VILEDA Microfiber Mops Remove over 99% of Bacteria* with Just Water

VILEDA microfiber mop heads are made up of millions of tiny synthetic fibers. When used with water, all of these tiny fibers loosen and physically pick up dirt and also bacteria. Over 99% of bacteria are removed with just water and without the use of harsh cleaning chemicals. We commissioned testing of VILEDA microfiber mops at an external accredited laboratory.

Does microfiber kill all bacteria?

VILEDA microfiber mops do not kill bacteria. They remove bacteria* from the floor with the use of just water. The tiny microfibers physically stick closely to the floor picking up dirt and over 99% of bacteria, and carrying them away - without the need of harsh chemicals.

Disinfecting implies that you are killing bacteria. Microfibers do not kill bacteria but pick them up and remove them from your home’s floors.

Fact: We successfully tested the removal of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, two common bacteria found in homes and the microfiber removed both types of bacteria with just tap water.

Where does the bacteria go once I’ve picked it up?

The bacteria will be rinsed out of the mop head into the mop bucket and you will not bring them back onto your floor. The testing institute confirmed no recontamination when wiping a rinsed mop head onto a sterile surface.

Can I wash the microfiber mop heads – what about using fabric softener?

Yes, the microfiber mop heads can be washed and reused. For best results, wash in warm water by hand or simply wash in the washing machine according to usage instruction.
Avoid using fabric softener. It can coat the tiny microfibers, ultimately making them less effective. Once washed, lay flat to dry.


Can I use cleaning chemicals?
