The i-mop XL Plus: An auto scrubber built to go where others can’t

In the wake of COVID-19, the janitorial process is becoming more complicated than ever – but facilities can streamline their methods by opting to use more versatile and efficient equipment, like the new and improved i-mop XL Plus.

Think about the classic mop-and-bucket: portable, though sometimes messy and unhygienic. Or the modern auto scrubber: powerful, but heavy and clunky at times. What if you could eliminate the flaws of those tried-and-true tools, while combining them to synthesize their strengths? Don’t worry, this isn’t a gimmick.

It’s possible to find that perfect blend of performance and maneuverability with the i-mop XL Plus: an ergonomically-designed cleaning machine with the versatility for any job. Along with fitting into tight spaces, the i-mop XL Plus is the only auto scrubber capable of cleaning directly next to a wall. All other auto scrubbers can only get within 2-3 inches.

Melding the professional power of an auto scrubber with the agility of a mop, the i-mop XL Plus helps protect the health of the people who use your facility, whether it be students, healthcare staff or office employees.

The new i-mop XL Plus features improvements from the original model, including:

  • An electronic angle switch to protect the motor from flooding. The switch automatically deactivates the motor if operated below a 32-degree angle.
  • A new filter system within the recovery tank. A floating ball in the filtration element will rise when the tank is full, closing the tank and preventing water from overflowing.
  • A new PLUS charger with the power to revive batteries that have drained below 18 volts to 16 volts.
  • The option to raise the scrub deck into park position automatically shuts off the tool’s battery to prevent drainage and optimize battery life.
  • Brushes no longer rotate in park position to help reduce splashing.

The classic, fundamental features of the i-mop model continue to make it a trusted tool for pros. Those features include:

  • Intuitive controls that make operation simple and easy.
  • 360-degree steering capability that enables you to reach tight corners and critical, obstructed spaces.
  • Color-coded, detachable tanks keep multiple cleaning solutions accessible and organized.
  • A full range of pads and counter-rotating bristles can tackle a variety of floor and soil types.
  • Fluid Control technologies conserve water and ensure efficient use of solution, maximizing utility.
  • Two rechargeable lithium-ion batteries enable continuous run time.
  • Quick-drying technology reduces slip-and-fall hazards.

Long-term bio protection: Does it shield against COVID-19?

Since COVID-19 hit, we’ve seen everything from “miracle” cleaners to practical, evidence-based processes and chemicals proven to kill the virus. Most notable is a group of products categorized as providing long-term bio protection, which has received a ton of hype. 

But is that hype warranted? Spoiler alert: No. But before we go deeper, let’s align on how long-term bio protection is defined. 

Long-term bio protection, at this moment, means a chemical can prevent bacteria and fungi from living on a surface for an extended period.  

The concept is simple: Rather than applying a disinfectant after each time a surface is touched, a long-term bio protectant is positioned as a solution that only needs to be applied occasionally. It then acts as a “shield” against certain microscopic bacteria. 

But, here’s the catch: Long-term bio protection doesn’t protect against COVID-19. It’s being positioned that way, but the science doesn’t align.  

For multiple reasons, including its inability to prevent COVID-19 from surviving, we do not condone the use of long-term bio protectants when defending against the virus at this time. 

Long-term bio protectants 

What they do: 

  • Provide a microbiostatic agent that create an invisible “shield” to protect surfaces from bacteria and fungus that can corrode or damage material. 
  • Inhibits the growth of bacteria, fungi and algae.
  • Prevents bacteria from staining or discoloring surfaces.
  • Prevents odor-causing bacteria from growing. 
  • Approved only for residential.

What they don’t do:

  • Kill or prevent COVID-19 on surfaces. 

What the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says:

  • Long-term bio protectants are not proven to kill COVID-19. 
  • They are not listed on the EPA’s “N” list, which provides disinfectants proven to kill COVID-19. 
  • No timeframe for how long the bio protectants last is listed.
