Hardwood floors, like any other flooring, need constant cleaning. To do this, a variety of devices are used. Mops are the most popular of them. You can find additional info here.
Choosing A Mop For Hardwood Floors
Use a soft-bristled brush or a mop to sweep such a floor two or three times a week. This will prevent scratches on the surface of the floor caused by the abrasive action of sand and dirt. In addition, sweeping allows you to reduce the intensity of wet cleaning.
Such a floor needs to be vacuumed once or twice a week. This will remove smaller particles of dirt and dust that can accumulate in cracks and floor seams.
To choose a mop, you must adhere to the following restrictions:
- – for high-quality cleaning, it is necessary that the washing part should be removable;
- – the hardwood floor is “afraid” of water, so the washing part in the device should be well wrung out;
- – it is not recommended to affect the floor with hot steam.
It is not always convenient to use a device with a sponge nozzle for cleaning, since traces may remain while washing.The best option is either a regular T–shaped mop or a special one, since the cleaning cloth and nozzle can be well wrung out, they also perfectly clean the floor surface from dirt and dust.
A special mop is a tool in which a rectangular platform is attached to a telescopic handle. A replaceable nozzle made of cotton or microfiber is put on it. The transverse platform can rotate and be positioned at any angle to the handle, so this type of mop is convenient to use for cleaning in hard-to-reach places. However, microfiber must be constantly removed from the platform, manually rinsed and wrung out.
Careful attitude to the parquet board is the key to its long service life and beautiful appearance. Have a nice cleaning!
