    Default Floor has streaks after mopping

    My cleaners are leaving my floors with streaks after they have mopped and the floor has dried. The floors are jarrah polished floor boards.

    Any ideas what they are doing wrong?

    Maybe they're not using a floor cleaner designed for wood floors? I know if I use anything but wood floor cleaner, there's streaky marks everywhere and no one likes streaky marks!

    Thanks for the tip. Maybe I better buy some wood floor cleaner for them to use.

    Any recommendations?

    I use the Orange Power one as it was the only wood cleaner at my local IGA! You just spray as you go, I use a dry microfibre mop with it.

    Good luck!

    I used a special wood cleaner. I think eco brand. I mix it in a spray bottle with water as is a concentrated solution. Then I dampen a mop slightly...spray it on floors and wipe over.
    If you use the wrong kind of cleaner it will streak. I've made that mistake before. I used to have polished timber floors.

    I use a wood cleaner - only a tiny bit in a bucket of really hot hot water. I find if the water is too cold it will streak. Also make sure your mop can be really rung out - some hold too much water which can streak
