Always do the baseboards first, (with the rag mop) and make sure that the mop is wet enough (but not soaking) to actually clean the baseboards. Do the entire house at once. It won’t matter how clean your house is at the end of the day, if your baseboards are still dirty, then your house will look dirty.
Use the same mop to wash all of your tile floors. You can do these all at once, or if you prefer you can do a floor at a time.
Whether it’s tile or hardwood, be sure to mop around table and chair legs, and under furniture.
When mopping hardwood floors, use about a cap full of Murphy’s Oil Soap in about 6 liters of warm to hot water. You must get the mop head wet and ring it out by hand, again you want it wet but not soaking wet.
General Moping Tips
Mop your way out of a room, and it helps to keep the mop head going in the same direction of the grain of the hardwood floor – this reduces the chance of streaks forming.
When it’s all dry, put back your mats, chairs, and anything else you picked up off the floor.
