Washing your kitchen floor is like washing your hair: the longer you wait, the harder it becomes. Today, we will look at three ways to clean a kitchen floor and consider when each might be best.
- One option is to use a scrubber
This is a good choice for dirt and light stains. A scrubber has long-handled handles and bristles that are large enough to lift food particles while performing floor maintenance.
When to use a scrubber
A scrubber is best used to remove food and dirt once they are already well attached to the floor. This means that adding soap and water to the floor is helpful because it helps the food stick to the brush’s bristles. It also does an excellent job of removing fine debris from the floor.
- A mop
Mops are the best tools for removing the buildup of fatty soils that accumulate on the kitchen floor. Mops are also helpful for scrubbing away scum and heavy dirt deposits.
When to use a mop
In general, mops are best used when the floor is relatively clean and in need of only light scrubbing. This means that the best time to use a mop is when you have already used a scrubber to lift away larger food particles from the floor. Then, once the larger food debris has been removed, a mop can be used to rinse away small particles and take care of any remaining stains.
- A steam mop
Steam mops can be an excellent choice for cleaning and sanitizing kitchen floors. Steam mops sanitize the floor and remove organic matter with steam, which will sterilize the surface. This means that steam mops can serve a dual purpose: cleaning and sanitizing.
When to use a steam mop
Steam mops are best used when dealing with relatively clean surfaces that still need to be sanitized. This means that steam mops are best suited for use after you have already removed any dirt and food from the floor.
Keeping your kitchen floor clean is a must since it’s the area where you prepare your meals. Best keep it clean from food debris and other stains if you don’t like seeing them all over your floor.
A dirty kitchen floor can quickly get out of hand. Not only will it make your kitchen look messy, but it will also be a breeding ground for bacteria.
Now that you know the best way to wash a floor in your kitchen, you better keep yours clean and food-safe.
