    Default Best tools to clean hardwood floors?

    What do you use? Would You recommend it? Surely someone has invented some useful tools that will make the job easier!

    I use a normal pull along vacuum and a strong mop. It gets them clean but it takes forever. I rarely get around to mopping because by the time I get everything tidied up and vacuumed, I'm always trashed AND out of time! I'm looking at a steam mop and a stick vac but recommendations would be good thanks

    An Enjo floor pole and some fibres will change your life.

    So much lower impact than vacuuming.

    Oh definitely the ENJO floor cleaner. So so quick and comfortable to use, I use it several times a day (the dust fibre) and with the mop fibre the floor dries super quick because you only use a spray bottle to wet the mop. And it is the best thing for hardwood floors because you don't use chemicals so there is no residue so no streaking and it stays cleaner for longer. They are on sale until the 31st...PM me for more details if you like x

    I use a regular vacuum and this Vileda mop:

    You just fill the bottle attachment with a small amount of floor cleaner and hot water and you spray and mop as you go. No dragging a bucket of water around and the floors dry really quickly.

    When we're a bit more cashed up I'm buying a Dyson stick vac with the intention of doing away with the old pull along vacuum altogether.

    I've already got one of the Oates version, I think it sounds like the same thing?

    Yes I'd love one of those, I find the pull along so cumbersome. But would stick vacs scratch wooden floors ?

    They definitely don't compare. Especially the pole. I would want to throw my Oates one out the window every time I used it but my Enjo one is wonderful. So so so easy to use.

    I just got a stick vacuum recently as it was too annoying pulling out my big dyson vacuum several times a day to clean up after messy toddler. I don't think it scratches the floors.

    I bought this Electrolux stick vac over a Dyson one.

    It's definitely quick and easy to vacuum my hard floors now..just need a quicker way to mop and I will be set!

    Woolies have this for $20 at the moment http://www.sabco.com.au/index.php/pr...ardwood-system seriously considering getting one. I used to have something similar and it was so easy to just run that over the floor of a night.
