The Best Way To Keep Your Hard Floors Clean
The Best Mops For Your Hardwoods and Tile Floors
The best way to keep your hard floors clean is with the right mop. Mopping can easily be a dreaded task but the right mop can make it so much easier. I’ve put together a list of the best mops and floor cleaners for all of the hard floor surfaces in your house.
Chose the mop and cleaner that works best for your home then follow my cleaning routine to keep your floors dust-free and shiny. All with the smallest amount of effort.
The Best Mop For Hardwood Floors
A spray mop is hands down the fastest way to keep your floors cleaned up. My personal favorite is the O-Cedar ProMist Max Microfiber Spray Mop. I love how you can fill it with any cleaner of your choice. You push the handle, the solution sprays onto the floor in front of the mop, then you scrub away.
You can move quickly about the house, spraying, then scrubbing. If I feel like the removable mop cloth has gotten too dirty I just remove it, rinse it in the sink, wring it out and reattach it to the mop. Or even better just put on a new one because that’s way more convenient.
Then, when you are all done just toss all the microfiber cloths in the wash.
I have hardwood floors through my whole house and it can be a pain to keep up with. So every Friday I do my best to at least mop the high traffic areas with my handy dandy spray mop.
The mop doesn’t break the bank either. It’s very reasonably priced and gets the job done.
The Best Cleaner For Hardwood Floors
Method Wood Floor Cleaner is the best cleaner for your hardwood floors. It smells good, it cleans up all the dirt and grime and leaves them looking polished.
It’s also plant-based and non-toxic which is a definite plus. It has a sweet almond smell and doesn’t smell like harsh chemicals. Those harsh chemicals will dry out your wood floors anyways.
The Best Mop For Your Tile and Laminate Floors
Well, the best mop for your tile floor is… the O-Cedar Spray Mop. No surprises there. As I mentioned above you can fill it with any cleaner so it can be used on any floor type.
The Best Cleaner For Tile and Laminate Floors
In this case, I just make my own. I take the refillable cleaner bottle off the mop, fill it with half water, half vinegar, and a couple squirts of my favorite dish soap.
This is great for the kitchen, bathroom, and any other hard surface floor in your house. This solution can be used on your hardwood floors as well. However, the vinegar can be a bit harsh on the wood and dry them out.
Another Great Option For Your Tile, Laminate and Hardwood Floors
A steam mop is a fantastic way to keep your hard floors cleaner. It does, however, cost more and you have to use with caution on your hardwood floors. Your floors must be sealed in order to safely use a steam mop on hardwood floors.
Overall this is a great investment and an awesome way to quickly clean your floors. The steam from the heat kills bacteria and loosens up sticky grime. Plus, it is non-toxic because it cleans with just water.
I hope this makes cleaning your hard floors easier for you! 🙂
