Need Opinions on Engineered Woods and cleaning
December 14, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I will be choosing a floor this weekend...engineered wood or laminate.
I like to mop my floor once a week but was told you cannot mop an engineered floor with water!? Can you tell me how you maintain your engineered woods? Are laminates better?

Not sure who told you not to mop engineered floor with water, as long as a reasonably amount of dampness engineered floors are as durable as real hardwood and more appealing than laminate.

Engineered flooring is like the best of both worlds. Less expensive than hardwood and nicer to look at than laminate. A damp mop will not harm any floor but there are cleaners for hardwood that you can use if you are worried.

You can use water to clean an engineered hardwood floor, but not sloshing water, more like wrung-out rag amount of water.
