A floor squeegee is a fantastic cleaning tool that can make your home's floors sparkle like new. In addition to being highly effective cleaning instruments, floor squeegees are very simple to use.

Step 1 - Clean Your Floor

Before proceeding to use your floor squeegee, you'll need to give your floor a thorough cleaning. To do this, apply either a commercial floor cleaning solution or a traditional soap and water mixture to the floor you wish to clean. Once the solution has been applied, use a sponge, washcloth, paper towel or mop to go over the entire floor and lay waste to any dirt deposits. Next, use a mop to apply water to the freshly cleaned surface in order to rinse off your cleaning solution.

Step 2 - Use Your Floor Squeegee

Having cleaned your floor, you will now need to run your squeegee across the wet surface. When performing this step, take care to run the squeegee across the floor in a top-to-bottom fashion and make sure to use broad, even strokes and overlap the previous row with each stroke. Once you have gone over the entire surface, the squeegee will have removed any lingering bits of filth and given your floor a nice, streak-free shine. Thoroughly rinse the squeegee in warm water before its next use.
