How To Use Bleach On Hardwood Floors

Bleach is a powerful cleaner that may be used on a range of surfaces, including hardwood floors. However, it must be used correctly to avoid damaging your floors. Here are some guidelines for bleaching hardwood floors safely and responsibly

  • Test the bleach on a tiny, inconspicuous section of your floor to guarantee that it will not discolor or harm the wood.
  • Before applying it to your flooring, dilute the bleach with water. One cup of bleach to one gallon of water is a decent ratio.
  • Apply the bleach solution to the floor with a mop or a cloth. Excess water can harm your floors, so be sure to squeeze out the mop or cleaning cloth before using it.
  • Do not keep the bleach solution on your floors for too long. It should just take a few minutes to clean the surface.
  • Rinse the floor with clean water after using bleach to eliminate any residue and prevent water damage, and thoroughly dry your flooring with a clean cloth.
  • Bleach may be quite strong and cause discoloration if not used appropriately. Consult Mr. Hardwood if you are uncertain about using bleach on your hardwood flooring.

It is important to be careful and take your time when trying to use bleach on hardwood floors. It is easy to cause damage to the wood if you are not careful. If all else fails, give Mr.Hardwood a call at 770-318-8880 for a free home estimate to restore the damaged area.
