What Mop to Use on a Tile Floor


Tile floors come in various styles, from marble to ceramic; you can even install self-adhesive faux tiles yourself. But tiles can be difficult to maintain, especially ceramic tiles, which can collect dirt, debris, grime, and grease, requiring almost daily cleaning. With such high maintenance requirements, you should carefully choose the type of mop to buy.

Cloth is Best

  • People used to clean tile floors daily on their hands and knees, but today's demanding schedules may not allow for that. And you won't have to if you buy a microfiber cloth mops, which does the best job of cleaning tile floors. They do not scratch the tile surface like sponge mops can. They also don't leave fibers behind like disposable cloth and string mops do.

Best Mop on the Market

  • The Bona brand mop system is probably the best mop on the market for tile floor cleaning. Similar to the Swiffer system, it sprays a solution on the floor and the cloth mop wipes the floor clean. Bona mops have a microfiber cloth instead of a disposable one, so they can be laundered and reused. But it's an expensive, costing about $80.

Make Your Own

  • You can make a cheap cloth mop that you can wash in your washing machine and reuse often. Buy a sponge mop and a quarter yard of cheap microfiber cloth, cover the sponge with the cloth and tie the cloth to the mop's handle.
