VILEDA microfibre mops do not kill bacteria and viruses. They remove bacteria* from the floor with the use of just water. The tiny microfibres physically stick closely to the floor and pick up dirt and over 99% of bacteria, and carry them away - without the need of harsh chemicals.
The bacteria will be rinsed out of the mop head into the mop bucket and you will not bring them back on to your floors. The testing institute confirmed no recontamination when wiping a rinsed mop head onto a sterile surface.
Note: Bacteria are not killed by the microfibres. They go into the water and you need to pour out the water to remove them from your house. Our recommendation is to change the refill often, do not touch the refill with your hands (or without gloves) and wash your refill frequently. Bacteria will be killed in the washing machine (min 30º) using washing detergent.
