Welcome to the second edition of my guide to mopping! Yes, we filled up two blogs with infromation on mops! The guide to mopping (part 1) covered the “bundle of strings on the end of a stick” type mops. In this blog we will cover the most interesting (a matter of opinion!) type of mop of all. The flat mop.
an implement consisting of a bundle of thick loose strings attached to a handle, used for wiping floors or other surfaces.
Well, the dictionary makes mops seem like pretty simple objects. In the cleaning industry they can be found in almost every cleaning cupboard and for frequent cleaning of hard floors, there are very few alternatives to a good old-school mop and bucket. However, you'd be surprised how many alternatives there are out there and how important it can be to stock the right one for you!
But surely re-stocking your mops can't be THAT complicated, right?
When it comes to ordering your janitorial supplies its often hard to work out which of the hundreds of options is right for you. Who knew there could be so many varieties of plastic bag!? Even the simplest of decisions can get very complicated, making the wrong one could leave you with a split bag and a pile of waste covering your floor! We want to make your experience as stress free as possible, so we have put together a little guide to bin liners!

In this series of blogs I am going to deal with these processes beginning with 'contolling soil' and will outline the four most common methods of carpet cleaning used in the UK, much of the information is taken for documents commissioned by the Jangro Group. This is not meant to be a comprehensive guide to carpet cleaning, rather an over view of the pros and cons of each particular method . The objective being to help readers choose the most appropriate method of cleaning for their particular carpet and level of soilage.
