When it comes to cleaning laminate floors, it's important to know a few things. First, water is not your friend. The best mops for laminate will be dry or cloth mops that don't add any extra water to your floor while cleaning. That being said, some mops can and do use water safely, as they rely on limited amounts to get the job done. What you choose is largely based on personal preference.
As you search for the ideal mop for laminate floors, you'll want to consider the types of mops out there — spin, hand-held, dusting, etc. — and, of course, find one that suits your specific needs, from budget to mobility to cleaning solution preferences. That last one might sound weird, but some mops actually require the use of some sort of solution.
Seriously, whether you have a unique space to clean or are keen on a specific kind of mop head (antimicrobial microfiber, maybe?), the perfect mop for you exists. Here, explore my top picks, based on a combination of cost, ease-of-use, and efficiency.
