I just put down new hardwood floors in my home and im concerned i might do something wrong. I bought the Murpheys wood soap but was wandering if it is safe before i use it. Any ideas are welcome.

I haven't cleaned them myself. My wifes parents who we don't get on with now, used to buy in special cleaning sprays etc. they always had a shiny floor which was nice but her mother was always cleaning and being fussy over little things.. opps. sorry i have habit of sharing my storys with discussion. =) I don't really know. If you didn't know if it's safe, my suggestion would be to ask the store where you got it. if you like the reply then buy it and try it, if not then find a product which actaully shares if it's safe. ~Joey (Alot in the uk say weather or not they contain harmful things inside) =)

This is good advice maybe i should call the store back. When we bought it the salesman didn't tell us anything about cleaning it and i forgot to ask.

My parents have done that before. They believed some salesman which i forget what he was selling but i knew it was rubbish. (pardon my lang) they still bought whatever it was and felt ripped off. :) Thanks =) I'm sure the store will be able to help you. ~joey

When I got my new wood floors I bought the cleaner that was recommended by the flooring people. It comes in a gallon jug and you reconstitute it with water. It's called PolyCare. I've just stuck with that, but I'm sure that Murphy's is the same. People have been using it forever. The biggest thing with the wood floors is to keep them swept and free of things that could be ground into the flooring. I usually use the Swiffer once/day and sweep well every week.

Ok thank you for the help. I have been keeping them swept but haven't put anything on them yet. I believe the murphy's is good i just don't want to take any chances cause lord knows i dont want to ruin them. I could never go through that install process again.
