Swiffers are a lot better than mops as Swiffers collect the dust instead of pushing them aside. They help to collect dust, dirt, and stain. They are easily washable too. It is best to use a Swiffer in a home environment.

On Pipes and Fixtures, there might be mold which has to be cleaned.

Pets roam around everywhere, not just in the home but also outside. They jump on grass, mud, road, and have fun. It is very much essential to bathe the pet frequently so that they are healthy and also the dust from them do not spread elsewhere in the house.
