The 10 Best Mops for Cleaning Every Type of Floor, According to Experts (2022)

The 10 Best Mops for Cleaning Every Type of Floor, According to Experts (1)rd.com, via retailers (3)

As a Home Editor who covers cleaning products, I know that whether you’re a mop traditionalist or a fan of vacuum mop combos, it’s important to have the best mop for your floor type. While some spaces may benefit from the best robot mops, larger rooms and open floor plans are more likely to need more robust mop models with additional functionality.

“Wood, engineered hardwood, and laminate floors all have seams in them, so the amount of water they can handle is limited,” explains professional cleaner and mopping expert Pam Clyde of BritLin Cleaning. That’s why you’ll need to choose the right type of mop for your floor, or look for a mop designed to handle a variety of types of flooring.

The best mop for your home also depends on how much dirt and grime you’re hoping to remove. “If the floor is excessively dirty, you’ll need to scrub a little harder and change out the mop pad more often,” Clyde says. “Microfiber pads will pick up the dirt beautifully.”

What to look for when buying the best mop

“The best mop to use on all floors is a flat mop,” says Clyde. “The technique used, however, will vary based on the type of floors you’re cleaning.” Here’s what she suggests looking for in a mop to makes floors shine.

  • A flat mop head. There seem to be a near-endless supply of mop head shapes, but the best ones offer a flat or nearly-flat surface. Steer clear of anything ball or dome-shaped. Those old-fashioned twisted rope mops are no longer the gold standard.
  • An ergonomic handle. Comfort is key. Choose a plastic or metal-finish handle over wood and bamboo. Mops are constantly coming into contact with water, and you don’t need the handle splintering, rotting, or growing mold.
  • A reasonable price. There’s no reason to pay an arm or a leg for the best mop (you’re going to need those arms for mopping, anyway). Several of the best mop models on the market are incredibly affordable and built to last.
  • Consider your floor type. If you need added disinfection or heat-powered cleaning, you’re going to want a steam-cleaning mop. These can be especially useful on tile and synthetic surfaces. Wood floors are sensitive to added moisture, so consider a microfiber surface or a robot-style vacuum mop that carefully controls liquids.

Evaluation criteria

To choose the best mop for every floor type, we looked at customer ratings, value, various functions, construction, and material. We also looked at expert recommendations and took ease of use into consideration. After all, your new favorite mop should be as trusted and reliable as the most dependable vacuum cleaners that last for years.

Best overall mop

O-Cedar ProMist Max Spray Mop

This Amazon bestseller tops our list because of its ease of use, versatility, affordable price point, and thousands of glowing customer reviews calling it a “game-changer” and “the only mop that doesn’t feel like a chore.” The O-Cedar ProMist Max Spray Mop has a super-absorbent microfiber mop head that cleans effectively with water alone, although many reviewers say they love using it with their favorite cleaning products. If you do use it with additional cleaning agents, the brand suggests adding only two teaspoons of cleaning solution to the entire water bottle—making this mop a thrifty and eco-friendly choice.

The microfiber mop pads work hard at cleaning both wet and dry floors. The innovative one-touch release button allows you to remove the included spray bottle in a jiffy. The handle grip is also one of the best on the market, ensuring easy maneuverability with limited risk of slipping or uncomfortable mopping angles when you’re working on getting into every kitchen floor nook and cranny.

Pros:

  • No batteries required
  • Microfiber pads can be machined washed up to 100 times
  • Cleans with just water or with additional cleaning fluid
  • Affordable price point

Cons:

  • Reattaching the microfiber pads can be tricky

Best mop and bucket set

O-Cedar Spin Mop with Bucket

For a mop-and-bucket combo, the O-Cedar Spin Mop and bucket set is the clear winner. With well over 100,000 Amazon reviews and a nearly-perfect 4.5 star rating, reviewers say it’s “worth every penny.” It’s a wonder for those with bad backs because it eliminates the need to bend down every time you wring your mop out. The bucket comes with a built-in wringing pedal that needs only a quick tap or two with your foot to spin excess water out. Here’s our full review of the O-Cedar Spin Mop.

The plastic handle on this mop is also a winner, and the included microfiber mop heads are designed to easily slide below baseboards, into corners, and into all sorts of other complicated areas. The best part? The microfiber heads are machine-washable, which means you’ll use them for months at a time on all sorts of flooring before they need to be replaced. You can buy the mop-and-bucket at big box stores, but the best deal is from Amazon with four included mop head refills.

Pros:

  • Easy foot pedal wringing
  • Affordable
  • Machine-washable microfiber pads
  • Spinning mop head is easy to maneuver into corners

Best spray mop

Mexerris Microfiber Spray Mop

The Mexerris spray mop is one of the best mops for ceramic tile, marble, and other hard-surface floors that require delicate cleaning that also dissolves grime and sticky messes. The microfiber mop pads can be used for dust mopping in a pinch, and the 360-degree spin function helps reach tight and awkward spots. You can fill the generously sized bottle with warm water or the cleaning solution of your choice to remove stinky pet urine. Reviewers note that adding a small amount of Angry Orange Pet Odor Eliminator with water to the refillable container is an “almost magic” solution for stuck-on and crusty spills when paired with the scrubber attachment (included).

This mop is also one of the best-reviewed cleaning products on Amazon with an impressive 6,900 ratings and a nearly-perfect 4.5-stars average.

Pros:

  • Affordable price point
  • 410 ml refillable bottle
  • Easy spray function
  • Adjustable plastic handle

Cons:

  • Microfiber pads are generously sized, but not as absorbent as other brands, making it better for smaller spaces or one room at a time
  • Replacement parts are hard to find (though most reviewers note that their mops work perfectly for a long time)

Best dust mop

Great Value Microfiber Flip Dust Mop

We chose this easy-to-use dust mop for its extremely affordable price point and the just-like-the-bigger-name-brands’ construction. The Great Value microfiber flip dust mop is definitely one of the product exclusives you should be buying at Walmart. We like the cushioned grip handle that adds comfort, and the way the microfiber mop head fingers are ideal for dry dusting floors or regular wet mopping in a pinch. It’s ideal for delicate hardwood floors and tile surfaces because it picks up both fine particles and larger debris. It’s machine-washable so you can use (and re-use) it for months. It also makes cleaning hard-to-reach fan blades a cinch. Reviewers suggest replacing the mop head every six to 12 months, depending on how often you use it.

Pros:

  • Affordable Walmart find under $20
  • Can be used with cleaning fluid for wet mopping
  • Ergonomic handle with grips
  • Machine-washable microfiber mop head
  • Stores flat and fits in narrow spaces

Cons:

  • Best suited for dry dust mopping; you’ll need another mop for wet mopping

Best high-tech mop

Lunaglow Nano 3 in 1 Wet & Dry Vacuum

Technically the Lunaglow Nano 3 in 1describes itself as a vacuum, but it’s really the best kind of vacuum-mop combo unit, and it makes cleaning your floors easier than ever.

The cordless model dusts, mops, vacuums, and gently scrubs to cut cleaning time in half. It leaves a squeaky-clean finish on high-traffic areas like front hallways and kitchens.

It quickly eliminates caked-on messes and dirt with the cleaning power of hot steam and is easily maneuvered around tight spaces, furniture, cabinets, and more.

Reviewers are enthusiastic about this model’s hot steam killing up to 99 percent of germs using just water and the included microfiber pad. The system is an animal, child, and people-safe alternative to harsh cleaning chemicals. It’s also ready to use in just 30 seconds, an impressive feat that even some of the more expensive models can’t manage. If you want a vacuum-mop combo, we reviewed the Tineco iFloor 3.

Pros:

  • Heat steams to eliminate up to 99 percent of germs without added chemicals

Seriously, this thing is so cool that we’re naming it the best robot mop and one of the best robot vacuums. It offers Wi-Fi connection, Alexa voice control, selective room cleaning (to stay off your carpeted areas, for example), no-go zones, and so much more.

(Video) ✅ Mop: Best Mops for your Floor (Buying Guide)

The Roborock S6 is definitely the mop for people who simply don’t have time to mop. You can easily control it from your phone just about anywhere in the world with the accompanying Roborock app. While it’s more expensive than other mop models on the market, it’s certainly worth it for busy households.

Best scrubbing mop

Libman Nitty Gritty Roller Mop

Libman has been a trusted name in cleaning products since the 1800s, and this relatively new Nitty Gritty Roller Mop fits right in with the brand’s heritage and reputation for exceptionally easy-to-use items. The sponge-based mop offers a generous amount of surface area for cleaning spills and hard surfaces such as tile, and can be flipped to expose harder bristles that fight grout gunk and caked-on messes.

This affordable model works wonders on dirty basement and garage floors, ceramic tiles in the bathroom, and other not-so-delicate areas. We’d avoid using the scrubbing side on delicate surfaces such as marble or wood, though.

Pros:

  • Affordable at under $15
  • Can be used for regular mopping or aggressive scrubbing
  • Really gets into grout

Cons:

  • Non-flat-head design makes it tricky to get into corners and under baseboards
  • Mop head isn’t machine-washable
