How Often to Mop

Casa Quickie: Map Out Your Mopping

My cleaning routine generally revolves around what needs to be cleaned rather than setting a schedule for myself. But there is one cleaning task where I find a timetable to be helpful: mopping the floors. Since floor scuffs and marks can be easily overlooked, it's best to get into a habit of cleaning them before they get out of hand.

High-traffic rooms like kitchens and bathrooms, I've found, should be mopped once a week to keep them in fine form. Meanwhile, less frequently visited areas such as dining rooms, guest rooms, and sitting rooms can be mopped monthly and dusted and vacuumed once a week. For spills in the kitchen, keep paper towels and a spray bottle of all-purpose cleaner or a soap solution on hand for a quick fix.
