Since the #1 culprit of damage to floors is dirt (grit, sand & dust), it is best to use a dry, untreated microfiber dust mop or a vacuum daily when possible. Damp mopping is recommended on a weekly basis and whenever there are visible spills. Be sure to thoroughly clean your mop and bucket after every use, and replace water frequently while mopping. A dirty mop can actually cause the damage you are seeking to avoid, so rinsing often is also recommended.
