great idea, poor quality
My wife came home with this a few months back. We used it quite a bit, very useful. After a few weeks the clip broke, and was unable to hold onto the cleaning heads. Be a great product if the clip was stronger, or there was a valcro style attachment.
Shame, it was a great product while it lasted.
Terrible, sweep head
I live in a small retirement unit so thought a Sabco super sweep would be perfect, a micro fibre head to attract dust, fluff dirt and. Themother for mopping. The micro fibre head does not attract for sweeping so does not perform the task for which it was designed, a dustpan and broom is still required. The mop head is fine.
Sprayer seized up
After used about twice a week for just under one year the the sprayer seized up.
I am not the only one with this problem!!
Ferry disappointing, as long as the thing works it is great.
Trouble with the handle,not working properly
It does the job but had difficulty extending the handle,now it was stuck less than the length I want it to be.Just wonder if anyone can help me on this.
Does not work like stated
When using this mop as instructed in a figure eight pattern (either with the microfingers pad or the microfibre pad), either the mop unscrews from the handle at the bottom, or the extendable handle lock comes undone, so you are forever fixing it. Very frustrating. Didn't Sabco test this model prior to producing it? Also, this mop is six inches shorter than my previous microfibre mop (which I absolutely loved but couldn't find to repurchase). I am 170 cm tall and have to bend to use it properly. The microfibre pad leaves the floor wetter than my previous mop. All in all I would love to throw it in the bin, but don't want to spend any more money replacing it.
Not bad for the money
Used as a wet mop it does okay if you do figure eights. Last figure eight before rinsing can leave some debris on the ground. My biggest concern is the mop-head unscrews while I mop, meaning you have to retighten it periodically. Thinking I might superglue the head attachment to fix this. Not a bad mop for the money.
Re-washable, flip out scourer, no cleaning products needed.
Mop head unscrews while mopping. Not good for extremely heavily soiled floors.
This mop fails to do what it stated in the product disclosure. The microfibers does not pick up dirt from my floorboards it only moved it around. Tried on my tiled area as well with the same result, only thing that kinda stuck to it was my hair which would form a clump on the edge.Overall a big waste of money.
Dosen't do the job in description
Look, it did the job but the head was too small (make sure you buy the bigger one - there are 2 sizes) and by the time I realised this I had wasted money on a whole handle and head attachment thing that I didn't need any more and couldn't re-use. Some dust and pet hair seemed to escape a bit as I was swishing around - not much though, could have been me trying to sweep whilst frustrated at myself(!) The Mr Clean brand (not listed on Product review) felt a lot more velvety which in turn one would think would pick more dirt up.
Probably my mista...ke - but don't let it be yours. I looked at the double pack of wet and dry Super Swish which I now know to be larger heads. I didn't need the wet mop at the time so just purchased a single item which was too small for my needs. Didn't realise until I got it home and cracked the pack open and tried it. There's no size dimensions on the packaging of the small or large heads. Buyer beware.
Questions & Answers
As stated by another customer the plastic lock clip that allows you to bend the head to install a clean pad is a very weak part of the mop. Ours is not quite 12 months old and it has broken. Maybe instead of having to purchase another mop you could sell the clip as a spare part. Very poor design indeed. We cannot claim warranty as we do not have the original receipt, as like most people they throw them away thinking the mop will last some time as Sabco has a great name so it is a shame this small part spoils the quality.
Hi Rod, thank you for writing to us. I'm sorry to hear that you have had this experience with a product of ours. I'm happy to honor the warranty regardless of you having a receipt or not. But could you please send me a picture of the broken section of the product so i can better understand whats happened and what i need to send to replace it / fix it. Cheers
Hi I have no problem sending a photo of the broken catch. Can you tell me where to send the photo and to whom ?
See if you can send it over this, otherwise, feel free to send it over Facebook to Sabco Cleaning Products
I wish to purchase 12 "Sabco SuperSwish Microfingers replacement mop heads only", don't need the poles.
I've made inquires at different department stores around town and, online they don't list the Sabco SuperSwish Mop Head as a separate item. Could you forward a contact number in New Zealand that stock the item or an Australian supplier willing to ship Sabco SuperSwish Microfingers replacement mop heads across the ditch.
Hi, normally we don't sell just the head but ill be able to get you into contact with our NZ warehouse and they'll be able to send you some. Just send me a private message over Product review with your details and ill pass them on. Cheers
Hi There, My wife bought this Sabco Super Swich Duo from BigW a few months ago. Extending the handle seemed to leave the handle loose, but that was because I didn't realise how to do it correctly. I worked it out eventually though...
The product works well and I am quite happy with it. As other people have noticed, the microfibre fingers pad leaves some of the debris on the floor (sand for example, soil, small shards, small leaves, etc.), so I always have a small portable vac handy.
One pain point for me is the inability to find refill pads. Because the pads need frequent cleaning, I need about 4 refills (at normal prices, i.e. significantly less than buying the same number of mops plus pads packages). For the microfibre fingers pad I have to go outside often and shake it to remove the dust, hairs etc. that accumulate on it. Similar frequent cleans of the wet pad are needed for thorough cleaning. I cleaned today and I had to go outside about 4 or 5 times. This is frustrating. It would be much more efficient to change the pads while I mop the floors and clean them all at the end.
The question is where or how can I buy well prices refills that will cost much less than buying for mops+pads packages?
