·   Let the mop wringer rinse the mop.  Do not twist the wet mop in the wringer this can loosen the wet mop strands.

·   Try not to leave the mop in the mop water over night, this can bread bacteria and also weaken the wet mop fibers.

·   After using your wet mop heads soak in hot water for up to 10 minutes and then rinse thoroughly.

·    Hang mop heads to dry after soaking, this prevents mold forming on the mop.

·     Try to have a mop a different mop head for different types of jobs especially if your using more than one type of floor cleaner.

·    Launder your wet mops heads on a regular basis this will prevent your mops being broken down by chemicals and should prevent mold.  Make sure to use a mop head laundry bag so that the mops don't tangle

4 Re-finishing your polished floors
 The following procedure is for reapplying coats to an already finished floor or applying finish to a new floor.  When finishing a new floor always follow the manufacturers recommendations for prepping the floor. 
 You should always consult the flooring manufacturer on the types of finishes that are suited to your floor.  When finishing any floor we recommend that you use a quality floor finish that is correctly matched to your flooring.
 Our online floor finishing procedure is are the general guidelines for finishing a floor.  These days floor finish has become the alternative to old fashioned waxes.  Floor finish can give a floor a great long lasting shine without the problems of conventional waxes.
Procedure:
o    Make sure that your floor has been prepared for finishing.  Clean the floor removing as much dirt and debris as possible.  If the floor has more than 5 coats of finish we recommend stripping the floor first.  Too many layers of finish can dull a floor.  Over time floor finish can yellow in color if you see any yellowing on the floor we also recommend that you strip the floor first. (for more information on stripping a floor click here).
o    After you have the floor has been prepared vacuum or dust mop the floor to remove any dust.  We recommend that you spray your duct mop with dust mop treatment to remove as much dust as possible.  Make sure to remove anything stuck to the floor, anything that is on the floor when you finish it will become part of the floor finish and you will have to strip your floor an begin again.
o    Make sure that the floor are you are finishing does not and will not have traffic moving through it for at least 12 - 24 hours depending on the type of finish that your are applying (see floor finish manufacturers specifications for curing and drying time).  Use warning signs to make sure the area where you are finishing is marked out so that everyone is aware of the area.
o     Finishing a floor requires the use of two mop buckets.  One bucket will be used to keep the finish mop damp and the other will be used to apply the floor finish. 
o    Fill one mop bucket 1/2 way up with water and the other mop bucket 1/4 full with floor finish.  Dip you finish mop into the water bucket and wring until the mop is damp and water does not drip from the end.  Next, dip the damp mop into the floor finish and wring until the finish mop does not drip. 
o    The best way to finish floors is to divide the floor into sections to assure that an even amount of floor finish is applied everywhere.  Begin applying the floor finish at the furthest corner from the entrance.  Apply floor finish to the baseboard area first (a block applicator can be a great tool for this job) working away from the corner.  Make sure the floor finish is going on to the floor in a thin even coat.
o    After you have applied floor finish to the baseboard move on to the open areas of the floor.  Move the mop head in a figure eight motion overlapping mopping sections by about an inch.
o    After you have applied the finish evenly to the entire area let the floor dry.  The floor should look glossy with no raised areas or drip marks.  Follow the floor finish manufacturers recommendations for drying time.  Depending on the floor finish you may wish to apply more than one coat of floor finish, if so, let the floor dry in between coats. You may also want to buff the floor in between coats so that the second coat adheres better to the first coat.
o    To maintain the new look of the floor finish you can burnish with a burnishing floor pad, again see the manufacturers recommendations for maintenance on your floor.

After 12 hours your floor should be fully cured. Floor traffic can now resume.
