Wet mops are usually used to clean bathroom and kitchen floors and can be put in water and rinsed when cleaning is done. Your wet mops should be cleaned and dried out on a regular basis to make them able for its use. If the cotton strings fray at the ends, it should be trimmed or removable heads replaced.
Dry or Dust mops are usually large, plane head mops. The fibers pick up dirt, hair, and lint as it moves easily over the floor. It can be pushed under beds and in other places with limited access. You may want to use “dust mops oil” when the mop is clean and dry to treat the mop for more efficiency and save it for longer. To keep dry mop heads, it is required to soak it for overnight in soap water. Removable mop heads can be machine washed.

The polyester band used for fastening can be helpful to DIY for tile and grout stain removal from the surface being cleaned. Kentucky Mops are useful for cleaning large areas. They come in different formats and yarns. The mop heads are also easy to detached and attached with the use of a metal clip and plate.
Use durable cotton fiber mops. These types of mops are greatly absorbent and are fit for house use as well as commercial flooring. Twine threads are thinner and its toughness is ideal for a more professional work. Multi-fold yarns are made for long-lasting cleaning. We definitely recommend using a Wringer bucket to get rid of excess water before taking the mop to floor to prevent lines on the floor after finishing.
As an alternative of cotton strings, you can also use microfiber mops. These types of mops are good all-purpose mops. The microfiber strands are delicate and thin sufficient to capably for clean hardwood floors, stone floors and tile floor alike. Microfiber is great absorbent however, a wringer bucket is important.
Bad choice mobs. Dusting wipers and tile cleaning or sponge roller mops are the least fit for tile floors and walls because it leaves hidden dust on the grout.
Cleaning mops. You should properly wash in detergent, wash with clean water, wring dry and store your mop upside down after use.

In bathrooms and kitchens the water should be hot, to be able to kill microbes. To be really germ-free, it is suggested that surface areas should also be washed with clean, hot water.
It is important to train your cleaning workers or domestic worker to recognize the importance your mop plays in the overall cleaning process. They should learn exactly how to use, clean and keep your cleaning tools.
Your floor must be swept or vacuumed clean before mopping. We saw many inexperienced domestic worker not following this process. That causes dust to just move around (and some left behind after,) where floors are being mopped.
Always begin at the corner furthest away from the room entry and from there, move your way out of the room.
Keep the water bucket behind you to avoid bucket marks and splashed water on your completed areas.
It is best to use your mop in an “s” pattern across the surface to stop water and trash splashing everywhere, but please avoid using your back muscles – use your arm muscles to keep away from back strain.
