Clean Police Floating Mop ReviewWhile the concept of “motorized scrubber” works to an extent, it cannot be a complete alternative to Swiffer Mop and the good old scrubbing with hands. The Clean Police is good as a mop but not as a scrubber. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of the Clean Police Floating Mop.
Battery LifeThe one major advantage of Clean Police Floating Mop has over its competitors like Gladwell is the 90-minutes runtime. The Gladwell mop has a battery life of 30 minutes while the Clean Police has 90 minutes, 300% more runtime. But to get the runtime of 90-minutes you have to charge the Floating Mop the whole night.
Good for Touch UpsFrom the reviews it is apparent that the Clean Police Floating Mop is great for quick touch ups but not as effective as manual scrubbing and mopping.
ScrubbingNot many reviewers are happy with the way Clean Police Floating Mop scrubs the floor. As the name suggests the Clean Police mop merely floats on the surface. Many reviewers complain that the rotating pads just move the dirt around. A manual mop does far better scrubbing than the Floating Mop. There are also complaints of the Floating Mop leaving swirl marks on the floor. It cannot be used on the laminate floors.
Difficult to UseAs per the reviews, the Clean Police Floating Mop is not all that easy to use, given the opposite directions in which the mop pads rotate, the Floating Mop tends to move all over the place and you have to use considerable muscle power to keep the mop stead and where you want it. It is difficult to push the mop in the forward direction. The rotating scrub pads also make changing the direction of cleaning difficult, this issue becomes more pronounced when cleaning in tight spaces and near the walls. The mop is tiring to use even for a well built person.
Floating Mop is UnderpoweredThe Cleaning Police Floating Mop is underpowered to do heavy duty cleaning. Don’t expect the Floating Mop to remove muddy stains on the floors in just one pass. The manual Swiffer sweeper does a better scrubbing job than this. Almost all the reviews agree that the Floating Mop is just okay for “light” mopping.
Missing FeaturesThough the Clean Police Floating Mop has more battery juice it lacks key features found on other similar mops. The Floating Mop does not have LED light to illuminate the path to be cleaned. The Floating mop also lacks the essential sprayer option adversely affecting the efficiency of the mop. You have to manually spray the disinfectant on the mop pads, not a very good idea.
Our VerdictThe Clean Police Floating Mop is not the only motorized floor mop out there in the market. There are several of these and there is nothing special about the Floating Mop (except for the longer battery life), in fact it lacks an important feature of the sprayer. Cleaning includes scrubbing and mopping and the Floating Mop fails miserably at scrubbing and is fairly good at mopping, so is your Swiffer. The other issue highlighted by the reviews is the quality of the Clean Police Floating Mop. Since it is an electro-mechanical device, everyday use is going to take the toll on the mop reducing its life. The quality of the Floating Mop is really poor, given the fact that the Floating Mop is manufactured in China and promoted by Telebrands – not a prominent brand like Swiffer. We do not recommend the Clean Police Floating Mop, do not dump your old Swiffer for this. Gladwell Cordless Electric Mop is a better alternative to the Floating Mop.
