Best way to clean non-carpet floors?

10 years ago

What's the best way to clean non-carpet floors like tile and hardwoods?

I'm thinking about getting a vacuum canister, even though I've grown up using upright vacuums so I'm not really familiar with how well a canister performs.

From what I understand, it seems you should get a upright vacuum if you have mostly carpet in your home and you should get a canister vacuum if you also need to bare floors as well as carpet.

But, if I got a canister, would I really use it to clean my tile floors and hardwood flooring or bamboo? Would a canister really clean those floors that well?

It seems like there would be better ways than a canister for cleaning the floors, like mopping or something.
