If you ever asked yourself this question, you are reding the right article. Even if a correct answer doesn’t exist, we want to help you better understand the differences between them, trying to dispel some clichés.
Cleaning the floors with a cloth is one of the oldest techniques, used for centuries to better polish castles and more: the most romantic people will certainly remember the dear Cinderella struggling with the big house to be cleaned.
In the modern variant, Cinderella should no longer sit with her knees on the floor of the house, but she could use our IBRA deck scrub, which has been used for decades to rub the most stubborn stains. The latest Made in FASS evolution is instead our “deck scrub with cloth grip”, an innovative brush characterized by the special rubber holes to lock the rag. It’s the more practical and comfortable model.
Although the use of the cloth has therefore become more comfortable thanks to the help of these practical tools, such as our brushes, however, it remains an extremely tiring technique due to the strong pressure required. A lot of people tend to prefer “deck scrub + cloth” thanks to the possibility of washing them in the washing machine, but our mop heads have the same feature.
Actually Mops are more used than floor cloths; they represent a technological upgrade respect to the traditional clothes for the following reasons:
1) Practicality and ergonomics. It is almost always accompanied by a bucket + wringer kit, which allows a much more comfortable and effective use
2) Variety of materials. There are an infinite range of MOPs, each one for a specific type of surface and taste; see our range of SUPER 3 and SUPER 4 multimaterial MOPs, passing through our NATURAL GREEN MICROFIBER MOP, up to TWISTMOP and COTTON MOP.
3) No contact with detergents and chemical agents. The use of the handle and wringer allows you to avoid contact of your hands with the cleaning area.
At this point it is clear that MOP is a technological evolution respect to clothes in general and it is certainly more suitable for all the people who don’t want to spend extra-time and energy in floor cleanings, while the floor cloth (a timeless classic) is loved by traditionalists and certainly guarantees great result, but with a great physical effort
