Abstract
(EN)
An apparatus (10) for scrubbing and mopping a surface (11), comprising in combination, a supporting carrier (13), including a block and scrubbing media (12, 90) carried by the carrier, to project toward the surface for scrubbing that surface; first structure (30) for attaching an elongated handle (31) to the carrier (13) to extend in a first direction from the carrier; and second manually manipulable structure (65) for attaching a mop (35) to the carrier (13), with mop strands (36) extending in generally parallel relation with that surface and in mopping contact therewith, as the scrubbing media (12, 90) simultaneously engages that surface, for simultaneous mopping and scrubbing of that surface, as the handle (31) extends at an angle to the surface to display the carrier (13), bristles (14) and mop (35) parallel to the surface, and to transmit downward force to the scrubbing means (12, 90); structure including a transversely lengthwise extending bar (65), about which a portion of the mop (35) extends; and there being at least one projection (68) on the carrier (13) for engaging the mop (35) to block bodily movement of said mop portion transversely lengthwise of the bar (65).
(FR)
L'invention concerne un appareil (10) pour nettoyer et balayer une surface (11) qui comprend une combinaison d'un support (13), constitué d'un bloc et d'un dispositif de nettoyage (12, 90) fixés au support, qui fait saillie en direction d'une surface et sert à nettoyer cette surface; une première structure (30) destinée à fixer un manche (31) allongé au support (13), qui fait saillie depuis ledit support dans une première direction; et une deuxième structure (65) manipulable manuellement qui sert à attacher un balai au support (13), les brins (36) du balai (35) s'étendant en général parallèlement à la surface et balayant celle-ci pendant que le dispositif de nettoyage entre en contact avec ladite surface, et ce pour nettoyer et balayer la surface simultanément. Le manche (31) est placé à un certain angle par rapport à la surface qui permet de déplacer le support (13), le crin (14) et le balai (35) parallèlement à la surface et de transmettre au dispositif de nettoyage (12, 90) une force dirigée vers le bas. L'appareil de l'invention comprend aussi une structure qui comprend une barre transversale (65) qui s'étend en longueur et par rapport à laquelle s'étend une partie du balai (35). En outre, le support (13) comporte au moins une protubérance (68) qui sert à mettre en prise le balai (35) pour bloquer le mouvement physique de la partie susmentionnée du balai en travers du sens de la longueur de la barre (65).
