Help! Footprints on wood floor!
We recently put down strand-woven bamboo floors in our whole house. The stain is walnut and the finish is a 7-layer aluminum oxide. The installer was using Old English to polish the floors and coated them in a heavy layer after installation. He said the "initial soak" would keep the floors shiny, but recommended we clean them with a water and vinegar mixture.
I've been reading up on how to clean these floors, and everyone seems to have different and conflicting suggestions. Overall, it seems that Old English/Murphy's Oil Soap/Orange-Glo are NOT the right products to use on pre-finished floors. So, needless to say I'm a tad miffed at the installer.
I went to National Vacuum to purchase a canister vacuum and spotted a floor cleaner they had. The salesman demonstrated its evaporation rate and assured me it was neutral pH, which seemed like what I needed. The product is called P&H Floor Cleaner by Exact-Chem. It doesn't really have an ingredients list.
Anyways, the reason I am posting is because this is what the floor looks like just a couple of hours after vacuuming and damp mopping:
Is this the "film" everyone talks about after they put Murphy's Oil Soap on pre-finished floors (and so my installer messed up)? Or am I doing something wrong?
