Residential cleaning services advise that the most sanitary way to mop floors is by following these steps:

  • Start with a mop and bucket filled with a mixture of water and a disinfectant solution.
  • Begin mopping from the farthest corner of the room and work your way toward the exit to avoid stepping on the freshly cleaned areas.
  • Use overlapping strokes and apply even pressure,
  • Change the mop water regularly to prevent spreading dirt and germs.
  • Pay attention to corners, edges, and hard-to-reach areas where dirt and bacteria can accumulate.
  • Allow the floor to air dry or use a new, dry mop or cloth to remove excess moisture.
  • By following these steps, you can effectively remove dirt, bacteria, and germs, ensuring a sanitary and clean floor surface.
