Use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust and small particles on the floor. Remember do not use a thick bristled attachment on the hardwood floor, because it will damage the finish and even leave scratches on the surface.




3. Mop the floor

Dip the microfiber mop into the cleaning solution and spread it around the flooring. We need to replace the cleaning solution once it’s getting dirty. Try not to use the wet mop to mop the wood floor because a wet mop will cause the wood floor to swell up due to the excessive water on the wood floor surface.



4. Dry the floor
