  • Correct Procedure for Mopping with Microfiber

    Step 1:

    Wringing Microfiber MopsIf you’re microfiber mopping your home or other relatively small areas with one or two mops it’s best to wet the mop in a sink or small bucket then roll it up and wring it out by hand. If you want to use a disinfectant or cleaner add the concentrate to water in a clean sink or bucket, then wring the mop out by hand. The mop doesn’t need to be soaking wet, just damp.




    Rolled Microfiber MopsIf you have a bigger job, such as microfiber mopping hospital patient rooms, classrooms, etc., it’s best to pre moisten several mops at a time. Pads can be rolled in a 15 qt container (holds approx. 20 pads). Disinfectant solution can then be added at a rate of 4-5 oz. per pad. With this method pads should be allowed to wick for several hours. Pads can also be dampened in a bucket and wrung out before use.


    Step 2:

    Microfiber Mop on FramePlace the unrolled wet mop or dust mop on the floor you intend to clean with the blue (wet) or green (dust) side down. Then place the handle and frame on to the pad, the frame should be centered on the pad so about an inch of the pad is overlapping the frame on each side.


    Step 3:

    Mopping with MicrofiberMoving the mop through the room in a systematic way, mop the entire floor surface. Use what is known as “leading edge cleaning” meaning always have the same end of the mop moving forward. In other words, as you walk backwards through the room working 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.


    Step 4:

    When finished using the mop lift it up and gently separate the mop from the frame. Be careful not to let the dirt and debris that you just mopped up fall back onto the floor. Use a damp microfiber towel to pick up any dirt and debris on the floor where you finished mopping.
