The Mopnado Deluxe Stainless Steel Rolling Spin Mop was developed by brothers Jon and Kevin Chon in response to another spinning mop they were given by their mom. They decided to take the parts of the mop that were good and to improve the rest, coming up with the Mopnado.
The Mopnado Deluxe is a mop and bucket system that prevents users from having to put their hands in dirty water or strain themselves trying to wring out a wet mop. The rolling bucket has two separate areas. In the first area, soap and water (or just water if you prefer) gets the specially designed mop head wet. The second area is a spin dry area that agitates the dirt, debris and water back out of the mop so that you are always starting with a cleaner head.
Everything that you need comes with the set. The Mopnado does not need batteries to spin and you can control how wet or dry the mop head is every single time that you use it.
What Comes in the Box
The Mopnado Deluxe Stainless Steel Rolling mop system comes with the telescoping handle plus an extension for above the ground cleaning needs, the rolling bucket, 2 microfiber mop heads, 1 tile and one scrub brush attachment that can be used for tile and grout and more. Additional microfiber mop heads are also available for purchase in sets of two.
Getting to Know the Mopnado Deluxe Rolling Spin Mop
The kit comes with clear and easy to follow instructions not only to put the handle together but to install the mop head and for its proper use. If the instructions are still confusing or you find you aren’t getting the hang of the spinning part of the process, there are also a number of videos from the company so that you can see the mop in action.
The Mopnado Deluxe handle is made of stainless steel to be more durable than others on the market. It is 56″ long and can be extended through a very easy to use twist and lock function.Simply twist the handle to the desired length and then lock in place. To retract the handle simply twist to unlock and then allow the handle to slide back down in place.
The handle end is designed to pivot so that the mop head can slide under furniture and other items to eliminate the need to move everything out of your way for cleaning. The head also pivots 180 degrees so that it is easy to maneuver around obstacles.
The Microfiber Mop Heads
The Mopnado’s mop heads are soft microfiber and are designed to be used on a wide variety of floors without scratching or damaging them. They are easy to change with the process designed so that you don’t even have to bend over at all. After use, the mop heads can be machine washed and dried. They are described as pretty durable but replacements are also available. Having extra on hand is a good idea for households with small children or pets.
The microfiber heads are designed to be super absorbent so that they can pick up and hold large spills and messes without having to stop and spin every few seconds. You can also use these mop heads completely dry to dust mop or touch up a room without having to lug out the bucket and go through the process of filling it with water. Hardwood floors benefit from a quick dry mopping between deeper cleaning.
The Mopnado Spin Mop Bucket
The mop bucket itself features 2 sides. On one side is the easy to remove and fill soap dispenser. This is the side where you add water. The bucket can hold roughly one gallon of water. On the other side is the spin dry basket which is made of durable stainless steel. This basket will not rust, pick up stains or odors and can be disinfected between uses to prevent mold and mildew growth.
The bucket has two handles including one on the bottom which helps during the emptying process. The other handle is retractable and can be used to pull or to carry the bucket. Two, large plastic wheels help to move the bucket with ease even when it is full of water. Unless they are damaged in some way, these wheels should not damage even fragile flooring.
What Can the Mopnado Deluxe Rolling Spin Mop be Used for?
The mop is designed for most hard flooring types including: laminate, vinyl, hardwood, stone and concrete. The floor should be sealed. The type of cleaning products you use should be decided based on your flooring. If you are in doubt, check with the installer or manufacturer for advice. You can also skip using soap altogether and mop with plain water if you would prefer. There is no need to buy special cleansers.
In addition to the floors, the rolling spin mop can be used to clean windows, ceiling fans, light fixtures, tile and grout and more. There is a scrub brush that can be used to clean some surfaces especially those that may need a little extra cleaning power. Do not use the scrub brush on surfaces that are easily scratched or damaged.
What are the Benefits of Using the Mopnado Deluxe Rolling Spin Mop?
In addition to faster, easier cleaning, the Mopnado is less expensive to use than other mop systems. Disposable mop kits rarely pick up enough dirt to be “clean” and are a waste of money. Even buying the off brand replacement pads can end up costing a lot of money over time. The more that you use them, the higher the cost per use becomes.
Regular mops can be washed out with some mop heads capable of being washed in the machine. Some of those mops can be a pain to put back together and they require bending and wringing as well as touching dirty water. For someone with back issues or with wrist and hand problems, this can be a painful task.
With the spinning agitation system you are keeping more of the dirt that you have picked up in the bucket and not back on the floor.

Is this a recommended spinning mop system?
The spinning action can take some getting used to for it to be effective but most people catch on quickly. The company does provide how to videos plus clearly written instructions to follow on every aspect of use. There is one standard area of concern with this mop but it is easily fixed. Within the first year of use, the mop is covered by the warranty. After that, individual replacement parts are easy to order and to install and are not overly expensive. The bucket might be too heavy for some users, especially older people or those who have chronic conditions such as arthritis or bad backs.
The Mopnado company is responsive to customer questions, concerns and complaints in general and have often responded with offers to repair or replace items even beyond the warranty period. Replacement parts are available for the Mopnado Deluxe so that you don’t have to replace the entire system if one part fails for any reason.
The Mopnado Deluxe Rolling Spin Mop is a fast and easy way to clean the hard surfaces of your home. The microfiber mop heads are soft and non-abrasive and can be washed in your machine between uses. Additional mop heads can be purchased separately if needed. The bucket system is designed to be used with or without soap or other cleansers as appropriate and can be wheeled from room to room.
The entire system can be stored easily by placing the handle and mop heads in the bucket and the rolling it all to a closet, behind a door or in a corner. It takes seconds to get the mop ready to go. Simply fill with water, add your choice of soap or cleaner and then spin the mop head to the desired level of wetness and clean up messes, mop the entire floor or whatever you need to do.
Comparing the price of the Mopnado Deluxe Rolling Spin mop system to other types of mop on the market shows that while it might seem pricey at first, it pays for itself in savings over disposable products. In addition to those savings, it is easier on the environment than using disposable cloths that cannot be washed, used again or recycled in any way.
While the experts suggest that you should mop your hardwood and other types of floors about once a week or every two weeks if you do not have a messy household, people with young children or pets may find they need to do so much more frequently. The Mopnado system can be used for small messes to overall, deep cleaning and everything in between with ease.
