Your hardwood floor is a beautiful part of your home’s interior. The aesthetic value it has is very dependent on the condition it is left in when you’re ready to sell your house or rent it an apartment. There are things that can take quite a toll on the floor – oil, dirt and grime can build up and negatively alter the appearance of your hardwood floor.


We can show you some of the methods to clean or remove marks and stains from your floor. You only need to pay attention to the floor’s finish before you try to clean it. Stains will penetrate the floor if it has a soft oiled finished. Follow these tips that can help you to clean up those stains:


  • Heel marks: Rub floor with floor wax, using fine steel wool.


  • Water marks and white stains: Take No. 000 steel wool to rub the spot with floor wax. If it’s still dark, then apply vinegar or bleach and let it soak in for approximately an hour, then wipe it up with a damp cloth.


  • Water marks and white stains: Use a No. 000 steel wool to rub floor wax onto the floor wax, then if the stain is still there, then you can sand the floor lightly and use fine steel wool and odorless mineral spirits to clean it.


  • Oil-based stains: Take a soft cloth and dishwashing detergent to rub the area in order to break the grease down, then rinse it off with water. Repeat the procedure if it didn’t work the first time, then let it dry. Smooth the area with fine sandpaper.
