That special care depends upon the material of your floor. If you’re not careful and following the advice of the manufacturer, you could be damaging them with every swipe of a soaking wet mop.

Natural Stone and Concrete 101
Natural stone and concrete floors may be durable but you need to know what not to use on it. Never use harsh chemicals such as ammonia or bleach to clean natural stone. In fact, vinegar can even ruin your stone floor. Nothing acidic should come near it. If your stone is unsealed, only clean with hot water and no cleaners at all. Vacuuming with the beater bar off or sweeping will remove dirt and dust. For a heavier cleaning or to remove stains on sealed stone and grout, steam cleaners work nicely without damaging your floors.
