Before dust mopping the floor I changed to a clean dust mop and used a clean wet mop head to mop the floor. Still, I get streaks after the floor dries. What could be my problem?
Streaks appearing on a floor after mopping are a visible residue. When the water from the mopping solution evaporates, the detergent and loosened soils, if not fully picked up by the mopping, remains and is visible.
To keep this from happening, use only the proper dilution of mopping detergent. Avoid foam and suds that are hard to pick up. A new mop should be soaked in solution for a while before use to increase its absorbency.
