I just use a broom and go over them with the Shark Steam Mop. I love that thing…don’t even have to use floor cleaner with it. It’s great to not need a bucket and have to wring out a mop every few seconds! I have a swiffer sweeper/mop, but it doesn’t work well for my floors at all.

sheepandbear:   we have all wood floors throughout our house..I vacuum daily and wash once a week…I have a German shepherd so I have to vacuum daily lol…but I just use a swiffer mop with the cleaning solution attached to it and it works well and is way faster than the traditional mop and bucket

sheepandbear:  I love wood floors! They are so much easier to keep clean than carpet. I have a Roomba, which I run 3-4 times per week. I highly recommend the Roomba – it works so well and picks up a TON of dirt. It is a little pricey, but I think well worth it. I just turn it on and it takes about 1.5 hours to vacuum my main living areas while I have time to do other things like cook/laundry.

Then once a week I use the Shark steam mop to truly clean the floors. I like this brand/model because it uses only water to clean (no chemicals on the floor for my pup!) and the soft pad on the bottom is washable and reusable.

my parents have wood floors in the living room & hallway. it just gets vaccuumed like normal, and my mom runs a dry swiffer cloth over it every other day. if it has to be really cleaned, she uses wood cleaner and a special mop that she bought ages ago.

I go over with a bare floor vac and then steam them. Sooo easy.  If they’re not really dirty (i.e., don’t really need to be vacuumed), I just steam.

We don’t have any pets, but we do have allergies.

We vacuum once a week, but use a Swiffer dry cloth mop everyday (I just walk around with it in the morning as I drink my coffee). I don’t mop weekly, but our apartment gets a professional deep clean once a month. We also don’t wear shoes in the house ever.

I vacuum with my Dyson DC45 and then I have a squirt mop. It has a little fluid canister that you can fill with anything – I just use warm water with a cleaning solution and squirt enough to make them damp and there is a washable microfibre cloth on the mop.

I would use swiffer (dry) to sweep off the floor from dust & dirt then use the swiffer wetjet. I also use Dyson vaccuum to collect dust & other particles. I probably do it once every 2 or 3 weeks. Also, its just me and SO at home so its really low maintenance. the only time that an emergency cleaning is done would be after hosting a party.

We have a dog as well and I am allergic to verythign under the sun.  I probably vacuume atleast once aweek adn clean the floors with Bona hard wood floor cleaner…so much easier than my steamer which didn’t seem to really “clean” the floor.
