When it comes to cleaning floors fast, there are only two basic steps: dry dusting and wet cleaning. Dusting helps to remove large particles of dirt and debris that could scratch and potentially harm your floors, and wet cleaning removes the smaller bits and leaves your floors clean. People often expand these two steps into three or more depending on the tools they have, but essentially, these two steps will do the trick.
A divide and conquer approach is best when cleaning floors. This helps make cleaning more efficient and more effective since you’re not pushing around all the dirt and debris you’re cleaning up. When it’s time for wet cleaning, a string mop and bucket aren’t needed. Use a cleaning pad that will Velcro on the bottom of your mop and has cleaner already infused in the pad so there is just enough liquid dispersed on the floor. Too much liquid on floors can damage them.
