No more swishing and sloshing around dirty mop water around on your floor. No more stinky mop heads. And most importantly, (for extending the life of your floors and protecting your investment) no more leaving harsh chemicals on your floor which trap dirt and even leave a potentially damaging film behind on the surface of your floors.
But fret no more! The tips below are tried tested and true by the most experienced of cleaners and without a doubt will leave the floors in your home spotless for many years to come.
First and foremost, stop using anything that is not a neutral ph cleaner and rinse free! The Ph level of the cleaning agent indicates if it an alkaline or an acid. A ph of 7 is considered neutral (same ph as water). Clean and Green is a great example or a rinse free neutral cleaner that is safe for all flooring types including natural stone.
Ditch the mop and bucket and go with microfiber! Home depot carries the Rubbermaid Floor Kit.Rubbermaid produces a high quality product that is inexpensive (under $40), durable and most certainly battle tested in a commercial setting. The head which is blue and coarse is for wet cleaning while the head which is green and has loop fringes is used to remove dust and debris prior to wet cleaning.
After dust mopping, soak your clean mop heads in the neutral ph rinse free cleaning solution in a bucket a and ring the mop head out and begin cleaning your floor. Monitor the level of soil and debris on your mop head and change when needed. Avoid cross contamination and never put a used mop head back in to your clean bucket with the clean mop heads. Depending on frequency of cleaning and soil levels, each mop head can clean between 50-200 sqft of flooring.
