should mop water be dirty when mopping wood floor?

We had bona poly applied in august right before we moved in. I've vacuumed weekly but have never mopped until today. 6 months without mopping and the mop water stayed almost clear as it came out of the tap.

Is this normal or does it mean I'm just not getting a deep clean?

There are 4 people living in here and no one removes shoes either.

I'd say that it proves you are doing a good job with the vacuum cleaner.

If the floor looks clean I wouldn't worry about it. We have parquet in the kitchen that gets dirty and needs frequent cleaning but the same parquet in the hallway to the bedrooms hardly ever gets dirty. A lot depends on the use [or abuse] the floor gets along with how often you clean it. My wife thinks I should remove my boots every time I come inside but with an old tired back that is easier said than done.

Axxel, want a dog?! Water will not be so clean. Marksr, since wifey retired and has taken over the deep house cleaning, I have been instructed to leave my work boots in the basement. She has already positioned slippers on the first step. Gee, what happened to the castle doctrine

Sounds like a clean floor to me. Someone must be doing spot wipe-ups of spilled food, etc. Also sounds like the floor finish keeps the dirt loose rather than letting it stick well - so the vacuum cleaner can get it up. It definitely ain't broke!

I get the same instructions albeit the porch [no basement] only if she's at work she can't fuss too much as I come in and out during the day. Her sister said my wife always bosses Mark around but he doesn't listen too good
