Mopping vs Scrubbing Floors

Posted on: May 10, 2010


I’m posting this as an illustration of an argument I made in an earlier post.
The discussion began with a reading where the author suggested that it is demeaning to ask a housekeeper/cleaning service personnel to scrub your floors on their hands and knees instead of mopping them.
We just moved into a house that had not been cleaned in awhile (a long while). When we arrived, my husband swept and “mopped” the floor.
Later, I began to “scrub” the floor on my hands and knees.
There is a distinct difference between the two.
This is an extreme example because the home had not been cleaned in quite some time and most people don’t allow their floors to get this bad before they clean them. However, I do think it makes my point about scrubbing floors – it is not a demeaning job, it is just what needs to be done to get them really clean.
