An uneven wooden floor with patches is a sight to loathe but, a shiny and glowing wooden floor adds the elegance of a place. Just like polishing shoes, wooden floors when polished repeatedly over a period of time adapt the shininess. The task of moping and cleaning will then lessen taking very little time to have the whole floor glowing. Every other week is ideal for polishing the floor. But, if there is a lot of traffic on the floor then duration of a week would work best.

Remember, the best hardwood polish is the one that will maintain the floor by sealing the scratches and protect it from having other scratches and also leaving it shining.
