Finding the perfect mop for your vinyl plank floors can be very time-consuming if you don’t know how to do the process in the most efficient way. Let me show you 5 simple steps to find the best mop for Vinyl plank floors that is not only easy to do but also gives you the best result. Let’s get started!


Step 1: Determine your vinyl plank floor type


Before making a list of potential mops for vinyl floors, you need to determine what kind of vinyl plank floor you are having. This is the first element that will affect your choices since each vinyl plank floor type will have different maintenance requirements. Although the difference is not significant, it can create a long-term effect if you select the best mop for each type.


Did you know that there are two types of vinyl floors? One is the regular vinyl plank floor that doesn’t require special maintenance. With this vinyl flooring type, you can choose almost any mop type because it is super resilient. However, it would be best to select a mop with soft cleaning pads that won’t scratch the beautiful surface when you try scrubbing out tough stains.


The other vinyl floor type is the luxury one. This vinyl plank floor type is more delicate since it is made with more natural elements compared to the regular one. So the best mop for Vinyl plank floors like this one is a mop that can absorb excess water well. And we can’t forget to pick a mop that is soft enough to not leave damage on the surface while scrubbing just like the regular one.


Check your vinyl floor type first to know briefly what you need to look for, then we will move on to the next step: making a list of potential vinyl floor mops.


Step 2: Create a mops list base on your budget


If you simply make a list of mops for vinyl floors with no boundary beside the requirements of your vinyl floor type, that list could go endless. There are so many vinyl floor mops on the market right now which makes it hard for you to choose one in the first place, and that is why you are looking for this tutorial. So let’s learn the right way to do this.


To narrow down your choices, you have to set a budget range and stick to it. Don’t be blind by the fancy features that the manufacturers are advertising to you and think that is what makes the best floor mop for Vinyl. Since vinyl plank floors are basically easy to preserve, a suitable mop that can do exactly what you need is good enough.


Finding all the mops within your budget range will surely give you enough options to research later on, considering how many vinyl floor mop models that are on the market right now. Don’t forget to eliminate those mops that are not capable of delivering suitable cleaning requirements for your vinyl floor type.

Once you have the list, I will show you how to select the best mop for Vinyl floors for your condition.




Step 3: Investigate your cleaning challenges


Each house has a different layout based on the architecture design and interior design, and that affects the vinyl floors a lot. What we want is a mop that can help us clean our vinyl plank floor quickly and efficiently. But that doesn’t mean a big mop head is always better for the job.


Investigate your vinyl plank floor and list down the cleaning challenges you find. You should also pay attention to your cleaning troubles. Here are some common issues for you if you don’t know where to start:


  • Your vinyl plank floor is large with minimum corners and furniture -> find mops with wide heads.
  • Your vinyl plank floor is large but has a lot of furniture -> find mops for vinyl plank floors with swivel steering.
  • Your vinyl plank floor has many obstacles and corners -> find mops that have special head shapes that can sneak into tight areas.
  • Your vinyl plank floor has areas that are out of your reach -> find mops that have extendable handles.
  • Your vinyl plank floor usually has to suffer from spills -> find mops that have excellent absorption pads.
  • There are pets in your home ->  the best mop for Vinyl floors in this case is one that can deal with pet hair.
  • You can’t carry heavy objects for a long time -> focus on lightweight models, especially spray mops.
  • If you want to clean the vinyl floors efficiently with only one tool -> focus on the wet/dry mops and powered mops.


Creating a checkbox list of all the cleaning requirements based on your condition. You should also consider which aspect is more important and put it on the top of the list. This will help you sort out which mop has more important features and bring you closer to the best mop for Vinyl floors.

Step 4: Start filtering the list


When you have two lists ready, you can start sorting out which mop is more suitable for you (a.k.a which one checks out more boxes on the second list). Do this process like a competition or a league, where the least qualified mops for vinyl floors get eliminated one by one until you have 2 to 3 options left.


To make this process easier for you, here are some tips to filter the mops more efficiently:


  • Priority mops that have more ticks on the “essential qualities”.
  • If there are two mops with similar characters, go for the one with a longer warranty time.
  • Focus on those mops that are more convenient in maintenance: reusable pads, the pads can be used in a washing machine, washable components…
  • A mop with more attachments always helps you clean the vinyl plank floors better.
  • Go for mops that are not complicated to operate.


Just follow these guidelines and you will end up with 2 to 3 candidates that can be the best mop for Vinyl floors.


Step 5: The final test


Once you have your picks ready, it’s time for the final test. In this step, we will see if the mops for vinyl floors that you selected really deliver what they promise. And to do that, you have to scroll through the customer review section of each mop to gather information.


There is no doubt that after all the comparison and filtering, the candidate you have is the most suitable mop for your vinyl plank floors. But we should check to see if there is any unexpected issue that can happen when the mop is in use. And there is nowhere better to find out about this than the customer reviews. See what people who have purchased the mop before have to say about it, then you will get a better idea of what it would be like in real life.


While reading the reviews, don’t just stick to positive ones with 4 - 5 stars. Of course, we want to see people’s real experience of the mop. But we should also learn what happened to those people that made them leave negative reviews when using the same mop. Of course, there is no 100 percent quality product, and it is normal to have some rare cases where the mop can’t fulfill its job. But beware of those situations firsthand can save you from troubles later on.


Remember to check all the good and bad reviews of the mop you choose. Notice that feedback with real pictures is more reliable. If everything looks good, you can now purchase the best mop for Vinyl floors of your choice and enjoy the benefit it brings to your flooring type.




One final tips


Always read the return and refund policy carefully. I know nobody wants to fall into a situation where they have to return the new mop when they just use it a few times. But there is no guarantee that nothing wrong will happen after all the research you’ve been through. In this scenario, it would be best if you still have everything you need for an exchange and return to go smoothly.


This is where the  2nd and 3rd choices come in handy if your number 1 vinyl floor mop failed to serve you. You will have another best mop for Vinyl floors right away if something happens to the previous choice. And what are the odds that all three options are not working out? That would be really rare.




If you follow this 5 simple steps tutorial, you will have no trouble finding the best mop for Vinyl floors despite how many models there are on the market. These guidelines will save you a lot of time and effort compared to wandering through the forest of mops for vinyl floors reviews online. So try this tutorial out and find yourself the best mops that will make your vinyl plank floor last with time!

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
