To mop a floor, sweep the floor and mop it with a mop dampened with a mixture of hot water and mopping solution. You need a sponge mop, a bucket, a wringer, hot water and mopping solution to complete this task.
- Sweep the floor, and prepare the mopping solution
Sweep the floor to remove loose dirt and expose the dirty spots. Mix hot water and mopping solution in a bucket.
- Mop the floor
Soak the sponge mop in the solution, and squeeze out water with a wringer on the mopping bucket. Mop the floor in straight lines in sections from the top to the bottom of the room so you don't stand on the mopped floor.
- Rinse the floor
Empty the bucket, and refill it with clean water. Repeat step two above to rinse the floor.
