Specifying The Correct Cleaning Supplies – Mops
At Optima Pro Clean we understand the importance of having the correct cleaning equipment for the job. However with so many variants in weight and material available. It’s not always obvious which cleaning product is most appropriate for your customer’s needs.
Floor type, surface area, frequency of use and durability. These are all considerations which should be made before any purchasing decision. Understanding the difference and benefits of each mop will allow you to offer the correct solution, resulting in better service and happier customers.

Traditional socket mops such as our CXS12JM have a metal socket and are used with a wooden handle. However plastic sockets have become more popular with cleaning professionals with the introduction of colour coded cleaning regimes. The use of plastic sockets also provide improved options with regard to the type of handles they can be used with.
We supply a selection of different plastic sockets to suit your cleaning requirements:
- Swift- An easy fit socket for most handles. Push in wooden or create own thread by screwing in an aluminium handle.
- RHP- designed with all handles in mind (including excel) simply push handle in. No need to purchase new handles.
- Threaded- Fits our EAH colour coded aluminium handles by simply screwing it in.
Kentucky mops have much longer yarn and are particularly effective for cleaning large areas of flooring. Stitched in the middle using a polyester band which help to secure the fibres as well as maintain shape. All of our Kentucky mops are supplied complete with sewn in colour coded tags. This helps to identify their area of use and reduce the risk of cross contamination.
