How to Properly Clean Hardwood Floors

Good care and maintenance of a hardwood floor enhances its life and appearance. Solid hardwood floors can be easily cleaned, and a daily cleaning routine is a must in order to protect the floors from grit and dirt that are most damaging problems. They create scratches, dents and dulling in the smooth finish layer of the flooring. Floor mats help in protecting the smooth layer of flooring by trapping dirt. Do not allow water to collect on the floor, as it can warp. Neutral pH cleansers developed for wood floors should be used for best results. Do not drag furniture over these floors. Felt contacts for legs are a must to avoid scratches on the flooring. A vacuum with a brush attachment is the right choice for cleaning the floor. Exposing the floor to direct sun could cause discoloring. Use drapes, curtains, blinds to block direct sun light. Floors should be swept regularly, and dust mops are recommended for dust.

Before deciding on a method of cleaning or maintaining the hardwood floors, check the flooring condition. Is the finish chipped, dull, gouged or scraped? Use of water is not recommended if the finish is already damaged as water could penetrate causing further damage to the wood. If the finish is in good condition, a damp mop can be used to wash the floor. A half dry mop is enough to clean. If cleaning in this way does not bring desired results, a maintenance coat may be required. Wax the hardwood floor. Rubbing with No. 2 steel wool removes water stains from waxed finishes. First, soak the steel wool in water. Soap helps in removing cigarette burns.

While cleaning polyurethane-finished hardwood floors, first remove furniture and rugs from the room. Use vacuum or broom to clean the floor. Then mop with a half dry mop. First , use soapy water, and then use fresh water for the mop. Rub the floor dry with a clean towel. Water should be used carefully on floors and should not be allowed to seep into joints.

While cleaning oiled hardwood floors, remove debris and dirt using vacuum or broom. Clean the floor with rags moistened in cleansing solution prepared for the purpose. Wipe the floor with wet rag and then rub it with dry rag.

Hardwood floors need regular and careful cleaning with prescribed products to enhance their life and beauty.
