clean modern home

Many people think that the more shine their wood floors have the better, but this is not the case. To keep wood floors looking brand new regular vacuuming and mopping with a damp terry cloth mop with the proper solution is key. If your floors have a finish to them do not use an oil based cleaner. Over time that cleaner will harm your floors rather than help them keep their shine. Every thing you put on the floors needs to be removed over time because it causes a build up. If you are using a cleaner with an oil base the build up becomes harder to remove. Use a solution of water and a few drops of a mild pH balanced soap to clean the floors. You want to bring out the original shine not add a new shine that you will eventually have to strip and reseal.
