How to Tell When It’s Time to Replace Your Cleaning Supplies

You can’t clean if your tools are beyond their use cycle. By that, I mean your tools are dirty, damaged or otherwise not iReplace Your Cleaning Suppliesn working condition. While it’s
impossible to predict every type of damage that might occur to your cleaning supplies, here are a few rules of thumb as to when you should replace your cleaning supplies:

  1. Bristles are pancaked, bent or broken
  2. You are no longer able to remove soil (even after cleaning the product, it’s still dirty)
  3. Handles are bent or broken
  4. Mopheads are soiled or stands are broken and/or falling off

Quality cleaning supplies will last you for quite a while however, just like anything that gets used on a regular basis; cleaning supplies are subject to wear and tear.

There are steps you can take from the moment you get new cleaning supplies to ensure they last as long as possible:

  • Mop Bucket CleaningRinse out mop bucket, synthetic brooms, hi-lo deck scrub brushes, squeegees and synthetic brushes with clean water
  • Hang tools for storage using a tool holder to prevent mold and mildew growth and reduce the risk of damaging bristles
  • Place dirty mopheads in laundry net to wash. Place microfiber pads in a separate laundry net to wash. Microfiber should always be washed separately from cotton/synthetic mopheads and towels that could lint. This will extend the life of your microfiber.
  • Don’t use fabric softener when washing mopheads and microfiber. Fabric softener can leave a film that reduces absorbency, thus reducing the useful life of your mophead.
  • Hang mopheads and microfiber pads to dry fully before returning to storage to prevent mold and mildew growth. While hanging dry is recommended, if you do need to use a clothes dryer, keep it on the lowest possible setting (cool heat, delicate) as too high heat can cause damage.
