Cleaning Custom Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors are perfect for the home because they are luxurious, more sanitary than carpeting, and they can be fairly easy to clean with the proper knowledge. Cleaning your floors on a daily basis is the ideal way to maintain your custom hardwood floors looking beautiful and long-lasting.

Protect your floors from water and dirt:

First things first, when cleaning your floors, keep in mind that the wood has a finish on it. Knowing What Type of Finish You Have is the most important part of cleaning your floors. As finishes can vary from polyurethane (water-based and oiled), oil, or wax, they all require their own special cleaning techniques and products.

Find out from your flooring manufacturer what kind of finish you have and what cleaning products they recommend for it. Some flooring manufacturers have their own line of cleaning products or can recommend some that are safe to use. For example, here at MIR Hardwood Design we recommend our clients to use Bona Pro Series Hardwood Floor Cleaner which is a cleaning spray for weekly maintenance of polyurethane finished floors. On the other hand, we found that a commonly used floor mop, such as theBona Pro Series Hardwood Floor Mop,” leaves residue on the floors that can cause problems later.

Take a look at our Daily Cleaning Tips for specific information on cleaning.
