Weekly maintenance like mopping hardwood floors is a must because a daily dusting is not enough to keep your floors looking at its best. Mops and vacuums are perfect in order to get dirt out of harder areas like corners and the gaps among each piece of hardwood. But using mops and vacuums need extra care when you clean the floors with no need to cause damage.
If you have a vacuum with a beater bar, ensure the bar doesn’t hit the floor. Moreover, the vacuum’s wheels can damage it. If you’re using a mop, keep in mind that water and wood is a bad combination. Avoid over-wetting when you are mopping hardwood floors. Combine a mop with microfiber pad that is machine-washable for cleaning and dusting.
Microfiber is harmless for the surfaces of all finished wood. It will not scrape the hardwood floors if you use it properly. They are easy to use and lightweight. There are also plenty of liquid cleaners on the market specifically for wooden floor. The majority of hardwood flooring manufacturers has particular recommendations on what kind of products you need to use. Some of them have their own brand of cleaners that are best for mopping hardwood floors.
