There are three jobs that I try to do every single day around the home. One is cleaning the loos, one is making sure my kitchen benches and cooktop is clean and wiped down and the third is my floors.
Yep, with a hairy beast of a dog, an asthmatic kid, two golfers and their golf shoes which are always covered in grass clippings and sand, I always feel that if I don’t run through my living areas with a mop,my house just isn’t clean. When I was offered to review this new mop system and saw the bucket in action* I thought all my mopping dreams had come true!
The Vileda Premium 5 Cleaning System claims the following five special features to ensure superior performance and comfortable cleaning:
• Wide frame covers more surface area
• Microfibre pads for a streak free floor
• Thorough cleaning with less chemicals
• Swivel head to clean hard to reach places
• Ergonomic telescopic handle
Each mop comes with two heads: one a Mop and Sweep and the other a Dust and Sweep. The Mop and Sweep you use with the Spin Wringer Bucket which you buy separately.
Having used the Enjo mopping system previously, I naturally compared the two and I actually think the Vileda comes out ahead. Why? For the simple reason that when you need to rinse your mop, which I tend to do after every zone in my home, you don’t need to take the mop head off the handle. Yes… for me that’s a big plus. All you need to do is unlock the head with your foot, which concertina folds the mop head, give it a slosh in the bucket, place it in the ringer and push the pedal on the side twice. Rinsed mop head. Easy peasy.
The mop was very easy to use. The telescopic handle was able to be height adjusted, the swivel head works smoothly and the mop head doesn’t leave too much moisture on the floor. The bucket is well made and sturdy with ample room to get the mop head in and out.
Overall, I was very impressed with the whole system. It gets 5 stars from me!
