How to Remove Mop & Glo from Wood Flooring
Did you make the mistake of putting Mop & Glo on your floors and now it looks like this?! It’s what nightmares are made of. Scratches everywhere and no easy way to remove Mop & Glo because it is made to stay on your floors forever. Pure evil.
Mop & Glo suggests applying more of their product to fill in scratches, but seriously….who has time for that every week, especially when you have kids?!
Don’t give up just yet. There is hope!
Mop & Glo Removal Supplies
- Non-scratch scour pads
- Push broom & handle
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
- Spray bottle
- Clean water
- Clean towels
This was performed on Mohawk hardwood with a matte top coat finish. Be sure to call your flooring manufacturer before starting to get the okay.
- Hot glue a non-scratch pad to the top of your push broom and attach the handle like below.
- Open up those windows and get a fan going. You want good airflow when dealing with ammonia.
- Using pure ammonia, spray a small section of your floor and gently scrub the residue up with your fancy new non-scratch pad broom.
- Immediately mop with clean water then dry with a towel….repeat.
It’s tedious work but you’ll never make the Mop & Glo mistake ever again.
This method also works on Orange Glo.
This did not happen to me but it did take my friend Katherine 3 months of research, tears, & lots of experimenting to remove Mop & Glo from her brand new dark wood floors. She gave me permission to write about her experience in hopes it would help others.
