Why is my floor still sticky after I have mopped it?

AdminMay 31, 2021

What’s the point of wiping a floor clean if it feels sticky? The entire effort of cleaning the floor goes in vain if the end-result is a shabby-looking, sticky floor.

The three key reasons that lead to a sticky floor even after cleaning are,

  • Something really sticky might have been spilled on the floor before mopping
  • The floor cleaner not perfectly suited for the type of floor surface
  • Dirty water

Also, not to dampen your spirit, but to guide you through, your cleaning procedure too might be the reason of a sticky floor. In an Indian household, it is always smart to first use a broom to clean the floor and then proceed with mopping. This ensures that there’s no unwanted product lying on the floor that might spread with water while mopping. Mopping without brooming makes floor sticky, because the dirt just spreads leaving the floor dirtier than before.

Another reason of a sticky floor even after mopping is too much or too little floor cleaner solution. Too much solution will leave the floor sticky, and too little solution might not be enough to wipe off the grime from the floor. Always, use the right amount of floor cleaner, as is directed on the label.

Dirty water can also hinder the pleasure of seeing a sparkling-shiny floor after mopping. Change water after mopping an area or a room. Using the same water to mop a big area/ multiple rooms together makes the water dirtier thus not being effective enough in cleaning the rest of the area, and leaving the undesired sticky feel on the floor.

After mopping, also ensure that the floor doesn’t remain wet for a long time. Therefore, one must care to use a floor cleaner that dries up quickly after mopping. This will also make floors shine better.
