I recently received an email asking if I would like to review a spray mop from WizMops. This is spray mop that is suitable for wet & dry cleaning of hardwood, laminate, wood, vinyl, tiles and glass. It is safer to use than an electric steam mop (I do have a steam mop but haven’t wanted to use it on the vinyl flooring in case it melts the glue underneath). As I had just had new kitchen flooring laid a few days previously I agreed and waited for it to arrive.
When the parcel arrived, I was a bit underwhelmed as the package was extremely light (the mop weighs approx 800g). My first thoughts were than this mop was not going to be any use at all!
On opening the box, I found a mop that need to be assembled and consisted of: a mop base with a microfiber cleaning pad, a handle, a window cleaner with wiper and a pole with a 600ml refillable bottle and a replacement microfiber cloth.
Assembly was very straightforward using the instructions on the box and took less than a minute. It all fitted together and is very sturdy.
I added a small amount of floor cleaner (you can add your own favourite disinfectant or floor cleaner) to the bottle and then filled the bottle with hot water from the tap. There were no spillages/leaks when putting the bottle back on to the pole.
Now it was assembled it was time to see if it was any good.
Well what can I say? Despite my initial thoughts of it being no good, it is actually excellent. As it is lightweight it is very easy to manoeuvre around the floor. The trigger on the handle enables you to spray water onto the floor in front of the microfiber mop head ensuring that you get good coverage and without excessive amounts of water (makes the floor dry much quicker than using a standard mop and bucket). The mop head is quite large (41x14cm) and swivels so you can easily get around furniture and corners and can get right into corners and up against skirting boards, and because of the way the pad is designed it protects the woodwork as the cloth folds up around the mop base when touching a skirting or table leg.
It does an excellent job of cleaning the floor, wet or dry, removing dirt and debris, trapping dirt in the microfiber cloth. One cloth can clean up to 1000 square feet and can then be washed to use again (I have washed it in the washing machine to test it and it came out good as new – says it is still effective after 100 washes).
It also comes with a window cleaning head. As it has a 4ft handle this makes cleaning windows quite easy. One side has a microfiber cloth and then turn in around to use the soft rubber side to wipe off any excess water. Very simple and does a good job, being lightweight makes it easy to handle.
Overall, the WizMops 2-in-1 Spray Mop is an excellent mop. It cleans very well, it’s easy to handle and comfortable to hold, and it says getting out a mop and bucket everything you need to give the floor a quick clean so saves a lot of time and hassle. It is also very easy to store as the head swivels so is parallel with the pole, saving lots of space and even has a hook on the pole if you wanted to hang it on a peg. I have been using it for a week now and it is still working very well.
Definitely a must for any household.
