After you just got done scrubbing your floors. Example like the kitchen floor was just mopped. Do you let it air dry. Or do you go over it with a dry mop or towel to dry it. I always let it air dry. Our son tries arguing the point. Says you gotta dry the floor after your done. Or the dirt will just dry back on. I said no you don't. Even at work. When I mop the floor behind the line and my cooking areas. I just let it air dry. Our son like to prove I'm wrong all the time. It urks me really bad. So he goes and uses up most a roll of paper towels to dry the kitchen floor I mopped. All because he says you gotta dry it.
air dry all the way. I have never even heard of anyone drying it with a towel afterwards. My grandmother who is the neatest freakiest person I will ever know(washes the walls down in her house at least 4 times a year) doesnt wipe it up.
My dh will sorta agree with your son LOL. But mostly about the carpet. If the carpet gets wet with just water, it attracks dirt and causes a dirt stain when it really was just water that spilled. When he shampoos the carpet, he makes sure to get all the water up and is pretty dry, then turns on a fan.
As far as my kitchen floor, I have wood laminent, so I use a spray bottle of floor cleaner and a terry cloth mod, so it really wipes up pretty dry. I just let it finish drying on its own.

Me too, for the same reason.
But if he thinks all the dirt is still on the floor, have him look in the mop bucket. That is NOT the same clean water you started with.
