How To Clean Hardwood Floors

As busy as life gets, we know cleaning a hardwood floor takes time and is a skill in itself. Deciding on the right cleaner and knowing what kind of tools to help you clean without damaging can be quite an undertaking. But, hardwood floor care and cleaning is easy when you understand the right steps and procedures.

If you know your floors are sealed with polyurethane or wax, use a mild or pH-neutral soap. Try to stay away from acidic cleaners because they have the ability to damage wood over time. If you don’t know what your floors have been cleaned with, the best product to clean hardwood floors is a neutral, pH-balanced hardwood floor cleaner because it’s safe on all hardwood and laminate floors.

If you don’t have a neutral cleaner in your home, you can easily make one by adding one-fourth cup of liquid soap with one gallon of hot water. Once you know what kind of cleaner you’re going to use, the rest is simple!
