    Arrow Cleaning engineered wood floors? Shark mop??

    So one room in my house has engineered floors (it was on a slab, and couldn't put down 3/4) I don't hate them as much as I thought, but they always have dog prints, dust, tracks....on them...what do you guys use to clean them with?

    Someone recommended one of the Sharks, what is your guys take on them?

    By engineered you mean something like Pergo, right?

    The Shark steam mop MAY work since they dry so fast. You can't get those floors wet or the seams buckle. Maybe Pledge or Endust on one of those chenille dust mops? The type with all the chenille fingers?

    I have a laminate wood floor and I just use a Swiffer Wet Jet when I need it. I spritz on enough of the liquid cleaner to be damp and go over it small sections at a time. It dries very quickly without leaving a residue. For tougher spots (like when the cat walks out of his box without wiping his paws, lol) I use pledge and a sponge to scrub the spot. Easy enough!
