Cleaning new floors

Posted by musicteacher (My Page) on

I love my new wood floors but they are dark and show dust bunnies - which in my case are mostly dog hairs. I am beginning to wonder if they have a life of their own, because they just float right up and over my broom or dust mop. Even my vaccum - which blows air out the front -seems to send them scurrying. Besides, I am a little worried about using my vaccum as it has hard plastic wheels. Could it scratch? I'm sure it would make a great sit-com - me running around grabbing dust bunnies in the air. Gotcha. Surely someone out there has found a better solution?

I use a microfiber mop. But I usually end up on my hands and knees at some point. I have 3 dogs.
