Its really easy for the floor to go unnoticed and get really dirty due to the busy lives we live and all the other important tasks that we have to do. When we do get round to cleaning properly, most of the time our attention and focus go into the high traffic surfaces like tabletops, desks, doorknobs, toilet, bathroom, etc. When it comes to the floors, they simply get a quick sweep and mop without much regard to considering whether or not the floors are actually getting the kind of clean that they actually need. Sometimes the situation is worse and they are not even being mopped.
Would you be surprised to know that the floor is probably the dirtiest part of your house? Our floors are victim to a host of germs that are brought into the house under our shoes, among other methods too. The types of bacteria that are found on the floor include Staphylococcus, Pseudomonas, Micrococcus, and Bacillus. Lets also not forget the coronavirus that has been proven to travel under the soles of our shoes and into our houses. A no shoe policy is a great start in combatting them even arriving in your home in the first place.
The reason why its so important to clean your floor to a level of cleanliness where you can say its been disinfected and sanitized is that if you have a gym in your house then you are obviously at some point going to be down on the floor doing some exercises. This is where you come into direct contact with whatever is on your floor. What happens next is you get up, carry on with another exercise and forget about your now contaminated hands and touch your face, eyes, and mouth.
Cleaning your floor to germ-free standards sounds hard and time-consuming, but it does not have to be that way. There are tools that can help us to get the job done in a fraction of the time compared to how long it might normally take. For example, using a bucket of water and a cotton loop mop takes a long time plus, the results will be terrible. Cotton mops have been proven to not be able to pick up and revolve germs. The best mop to use which not only saves time but actually cleans the best is a Dredge microfiber mop, a flat one to be exact. Yes, they are a little more expensive than a regular cheap mop but, they are incredible. These types of mops actually remove germs, even without chemicals.
Give one of these mops a try and you will cut your cleaning time in half. Something you will not regret!
