An engineered hardwood floor—as opposed to a traditional hardwood floor, made of only wood—comprises several layers. While the surface of the engineered hardwood is genuine hardwood, the underlying layers are typically made of plywood or high-density fiberboard. You should sweep or dry mop regularly to prevent scratches. A microfiber mop is gentle and effective. If you choose to use a vacuum, make sure to use the “hard floor” setting. This will disable the rotating bristle bar, which can leave scratches. When the floors start to get a buildup of dirt, clean them with a damp mop and a mild solution of vinegar and water. Never use a soaking-wet mop because even though engineered floors are moisture-resistant, it’s never a good idea to drench them completely. Since floorboards are generally pre-finished, waxes or harsh chemical cleaners are generally not recommended.
