Your Guide to SSS Wet Mops

PRODUCT QUALITY

All SSS mopping products are manufactured to high quality standards. They are specifically designed and manufactured for use in industrial and commercial maintenance applications – tough products for your tough applications.

INITIAL COST vs. VALUE RECEIVED

The dollars you spend on material and supplies are only about 10% of your overall cleaning budget. An extra dollar spent wisely on quality supplies will often save you that dollar many times over in LABOR expenses.

Looped-End Wet Mops vs. Cut-End Wet Mops

Cut-end mops appear to be a better buy as the initial cost is lower, but because of the looped-end mop's longevity and durability, it is a better overall value. Inuse studies have shown that ONE SSS Super-Sorb Looped-End Mop will outlast

EIGHT 4-ply Cotton Cut-End Mops. Plus, the Super-Sorb Mop cleans twice the area in the same amount of time. If your staff is mopping 5,600 sq.ft./day you will save about

$2,600 (labor savings) annually by changing from a cut-end to a looped-end mop!

Looped-end mops with tailbands cover a wider surface area evenly.

Cut-end mops offer narrow, uneven coverage

.

About Mops

Wet mops are available with several time-saving options – each suited to a particular need. Consider these options to get the best value for the intended application.

Sta-Flat & Tailbands

Sta-Flat fixtures give the mop great maneuverability and performance. This simple design helps the mop lay flat on the floor to improve coverage. Detachable, interchangeable screw-on handles are used with Sta-Flat fixtures.

Tailbands prevent tangling and reduce snagging on furniture and obstacles. Mops with tailbands provide much greater surface coverage than ordinary cut-end mops, thus cutting your labor costs substantially.

Yarn Ply

Triple S offers mops in various yarn plies. Most mops are made with 4-ply or 8-ply yarn.

Lower ply yarn will handle light to medium duty mopping and is excellent for general maintenance. A higher ply yarn handles the most abrasive surface with ease. When choosing higher plies you receive the added strength, but sacrifice a degree of absorbency.

MICROFIBERS

Green Clean: Microfibers

The US Environmental Protection Agency published a fact sheet on Environmental Best Practices for

Health Care Facilities based on a test they conducted regarding Microfiber Mops in Hospitals.

According to this study, the microfiber program resulted in three measurable economic benefits:

1.) 60% lifetime cost savings for mops

2.) 95% reduction in chemical costs associated with mopping tasks

3.) 20% labor savings per day

The EPA also reported a significant cost savings from decreased water use and reduced workers’ compensation claims with the use of microfiber products.
