If you own or rent a home, you know both the positives and negatives of having hardwood floors in your house. While they look gorgeous and make spills easy to clean up, if you don’t keep up on cleaning they can start to look dull and half of their once beautiful selves. To avoid this, you can keep up on your house cleaning and make sure to use ideal cleaning products. But how can you make them as clean as possible? Below, the team at DJW Property Management has compiled a list of ways to get your floor as clean and shiny as you can. Check it out!


Unfortunately for people who don’t love to clean, just using a broom won’t keep your floors clean. At least once a week, you should go ahead and do some sort of wet cleaning of the hardwood. A recommended product would be the Swiffer Sweeper, or some variation of that. You can buy pre-soaked washing pads to attach to the sweeper that will help you get those squeaky clean floors. Another great option that achieves a similar result is a wet mop. You can choose to just use water, or you can mix in your own cleaners. Or, if you’re old fashioned, you can always choose the old get on your knees and scrub with a sponge.

Hardwood Restorer

The information above is pretty basic, and while it will make your floor look clean it won’t make it look brand new. If you’re looking to make your floors look even better than this, you should look into a hardwood floor restorer. Hardwood floor restorers help to add shine to your floor. They offer different products for different floor finishes, so every floor type can use the restorer. Not only this, but the floor restorers are extremely cheap relative to having a professional come out.

Call a Professional

If you’re really itching to get your floors looking as good as they possibly can and have already unsuccessfully tried the above options, you may want to look into hiring a professional cleaner. No matter how hard we try, we will never be able to match up to the cleaning machines that professional cleaners have. They have specialized cleaning processes that will leave your floors spic and span.
