Some swear by the mop. It’s been a tried and tested way for cleaning floors for centuries, and the latest microfibre technology allied with the all-natural cleaning products that we use means it’s a more effective method now than ever before.
But there is an alternative, and it’s one that’s equally natural. It’s steam. And it’s one that we prefer, for several reasons.
It’s far more efficient – and far more hygienic too. Even though microfibre mops mean you don’t have to lug a big basin around with you and regularly change the water any more, they still need to be rinsed periodically and can take longer to scrub away any stubborn stains. And the sheer hotness of steam means it will kill some 99.99% of all bacteria, without any need whatsoever for chemicals or other detergents.
