Wouldn’t you love to mop like a pro? We asked America’s No. 1 cleaning expert, Don Aslett, for help. With a company that cleans 400 million square feet a night, he’s got mopping down to a science.
Start with the right mop
When Aslett first went into business, his favorite tools for mopping were a string mop and a bucket. For years, that’s how Aslett and his workers cleaned floors. In fact, if it weren’t for the discovery of one item, he’d probably still be using a string mop today.
Since the invention of microfiber, with its thousand-plus fibers per square inch, Aslett has changed his style. He now uses a mop that has a reusable microfiber pad instead of strings.
“I haven’t found anything that cleans better than a microfiber pad mop,” Aslett told TODAY Home. “It picks up dirt fast and easily and does the job without bulky buckets.”
