There are many over the counter oil-based soaps and wax based cleaning products that may damage or full the finish of your wood floor. The best suggesting is to only use the manufacturers recommended cleaning products on your hardwood flooring.
If your hardwood floors has a polyurethane finish never use a paste wax on the floor’s surface. A paste wax may form a sticky film on your floor and allow tracked in dirt to stick to your wood finish.
