Before looking at how the Step Back Mopping System works it is important to understand why it works, and in order to do so you must examine what you are trying to achieve when mopping a floor.
When mopping any floor the aim should always be to remove any loose soils, dirt, residue’s from the surface before they have the chance to become ingrained. Mopping the floor in this manner will ensure you always receive the desired result, which is to leave your floors free of SSR’s – Streak’s, Smear’s & Residue’s.
The Step Back Mopping system achieves this to a perfect standard. The high performance Waffle Floor Cloth will pull up and extract any loose soils from the surface but, most importantly, the microfibres in the cloth will hold this soil on the cloth until the cloth is washed or rinsed out.
This ensures that no soils initially taken up ever return to the floor during the mopping process, thus keeping the floor in optimum condition at all times.
Traditional mopping systems, including steam mops, have one particular weakness and this is the crucial differentiating factor between the Step Back Mopping System and all others. When cleaning the floor whatever is used to carry out the cleaning, be it a microfibre pad, String Mop Head or Strip Mop Head, it will always reach a point where it is completely saturated with dirt/soils/residues.
Once this saturation point is reached the equipment simply cannot extract any more loosened soils from the floor, all it can do is push the soils around the floor. When this happens the floor glistens with moisture and gives the illusion of being clean, but when the floor dries it dries with smears on the surface. Soils are left on the floor which ultimately will become ingrained leading to further problems.
No floor surface is deemed to be clean unless it is completely smear free and residue free and this is why the Step Back Mopping System always works.
