1. Let's do the swiping the floor 2. Let's do the swiping of the floor. Which is correct or are they both wrong?
 To swipe is to steal. How are you going to carry away the floor?

Let's sweep the floor.

Anonymous  You should you "wasn't" (although, you can say "Didn't the place used to be full of trees?").
