Luxury Vinyl Tile - tips for cleaning any type of floor
Hardwood floors:
If you have waxed wood floors you don’t need to do much except sweep or use a vacuum a few times a week. For wood floors that aren’t waxed, you can use a wood-safe flooring cleaner once in a while with a mostly dry mop.  Your hardwood floors don’t need much water on them at all. Otherwise stick to sweeping or vacuuming.
Laminate floors: It’s important not to get water underneath your laminate floors. Stick with spot cleaning with a mop when necessary but otherwise vacuum (on floor mode, not carpet) and sweep frequently.
Vinyl floors: Real Simple has a great technique for keeping your vinyl floors looking great.  “For weekly cleaning, use Reichert’s spritz-and-dry mop technique to keep tile floors looking fresh: Gently mix 1/4 cup vinegar in a 16-ounce spray bottle with 1 drop of dish soap and warm water. Spray the floor one section at a time and wipe with a damp microfiber mop as you go.”  This also works for porcelain tile floors.
Tips for cleaning any type of floor
Natural stone: Natural stone floors are best cleaned with a mirco-fiber cloth and hot water to avoid getting any chemicals into the stone itself.
