How to clean your hardwood floors

  • Put half a pinky nails 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 practice
Sweep and vacuum once or twice a week and mop once every one or two weeks.
