Mopping: which cleaning agent should I use?

You want to start mopping, but you're wondering which cleaning agent is best to use. Sounds familiar, huh? Difficult question, because there is no universal answer to it. This has to do with your type of floor! In this article we explain which cleaning agent is best for mopping, so that you too can enjoy a wonderfully clean floor.

Mopping different types of floors

Before we delve into the ideal cleaning product, it's important to understand that different floor types have different needs. Let's discuss some common types of flooring:

  1. Clean tile floors

Tile floors are popular for their durability and aesthetic appearance. For tile floors, we recommend using a pH-neutral cleaning agent to prevent damage to the grout. Our recommended cleaning product for tile floors is HG Tile Cleaner .

  1. Cleaning wooden floors

Wooden floors require special care. Never use too much water as this can damage the wood. A mild wood cleaning agent, such as HG wood oil floor cleaner, works great in our experience!

  1. Laminate floors

Laminate floors benefit from a gentle cleaner that does not leave streaks. You can easily buy an HG laminate cleaner in the supermarket. This is an excellent choice for keeping your laminate floors shiny and clean.

The perfect universal cleaning product 

Do you have little time and do you not have the cleaning agent for your type of floor at home? Then just use a tiny bit of all-purpose cleaner. Not too much, otherwise you will get greasy streaks on the floor. Half a cap is more than enough! All-purpose cleaner has the following advantages:

  • pH neutral: safe for all floor types.
  • Powerful cleaning: removes dirt and stains effectively.
  • Fresh scent: make your floor smell wonderful.
  • Environmentally friendly: contains no harmful chemicals.
