7 Tips And Tricks For Better Floor-Mopping

7 tips tricks for better floor mopping

If you're like most homeowners, you know that some maintenance tasks are more difficult than others. And when the task in question is something that needs to be done on a regular basis, it can seem downright daunting! This is why we've come up with this list of basic floor mopping tips for all our readers. These tips will help make sure your floors are looking their best year-round, and they'll make your home feel more welcoming, too!

Easy Mopping Techniques

  • Always vacuum or sweep before mopping! This removes debris and dirt particles that will get caught in the rag or mop head.
  • When mopping, always use cold water to avoid leaving water spots.
  • Use the right mop for your floor type. A microfiber mop on a tile or stone floor can scratch and dull the finish; always use a natural bristle mop on these surfaces instead.
  • In between mopping, sprinkle a little bit of white vinegar on your mop head to cut through any grease or grime build-up. This is especially helpful for bathroom flooring.
  • Never dry-mop laminate floors with a dry rag or with newspaper; you'll end up scratching the surface and causing damage.
  • Clean tile and stone floor grout regularly. If your floors are in need of a deep clean, consider renting a steam cleaner, which will cut through grease and grime much more effectively than a mop or broom.
  • For vinyl flooring, always use warm water for mopping, and never use soap (which can leave residue).
