It’s time for spring cleaning, which means it’s time to tackle those floors. If you’ve are going to take on the mopping duties yourself, there are a few things that the trusted team at Maid in Melbourne think you should know about mops. There are all kinds available, and they’re suited to different floors and requirements. Make sure your home cleaning is optimised by choosing the right mop for your needs.
Flat mops are the ones that usually come with a disposable head that you either throw away or wash and reuse. They’re an easy option to have around the house for everyday spills and clean-ups. They’re the best mop to use if you’re trying to get into corners, scrub away grime, and have on hand for everyday maintenance cleaning of any kind of floor.
Similar to flat mops, sponge mops often have a disposable sponge that you can replace when the old one stops doing its job. These are ideal for tile or uneven flooring surfaces because they can be moulded around the gaps and spaces on the floor to clean out all the dirt.
Dust mops are perfect for dry messes on any surface you have in the house such as floors, walls, light fixtures, and ceiling corners. Wherever you have dust, cobwebs, or fluff, dust mops can reach in and clean it out. These mops come in a range of different materials, so you can choose the one you like best for your home and surfaces.
These are cheap and great for all kinds of floor surfaces. They may not be the best in terms of maintaining their own cleanliness, but when you need something that can really scrub away at caked-on spills, you can’t go wrong with a string mop.
Strip mops are similar to string mobs in that they consist of a bunch of strips of material, but these modern mops are usually accompanied by some sort of wringing mechanism that makes them a lot easier to clean and care for. They combat tough grime, are gentle, and they’re a good option for whatever type of flooring you have.
Steam mops are the electric version of a traditional mop. They come with a built-in water tank that steams out the head to help lift off dirt and stains with ease. These are certainly a more expensive mop, but they get the job done. They’re particularly good for getting in and sanitising the grout on tile floors.
