Many of our customers have questions about engineered wood floor care, and of course, we’re always on hand to help should you wish to get in touch or visit us in-store, but we’ve compiled some of the most common below:
Can you steam clean engineered wood floors?
Unfortunately, no, it’s not advisable to steam clean engineered wood floors due to their construction. The high heat and pressure will force moisture down into the joins and the lower layers of the wood, causing it to warp and bow, which will inevitably lead to your flooring needing to be replaced much sooner than you expected!
What is the best cleaner for engineered wood floors?
There are no ‘best’ cleaning products for engineered wood floors, but there are several you can’t use, such as those that are wax or ammonia-based, or those with harsh chemicals.
There are specially designed engineered and hardwood floor cleaners you can buy that will be safe to use. Different manufacturers recommend different ones, and we suggest testing the cleaner on a spare board before using it on your floor.
