Best Way to deep clean your wood flooring.
Walking on wooden floors with shoes on will deposits anything that you may have on your shoes, may it be sand and dirt or worse. These particles are abrasive and will damage the protective finishes on your floor over time.
Always vacuum or dust mop your floor on a regular basis to stop the sand or dirt building up on your floor. Individual dust mops or micro fibre pads are available.
There are a lot of myths on the internet that the best solution for cleaning the floor is vinegar and water. Vinegar is acidic and over time this will damage the protective finish on your floor.
Most manufacturers of protective oils and lacquers have developed their own cleaning products and wood maintenance products which complement their wood finishing products.
Ideally, when you purchase your wood floor, make a note of the finishing oil or lacquer that has been used on the floor. If in doubt, ask the retailer.
