Hard surfaces like timber are suitable for sweeping or vacuuming with a soft brush attachment. When this is done on a regular basis it not only keeps the floor clean, it also helps prevent damaged by removing grit that could cause scratches.

It is also possible to clean the timber floor with a damp mop. But this should never be too wet as prolonged exposure to moisture will cause the timber floorboards to buckle.

Never use steam mops on a hardwood floor as the heat and moisture will cause serious damage.
