Tips for Hardwood Floor Maintenance

Wood floors require a bit more maintenance and cleaning than other types of flooring, so it’s important to know how to properly mop the floor. First, make sure that your wood floor is sealed by running your finger across it. If the floor smudges, it’s probably waxed rather than sealed, which means the floor shouldn’t be mopped. If you have a sealed floor, sweep it thoroughly before mopping. Then, fill a bucket with wood cleaner and the recommended amount of water.
