HAMILTON, OH — Kaivac Inc. has announced that the door has now closed to any further entries in the company''s Dirty Mop Contest, according to a press release.

According to the release, the winner will notified by e-mail and on Kaivac''s Facebook site on December 5, 2011.
"Other than one news story about the contest, we really have not promoted it all that much. We just let our Facebook fans spread the word and we received about 25 entries," said Matt Morrison, communications manager for Kaivac.
"We wanted people to have fun with this, but there is a very serious side to the contest as well. We now know that soiled mops are just not healthy. Instead of removing contaminants, they can spread them far and wide. That''s not what cleaning is all about, and this results in floor safety issues as well," Morrison added.
