How To Mop Different Types of Flooring?


  We like to beautify our houses with different types of laminate, tiles, or hardwood flooring. While they look impressive, they also need proper care. While the above instructions tell you how to mop a floor properly, some flooring may have special requirements. Read on to find out special cleaning needs for different types of flooring used at homes.

    1.Laminate Flooring
While laminates may imitate the appearance of stone or hardwood, you will still need to care for them as laminates. As they are made with sun and light resistant materials, they don't get damaged easily. While mopping a laminate floor you must avoid water from getting underneath the planks. Expert house cleaners suggest that you vacuum clean the floor and dry mop once a week.
You may spot clean the stubborn areas with a damp mop but don't use too much water.f a plank looks damaged, resist your temptation of polishing the floor. It is better to replace the damaged plank with a new one.
    2. Hardwood Flooring
The hardwood flooring typically come in two finishes - wax and polyurethane. The sealed wood  flooring may have a polyurethane, urethane, or polyacrylic coating that prevents water damage and stains. To mop hardwood floors, mix a 4 cup of mild soap in a bucket of water and damp mop with a microfiber cloth to prevent excess moisture.
Hardwood flooring do not require a lot of maintenance. Just sweeping and vacuum cleaning every 2-3 days may be enough.Mop the high-traffic areas of the house once a week and the remaining you can do just once a month.
    3. Natural Stone Flooring
This type of flooring is extremely sensitive to acidic cleaning solutions, so never use vinegar to mop the floor. Even a small amount of vinegar, ammonia, or bleach could damage the surface. I recommend using only pH-neutral cleaners that would not react to the minerals in these surfaces.
If the stone flooring is unsealed, only use a damp mop to clean the surface and avoid any type of chemicals as they can damage the stone. Use a steam cleaner to get rid of the stubborn dirt.
    4. Porcelain Tile Flooring
To keep your porcelain tile floor looking primp and proper it's enough to clean weekly using the spray and mop technique.In a spray bottle, mix together warm water. 1/4 cup.
  Hope you to got the suitable way to cleaning the floor!
