Swiffer daily and you won't have problems. Like the pp said, getting that grit up is important. I use mine with a microfiber cloth. I tried the old fashioned dust mops and newer can be better in this case. When I need to damp mop, I just wring out the microfiber very well and use that. I haven't needed anything else and we've had our floor for two years. And we are a shoe on house with four kids.
