Consider water an enemy to a wood floor. If it soaks in, warping and damage will ensue. Damp mopping is a method whereby the mop is barely wet, you do not want puddles of water on your wood floor. Depending on how much traffic your floor sees or in specific rooms (the kitchen), you may have to mop it as often as once a week ,other areas may need it much less.
Don't use vinyl or tile floor care products on wood floors. Acrylic waxes cause wood to become slippery and cloudy--which can only be fixed by sanding and refinishing.
Don't use ammonia cleaners they will dull the finish and performance of your floor.
Don't use vinegar. Low pH cleaners (acidic, like vinegar) can dissolve hard water and mineral deposits, but can't tackle dirt and grime. Many people rely on vinegar, but since it is an acid it will eventually dull the finish.
Don't use high pH cleaners (more alkaline, like harsher soaps) are good at dissolving dirt and grime. But will also eventually dull the finish.
For scuff marks use a sprinkle of baking soda on a damp sponge and rub.
