I hate mopping. I’m sure you hate mopping too. I did it to make money when I was in high school, working as a janitor for a restaurant in Walnut Creek, California (that no longer exists, ‘natch). I did it to help put myself through college in the University dining hall. I do it now to keep my house clean. Now SLYDE says they can help ease my (and your) mopping pain.
Well, I know the ol’ mop-and-bucket thing is obsolete. And let’s face it: It was always a pretty iffy solution. I mean, who thought a person five and a half to six feet tall (or more!), gripping a four-foot stick and pushing it around the floor, continually dipping it into a bucket of water that was constantly getting dirtier and dirtier, was a good idea?
Some mops are too short, and they’re heavy as heck. The lifting, the bending, the pressing, the wringing (can you tell I did a lot of this?)…it gets to you. Who thought this was a good way to clean floors? Not the gang who made the SLYDE, I’m telling you that.
The SLYDE is only 5 pounds, and it has a fully integrated sweeping and mopping function. The sweep function propels on its own, and you pull to mop, so it’s sort of a “do it all in one go” kind of solution.
SLYDE is designed to work on tile, marble, wood, laminate, and pretty much all other types of flooring in your typical house. I can’t reliably report on, I dunno, prestressed painted concrete (I had a floor like that in Austin, I swear!), but I’m sure it’s worth a try. It doesn’t have a water tank to disperse water, has no dust bag, is rechargeable, is cordless, and has a one-year limited warranty.
