What To Look For When Choosing A Mop For The Ceiling

what to look for - mop for ceiling

A good mop should be able to remove dust and grime that has, over time, accumulated on the ceiling, be durable and be easy to move around. These are the guidelines I use when choosing a mop to clean my ceilings:

The Weight Of The Mop

Having to lift a mop above my head with extended arms for some time can be a little tiring, so make sure the mop is not too heavy. I look for a mop that weighs less than 3 pounds for ease of use.

Extendable Handles 

It is essential that the mop has extendable (telescopic) handles to reach the ceiling effortlessly. I can adjust extendable handles to different heights to not over-flex my arms when cleaning the ceiling. Opt for a handle that can extend at least 5 feet (60 inches) to give sufficient reach.

The Mop Head Should Swivel

A swivel or pivoting mop head will reach corners, creases, and tight ceiling areas. The best options are the mop heads with a 180° – 360° swivel, but those with a 90° pivot will also work well and give enough movement and flexibility.

A Larger Mop Head

A larger mop head will allow me to clean a larger area of the ceiling at one time which is less time-consuming. Choose a mop head that is 10”-20” wide for a more efficient clean.

A Soft Mop Head And Best Material

Mops For Ceilings

Opt for a soft cloth pad to cover the mop head that will not scratch or damage the ceiling.  Microfiber is the perfect material for a mop head because it is soft, cleans well, and is super absorbent when wet. Another excellent feature is that the static electricity in the microfiber attracts dust and dirt when dry, so I can sweep the ceiling before washing it.

The microfiber pad is more expensive than other materials, but it is more durable and can be easily laundered without showing any deterioration. Other materials used to make mop heads are sponge and polyester, but microfiber is the best option.
