In this video, cleaning expert, Melissa Maker, discusses different types of hardwood flooring and share my favorite method for cleaning hardwood floors with all of y’all.

I also demonstrate mopping techniques for effective floor mopping. Cleaning hardwood floors is really important if you want them to last you a lifetime and look great! Thanks for watching!

Richard asked: How do I clean and maintain my hardwood floors?

There are many different types of hardwood floors:
1) Polyurethane coating makes the floors look clean and shiny
2) Hardwood finished wood has a waxy or oily coating which repels water or liquid
3) Unfinished hardwood CANNOT be mopped since it will damage the floors

To test if you can mop your floors, drop a few drops of water in a discreet area and if it beads, you have a floor coating.

Answer:

What you need-
1) Hardwood floors
2) Vinegar
3) Dishwashing liquid
4) Wringer bucket
5) Microfiber twist mop
6) Microfiber cloth
7) Rubbing alcohol
8) Warm water

Put half a pinky nail’s worth of dishwashing liquid into a wringer bucket. Dishwashing liquid is a neutral cleaner and will help to remove dirt well without leaving a residue. Add a cap full of vinegar and fill with hot water. Vinegar is a mild disinfectant and will help to cut grease without leaving streaks. Soak the mop head in the bucket for a few minutes to soften. The mop has to be almost dry before mopping hardwood floor. When you mop, clean in an S-shaped pattern. This ensures you get all areas of the floor cleaned. Keep your bucket around you and try not to step into areas you’ve already cleaned. To be extra diligent, you can take a microfiber cloth and do a quick wipe down so no water is left behind.

Best practices are to sweep and vacuum once or twice a week and mop once every one or two weeks.
