What’s the Best Mop for Laminate Floors?

The best mop for laminate floors is one that uses microfiber mop pads. Microfiber not only absorbs dirt and grime, but also removes up to 99 percent of germs using just water. And microfiber mop pads are machine washable.

We’ve chosen microfiber standouts in five categories that will safely and effectively clean your laminate floors. The right mop for you is a matter of personal preference — these are all safe bets.

Pro Tip: Purchase extra mop pads so you have a clean one handy for each room, or multiples for large rooms.

Best Flat Mop

The Oshang Flat Mop and Bucket Set is ideal for daily mopping and easy to use. Thanks to its self-cleaning feature, dirt stays in the bucket, not on the mophead. The 13-inch flat head swivels 360 degrees so you can clean baseboards and squeeze into tight spaces. The bucket, even filled with water, is lightweight and wheels easily across the floor. When you’re done, just pull the plug at the base to dump out the dirty water.

Best Spin Mop

Spin mops require less effort than flat mops and are great for smaller floors, or floors with lots of edges. With its pivoting triangular mophead, the O-Cedar Easywring Spin Mop & Bucket System outperforms larger round or rectangular shaped microfiber mopheads. And you can wring out the mop without getting your hands wet. Just step on the pedal to activate the wringer. Bonus: It doubles as a dust mop, too!

Best Strip Mop

Better than a string mop, strip mops use absorbent strips of cloth. Ideal for cleaning laminate floors with light messes, our favorite is the Libman Wonder Mop.

Made in the USA, this lightweight mop features microfiber cloth strips and easy wringing. Just wet the mop in a bucket or sink of water, then twist the built-in wringer to leave the perfect amount of moisture on the mop. Eliminating the need for a bucket makes it perfect for homes with limited storage space.

Best Spray Mop

If you like the convenience of a spray mop, take a look at the O-Cedar ProMist Max Spray Mop. All you really need is water for a deep-down clean, but you can add two teaspoons of your favorite cleaning solution to the refillable bottle if you wish.

No batteries required — just squeeze the trigger to release the spray. We also love that the microfiber mophead flips, so you can keep cleaning without changing the pad.

Best Wet/Dry Stick Mop

With its 360-degree rotating mophead and an adjustable height handle, this microfiber floor mop is the perfect two-in-one tool for dry and damp mopping. It easily removes dust and pet fur from dry floors, and works great damp to clean up other messes. You don’t have to throw the mop heads away when you’re done either; just toss them in the washing machine.
