Mohawk Hardwood Floors are very easily maintained. No wax, no mess. Simply use a Mohawk Floor Care Essentials Hard Surface Care Kit featuring the Mohawk FloorCare Essentials Hard Surface Cleaner and a specialty terry cloth flooring mop available from at Mohawk flooring retailers.


Vacuum or sweep your floor using a Mohawk FloorCare Essentials "Dry" Mop Cloth to remove any particles that could scratch your floor.

Warning: Vacuums with a beater bar or power rotary brush head can damage a wood floor and never be used.


Apply the Mohawk Floor Care Essentials Hard Surface Cleaner directly to the Mohawk Microfiber Wet Mop Cloth until wet.


Use a back and forth motion with the mop. When the Microfiber mop cloth becomes soiled simply replace it with a clean one. Cleaning the floor with a soiled cover mop cloth could cause streaking. Mohawk Microfiber mop cloths are completely reusable and can withstand over 1000 wash cycles. Do not use bleach or fabric softener when washing Microfiber cloths.

Protecting your investments:

Countersink and fill all nail holes. Vacuum or sweep regularly. Remove spills promptly using a clean, dry terry Microfiber cloth and clean residual from spill with Mohawk Floor Care Essentials Hard Surface Cleaner and a clean white Microfiber cloth.
