As you probably know by now, our team is a huge fan of spray mops – and we previously shared our favourite ones that we recommend you buy if you are looking to invest in one. However, they can get pricey and some people prefer to use a more traditional mop – and in those cases, we recommend a flat mop.
There are some excellent ones on the market that you can buy – and they are inexpensive, work great, and will make cleaning much easier for you. Some of them even come with a special bucket to use. Below, you can see our top picks so you can easily choose which one to get.
The 5 Best Flat Mops You Can Use For Cleaning Your Home
– Spontex Full Action System Spin Mop and Bucket
In our opinion, the Spontex Full Action System Spin Mop and Bucket is the best flat mop you can buy because the bucket has a built-in spin system that will remove as much of the water in the mop as possible before you use it – and if you are cleaning wooden floors, this is definitely a must in order to avoid damage.
The mop and bucket are priced at £34.99. We also really like that it has a cover around the top of the bucket so even if you accidentally push the bucket, it won’t splash water.
The mop head is a microfibre and it can be washed in the washing machine after each use.
In general, this mop is suitable for cleaning laminate floors, wooden floors, stone, and even vinyl floors.
– E-Cloth Mini Deep Clean Mop
This mop is perfect for reaching under furniture as well as cleaning bathrooms due to its small size. The E-Cloth Mini Deep Clean Mop is compact, easy to store, and easy to carry around, and it’s perfect for smaller homes that don’t have much storage space.
It’s suitable for all times of hard floors – laminate, wood, stone, vinyl, tile, etc. The head can be washed in the washing machine without any issues, and the mop overall performs excellently in removing impurities.
– Vileda Ultramax Complete Mop & Bucket Set
Priced at £25.99, the Vileda Ultramax Complete Mop & Bucket Set is an excellent choice if you have wooden floors because the bucket is designed to wring out the excess water from the mop. We really enjoy this product because it really lifts the impurities off of the floors – plus, it’s suitable for different hard floors such as wood, laminate, tile, etc.
The head is pivoted to its easy to control and access the hard-to-reach areas, and the head can be washed in the washing machine without any issues.
– Spontex Express System+ Compact Mop & Bucket
Another excellent mop that also comes with a bucket is the Spontex Express System+ Compact Mop & Bucket. The price is around £39.
You will love how easy to use the mop is, and how the mop head edges can flip so you can clean skirting boards with it – plus, you can clean under furniture as well.
– OXO Good Grips Spray Mop with Scrubber
Last on our list but not least is the OXO Good Grips Spray Mop with Scrubber – a great mop that is priced at £40.
What we like about this product is that the head comes with a slide-out scrubber so if you need to deal with stubborn stains, you can use this – making it perfect for pet owners that deal with messes on regular basis.
