Q: I have a very "picky" landlord (who is a relative as well) and in the apartment I'm renting there are hardwood floors. He claims to know every spot of them and I recently (and stupidly) tried the Shark Steam Mop. Now, there are patches of stripped wood and I really need some suggestions because I don't want to have a spoiled relationship due to floors.
