Question: Is it safe to steam clean hardwood flooring?
Top Answer (44% of 89 votes): No.

Answer: Yes
Explanation: A question that is commonly asked a few times per week, so here is our definitive answer : Yes, using steam on hardwood floors is an excellent way to sanitize them and it poses no problems to the wood surface, given that the operator uses the right technique. If you have hardwood floors, you know how hard and time consuming it is to clean them with traditional methods. People are usually afraid to damage the wood by using cleaning products or too much water. Of course, excess water is never good for hardwood floors. Dry steam will NOT damage the wood because very little water and no chemicals are used in the process. It is in fact the most natural and efficient way to deep clean any surface. The heat generated by steam will not damage the finish if the user uses a thick microfiber cloth over the heavy-duty rectangular floor tool that comes with your steam cleaner. Not only will your steam cleaner reduce cleaning time, but it will drastically improve the way your wood floors look!
