The Impact LFCB18 fringe dry/dust mop microfiber pad is 18" long, has strings of gray microfiber with cut ends and a yellow canvas backing, and can be used with a 5" dust mop head frame and handle (sold separately) to dust floors. The pad is made of microfiber for absorbency and resistance to shedding. Fringe along the edge of the pad can pick up larger particles of dust and debris. The envelope-style backing is made with canvas to resist wear and accepts a dust mop frame measuring 5" wide (frame sold separately). The color of the backing may be used to distinguish the microfiber pad from other pads of different lengths. The microfiber pad measures 18 x 5 inches (L x W). (L is length, the horizontal distance from left to right; W is width, the horizontal distance from front to back.)
Dust mops (also called dry mops) consist of a mop head, a mop frame, and a handle. A mop head is sometimes tied on to a mop frame with connected strings, or it has a sleeve into which the frame fits. The frame provides support for the shape of the mop head, which consists of dust-collecting yarns and a flexible backing to hold the yarns together and connect to the frame. Dust mop heads have traditionally been made of cotton, and used with an oil- or water-based chemical treatment to improve dust retention. Microfiber mops are made from extremely thin synthetic fibers that are non-abrasive, lint-free, and hold a positive electrostatic charge that attracts and retains dust so that no treatment is needed. The handle is a separate item that connects to the frame. Often the frame or the handle also includes a swivel joint for flexible maneuverability.
