Cleaning hardwood floors is not an easy task. They usually get very dirty and sometimes sticky overtime. You have to clean them in special ways. So I’ve gathered some info on how to clean hardwood floors and this is what I came up with.
This will guide you on how to clean your hardwood floors.
CREATE A DIY HARDWOOD FLOOR CLEANER
This might sound a bit difficult but trust me, it isn’t. The first thing you need is an empty glass cleaner spray bottle. Then you need the following ingredients.
- 3 tbsp of vinegar
- tip of essential oil (lemon)
- 2 tsp of pine sol
- 1 tbsp of olive oil
- warm water (pour it into the spray bottle until it reaches halfway)
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO FIRST
Be sure to clean the floor first. Try to sweep or vacuum it so you can get rid of all the dust that was on it. After doing that, you should use a clean damp mop to clean the floors(make sure to use warm water on the mop). Then use a dry clean towel to dry the floor. If you leave any liquid on hardwood floors it might damage them. So it’s best to always dry up after something is spilled or when you are mopping it. I don’t recommend air drying.
Spray the mixture all over the floor.
The next thing you need to do is to spray the mixture all over the floor. After that, you should use a clean damp mop to wipe the floor.
After doing this you should use a towel to dry the floor.
This will make your floors look shiny and clean.
