Tools of the Trade: Mops

Our floors make up huge part of our homes. They are found in every room, and they are an intimate part of our lives: we walk on them, lie on them, sleep on them and more. The services we can provide to you are important to maintain your flooring, but there are day-to-day things that you need to do on your own, as well. This is the second post in a series of posts addressing different tools available to you: vacuums, mops and brooms. Let’s talk mops.

 

Like vacuums, there are a lot of different types of mops to choose from—flat mops, sponge mops, string mops, dust mops and steam mops—and like vacuums, which one you select will depend on your specific needs. Mopping is not required nearly as often as vacuuming and sweeping, and will depend largely on the amount of traffic the area receives. You will probably want to mop your kitchen and bathrooms weekly, but your dining room and entryway can probably manage with biweekly mopping.

 

Why is it important to mop? Sweeping and vacuuming removes a lot of the soil and dirt from our floors, there is inevitably going to be some left behind. Mopping helps to grab the pieces left behind, and also addresses those sticky areas on our non-carpeted floors from spills that may have occurred.
