I clean my poly-coated wood floors with hot water and vinegar and it works very well. The only problem I am having is it does not remove footprints from the dog or people. I am sure this is from the natural oils on the foot. I can get them off if I clean them on my hands and knees, but due to health problems this becomes very painful. If anyone has any tips I would love to hear them.
I clean mine with my swiffer wet jet.
Hot water is not always good, warm is. Get a car buffer. Many different kinds and extended handles. Like the old shoe polishers of yesteryear. Buff the floor. I take a couple of wash clothes, you can take old towels and make stitch them in a fold to fit your shoes, just skate the floor clean. Many other ways, like tell the kids to scoot on their butts works too.
