Step 1

  • The first and most obvious thing to do is to clear the area. Remove any tables, chairs, rugs, vases and flower pots.
  • If you want to clean any of those things first, do it before cleaning the floors in case any debris falls on the floor.
  • Additionally, clean any other surfaces like countertops, tabletops, etc., before mopping the floor.

Step 2

Now that you are done, it is time to sweep the floor. It may seem strange to clean something you are about to clean, but moping while there is solid debris, hair or dust is simply impossible.

Step 3

Place the desired floor cleaner into the bucket and fill it with the proper amount of water (according to the cleaner’s instructions).

  • Note: Don’t use cleaner than you need! Maybe the smell from it will be stronger and will last longer, but be sure that the mop will leave a residue, and that is not the desired result from mopping, right?
  • If out of floor cleaner, use dish-washing detergent.

Step 4

Dip the mop in the bucket and let it soak a good amount of the solution. Once soaked, wring all the excess water out of your mop.

Step 5

Start mopping from one corner of the area and once the mop looks dirty, dip the mop into the bucket, wring it and move on to the next area.

Tip: If you are dealing with polyurethaned hardwood floors, move the mop with the grain of the wood. When cleaning textured floors, on the other hand, move the mop in small eight circles.
