When talking about janitorial equipment, an IMC mop sink (also called a floor sink) is an essential item for any commercial facility. If your business regularly mops hard floor surfaces, IMC mop sinks are the most convenient & useful pieces of cleaning equipment you can add to your establishment.
Usually floor mounted, an IMC mop sink gives staff a convenient place to fill & empty mop buckets, clean mops and other supplies, and acquire water for other tasks. One big advantage of IMC mop sinks is that they allow janitorial staff to dump their used water without the strain of lifting or bending their backs to pick it up.
These sinks are not meant for use with any food products. Mop sinks connect to existing plumbing, which makes installation simple & speedy.
With so many versions of mop sinks available, selecting the correct one to fit your needs can be a challenge. In this article, we will provide a brief rundown of each of our IMC mop sink offerings & provide some helpful buying tips.
