Our previous mop handle assembly lasted over ten years in commercial use. We got a replacement at a warehouse club and it had a plastic head assembly that lasted less than one month. We needed one in a hurry over a weekend and got a similar one at the Super Center that also owns the club. It lasted less than one week. Some problem on both - the plastic hinge broke. Ordered this metal head mop and it has been doing fine. I strongly recommend the metal head over the plastic ones.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
