For safety it is most important to ensure the floor is not left even slightly wet after cleaning or mopping up.
There are a lot of tips and ideas which are available online.
Few Floor cleaning tips' from “eHow” are:
Dirt from the street collects on feet and gets tracked into your house dozens of times a day. The little dumps, spills, and heel marks of daily living accumulate with startling speed.
And unless your home has only one kind of floor throughout, you will have to deal with cleaning different kinds of hard-surface floors. The first step toward efficient floor cleaning is to know what your floor is made of. The cleaning method that works for one surface may ruin another.
Sawdust is used on some floors to absorb any liquids that fall rather than trying to prevent them being spilt. The sawdust is swept up and replaced each day.
It used to be common to use tea leaves to collect dirt from carpets and remove odours.
Soap or wax used sparingly cleans and beautifies surfaces. If you use too much, you will have to spend time removing the buildup.
To clean a dust mop without making a mess, slip a large paper bag over the head of the mop, secure the top, and shake so the dust falls into the bag.
Remember that either you clean the floor for yourself or get help from professional agencies, you need to look for proper floor care equipment for the perfect job.
