Cleaning and Maintenance Management, one of the most common causes of repetitive motion injuries within the cleaning industry is mopping, which is why a microfibre mop is so beneficial. In addition to the unique benefits offered by the spin mop, any microfibre flat mop means that overall, the mop is much lighter, and the user doesn’t need to carry around litres of water containing a cleaning solution.

Through the spinning process you can use it across all applications from very dry cleaning of delicate flooring through to very wet for disinfection processes. The UltraSpin Mini by Vileda is adaptable for use in all small areas, and is particularly useful in cafes and restaurants where spills may be occurring on a regular basis. Cautious of the importance of colour coding for cleaning, the mops are available in both red and blue.
