Hardwood Flooring Cleaning Tips in Wisconsin
- Sweep If your hardwood flooring accumulates any crumbs, pet hair, clumps of dirt or other large pieces of debris, sweep them up right away before they have a chance to damage your floor. You can use either a broom and dustpan or a vacuum.
- Dust While sweeping does a good job of picking up large pieces of debris, it often leaves behind smaller pieces of dirt and dust that can scratch up your floors. Dust your hardwood flooring with a microfiber towel or a dry mop to pick up the smallest pieces.
- Mop The key to successfully mopping hardwood flooring is to use as little water as possible. Mix a hardwood floor cleaner with water according to the label directions, wet your mop, and then wring it out as much as possible. Mop the floor using a small amount of water, and ventilate the area well so it can dry quickly. Fans and open windows can help with this.
- Remove Stains The best way to clean a stain on hardwood flooring depends on the type of flooring and the type of stain. Wipe a surface stain with a clean, damp cloth. For floors with soft oil finishes, steel wool may be appropriate to buff out the stain. Be careful with this method, however, as steel wool can ruin the finish of sealed hardwood flooring.
