The disgusting truth about mops is that they fail to effectively remove harmful bacteria, but there’s more. Mops also breed bacteria in their musty fibers, and they leave behind a slipping hazard that injures people and drives up insurance premiums. Enough already. Get the facts and Stop the Mop!
These facts about mops may be disgusting, but they are the true findings of Dr. Charles Gerba, the Toxics Use Reduction Institute at UMASS, and our studies here at Kaivac.
We totally got rid of mops. They don’t do a good job; they’re not cost effective. New technology has made mopping obsolete. I find it amazing that mops are still being used as much as they are. Why would I make my employee use a dirty, nasty mop? The dignity of the worker matters.
