Microfibre mop range can be washed 800 times

The new Taski JM Ultra range of ultra microfibre mops from Diversey combines floor cleaning performance with extended lifetime and improved ergonomics compared with some traditional tools. The mops are guaranteed for 800 washes and offer excellent microbial removal to promote high-performance daily cleaning and hygiene with reduced cost-in-use in healthcare and other demanding applications.

The mops are manufactured using a new specification of ultra microfibre with finer fibres and a more open structure than, according to the manufacturer, has ever been used in this type of cleaning tool. The construction of the fibres ensures each mop has double the surface area compared with previous models. This means more dirt is picked up more easily each time the mop passes over the floor for efficient cleaning.

Individual mops washed daily deliver consistent cleaning performance for 26 months. When used in a typical three-day healthcare rotation system each set of microfibre will last for six and a half years. This results in reduced contribution to overall cleaning costs and more efficient return on investment over longer periods.

Specially designed puffer sponges create a dual layer water management system inside the mop. This allows more solution to be absorbed and evenly dispersed across the surface of the floor for improved cleaning efficiency. The increased polyester fibre content also helps to reduce friction so that the mops glide across the floor more easily. This means that cleaning operatives can work more ergonomically with less stress and fatigue. Overall productivity is improved and there is reduced risk of injury to cleaning operatives.

JM Ultra mops are supplied in the industry standard colours: green for dry use, red and blue for wet use. They can be used on their own or as part of an integrated cleaning regime with complementary tools and equipment.
