The Showdown Begins…………
GOOD EVENING ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the fight of the century – the experienced and well respected mop and bucket meets its match when it comes up against the young gun firecracker, the commercial floor cleaner. Both have cleaned their fair share of supermarket floors, restaurants, factories and bathrooms across the country, but how do they stack up against each other??
We spoke to each of them just before their warm up:
Commercial Floor Cleaner: Yeah, well I’m extremely efficient in how I perform. What I can get done in 15 minutes my opponent takes at least three times as long, if not longer. I’m a straight shooter; I don’t like to just sweep things under the carpet or just move dirt from one place to another, UNLIKE MY OPPONENT….
Ooooh POW! Fighting words there from the Commercial Floor Cleaner…
Mop & Bucket: Not getting behind us would be like not getting behind your dear old grandpa. There’s a reason why we’ve lasted the distance; it’s because we’re always ready to get the job done.
Admittedly not the most convincing response.
The two competitors face off against each other. Their challenge is to see who can best clean their allotted 30m x 30m floor space in the shortest possible time. The floors have had everything from soft drink to sauce to squashed peas and grease smeared and thrown all over it. Both the commercial floor cleaner and the mop have up to 30 minutes to get their areas as spotless as possible – let’s see just who cleans up!
The starting buzzer sounds and the commercial floor cleaner is off to a cracking start! Speaking of cracking it looks like mop & bucket is about to do just that in the literal sense of the word; buckling under the pressure of really trying so hard to get right into the floor stains. But it’s an absolutely effortless turn from the commercial floor cleaner, enjoying support in the crowd from the power sweeper and power scrubber, as it has already made its way through half of its floor space in just minutes.
Offering support in the mop & bucket’s corner are a broom and a handful of naughty school children who have been made to pick up papers after school; neither are looking particularly interested in what’s going on, but why would you be when the mop & bucket has only done a quarter of what the commercial floor cleaner has done, right?
AND THE COMMERCIAL FLOOR CLEANER HAS WON! Official times are still to be confirmed but it looks to easily have it in the bag! Efficiency and effectiveness have seen commercial floor cleaners considerably trump the trusted mop & bucket when it comes to cleaning floors. As we await official times and get post-match comments from each of the competitors, watch it all unfold play by play again……
