Floor mopping appliance
US 3916470 A
Abstract
A mopping appliance for mopping floors with a damp pad or cloth, comprising a mopping roller enveloped by a mopping pad or a band-shaped floor mopping cloth which runs endlessly over rollers or from one to a second spool and bears on the working surface underneath a mopping shoe or roller. The mopping roller and its enveloping mopping pad or the band-shaped floor mopping cloth is intermittently advanced during the mopping operation to bring a previously unused portion of the mopping pad or mopping cloth into contact with the working surface at every or any selectable forward working stroke of the appliance.
