Sweeping and vacuuming your floors may not be enough to clean away hard-to-reach dirt and prevent the spread of bacteria. Instead, you'll need something that can sanitize, lift dirt and grime, and clean stubborn stains. Only a rotary mop can effectively clean your floors. In this article, we will discuss:

  • How sweeping cannot sanitize your floor
  • How mopping your floor can reduce bacteria and allergens
  • How mopping helps to prevent floor scratches.

If you're interested in removing hard-to-reach dirt and grime, check out the Narwal T10, which cleans with a high-speed 180 RPM rotation motor. Even stubborn stains stand no match for the heavy-duty friction effect caused by the 10N of force that the T10 produces.

Sweeping alone cannot sanitize your floor

If your home is anything like mine, you deal with a lot of dirt and grime caused by everyday life. Whether it's preparing food or dealing with pets and kids, the surfaces in your home come in contact with a lot of germs and bacteria. Over time, bacteria and germs build up in your home, which can have a detrimental effect on your health.

If you just sweep and wipe away surface dirt, you leave behind microscopic germs which can cause illnesses, allergies, and harmful smells.

 Mopping the floor can reduce bacteria and allergens

According to an article in the Journal of Hospital Infection, wet mopping can decrease the amount of organic material, like bacteria and allergens, up to 36%. This is 36% of materials that you didn't even know existed, unseen and microscopic organisms which cause disease and illness. Using a mild detergent, you can lift dirt out of cracks and crevices, cleaning them up and removing them from her home.

In addition, rotary mops use spinning bristles to create friction and increase the amount of dirt and organic material that is pulled up. Essentially, when you use a rotary mop, it's as if you are down on your hands and knees scrubbing away to get to all those hard-to-reach places. And when you use a Narwal T10, you can set up a mop to do all the hard work for you.

Mopping helps prevent floor scratches

As mentioned above, you may not be able to just sweep away all the organic material in your home. Instead, dirt and debris can stay hidden within cracks in floors, and that may cause tiny scratches, which could lead to large dents and gouges to your floors. This is especially true if you have hardwood floors, as they are more susceptible to scratches and dents than tile and ceramic.


Sweeping and vacuuming alone cannot do the job of cleaning your floors. Instead, using a mop with mild detergents and cleaners can help to lift out organic material that causes allergies and illness. While wet mopping with a microfiber mop is a great way to clean your floors, consider investing in a rotary mop like the Narwal T10, which uses triangular mop pads that cover 30% more surface area and cleans more efficiently than handheld mops.
