These are the best mops to clean your gorgeous hardwood floor swiftly and safely. Check out our top picks of 2021.
And the best is… this microfiber spray mop.
Cleaning the precious hardwood floor isn’t difficult. You take a mop, wet it, and scrub the dirt out. If you do it often enough, you don’t need to scrub it that intensively. The question is, what mop is the best for it?
If there’s one answer to that, it’s the microfiber mop. Whatever the type of the mop itself, if it uses a microfiber pad or string head, it will clean hardwood nicely. The reason? Microfiber is the best material for cleaning overall. It has great properties to collect dirt and dust thanks to its many fibers that it consists of.
What makes a microfiber mop even better for hardwood floors is the spraying or wringing mechanism. You see, wood isn’t friends with water, especially if it’s not sealed (or the seal is worn). That’s why you need to clean it with a mildly wet floor avoiding excess water from seeping into the floor.
And of course, you can have upgraded features such as electric polishers and LED headlights, if you prefer. But even a simple mop with a good wringing mechanism will do just fine.
We’ve picked all kinds of mops in this top 10 (exciting, isn’t it?) One of them stood out the most, but feel free to prove us wrong.
