We've been buying similar products for many years as we've tiles in the house. We have used this type of Oates mop for several years and it doesn't last long at all. The first one lasted maybe 8 months and the last one about the same time and it is used once or twice a month. One would expect it last longer than that.
Overall - very disappointing.
Not what I was expecting
Not happy with this hop. The first time I used it, I immediately noticed that it doesn't release the water from the mop / sponge effectively. I still ended up with a soaking wet sponge which made cleaning the floor even harder. I was forced to use a dry mop to clean the floor and prevent it from getting even more wet.
I bought this mop, thinking the wide sponge would make mopping easier. Sadly, no matter how many times, I pull the handle to release the water, the mop is still too wet for cleaning timber floors. Water marks are everywhere once the floor dries, necessitating wiping over the floor firmly with a soft cloth. I have previously used the narrow mop and while it is still difficult to get it dry, it does a much better job.
Two bought broke fairly quickly. One didn't sit flat and with the other, one side snapped on day one. Sabco mop way better. I may have forgiven one being so poor, but both were. The only reason I bought them was that they were at the corner store. With the second one breaking, I went to Bunnings and bought a Sabco mop instead.
What a great mop this is i have had such trouble finding a mop that lasts the test of time. Who ever knew it was so hard?? I was really happy when i went to KMART and found this mop and the refills on special and with a promotion on that you get a free grout cleaner when you buy this mop. I snapped one up quickly and i was really happy with the quality, ease of use, cleaning and storing the mop. It was so cheap too and so far so good the mop is still going strong and its been at least 6 months!!
inexpensive and good quality
