I am in the middle of mopping floors and my back hurts. I watch a little TV then when the commercials come on I continue to mop. I heard that if you mop back and forth instead of side to side it is easier on your back.

I tried both ways and my back hurts less when you mop back and forth. But, old habits never die, I still forget and mop side to side. Do you have a certain way to mop?

I also noticed a few women on my street have house cleaners, I can't afford one but if I could I am not sure I would want someone to clean my home. I did have a house cleaner years ago because I hurt my back and was not able to really move for 3 weeks. When I was ok again, I started to clean my own home again, I don't think anyone can clean your house as well as you can.
