The Best Way To Clean Wood Floors
Over the years I have had a chance to try just about every brand of wood floor care product on the market. But nothing holds a candle to Woodpecker Concentrated Laminate, Hardwood and Parquet Floor Cleaner.
To mix up this concentrate just add 2 teaspoons of Woodpecker to a litre of water and fill a spray bottle for the flat mop system. Or add 1/4 cup per gallon of warm water if you wish to use a regular mop system.
It works well on both hardwood and laminate floors. We also use it on tile and linoleum floors. The trick is to have the right flat mop pad to pick up and trap the soil . We use the Vileda flat mop pad system because it picks up more dirt and soil.
The easiest way to use this system is to vacuum first.
For the flat mop system, we like to moisten the pads first, then wring them out well.
Next, lightly spray a 5' square area of the floor and then mop. Work your way backwards out of the room to avoid leaving footprints. You will need at least one fresh pad per 10 square feet of floor. You can either rinse out the pad, or have several extra pads ready for the job of an entire house. In our cleaning business, we have about 10 pads for an entire house ready to go.
If you have a lot of soiling on the floor due to pets, or if you are behind in your cleaning, then for a 10' by 10' room you will have to rinse out the pad at least 6 times, or have 6 or more pads ready to go.
Alternately, the Vileda strip mop and a bucket can be used. Just be careful not to get too much water on the floor. Just add about a tablespoon of Woodpecker Concentrate to a pail of water and use the strip mop. Rinse and wring out till almost dry. Repeat until you get the job done.
Then stand back and admire your work. (also check for spots that you may have missed, the way we do!)
Woodpecker never streaks! And it is Environmentally Safe and Non Toxic!
