I'm moving into a new apartment that has wood floors. The wood floors have
a layer of dirt of them (you can't see it, but a wipe with a paper towel
shows tons of dirt).
I read wet mopping is out of the question, so what's the approach? I'm
going to try vacuuming and see how that works, but can I use a damp
microfiber mop or something? I'm thinking a little dampness either will be
required or will just make it easier.
I spray on a solution of cider vinegar and water (you can use regular vinegar
but I like the smell of the cider vinegar) and wipe it off with one of those
wide faced hardwood floor mops. Quikie makes one. The face of the mop is
covered with a terry cloth liner/ The idea is to just mist the floor. I have
also used the Zep brand hardwood floor cleaner with good results.
All theabove material sans the cider vinegar can be found at Homies.
I have red oak 3/4" HW floors covered with an oil based poly.
