If you have questions about how to clean your hardwood floors, the best thing to do is to start by determining what type of wood your floor is. Depending on the type of wood that you floor is made of, you may need to use different cleaning strategies than what you are typically used to. If your floor is surface sealed, you are in luck. A floor that is surface sealed is the easiest to clean because it has a layer of protection which means that you can basically clean the floor with anything. Feel free to sweep, mop and vacuum these floors without having to worry about scraping it or wearing at the flooring in any way. If you are wondering how you can clean your floors if they are not surface sealed, do not fret. There are a number of cleaning techniques that you can use for a wide variety of hardwood floors.

If your hardwood floor has a penetrating seal or is oil treated, you may feel like you are out of luck when it comes to your cleaning choices. Penetrating seals and oil treatments protect your floor but they may only be cleaned with liquid or paste wax. Your local cleaning supply store should be able to provide you with a variety of these products to clean your floor with. If you are unsure what type of product to buy, don’t be afraid to ask the store attendees for help. Don’t take chances when it comes to your floor! Also remember that no matter what type of hardwood floor you are attempting to clean, don’t ever use a product that doesn’t contain natural ingredients. Cleaning with floor with chemicals and other harsh cleaning products can damage your floor as well as endanger the health of your pets and your children. Your pets and children are typically low to the ground, so it is important that you keep them safe by using only the most gentle and natural ingredients possible.

Other products to avoid include oil and furniture sprays. These products will leave a residue and you will end up having to clean them off of your hardwood floor in order and essentially double the cleaning work cthat you create for yourself. If you are unsure what type of flooring you have, drag your finger across the floor. If it leaves a smudge it’s got an oil treatment or penetrating treatment, if it doesn’t it is surface sealed and can be cleaned with a wider range of products. If you want to get a great clean going on your flooring, try using the mopping technique. This technique is when you dip a mop into the chosen cleaning solution, and then clean in a circular motion until your floor is sparkling clean.
