Conform24... While I don't have any hardwood floor customers I do have 1 customer with a pergo type flooring. I use a dry mop-microfiber pad that has a short loop and it works well. I have used a stick vacuum attached to a vacuum brush floor tool which worked ok, make sure to clean the brush tool to remove hair & other debris caught in the bristles. Brad BD janitorial
These are the DRY MOP Pads I use from Amazon

This is a kind of strange question. Any decent vacuum cleaner will work fine on wood floors. The problem is what cleaning product you use to mop them, and HOW you mop them. Buy a reputable hardwood floor cleaner, and use only soft cloths on your mop head.

Hard floor attachment

Just make sure they are leaving marks on the floor from wheels or skids underneath them.
Gulpers seem to work well and quickly.
Again, just be careful they don't leave rubber from wheels etc.

That appears to be a vacuum cleaner head of some sort. How is it different from others?

They are very quick as opposed to normal heads.
They swivel easily to change directions and get into corners etc.
Good for commercial stuff using a backpack.

If the surface is not that difficult, then it is best to use a robot vacuum cleaner. I just love using robotic vacuum cleaners because it is very convenient and saves a lot of time. The variety of robot vacuum cleaners on the market is simply huge and it is difficult to choose one model, but for me my favorite is the Irobot Roomba 675 robot vacuum cleaner. I read about this vacuum cleaner at this site and very soon this vacuum cleaner was already cleaning in my house because I really liked its characteristics, and then exactly how it cleans. The coolest thing is that it can also be configured using a smartphone.

Since you are looking for a hard-floor vacuum cleaner, here's a source you might check. The author focused on vacuum cleaners suitable for both hardwood and carpets here.

Cleaning Floor

I don't recommend a vacuum cleaner for hardwoord floors. We have been cleaning houses since 1997 and found the best cleaning solution is a wide microfibre flat mop. Moisten the microfibre by spraying it with gentle soap and water. You don't need it to be very wet to pick up the dirt and dust. If it is too wet when the water dries it will leave streaks. Upright vacuums are not meant for hardwoor floors. I hope that helps.

I tried different once, but Dyson for me is the best one for any flooring. Also, you can use a steam mop to make them even cleaner

If you specifaclly want to know the name of vacuum cleaner for hardwood floor cleaning, I will definitely name Hoover UH73510, Dyson V11, BISSELL CrossWave. There are many such vacuums, which are good for floor cleaning. I mentioned a few names here. And obviously, vacuum cleaners are better than any other tool for hardwood floor cleaning.

I have been using Dettol floor cleaner to wipe the floors clean once I've vacuumed off the dust. So far the results have been positive.

So, any vacuum will work, even SOME uprights. However, any vacuum you use needs to have the ability to turn off the beater bar(the rotating bar for carpet). Otherwise you'll be kicking stuff out behind the vacuum and potentially scratching the floors.


As for moping:


Get a Swifter, toss out the wasteful pads that come with it. Get some microfiber cleaning cloths, they work great on Swifters. Get a small spray bottle, fill it like 90% full with water then add a small amount vinegar. Rinse the cleaning cloth every like 5 feet and squeeze as much water as you can out of it. Spray the floor with the vinegar solution ..then mop.



ALWAYS work in like 5 foot segments. Cleaning more floor then this will just leave streaks of dirty water.


You could also just use a small squirt of dish soap honestly.


NEVER use Murphy's Oil soap on hardwood floors. The bottle says that is what is is for but, it will leave a residue on the floor over time. The company that makes it has even said in letters to people that you shouldn't use it on floors but..... they still market it that way. It's so annoying.
