How to Clean Prefinished Hardwood Floors

Cleaning prefinished hardwood floors is not much different than cleaning unfinished hardwood floors and hardwood floors that are finished on site. Although prefinished hardwood floors usually have up to ten coats of UV finish, they can still incur damage as a result of foot traffic, dropped objects and standing water. Knowing the dos and don'ts on hardwood floor care can help protect your prefinished hardwood floors from potential harm.

Prefinished hardwood floors need to be swept and mopped regularly. Dirt and debris can be very abrasive on prefinished hardwood floors and may scratch them over time. Dirt is often transported onto floors by means of shoes; therefore, you may want to consider removing your shoes before entering your house. You can also minimize the amount of dirt on your prefinished hardwood floors by placing mats in doorways.

Spills should be cleaned up immediately as they can stain and possibly warp prefinished hardwood floor planks. Overall, prefinished hardwood floors are very sensitive to water and should be dry mopped, not wet mopped. Instead, moisten the mop with water and a cleaning solution recommended by the manufacturer. Once you're finished mopping, wipe up any excess water with a clean dry cloth.

You can learn more about how to clean prefinished hardwood floors in FindAnyFloor.com's Hardwood Floor Care section.

I have prefinished hardwood floors in parts of my house. Its a pain to have to use other products just to keep its beauty in tact. I usually ask my guests to take off their shoes when they come into the house but I found that my Swiffer just wasn't doing the job. I found a new product called Bona Floor Mop. It is an awesome product that you sweep after spraying your floor with its cleaner. My floors shine and what helps me out is that they stay that way for a while! I don't have to wipe and clean my prefinished floors everyday!

Hardwood flooring is not easy to maintain its cleaning. While bamboo flooring is easy to make it clean and this type of flooring is affordable and renewable too, so that's why more and more poeple are running this type of flooring.
