Floor Sanding Mitcham

The Best Ways to Clean Hardwood Floors



-Prep your floor for cleaning by sweeping or dust-mopping to get rid of large particles of dirt and debris.
-Use a pH neutral cleaner that will be gentle on your hardwood floors.
-Use a fine spray mist to clean your floor in sections. Avoid putting too much liquid on your floors.
-Use a microfiber mop to clean. Traditional mops can work, but they can leave excess water on your floors.
-Skip using white vinegar and water to clean your floors. Using a specially formulated hardwood floor care cleaner is a smart way to maintain the beauty and look of your floors.

Wood structure is like a bundle of drinking straws. Under a microscope the end grain of wood you can see the many tubes and vessels that are bound together to form the wood structure. These ‘drinking straws’ were used to transport water and nutrients up and down the tree when it was growing. We know that water can enter the end grain of wood 1000 times quicker than water entering the side (tangential or radial) face as the water is drawn up the ‘straws’ by capillary action.
