How do I properly clean my hardwood floors?

  • When you employ a dust mop, don’t use a household dust treatment on the mop because this will dull the finish of the floors.
  • If your floors appear to have a waxy build-up, use mineral spirits to clean the affected area. Once done, clean the floors in the above manner.
  • Never use harsh harsh abrasives, steel wool or steam cleaners to clean hardwood floors.
