Tips for keeping hardwood floors clean and glowing:
• Sweep or dust mop often. Use a wool dust mop to shine.
• Vacuum as often as you vacuum carpets. Be sure to use the hard-floor attachment, not the carpet beater brush.
• Damp-mop polyurethane floors occasionally with a wrung-out mop. Buff waxed floors occasionally to renew shine. Rewax them annually with a wood cleaning/waxing compound.
• Use a white cloth moistened with acetone or nail polish remover to remover to remove oil, paint, marker, lip-stick, ink, or tar. Harden candle wax or chewing gum messes with ice and then gently scrape it away with a plastic scraper, such as a credit card.
Mop wood laminate floors with a mixture of 1 cup of vinegar in 1 gallon of warm water, or with just plain water. As with hardwood floors, wring out your mop so it is only slightly damp.
If you’re not sure whether you have a waxed or polyurethane-coated wood floor, sprinkle a few drops of water on the floor. If the water beads up, the floor is probably coated with polyurethane.
Do not use Ammonia on any surface if you recently used liquid choline bleach or a product containing any bleach.
