You don’t just want to use any old mop to clean your hardwood floors. There are many types of mops, and methods of cleaning that can actually be harmful to wood. When repeated over time, these techniques and tools will actually cause damage to your floors, decrease the lifetime, and even cause them to look bad. You will want to take special care when cleaning wood floors to ensure that they look nice and last for a long time. One of the most important choices you will make is the kind of mop you use.
A lot of folks think that maintaining hardwood is a real pain, but it can actually be quite easy if you go about it in the right way. The part that is a pain is the risk of damage. You never want to use too much water on wood floors, and many mops are designed to be used with ample water that results in puddling on the floor. This can lead to damage over time because even the best sealed floors are susceptible to damage by moisture. Certain cleaning solutions will also contain harsh chemicals and other ingredients that are not good for your floors either. These cleaners can destroy the finish on your floors and even damage the wood itself. You always have to be careful that you are using the right kind of cleaner and the right amount. The easiest way to prevent damage to hardwood floors when cleaning them is to eliminate the harsh cleansers, and reduce the amount of liquid applied to the floor. This is why a microfiber mop is the perfect type of mop to use on wood floors.
A microfiber mop uses very little water and does not require any additional cleansers to get your floors clean. Just get the reusable pad damp and glide the mop across your floors to get them super clean in a hurry. You will be removing 99% of all dirt, dust, germs and grime from your floors with only a tiny bit of water as the detergent. You will be using so little water that your floors will be dry seconds after you get them clean. This means no streaking, no additional drying, and absolutely no damage to your beautiful hardwood floors.
Once mopping is complete simply remove the pad and throw it in the laundry. Our microfiber mop pads are totally reusable and can be washed hundreds of times before they need to be replaced. The advanced microfiber material these pads are made of is what makes the mop so great. The advanced material will glide effortlessly across your floor and the teeny tiny fibers will skim the surface to remove all of the dirty build-up. Microfiber has the unique ability to clean and polish at the same time, so your floors will look better than ever in very little time. A single cleaning with one of our microfiber mops will thoroughly clean the surface, and leave floors naturally polished.
If you have never used a microfiber mop, then you will be amazed at just how well they clean along with how ridiculously easy they are to use. The chore of mopping is transformed from a dreaded chore into a quick and simple task. There is no prep work of preparing buckets or filling sinks, and you will never have to go over your floor more than once or spend any time drying after you should already be finished. You will be able to get your floors cleaner in less time with a microfiber mop, and you will also save money as you use it. Microfiber mops are totally eco friendly and don’t leave any sort of residue or film on your floors. You can feel good about kids and pets getting close to the floor, and there wont be any sticky layer that only attracts more dirt quicker.
