Mopping Facts:

You start off mopping by getting a nice clean container with fresh water and add in the appropriate cleaner for your type of floor. Then you take the mop and soak up the liquid and wring it out. After you have mopped an area you need to re soak the mop and add more cleaner. Well this is where the problem is: you are now adding a dirty mop to clean water and wringing the dirt and grime into your nice clean container. This means you are now pushing around the dirt from the first part of the floor cleaning. Mopping can keep the floor looking clean, but it isn’t as clean as you think since most of the dirt is not being disposed of – it is just being moved around.
