Hardwood Floor Care

Cleaning Your Hardwood Floors

Cleaning your Kansas City hardwood floors is very simple. For over 30 years we have recommended Windex window cleaner without amonia or Bona wood floor cleaner or distilled water. These products do a great job. And we sell the Bona cleaning kits at our store. Do not use steam cleaners on your wood floors as it may cup the flooring. When cleaning we suggest dampening the mop like a towel dried hair and lightly mist your wood floors with the cleaner and clean away.

Sweep wood floors often or when needed. Never use a vacuum with a beater bar on your wood floors, use a soft brush attachment to minimize any scratching. Remember that dust and dirt are enemies to your wood floors. Using any other cleaners, regardless of what you may read or hear is NOT recommended on our flooring materials as it may shorten the longevity and beauty of your investment.

Floor Care Tip

No matter where you live whether it’s Overland Park, Shawnee, Lenexa, Olathe or anywhere in the K.C. Metro area we all struggle with dust in our homes.

When cleaning your hardwood floors, we recommend using Bona X or Windex window cleaner without ammonia. A flat terry cloth changeable mop is your best bet. We suggest wetting the terry cloth mop with the Bona X or Windex to moist state, much like towel dried hair. Lightly mist your hardwood floors, straight out of the bottle either cleaner, so that your mop will glide easily across the floor. If you are leaving streaks you are using to much cleaner. Your floor should end up dustless and clean as a whistle. To check to see if you are getting your floor clean, spray a little cleaner on the floor and wipe dry with a white paper towel. If it is still white then your wood floors are clean.
