If you mop your floor each and every day, you may brag to your friends that your floors are so clean that you can eat off of them. Be careful with the brag, as no mop is going to make that floor that clean. Instead of hoping that your floors are clean, so some things to make sure that they really are. If you could really put your food down there and eat it, you would be a rare person that has the time to clean floors like they should be. It is hard with children and work for many women to really get their floors clean, but try once a week to do a really good floor cleaning and you will feel a lot better.
Floor cleaning is something that is hit and miss in many homes. As long as you do your best to keep up in common areas, you are not doing too bad. You don’t want anyone eating off the floor, but you do want to keep up dirty and crumbs, and any sticky messes that may come your way. A mop can clean up some things, but you can not rely on it for all of your floor cleaning episodes. When cleaning the bathroom, you are dealing with more than just dirt, so you have to be more careful. A mop is definitely not going to cut it in that room.
There are new mops or cleaners out now that use steam for floor cleaning. If you are going to invest in anything for your floors that do not have carpeting, this is the one. Steam is really all that you need. This requires no detergent and works on any type of flooring except for carpet. You may have to use with caution on hardwoods, but even they can use a light steam once in a great while if they are properly sealed. Killing germs and getting up dirt are the aims of floor cleaning, and this can do those both easily and better than any other type of mop.
Otherwise, you have to go about floor cleaning the old fashioned way. I use to work for a maid service and we were not allowed to touch a mop, unless were were dry dusting hardwood floors. We had to get down on our hands and knees to clean a floor with a rag (or six) and a scrub brush. Otherwise, the floors were simply not coming clean. You have to make sure you are using water as hot as you can get it, or you are going to leave grease on the floor, which is what causes it to pick up dirt quicker and also causes it to appear dingy. There is no way around it, you got to scrub it yourself on occasion to really know it is clean.
Even though a mop is not the best choice for floor cleaning, but it does not mean it does not belong in your home. If you have a spill, a mop is a great way to clean it up quickly. You can not clean your floors on your hands and knees all the time, so these offer you a quick clean up in the meantime. Just remember to change or wash your mop heads often, as they can quickly grow bacteria that you will just be spreading back on your floor. Allow them to air dry fully before putting away for best results on your next floor cleaning.
