Cleaning Tips Part III

The most common mistakes when mopping hardwood floors result in either long term damage to the finish and/or a dull film building up.  Here are some tips to get them done right:

  • After sweeping up debris with a broom dust mop floors with a microfiber dust mop first
  • Stick with hardwood floor cleaners that have a neutral pH.
  • If you use a concentrated hardwood floor cleaner such as Zepp at Lowe’s mix it with distilled water only. Do not use hard water
  • Spray hardwood cleaner onto floor with a pump spray not a tiny little bottle  – You don’t want to put down too much water or chemicals on hardwood but you need more than spray bottle spit. Make sure it’s lightly but evenly covered when you mop.
  • Use quality microfiber flat mops preferably commercial quality ones from Rubbermaid or Direct Mop Sales
  • Replace microfiber mop pads often and when washing them – do not mix them with other dirty rags and don’t use a fabric softener or fabric sheet when drying

After Sweeping Dust Mop

Never wet mop a floor that has millions of unseen dry dust particles that can easily be dry dust mopped up first.
