Keeping your Hardwood Floor is essential for the longevity of your flooring. Since dirt combined with foot traffic act as a sand paper, removing it is crucial. We recommend to use cloth or a vacuum cleaner that has a soft bristled wand. Upright vacuums are not recommended. After vacuuming use AkovasH Hardwood Floor Cleaner. Follow diluting instructions on bottle. After vacuuming spray AkovasH Cleaner on a terry towel, wipe floor in the direction of the wood grain. Allow the surface to dry for about 15 minutes. After construction or floors that are extremely dirty, can be damply mopped. In this case use 2-1 gallon buckets. One for the Soap (2oz concentrated soap) and 1 for clean water. Immerse the mop in the soapy water and wring it out until it is only half wet. Clean the first section of the floor. Rinse the mop in the bucket of clean water and wring it out thoroughly. Immerse the mop in the soapy water and wring it out until it is only half wet. Clean the next section of the floor. Do not leave any surplus water on the floor. Do not walk on the floor until completely dry (30 mins).
