We are finally getting our new hardwood flooring installed tomorrow and Wednesday. What is the best and most budget friendly way to keep it clean and very shiny? The old flooring (laminate) was ripped up due to water coming in on our floors when we lost a wall. I saw what the water did to the laminate so we decided to go with hardwood. I have a steam mop but it always left streaks on our laminate. We had alot of damage from the tornado on May 25th and are finally starting to get some work done to put our house back together.
