Editor's Notes

January 15, 2019:

Since too much water can damage hardwood floors, I made sure to chose models don't leave excess wetness behind them. There are several solutions to this, including spin mops that have a special bucket for removing excess water, spray mops that use a small amount of cleaning solution, and microfiber mops with highly-absorbent pads. The one exception on the list is the steam mop, which should only be used on sealed hardwood floors, as it can warp un-sealed wood. But as long as the floors are properly sealed, steam is a chemical-free option that many people find extremely helpful for tackling tough stains.
