A mop is a mop, right? Not exactly. There are several common types of mops for cleaning hard floors, the two most common being, string mops and flat mops. String mops are the most traditional mop type and are a staple in many of our homes. However, string mops are often used with improper procedures leaving your floors dirty and full of bacteria. Flat mops such as the Mop PRO are a great alternative to string mops. Most notably, they use reusable and machine washable microfibre cloths/pads providing a better, more hygienic way to clean your home.
