Can You Use Swiffer Sweeper Wet Mop on Laminate Floors?

When it comes to house cleaning we are always looking for faster and easier ways to accomplish necessary, but tedious tasks. One way to tackle these chores is by using the Swiffer cleaning systems. Swiffer makes wet mopping products that include wet Swiffer cloths for the regular Swiffer tool, and a Wet Jet System that sprays a cleaning solution onto the floor with a dry cloth to mop it up, both of which can be used on laminate floors.

Swiffer Wet Cloth

The easiest way to clean a laminate floor with Swiffer is to use the Swiffer wet cloth. This disposable cloth is soaked with a cleaning solution that will break up and lift away dirt from your laminate floor. If the cloth gets dirty you just throw it away and install a new one on the Swiffer sweeper.

Swiffer Wet Jet

The Swiffer Wet Jet system can also be used on laminate flooring, however this product seems to require many more of the disposable cleaning pads, because once they get really wet they don't pick up as well as they do when they are just damp. This system works with a bottle of Swiffer cleaning solution, which will need to be replaced whenever it runs out.

Laminate Flooring Appearance

Laminate flooring tends to show water spots or streaks after being cleaned with a Swiffer wet product. Which isn't unusual as this type of flooring shows streaks and water spots with just about any cleaning method that involves liquid. After the floor dries, use a dry Swiffer cloth to clean away streaks and spots to leave your floor shiny and clean.
