1 Claim. 1

The object of this invention is to devise a novel cleaning device which can be employed for both scrubbing and cleaning. Where only a mop is provided, it is difiicult to remove spots on linoleum and floors, and in our device the spots and material adhering to a surface can be first loosened by the use of the bristles and the water and foreign material picked up by the mop.

A further object of the invention is to devise a novel construction and arrangement of a combined scrubber and mop, which can be economically manufactured, and which will be durable in practice.

With the foregoing and other objects in view as will hereinafter clearly appear, our invention comprehends a novel scrubbin and mopping device,

It further comprehends a novel device of the character stated wherein flexible and absorbent material for collecting the water from a surface is secured to a face of a mop head, which latter is provided with bristles disposed at an angle to the mop material.

For the purpose of illustrating the invention, we have shown in the accompanying drawings a preferred embodiment of it which We have found in practice to give satisfactory and reliable results. It is, however, to be understood that the various instrumentalities of which the invention consists can be variously arranged and organized and the invention is not limited to the exact arrangement and organization of these instrumentalities as herein set forth.

Figure 1 is a perspective view of a scrubbing and mopping device, embodying our invention.

Figure 2 is a section on line 2-2 of Figure 1.

Figure 3 is an end elevation showing the brush as in position to engage a surface to be cleaned.

Figure 4 is a front elevation.

Similar numerals of reference indicate corresponding parts.

Referring to the drawings:

The scrubbing and mopping device has a body portion l, the upper face of which curves downwardly and rearwardly as at 2. One wall of the body portion is recessed at 3 to form shoulders 4 between which layers of flexible and absorbent mop material 5 is secured by a suitable adhesive or in any other desired or conventional manner. A face 6 of the body portion at right angles to conform to the shape of such upper face.

2 the mop material has bristles I inserted thereinto in any conventional manner.

The upper face of the body portion is covered by a thin strip of aluminum 8 which is curved 1X fastening device 9 in the form of a headed bolt passes through the body portion and is provided with a thumb nut II].

A handle socket H is tubular to receive a handle l2, and its lower end is flattened into a curved plate I3 through which the bolt passes. The handle is preferably secured to the body portion to form a forty five degree angle with the surface to be cleaned.

In the operation the body portion is moved over the surface to be cleaned with the mop material in contact with such surface. If spots or foreign material are present on the surface being cleaned which the mop material will not remove, the body portion is turned into the position seen in Figure 3 and the brush will contact with the surface to be cleaned.

The handle is arranged at the proper angle to exert a downward and a forward pressure when the mop material or the brush is being used.

In the use of devices of this character, the mop head is dipped into a receptacle containing the cleaning solution, and, since the body portion is usually made of wood, the plate 8 serves as a protection for the wood and forms a water shed for quick drainage of the water from the upper face of the body portion.

The mop material 5 may be of cellulose sponge, sponge rubber or any other desired suitable material for absorbing the dirty water, and the brush may have its bristles of any desired material arranged in any desired manner.

Having thus described our invention, What we claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

A scrubbing and mopping device, comprising an elongated block having its bottom and a side face at substantially right angles to each other and intended to receive cleaning material, the top face of the block being convex transversely and straight longitudinally of the block and inclining rearwardly and downwardly from said side face, a cover plate conforming generally to the contour of and covering substantially the entire top face of the block, a handle having one end shaped to conform to the contour of the cover REFERENCES CITED The following referenlces are of record in the file of this patent:
