Help! I am extremely frustrated with my hardwood floor. We have the Armstrong Sugar Creek Solid Plank in cherry, so it is quite dark. I have two problems. First, we had been using the Orange Glo on it, so we have the same problem many others have had, a hazy, milky residue that we can't get off. I've read so many conflicting things (Windex, Quick Shine, wax stripper) I don't what to do to get this residue off.
Wow. Some of those "glo"products are not supposed to be used on hardwood floors. Contact customer service at the Armstrong Co. to see what is wrong. Then go back to your guy who did the one room and tell him to fix it. It may have to be stripped and re-sanded, then re-finished.
We had our old hardwood floors refinished and were told by the re-finisher that if we ever used Murphy's Wood Soap that we would have to re-sand.
I clean my lovely old hardwood with a LITTLE bit of vinegar in warm water and just mop.
When I called about ours, the flooring company told me not to use any cleaning products or vinegar on them. He said vinegar would dry them out.
I now use Avon bubble bath, and my floors are clean and my house smells wonderful too!
