Description

Our Ref: 4662 P/00/009 Regulation 3.2 AUSTRALIA Patents Act 1990 INNOVATION SPECIFICATION FOR AN INVENTION ENTITLED Invention title: Floor Cleaning Utensil Name of Applicant: Cheng-Chung Hsu Address for Service A.P.T. Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys PO Box 222 Mitcham, S.A. 5062 The invention is described in the following statement: FLOOR CLEANING UTENSIL BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION a) Field of the Invention 5 The present invention relates to a floor cleaning utensil, and more particularly to a floor cleaning utensil which is applied by a mop and a matched water bucket. b) Description of the Prior Art A mop can be one of the most popular floor cleaning utensils 10 nowadays. As being provided with an extremely good wiping effect and being able to be washed repeatedly for use, the mop is widely used to clean a floor. In addition, in using the mop to wipe the floor, the mop must be washed repeatedly that the mop can maintain the cleaning function it should have. However, due to that it is inconvenient to fetch water 15 (especially to clean a floor of a large area), normally when using the mop to clean the floor, a water bucket will mostly be prepared at a side to facilitate submerging the mop into the water bucket freely for scrubbing repeatedly, thereby removing smudges on the mop. On the other hand, it is preferably to squeeze dry the mop properly 20 after soaking the mop, so as to achieve the best cleaning effect. As a 2 result, a kind of water bucket with a dehydration tank further shows up on street stalls. In using a mop which matches with that water bucket, cottons are fixed on a rotary table which rotates relatively with respect to a grip rod, such that a user can hold the grip rod by hands to extend the 5 cottons to the dehydration tank, and then use a pedal to drive the dehydration tank, along with the cottons, to rotate in a high speed, thereby achieving an object of squeezing dry the mop by an effect of centrifugal force. Nevertheless, although the water bucket, similar to the 10 aforementioned one, in the conventional floor cleaning utensil, is provided with the dehydration function to squeeze dry the mop; the cleaning means to the mop itself is more passive relatively. As the smudges on the mop can only be removed by scrubbing the mop up and down, the cleaning result to the mop is rather limited. 15 For the purposes of this specification the word "comprising" means "including but not limited to", and the word "comprises" has a corresponding meaning. Also a reference within this specification to a document is not to be taken as an admission that the disclosure therein constitutes common general knowledge in Australia. 3 SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION Accordingly, the primary object of the present invention is to provide a floor cleaning utensil which is provided with a mop cleaning function and a mop dehydration function. 5 To achieve the aforementioned object, the floor cleaning utensil of the present invention includes a water bucket and a mop, wherein an interior of a bucket body of the water bucket is provided with a dehydration tank and a cleaning rod which can be driven to rotate by a pedal; cottons of the mop are fixed on a rotary table which rotates 10 relatively with respect to a grip rod of the mop, such that a user can hold the grip rod by hands to extend the cottons to the cleaning rod of the water bucket and step on the pedal by a foot to drive the cleaning rod to rotate in a high speed, thereby achieving an object of washing the mop under an effect that the cleaning rod agitates water flow rapidly or the 15 cleaning rod scrubs the cottons directly. Moreover, the user can hold the grip rod by hands to extend the cottons into the dehydration tank of the water bucket and step on the pedal by a foot to drive the dehydration tank, along with the cottons, to rotate in a high speed, thereby achieving an object of squeezing dry the mop under an effect of centrifugal force. 20 Another object of the present invention is to provide a floor cleaning 4 utensil, wherein a bottom of the bucket body of the water bucket is provided with plural rollers and an exterior of the bucket body is provided with a hook holder to hook the grip rod of the mop, so as to facilitate dragging the water bucket to move. 5 Still another object of the present invention is to provide a floor cleaning utensil, wherein an opening of the bucket body of the water bucket is provided with two cover plates which are covered opposite to each other, and positions at the two cover plates, opposite to the cleaning rod and the dehydration tank, are provided with notches to hold 10 the grip rod of the mop, so as to cover the two cover plates while washing or dehydrating the mop, thereby preventing slops in the water bucket from spilling out. To enable a further understanding of the said objectives and the technological methods of the invention herein, the brief description of the 15 drawings below is followed by the detailed description of the preferred embodiments.
