What is the best way to clean really dirty hardwood floors?

  • Sweep or Vacuum: Begin by removing loose dirt and debris from the floor. Use a soft-bristle broom or a vacuum cleaner with a floor attachment. This helps prevent scratching when you start mopping.

  • Choose the right cleaner: Select a hardwood floor cleaner that is specifically designed for deep cleaning. Make sure it is suitable for your type of wood floor finish. At Lenehans we offer a variety of wooden floor cleaners, available for next day delivery nationwide. The Malone’s Natural Spray And Mop Wooden Floor Cleaner. Alternatively, Astonish has a vast range of vegan products including a wooden floor cleaner that will help you to achieve a brilliant shine. You can also use a mixture of water and a few drops of mild dish soap or a quarter cup of vinegar mixed with a gallon of warm water.

  • Spot Clean Tough Stains: For stubborn stains or heavily soiled areas, you may need to spot clean. Apply a small amount of the cleaner directly to the stain and gently scrub with a soft brush or an old toothbrush.

  • Use a Damp Mop: Moisten a microfiber mop or a well-wrung mop in your chosen cleaning solution. Ensure the mop is just damp, not wet, as excessive water can damage hardwood floors.

  • Work in Sections: Clean the floor in small sections, moving methodically across the room. This prevents the cleaner from drying on the floor before you have a chance to wipe it away.

  • Dry the Floor: After cleaning each section, dry the floor immediately with a clean, dry microfiber cloth or towel. This helps prevent the wood from absorbing excess moisture.

  • Consider a Hardwood Floor Polish: If your floor still looks dull after cleaning, you might consider using a hardwood floor polish. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully.
