    If you have the legit hardwood, not laminate, paste wax for wood floors is the tried and true way. Buff using a floor polisher with lambskin (or equivalent) pads. But if you wish an alternative, I have an old house (+60years),so I'm not too fussy. Once I have the floors cleaned and dry, I apply 2-3 coats of an acrylic floor polish with a new sponge mop. To speed up the drying, I spray the polish on the floor and use the mop to spread it thinly.

    Hope this helps.

    We have had hardwood floors in our 7 different homes and have used a lot of HW floor products over the years. We stopped using the steam mop when it started blistering off the finish at the seams on a new traditional oil based sealed oak hw floor installation.

    The past two years we have been using the BONA mop and solution and we’re very pleased with the results.
