How to Care for Engineered Hardwood Flooring
We had our home built and closed on it 15 months ago. Unfortunately, the builder installed Mannington engineered floors. We are on concrete slab. I have tried everything for cleaning as specifically recommended by Mannington from Simple green, vinegar/water, Mannington floor cleaner and Windex. Yes, Windex was recommended by Mannington. This seems to be a common problem with engineered floors. They look ok for about 10 hours and soon after that, look like they need to be cleaned again. Extremely frustrating. We have a no shoe home. I have tried for 15 months to get into a satisfactory solution to keep the floors looking as clean as they really are, to no avail. Had I known then what I know now, I NEVER would have had these pathetic floors installed, but rather have installed high quality vinyl plank. Unfortunately, oak wood floors are not an option on slab. I would not recommend engineered wood floors under any circumstances. Save your ????. Theresa Palm

Engineered Hardwood Flooring Care & Cleaning
I can’t take it anymore. I have dogs, yes, but the paw prints every time they go in the yard are killing me. We use either just water or Bona to clean the floors, clean the floors, clean the floors, did I say clean the floors? Ugh.. I use a microfiber mop or wringer mop with the special bucket that wrings it out well. There must be something out there that will give them a little shine again? They are only 2 1/2 years old. Someone, anyone, help me, and tell me what I can use that doesn’t leave a whitish film on them. I am at my wits end.

Top 10 Engineered Hardwood Flooring FAQs
All engineered hardwood will have trace amounts of formaldehyde in the adhesive used to put the material together. That being said it, it doesn’t mean that the floor will be harmful to your health. It would be best to go with an engineered hardwood that has a plywood core over and HDF core because that minimizes the amount of glue used to manufacture the product.
