Are mop robots the future?

The technology of automatic lawn mowing or vacuum cleaning by means of mowing or vacuum robots does not, of course, stop at mopping, although the technological development of mopping robots leaves something to be desired.

Various wiper tests have shown that the brand, but the nature of the floor wiper should ultimately be decisive. Because a living situation in a large single-family house including basement, attic, garden and garage cannot be compared with a 50 m² apartment with much smaller rooms. However, large areas do not always mean that it has to be a professional floor mop. But let's go through the individual components of the floor mop at this point, step by step, so that you can make the right choice in the end.

3.1. How long should the stem length be in meters?

At this point, we advise you to look specifically for models with a telescopic handle. Because this gives you the convenience of being able to adjust the length of the handle at any time. For example, if you want to mop a basement where the ceiling height does not match the normal room height, simply shrink the handle and continue working as comfortably as possible.

If, on the other hand, you want to at least roughly clean a hard-to-reach window, simply lengthen the stem until you reach the plastered surface. You should also think about how you can flexibly involve the whole family in the housework. With a telescopic handle, the floor wipers can be adjusted to the body sizes of father, mother and children with just one movement.

We therefore recommend that you do not commit yourself to a certain stem length, but prefer the flexibility.

3.2. A swivel joint increases the handiness of the floor mop

A practical telescopic handle and a washable cover make your work easier.

A floor mop with a swivel joint is a model that is expressly not a mop with a permanently mounted mop head. Make sure to choose models with a swivel joint, because this way you can reach even tricky corners without much effort. A wall-hung toilet can be moved under by a slight turn of the handle, while you can effortlessly ensure hygiene under every sofa and armchair.

In the case of variants without a swivel joint, you will find it difficult to reach these areas, which permanently creates additional work for the housework. Floor wiper tests have also shown that there are hardly any models on the market without a swivel joint. With particularly cheap floor mops from discounters such as Aldi or Lidl, you can often get bargains that are also of good quality in terms of equipment. With offers on the Internet, however, you should pay close attention to the properties of the individual floor mop.

3.3. Choose the width of the mop head and covers wisely

Basically, with the width of the mop head in cm, you can assume that you will generally effectively clean a larger area in a short time with large and wide models. Nevertheless, choose your new floor mop wisely, because a very long and wide mop head is often heavier, which in turn can have an adverse effect on handiness. The larger cover also absorbs more water and, as a result, more weight, which can also be impractical.

You should therefore adapt the size of the mop head to your premises: According to practical tests of floor wipers, models with a width of 30 to 40 cm are particularly suitable. When it comes to covers, you should ideally be able to choose between different variants. Because tiled floors and joints often require a somewhat coarser material form than, for example, a parquet floor, which can often only be freed from dirt when it is only slightly damp. It also helps when cleaning the covers if they can be cleaned regularly in the washing machine. If the cover is machine washable, this will make your work much easier.

3.4. The additional functions should correspond to the type of floor mop

Spin function or wringing device - find your floor cleaning system with us!

If you have chosen a mop with a fixed mop head with tassels, you should by no means do without a so-called wring device. This is conveniently placed directly on the cleaning bucket, so that the wet tassels can be rinsed out in it. Practical spinning functions, which can remove dirt and moisture from the wiper even more effectively, are particularly efficient. This technology is particularly recommended if you only want to clean the floors with a low level of moisture. But watch out: Most brands specifically rely on systems that only work within their own brand world.

You should therefore clarify all of the points mentioned for yourself in advance and only then make the decision in favor of a Leifheit floor mop, a Hara floor mop, a Swiffer floor mop or a Vileda floor mop. A Leifheit floor mop or a Leifheit mop often work via a centrifugal system. But not only the Leifheit wiper, also Vileda floor wipers and other manufacturers offer sophisticated wringing and spinning solutions.

The floor wiper with a sponge is also particularly practical: The devices work with a spray function and a floor wiper sponge, where only the required amount of moisture is applied directly to the floor at certain points.

4. How do you choose the right floor mop from the floor mop test?

4.1. A good floor mop combines several properties

If you are not looking for a professional floor wiper for very large areas, you should choose between a model with or without a spray function. The properties of both types of floor wipers shows our direct floor wiper comparison:

Make your final decision dependent on whether you only want to clean small areas with very smooth floors, or whether you want to keep varied surfaces clean in numerous rooms. Both systems have their advantages and disadvantages here.

4.2. Cleaning with the floor wiper is easier by hand

If you are thinking of simply taking a large rag and wrapping it around the end of a broom, we'll put it here again the pros and cons of a spray mop to the heart:

  • no bucket of cleaning water required
  • Hands remain largely dry
  • Can also be used in tricky corners thanks to the swivel joint
  • Water and detergents are used sparingly
  • Acquisition costs a little higher

5. Why is the cover the most important accessory for the floor mop?

Look for a specific floor wiper system with which the covers can be machine washed if possible. Ideally, there are covers with different structures that can be used to clean almost any floor with ease. Determine in advance, what individual covers of a certain brand cost to buy from Rossmann and Co, before a supposed bargain quickly turns into expensive fun.
