How Often Should Floors Be Mopped?


Question: How Often Should Floors Be Mopped?
Answer: The frequency of your mopping will be determined by how often it is needed. With several small children, I find that the eat-in-kitchen area of my home needs to be quick mopped daily, as well as thoroughly mopped weekly. Other families may not have daily spills that need to be taken care of.

Depending on the traffic of your floors, you may need to mop weekly, biweekly or in some areas only monthly. However, it's best to wipe up obvious dirt as it happens to prevent you from scrubbing on your mopping day.
