Vacuuming before mopping is recommended by many professional cleaners. Vacuuming will make it easier for you to sweep and clean afterwards, especially if your interior floor is made of hard surfaces. Some people like to clean first, then dust, sweep, and vacuum as a pre-cleaning procedure. There are a variety of cleaning requirements for different types of floor surfaces. Unless there are stains or evident filth on the floor, some floors don’t need to be mopped or vacuumed every time.
Before you begin mopping, perhaps this article can help you learn more about the mopping process and vacuum cleaners. Is there more to them than tidying up your home?
The most important things to know about mopping are the following:
No matter how diligent you are about not lingering or spilling, dust will eventually find its way into your home. It’s an inevitability of life. And while you could just live with the dust, eventually, it will become visible on your floors, furniture, and other surfaces. Not only is this unsightly, but it can also be dangerous for people with allergies or asthma.
That’s why it’s important to have a regular cleaning schedule that includes vacuuming and mopping. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your cleaning routine:
If you have hardwood floors, vacuuming with a brush attachment is the best way to clean them. Be sure to vacuum in the direction of the grain to avoid damaging the wood.
For tile or linoleum floors, use a damp mop or sponge mop. You can also use a dry mop, but be sure to sweep the floor first to remove any dirt or debris that could scratch the surface.
For carpets, vacuuming is the best way to remove dirt and dust. Be sure to vacuum in both directions to get all the dirt and dust out of the fibres.
The best way to clean your floors depends on the type of flooring you have. If you’re not sure, consult a professional cleaner or the manufacturer of your flooring for guidance.
