Traditionally flooring professionals have recommended using a rayon mop head to apply floor finish. Rayon mops are lint free and non-absorbent so finish can be applied smoothly with minimum wastage. However, many of our customers have switched to microfiber mop pads for floor finish applications. Microfiber pads are lint free and apparently deliver a thinner, more even coat of finish in a fraction of the time. Microfiber pads also work better in corners and along floorboards. The only downside to using microfiber pads is that they are very absorbent so more finish is required than if using a rayon mop.
