by Brianna Crandall — April 13, 2018 — Unger Enterprises, worldwide manufacturer of high-quality, ergonomic professional cleaning and maintenance tools, recently announced the launch of the Unger Excella floor-cleaning system, which the company says has been independently verified to clean and seal floors twice as fast as traditional methods.
An independent study conducted by ManageMen, Inc., in January of this year concluded that the Unger Excella cleaned 4,878 square feet per hour, compared to just 2,564 square feet per hour with a 24 oz. string mop head, in effect nearly doubling efficiency.
The Unger Excella combines rubber-coated non-slip, dual-swivel handles and a self-guiding S-curve pole, providing a mopping system that is “self-steering.” The deep-cleaning microfiber pads are 80% lighter than string mops. The system is touted as the first one available that includes both a height-adjustable pole (48″-65″) and the ability to dispense liquid from the bottle on board. This combination of features is designed to provide dramatically faster cleaning with less strain and effort than competitive mops.
John Lombardo, VP Global Sales and Marketing for Unger, offered:
At Unger, our focus is making tools that get the job done faster and keep employees safer. Unger Excella has a unique design that allows users to use the latest technology and cut labor time in half. The patent-pending elements of the Unger Excella all but eliminate strain and stress on the user and keep them moving at top speed.
The Unger Excella is suitable for use on all hard-floor surfaces and for spot mopping, wet mopping, dusting and floor finishing applications. A .5L bottle, 1L bottle and 5L backpack allows facilities managers (FMs) and cleaning staff to scale floor cleaning to match the environment.
