Dust Mopping Tricks

The purpose of dust mopping is to remove dust and light litter or soil from floors as a daily cleaning procedure. It also must be used as the first step in preparation for damp mopping or more extensive floor maintenance work.

Use a dust mop of the appropriate size for the floor space that needs to be dusted. How often have you seen a cleaner using a 12 or 15-inch dust mop in a large office-building lobby? Using the proper sized dust mop can cut your time almost in half.

There are various dust mopping treatments that can make you work easier and the floor cleaner. Apply them as instructed.

Finally, change your dust mop often. Using a dirty dust mop will be like pushing dirt with dirt.
