i-mop vs normal mopping ATP test results

Compared with regular mopping systems, cleaning a floor with the I-mop offers some significant technical advantages that theoretically should result in a cleaner floor with lower levels of dirt and bacteria. Let’s review some of these features of the I-mop;

  1. 350rpm brushes – substantially more mechanical action to remove soil compared with mop movements
  2. Fresh cleaning solution is continually being applied as the machine moves forward.
  3. All dirty solution is vacuumed up rather than being spread around the floor the way a regular mop does.

But how do these technical differences translate to real measurable cleanliness results? Does it actually make any difference and give you a cleaner floor?

We wanted to put the science to the test and measure the difference in the ATP test results between regular mopping and mopping with the I-mop!

What we found in this video is some quite remarkable statistics;

  • Cleaning the floor with the I-mop reduced the ATP readings by 99.4% vs a reduction of 78.5% in the area cleaned with regular mopping
  • “After” test results prove the section of floor cleaned with the I-mop had an ATP reading over 75 times lower than the area cleaned with regular mopping.
