"Mop-up operation" hoặc "mop-up" chỉ sự thu dọn, nhặt nhạnh (sau trận lụt, hỏa hoạn...)/ chuốt lại (các phương án). "Mop-up operation" còn có nghĩa là cuộc hành quân tảo thanh; cuộc truy quét tàn quân.

Ví dụ
A massive mop-up operation is underway after Storm Ciara battered the Borders - causing widespread disruption (gián đoạn lớn) across the region.

Residents in Western Australia’s Pilbara region are mopping up the damage from ex-tropical cyclone (xoáy thuận ngoài nhiệt đới) Damien, which could bring flash flooding to inland parts of the state.

The Nigeria Police Force Headquarters has said its operatives have arrested (bắt giữ) three more terrorists (kẻ khủng bố) belonging to the Ansaru terror group, in continuation of its mop-up operations at Kuduru Forest, in Kaduna State.

The PMF, which has played a central role (vai trò trung tâm) in operations to defeat ISIS in Iraq since 2014, and participated in almost all mop-up operations since the group’s territorial defeat in Iraq in 2017, has also been excluded (bị khai trừ) from the Heroes of Iraq operation.
