Q: Does Turbo Clean Fibers kill all bacteria?
A: GALA Turbo Spin Mop do not kill bacteria. They remove bacteria* from the floor with
the use of water. The tiny Turbo Clean Fibers physically stick closely to the floor
picking up dirt and over 99% of bacteria, and carrying them away - without the need
of harsh chemicals.
Q: Will the Turbo Clean Fiber mop pads disinfect my floors?
A: Disinfecting implies that you are killing bacteria. Turbo Clean Fibers do not kill bacteria but pick them up and remove them from your home’s floors.
Fact: We successfully tested the removal of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, two common bacteria found in homes and the Turbo Clean Fiber removed both types of bacteria with just tap water.
Q: Where does the bacteria go once I’ve picked it up?
A: The bacteria will be rinsed out of the mop head into the mop bucket and you will not bring them back onto your floor. The testing institute confirmed no recontamination when wiping a rinsed mop head onto a sterile surface.
Q: Can I wash the Turbo Spin Mop heads – what about using fabric softener?
