Your beautiful hardwood floors are a major investment and should be treated as such. In order to keep them looking their best, it's important to clean them regularly with the proper products and techniques. In this blog post, we will discuss how to clean your hardwood floors and restore their original shine!

The first step in cleaning your hardwood floors is to sweep or vacuum them thoroughly. This will remove any dirt or debris that may be on the surface of the floor. Next, you'll need to mix a solution of water and vinegar. The vinegar will help to break down any built-up residue on the floor and will also disinfect the surface. Using a mop, apply the vinegar solution to the floor and allow it to sit for a few minutes.

Then, using a damp rag, wipe up the solution and dry the floor completely. If your floors are particularly dirty or if there is some build-up that won't come off with just vinegar and water, you can use a stronger cleaner like ammonia or mineral spirits.  Be sure to test any cleaner in a small, inconspicuous area before using it on the entire floor.

Once your clean hardwood floors, you can restore their shine by applying a coat of polyurethane or wax. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully and allow the finish to dry completely before walking on it. Now you can enjoy your beautiful hardwood floors without having to worry about dirt and dust buildup!
