Does Your Office Smell Like Wet Dog? Be Sure to Clean Your Cleaning Tools
Thursday, October 8, 2020
Even if you hire a commercial cleaning company to come in and deep clean your workplace, it’s likely you still have a mop and bucket handy for spills in the employee breakroom or elsewhere. If the mop head doesn’t get properly cleaned or changed out on a regular basis...you may walk into your office one day to it smelling like someone gave their German Shepherd a bath overnight.
Cleaning your cleaning tools tends to be something that’s forgotten. Using an old ill-cleaned mop head can lead to an unpleasant musk that lasts for days, and nobody wants to endure that in their place of work.
Cotton String Mops are the common picture that comes to mind when you hear the word “mop”. These mops tend to be the main offender when it comes to the damp smell. In order to keep these types of mops clean and useful for long amounts of time it is very important to thoroughly clean them after every use, as they acquire bacteria very quickly.
Green Mountain recommends rinsing the mop extremely well with hot water after every use, then ringing it out as best as you can and leave it to dry (strings hanging down) in a well ventilated area or outside if possible. NEVER leave a mop in its bucket overnight. This is essential if you want your mop to stay fresh, considering these kind of mops handle that dirtiest floors.
