How do I clean my floors?
Each finish is different and requires different cleaners. For most non-wax finishes, we recommend using Artisan Premium Floor Cleaner on all of your hardwoods. Surface finishes like polyurethane require only simple care. Just dust-mop and sweep or vacuum regularly. Always follow the manufacturer’s cleaning recommendations if known. If you are unsure about your finish it is always best to contact a professional before putting any type of cleanser on your floors.

Can cleaning products for vinyl or tile floors be used on wood floors as well?
No. Never use sheet vinyl or tile floor care products on wood floors. And never use self-polishing acrylic waxes on wood floors. These waxes cause wood to become slippery and dull. In this case, the floor must be sanded and refinished.
How do I clean my wax finish floors?
Dust-mop or vacuum regularly, and use a buffer to maintain the shine. Always follow the manufacturer’s cleaning recommendations if known.
How do I know if I have a wax finish?
The best way to know what type of finish your floors have is to ask the person/company who applied the finish. But often times that person is not available. You can easily test for a wax finish by putting a few drops of water on your floor in an inconspicuous place. If after a few minutes the area turns white or cloudy then you most likely have a wax finish.
Does Artisan Hardwood Floors offer a cleaning service for hardwood floors?
