Hardwood Floor Cleaner Reviews

We hear the same question from many of our customers… “What is the best product to clean our hardwood floors?” What many people don’t know is that there are many cleaners sold in stores that claim to be good for wood floors but can actually damage your them.  In particular, oil soap cleaners can build up and create problems when it’s time to add a maintenance coat to your floor. It’s extremely important to avoid these types of cleaners.

While water mixed with a little vinegar does just fine, there are a handful of great neutral pH cleaners that we highly recommend.  Here are a few reviews for our favorites. To purchase them for a low price from Amazon, just click the link given. For many of the products, different sizes are also available.

The BonaKemi 4-Piece Hardwood Floor Care System Provides a 32-ounce spray bottle of hardwood-floor cleaner, whose premium, non-toxic formula offers an environmentally responsible cleaning option while leaving behind no gummy or dulling residue often deposited by traditional waxes and cleaners.

Best of all, the system includes two reusable, machine-washable microfiber cleaning pads (an easy-glide pad for mopping and a fluffy, absorbent pad for dusting) with gentle fibers that won’t scratch or damage floor surfaces.
