I just moved into a new house and it's big and has all hardwood floors. What is the best way to clean them? Obviously they need to be swept/vacuumed often, but I can't decide what sort of mop is best to clean them...any suggestions?Answer Question
I use a dust mop for every day sweeping. To clean them, you can use 1 part vinegar to 4 parts water or Orange Glow wood floor cleaner. I know that the swiffer wood floor cleaner leaves huge streaks on my floors, even when I mop with the wood grain. It just looks like i dumped water on it. The orange Glow, if you use too much, will streak also. But the Swiffer seems to streak no matter what. Pledge used to make a wood floor cleaner, which I loved. I can't find it in my grocery store now, I don't know if they stopped making it or stopped carrying it...but it never left streaks.
