Do you have hardwood floors? Don’t use your water to clean them. Wood and plain water just don’t mix. When cleaning hardwood floors, use a warm water and 5 percent vinegar solution. Wring the sponge or mop twice to avoid puddles or seepage. For prefinished hardwood floors, clean and wax with products offered or recommended by the manufacturer so you don’t void any warranties. Either way, never slosh or over saturate any hardwood surface.
