"We are excited to be working with BISSELL on the Symphony™ All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop. The mop pad is infused with Microban® antimicrobial technology for superior performance and odor protection for the end consumer,” said Richard Chapman, VP Marketing for Microban International. "Both of our companies pride themselves on providing innovative solutions to consumer cleaning needs and behaviors. Incorporating Microban antimicrobial technology provides a win for all parties."
A microfiber mop pad is in constant contact with moisture and is a hot spot for the growth of microbes such as, bacteria, mold and mildew. Built-in to the mop pads during the manufacturing process, Microban® antimicrobial technology is engineered to work continuously for the lifetime of the mop pad. The BISSELL microfiber mop pads with Microban® antimicrobial protection help to protect against odor-causing bacteria on the mop pad, to keep it fresher longer. After cleaning, the Quick-Release Mop Pad Tray™ snaps off to easily remove the mop pad for washing, while the adjustable handle collapses for easy, compact storage. Microban® antimicrobial product protection delivers a stain and odor inhibiting technology that makes the microfiber mop pads easier to clean, a time-saving feature that busy consumers are looking for.
“We’ve engineered Microban® technology into the mop pads on our steam mops for a few years now so there wasn’t a second thought when we began to conceptualize the BISSELL Symphony All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop,” said Adam Madigan, General Manager and Global Business Director - Hard Surfaces. “Microban® antimicrobial product protection provides our consumers with extra peace of mind that odors will be kept at bay from the mop pad in between uses and cleanings.”
The BISSELL Symphony with mop pads treated with Microban® antimicrobial technology is available for a suggested retail price of $219 at bissell.com, bissellclean.com and on HSN's (http://www.HSN.com) platforms, including TV, online and mobile, Walmart and Walmart.com, and Best Buy and BestBuy.com.
