Mopping generally includes cleaning all the hard floor surfaces inside your home. Mopping methods and services can vary from cleaner to cleaner, but in general, here’s what you can expect:
This is the most common type of mopping that’s ideal for most floor conditions (even heavily soiled floors). The cleaner will use a mop and cleaning agent in a bucket to clean your floor. Depending on what type of floor you have - whether it’s tile, stone, concrete, or timber - your cleaner may use a different type of cleaning agent to ensure the best result without damaging your floors. After they arrive, your cleaner will first vacuum or sweep the floor to remove any loose debris. Next, they’ll mop the floors with a wet mop to remove any stains. They’ll finish up with a dry mop to minimise wet residue left on your floor and leave a sparkly clean finish.
Steam mopping is ideal for maintenance cleaning or lightly soiled floors. That’s it’s best for sanitising, rather than removing large quantities of dirt and grime. Your cleaner will first make sure the floor is suitable for steam mopping. Floors without seals, such as exposed wood, are unsuitable for steam mopping as moisture can damage the surface. To prepare the floor, your cleaner will first remove any loose dirt and grit from the floor by vacuuming or sweeping. Next they’ll prepare the mop pads on the steamer, switch it on, and then steam mop all your hard floor surfaces. Steam mopped floors usually dry within a few minutes, but if there are any wet patches, your cleaner will mop them up with a dry towel.
One-off mopping services are popular for post-event cleanups or end-of-lease cleans. Depending on your needs, your cleaner will either mop or steam mop your floors. Your cleaner will discuss what type of floors you have and what areas you need to be cleaned prior to their arrival. They’ll turn up with the correct solutions and equipment to properly clean your floors. After a sweep or vacuum to remove dust, they’ll use either traditional mopping or steam mopping to clean your floors, depending on your floor type.
You can hire a cleaner to mop your floors on a regular basis (weekly, fortnightly, or monthly) so that your floors are always in great condition. Your cleaner may alternate between regular mopping and steam mopping to give you the benefits of both, depending on your floor type. Note that regular steam cleaning isn’t ideal for hardwood floors as the steam can penetrate the seams of the floorboards where the wood is exposed. So, for hardwood floors, the cleaner may just mop your floors the traditional way.
