and do not completely eliminate it. Steam mops are also improving, they include many necessary functions. For example, "Mop X5" cleans and disinfects the surface with steam.
