The number one reason for foggy and filmy looking floors after cleaning is TOO MUCH CLEANER in the mixture!
This is a case where a little truly does go a long way. Make sure you follow the instructions when mixing your cleaner into the water.
If your floors are extra dusty / dirty after a family party or event of that nature, it may require a second cleaning, as all the dirt may not have come up with the initial cleaning. This may be another common cause for seeing a “film” on the floor.
Most wax / soap based cleaners will leave some form of residue or film on the hard surface. The most common way to eliminate the buildup of this film is to use a simple solution of water and vinegar: two parts water to one part vinegar. However, since vinegar is slightly acidic it can, with long-term use, cause premature or accelerated wear to the finish of your hard surface. Use sparingly!!!
