How to clean the floor without streaks

Regular floor cleaning is necessary not only to keep your home visually clean. It's important to clean and disinfect surfaces from pathogens, fungal bacteria, dust, and dirt that can cause a number of diseases, including allergies.

However, washing often causes problems, especially with stains. OBOZREVATEL figured out how to quickly and efficiently wash away dirt and get a shiny, glowing surface.

Why streaks remain

Most often, streaks occur due to improperly selected floor cleaning products. Another common cause is too much detergent. The soap suds settle on the parquet and, when cleaned with water, simply lie on the surface in stripes.

It is also important to vacuum and dust the floor first, and only then start wet cleaning.

Streak-free floor cleaning

For the best cleaning effect, cleaning service specialists advise going over the surface with a wet brush or damp broom before wet cleaning.

It is better to wipe off large stains with a cloth separately. For high-quality cleaning, you can prepare the following solution: pour 1 liter of water into a container and add 1 tablespoon of alcohol or white vinegar. This product will ensure not only cleanliness but also disinfection.

It is important to remember to wipe the floor along the joints with the baseboards. Experts recommend starting cleaning with the cleanest areas and then moving on to the more soiled ones.

The most effective cleaning is when the mop moves in the form of an infinity sign or the English letter S. This will help prevent dirt from smearing on the floor.

Another cause of stains is excessive moisture on the mop, so wring it out thoroughly before washing and change the water as it gets dirty.
