Jim: I agree with Jay' response. If these are not urethane finished floors, you have a littme more leeway in cleaning. You can find a floor cleaner at Walmart that can be used, but if you have the urethane finish. Read the can labels completely. You might also contact a paint store in your area for help or a flooring center. No water ever on wood floors. Do some on-line research too. Go to YAHOO and search there. I found some helpful info there. DO NOT USE ANYTHING WITHOUT CONTACTING THE MANUAFCTURER OR THE PERSON WHO DID YOUR FLOORS ORIGINALLY. Otherwise, you could be setting yourself up for big trouble down the road. Good luck.
