Use a pH neutral cleaner to clean your hardwood floors, including options such as the Swiffer Sweeper and the Bruce Wood Floor Care Kit. The Bona Ultimate Hardwood Floor Care System is another option that can safely clean hardwood floors.
Wood wash mixtures are biodegradable, and they are safe to use on all types of wood floor finishes. The concentrated formula creates a streakless floor, though individuals should avoid tap water to avoid hard water streaks. Higher pH cleaners may clean dirt and grime more efficiently, but they should be avoided because they may damage the overall luster of the floor's surface.
