1. First, make sure the mop pad is installed correctly. The U-shaped edge of the pad lines up with the U-shaped edge of the mop head. If the pad is incorrectly installed, wear-holes may form prematurely and the mop won’t be able to flip from side to side.
2. What type of flooring are you cleaning? Abrasive flooring such as rough tile, brick, etc. will impact the pad more than smooth vinyl flooring. If you’re cleaning a more abrasive surface, you’ll wear out the mop pads more quickly.
3. Make sure to follow the washing instructions. Mop pads can be cleaned in the washing machine on the regular cycle with warm water and mild detergent. Do not use bleach or fabric softener, as they will damage the mop pads.
