The best way to clean hardwood floors 

If you're going to have wood flooring in your kitchen, you're going to want to know how to keep it clean. After all, the kitchen is a high traffic and spill area in most homes. Caring for wood flooring isn't as hard as many people think. Here are a few tips from Indianapolis hardwood flooring resource, Kermans:
  • Sweep your floor daily.
  • Clean up spills immediately with a clean towel.
  • Do not use cleaning products regularly. Use them to spot clean only to help maintain your wood's finish.
  • Place floor mats at entryways to collect dirt that might be tracked in.
  • Never wet mop your wood floor.
