Even a great broom needs a dust mop to help finish the job, and the Bona Premium Microfiber Mop is the best we tested. With a 16-by-4-inch footprint, its large head covers wide swaths of floor and has flexible ends to reach corners and baseboards. The Bona mop comes with two different, washable microfiber pads. The box describes the fluffy pad as intended for use on hardwood floors and the other pad for cleaning stone and tile. We found the fluffy pad and the flat pad to be equally effective at gathering flour and diatomaceous earth on tile, though the fluffy one was better at catching and gathering the particles themselves. The flat pad left no particles behind, but it pushed them into a pile rather than collecting them in the fibers. Overall, the fluffy pad performed the best.
Rather than looking for a dust mop with a specific type of frame, we considered anything easily maneuverable that could reach underneath furniture and into corners, with a sturdy handle and a smooth steering mechanism. We sought one with a dust-mop cover that could be removed without dust going everywhere, one that could hold a lot of debris before needing to be washed, and one that could survive dozens of washings. We also factored in the price of replacement covers.
To test dustpans, we swept half a teaspoon of flour into each one. This showed us how well each dustpan worked with our recommended broom and how effective each was at picking up, holding, and not spilling fine particles. After eliminating the dustpans that were abysmal at cleaning or way too small for the broom, we filled the remaining ones with water to measure their capacity.
For dust mops, we gently sifted a half-teaspoon of flour on a tile floor; this simulated a reasonable (but challenging) amount of settled dust. Then we washed each of the six dirty dust-mop heads individually on warm and hung them overnight to dry. We tested the last three a second time with another half-teaspoon of sifted flour and another trip through the wash.
In our sweep test with flour, the black rubber lip created a flawless seam between the dustpan and the floor. When we swept the flour into the pan and then moved the pan back, the line where the dustpan had been sitting looked like it had been cut with a razor. In comparison, nearly all of our other dustpans let some flour get under the lip (which meant we kept having to pull the dustpan back to gather the powder).
The OXO Good Grips dustpan handle has a clip that holds securely onto the dustpan for easy storage. We found that if we left the pair clipped together and standing up, it was hard to knock them over (annoyingly, some of our other lobby broom pairs would randomly fall over). Many dustpans have teeth at the back, to remove dirt from the broom bristles, but the teeth on the OXO Good Grips pan were particularly long and easy to weave through the broom. The extendable handle locks securely in place at any length.
The Bona Microfiber Dust Mop has a wide head with detachable pads that catch flour and diatomaceous earth better than any dust mop we tested. The mop comes with a fluffy gray polyester dusting pad and a second cleaning pad (with much shorter nubs of microfiber that function more like a good broom).
We had an easy time assembling the Bona dust mop, even with our strict under-3-minutes-with-no-instructions ease policy. We found constructing this mop to be intuitive, with the different pads each fitting onto the head via Velcro strips. (Many dust mops have pads that wrap around the entire head, but in our tests the Velcro strips provided a sturdier and more secure fit.) The dusting pad does the job of a traditional dust mop: catching and storing debris in the strands. The blue-and-white cleaning pad caught the flour and diatomaceous earth, but it seemed to hold less of it in the pad. If you happen to find yourself without a broom, the cleaning pad is a decent substitute when it comes to moving stuff around. As a dust mop the Bona model outperformed all other test models using only its fringy gray pad.
The Bona dust mop and its replacement pads are available from most retailers (they are sold individually or in packs that include a third pad, targeted for laminate and vinyl, which we have not tested). And the replacement heads are a bit less expensive than those of competitors.
When we originally researched the O-Cedar dust mop, we were concerned that the flipping mechanism would be loose and uncooperative, making the dust mop difficult to steer. But we found that the polypropylene resin frame has two thin, hollow strips that make the head top-heavy, so the frame is easy to flip along its horizontal axis by simply lifting the handle.
The O-Cedar Power Corner Large Angle Broom is similar to the Libman 206 Precision Angle Broom (above), but it has a wider head and stiffer bristles. We found the angle was great at getting into corners and under furniture, but the stiff bristles were worse at sweeping up fine debris, and they flung dust.
The Quickie Large All-Purpose Broom has a wide head. But it left lots of residue behind when we were sweeping flour and cat litter. When we swept piles into the dustpan, its long, springy bristles flung debris.
The dustpans that came with the O-Cedar PowerCorner Max, Made By Design Pivoting Head Floor Broom with Clip-on Dust Pan, Libman Precision Angle Broom with Dustpan, Made By Design Floor Broom with Clip-on Dust Pan Set, Libman 14-in. Poly Fiber Multi-Surface Angle with Dustpan Upright Broom, Moxie 12-in. Plastic Angle with Dustpan Upright Broom, and Libman Lobby Broom and Dustpan failed to pick up flour in one sweep, which our picks were able to do. The powder got trapped under the rubber lip or the body of the dustpan, so the tester had to pull the dustpan back and try again.
The Quickie Bull Dozer Extra Large Dust Pan is a high-quality dustpan that worked well. Ultimately, it does not have the footholds of our Libman pick or the slightly lower profile of the Made By Design dustpan.
Dust Mop/Dust Cloth Treatment is a ready-to-use formula used to pick up dust, lint and soil, reducing the wear and abrasion on floor finishes from sand and soil, and prolonging the floor finish life. Dust Mop/Dust Cloth Treatment can also be used to dust off pictures or to dust down walls and is safe to use on most hard surfaces. The pleasant fragrance and ease of use makes it appealing for the cleaning staff to use.
This is a crystal clear dressing to apply to dust mop heads to aid in the removal of dust, dirt, and other abrasive matter from floor surfaces. Mop heads which are treated with this compound act as a "dust magnet" to attract and hold particles until mop is cleaned or laundered. This treatment is non-oily and leaves a dry, protective, plasticized film on the surface of wood, asphalt, linoleum, vinyl, vinyl composition, rubber, terrazzo, concrete and gymnasium floors. Treatment will not harm waxed
Great mop...probably made for industrial uses but fits the bill for a house with all hardwood floors and two shedding dogs. The mop head pivots, enabling you to get into all crevices and corners. Highly recommended.
I live in a rural area on a frequently traveled dirt road. I have 1600 square feet of hardwood floor, a wood stove that creates a lot of ash dust, and a German Shepherd that sheds like crazy. We'd drown in dog hair and dust if I didn't sweep a couple times a day. I've gon through three mops at half this price but the plastic frames don't last. Also this mop has a MUCH better mop head. The cheaper heads don't have any mop strings in the center of the head just plastic. They're so light you have to press down on them to even feel any resistance at all.
I was so glad to find a "real" mop like they used to make 50 years ago. This is the real deal. We have glossy hardwood floors and this mop works great for daily cleaning. We live in a real dusty desert area, and the floors get covered with dust and fine sand every day.

The Dust Mop Floor Attachment for your central vacuum system can dust and vacuum hard surface floors at the same time. A convenient feature of this tool is the mophead which is removable and washable. It simply Velcros on, and can be thrown in the washer to clean repeatedly.
