    walk over / through

    Please do not walk over / through the wet floor.

    Are the prepositions correctly used?

    Thanks a lot.

    Re: walk over / through

    You can't use through that much is for sure.

    This would mean that you would literally walk through the floor.

    You can't say over either, I've never heard that in my whole life.

    The best preposition here would be on.

    "Please do not walk on the wet floor."

    Yes, "on" would be better. But 'Please do not walk in/through the wet paint [that is on the floor]'.
