Water is too precious to be dumped onto the floor or into a drain at this rate. Not only can a company help the environment but lower their chemical costs by 60-80%. It’s a win, win situation!
West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) July 28, 2011
OR Innovation Corp of West Palm Beach Florida has created a new mopping system the Mopzilla. A battery powered, self-sanitizing mop, that eliminates bacterial floor cross contamination while reducing slip and fall accidents and injuries. In addition, this new system reduces the consumption of water and chemicals by up to 80%, while producing much cleaner and sanitary results. To accomplish this savings, their system uses only the chemicals and water that is required. It achieves this by spraying solution directly onto the floor instead of dipping a mop into a bucket over and over. After dispensing the chemical solution, the Mopzilla then immediately evacuates up to 99% of the fluid off the floor. This ensures that the dirt and bacteria are sucked into a separate reservoir for disposal allowing the chemicals used to not become over-diluted and stay effective to the last drop.
In comparison, when using a standard mop and bucket, maintenance personnel must fill the bucket with a solution of approximately 6 gallons of water and 6 to 12 ounces of floor cleaning chemicals. As the floors are being mopped the water and chemicals become diluted from double dipping a mop back into the bucket. When the solution in the bucket is reduced to about 40% the solution becomes ineffective and must be poured down a drain and replaced. Cleaning protocol normally requires that the bucket be refilled at least two times a shift which adds up to an average of 12 gallons per shift per bucket. A medium sized facility may have up to 18 buckets which adds up to 216 gallons of water and 432 ounces of chemical being used in an eight hour day. The amount of mops and buckets being used daily in America creates a disturbing amount of water and chemicals being wasted. The creators of Mopzilla took this in to account when creating their product. Jamie Rawet, President of OR Innovations says “Water is too precious to be dumped onto the floor or into a drain at this rate. Not only can a company help the environment but lower their chemical costs by 60-80%. It’s a win, win situation!”
As well as the money and water saving features, the Mopzilla was shown in independent lab tests to be far more effective at reducing cross contamination and slip and fall injuries in comparison to standard flat and string mops. This is due to unique features such as the Mopzilla’s ability to sanitize itself in 30 seconds, and it’s powerful suction that picks up 99% of fluid off the floor leaving floors far cleaner and less slippery than the competition.
