Understanding Essential Mopping Accessories

Facility hygiene is the current talk of the town. Items such as hand sinkssoap dispensers & towel dispensers are more popular than ever. For janitorial purposes, mop sinks are a vital component in maintaining facility hygiene. However, there are a few more important mopping accessories that you should know about.

In this article, we will highlight 2 major mopping accessories & give you some buying tips to aid you in your search. Let’s start.

Mop Drainage Trays – Stop Slipping Hazards

Slipping hazards are caused by pools of dirty liquid on the floor, sometimes left over after mopping. A mop drainage tray minimizes this risk by providing a place for soap & water to drip off mops. Less mess means fewer hazards. Mop drainage trays also have a backsplash to keep your walls safe from water damage & looking clean & neat.


IMC offers two types of mop drainage trays to facilitate facility safety & hygiene. Let’s explore below:



FST-27 is constructed from 16-gauge type 300 series stainless steel & measures 27″L x 6″W x 2″D with a 4″ high backsplash. The unit has (1) 1/2″ drain for your liquids.



FST-21 is constructed from 16-gauge type 300 series stainless steel & measures 21″L x 6″W x 6″D with a 12″ high backsplash. The unit has (1) 1/2″ drain for your liquids. The high backsplash provides even more protection for your walls & the deep basin accommodates most mops.

Mop Holders – Keep Your Mops & Brooms Organized

Having a mishmash of mops & brooms piled up in one area of your facility is inefficient & makes it difficult to find the right cleaning items when you need them. A mop holder is a great way to increase organization & maximize storage space. A mop holder is perfect for utilizing your unused wall space to keep your cleaning equipment in order & easy to access.

IMC Model #MH features black rubber tension grip holders to keep mops & brooms securely in place, ensuring your supplies stay safely out of your way. The hanging design also helps reduce stress on your equipment & ensures that wet mops will dry properly, allowing you to extend the life of your equipment & save money on replacements. Mop holders truly make storing & retrieving your janitorial supplies a quick, painless task. Here’s a quick breakdown of IMC mop holders:

Which One Is Right for You?

For mop drainage trays, try to base your decision on the way you arrange your mops after use. If you find that your wet mops consistently lay on your walls, the higher backsplash of the FST-21 may be your best bet.

For mop holders, take into account how many mops you put to work on a daily basis. If you are only doing some light cleaning, the 3 holder version should be sufficient. If you are doing heavy cleaning, the 5 holder version will be a life saver.
