It can be disappointing to slave over your vinyl, tile or laminate flooring using a damp mop and the right cleaner only to get them appear tidy but feel sticky when you finish. Really clean floors have a just-washed shine and texture smooth under bare feet. You may be making more than just one unintentional mistake that leaves your flooring tacky after you wash it.
If you’re just freshening relatively clean flooring, you might be able to clean them once and be done so long as you begin with a clean mop. Unless you mop extremely dirty floors a second and even a moment, however, odds are they aren’t as tidy as they might appear. The deposits left behind by detergent can act as adhesive, binding with fine dirt or dust particles set. Moreover, the rinsing procedure can be just as important.
You do not rinse shampoo from your hair using more shampoo, or soap in the hands using more soap, and thus don’t hope to achieve well-rinsed flooring using soapy, dirty wash water. After washing your flooring, dump the water, then rinse out your mop, and clean it again with clean water. The outcome ought to be virtually dirt-free, tack-free flooring; repeat the drying procedure, if any stickiness remains.
