Is there a device for quick drying of a mop? I mean a traditional mop with
rope-like strands, head not remove-able. I seem to have irradicated some
snow fleas by caulking up edges of a sink and bathtub, and I don't want to
create a hospitable environment for them to return by taking several days f
or a mop head to dry. Ideally, the device (be it a rack or something) shou
ld be collapsable due to space issues. Googling mop-drying-rack doesn't tu
rn up anything relevant.

There isn't anything I know of. But, simply standing the mop on its handle and
parting the strands down the middle will usually get everything bone dry by the
next day. Assuming, you don't shove it in a closet and rather, stand it up out
on the porch or even in sunlight.
Otherwise, leaving a fan blowing on it or treating it like wet hair with a
hairdryer will speed up the process considerably. This, would be along the rack
idea you're looking for, by using any barbecue or oven rack to lay the head and
its strands on.
However, the head is removable...it got on the handle somehow. In that case,
most people treat the heads like clothing and run them, without the metal, in
the clothes washer and dryer. This is the absolute best method and allows you to
sanitize the mop head quite easily.
