Laundry recommendations

VERMOP cleaning textiles are made of high-quality materials and make a convincing impact with their excellent cleaning performance. Inorder to retain the functionality of these cleaning textiles in daily use for as long as possible, their care is very important. We have compiledthe following list of points to be observed when washing the VERMOP cleaning textiles. In addition, statutory regulations should always be observed.

  • Pre-wash new mops

    Before they are used for the first time, new mops and microfibre cloths MUST be pre-washed at 95 °C. This tightens the seams and improves the absorption capacity of the fibres. (Exceptions: Acryl Color)

  • Wash seperately

    Cleaning textiles made of microfibre and bristle materials, as well as the Antibak mop, should be washed separately. This prevents the various fibre qualities damaging one another. For microfibre cloths in particular, laundering nets should be used.

  • Remove course dirt

    When floors are cleaned, course dirt gets caught in the mop. This is why they should be shaken out thoroughly or vacuumed before washing. This prevents course dirt getting into the washing process. Course dirt can damage the cleaning textiles and the washing machine.

  • Do not over-fill the washing machine

    In order to achieve the optimum washing result, there must be enough space in the washing machine drum. Only when the cleaning textiles can move freely in the drum is it possible for the dirt to be rinsed out. As a rule of thumb, leave a hand‘s width or the upper third of the porthole window free.

  • Detergent only in the main washing cycle

    Detergent should only be used in the main washing cycle. Detergent should be chosen to correspond to the area of use and degree of soiling in the mop. When dosing detergents, the manufacturer's instructions should be observed. If possible, no bleaches containing chlorine or other aggressive bleaching processes should be used. Do not use fabric softener!

  • Wash mop in pre-wash cycle

    The mop wash should involve at least one pre-wash cycle with cold water. Do not use detergent in the pre-wash to prevent fibres being damaged by chemical reactions with cleaning-agent residue. In addition to the residue of cleaning agents, the pre-wash also removes loose dirt. This considerably improves the washing result. The cleaning textiles may not be washed at temperatures exceeding those specified!

  • Oberserving the dryer temperature

    The recommended dryer temperature for cleaning textiles must not be exceeded. Drying at temperature which are too high can damage the fibres of the textiles.

  • Store dry

    The cleaning textiles should be stored as dry as possible. Damp storage can result in the occurrence of mildew.

  • Check the mop washing machine

    The faultless functioning of the washing machine is crucial for a good standard of washing. Regular checks should be made, among other things, on: - The drainage hose: check that it is not bent and that the outlet is lower than the washing machine - The drum: check for damage and dirt and remove if present - The powder drawer: check for cleanliness and remove power residue if necessary In addition, we recommend observing the service intervals of the washing machine. This means that such sensitive components as the heating element are regularly checked.
