Kaivac Launches “Stop the Mop” Campaign

by Katie Lee

Hamilton, Ohio — Kaivac, manufacturers of the No-Touch® and Omniflex™ professional cleaning systems, has launched a Stop the Mop™ campaign, an educational campaign to inform the public about the inferior cleaning of mops and the existence of healthier, more effective floor care methods.

The website, StoptheMop.com, showcases facts about mops and the contaminants they can spread. Stop the Mop solutions will also be displayed at this year’s ISSA/INTERCLEAN tradeshow to be held in Chicago October 25-28, 2016. Kaivac’s booth will be #5257

“Our team at Kaivac has been developing innovative and effective floor care systems for almost 20 years,” says Tom Morrison, Kaivac’s vice president of marketing. “Today, even though we have access to effective and affordable technology that removes 99.9% of targeted bacteria, the vast majority of professional cleaners still use mops — an old, some would say medieval method that only removes about 50% of targeted bacteria. That is why we launched this campaign.”

Morrison adds that at a time when infectious diseases have the power to close down facilities, and public restrooms can be transmission points for Norovirus, Shigella, and Hepatitis A, “the Stop the Mop campaign aims to be a turning point, reversing the potentially negative impact of inferior floor care on public health.”

The Stop the Mop website lays out the case against mops using data from scientific studies conducted by Charles Gerba, Ph.D., Jay Glasel, Ph.D., the Toxics Use Reduction Institute at the University of Massachusetts, and Kaivac’s own research.

Visitors can follow the campaign at www.StoptheMop.com. For more information, visit Kaivac.com.
