Full Answer

Wood flooring is best maintained with regular sweeping using a soft-bristled broom. Professional hardwood floor cleaner is the recommended soap for wood flooring; however, now that Pine-Sol has altered its formula, it is considered safe. Ammonia or oil-based soaps can dull the finish. Products specifically designed to clean vinyl flooring can make wood flooring slippery. Water, Pine-Sol or other liquids should never be left to dry from a puddle because they cause warping in the wood.
