Cleaning wood floors
For the first time, I finally have wood floors. I must say, they scare me a little bit when I see all the dust that accumulates on them and to think about that equal amount in the carpet. With the wood I can see it and therefore I know to clean it but I don't really have a good idea of how. My problems are this:
1. General dusting. How do most of you do it, please be specific. Do you just run a dry mop over it? I have been sweeping and that has not been overly effective. I also have an electric broom that is junk and I hope to one day upgrade but that is in the future. With the general dust as well, how do you handle things such as under the bed (I have no dust ruffle) or under the couch, etc.
2. When mopping I get streaks. Any idea of what is causing this. I am now at the point where I only use water for mopping (I notice the streaks on the tile as well, just not quite as badly). How often do you mop? How do you handle little spots (like a baby spitting up on the floor)and what can be done about all of those footprints.
I am sorry, I know that it is a lot for one post but I greatly appreciate any help that can be offered.
