It especially won't do a good job on grout. If you have shine on your floor, it will leave a residue, unless you somehow rinse the floors after. I don't recommend using any products that soak the floor in water, especially not hardwood. So, overall my answer is no, but if you use it on tiles it won't hurt them (but won't clean them very well.)
If you are looking for a commercial cleaner, I like pledge floor cleaner concentrate for all floors. You mix it with water, and works well with my mop system. (Vileda refillable spray mop with reusable microfibre pads.) cuts grease, and doesn't dry hardwood out.
However, I actually prefer my own mix, which is:
40% cleaning vinegar
60% distilled water
2 squirts castille soap (whichever you like best, I like almond)
2-3 drops tea tree oil.
Shake it up, then let is sit overnight, works as a great all purpose mix, and does a great job on floors.
What castille soap do you use? I tried such a solution with Dr. Bronners and it curdled and turned to a thick goop. Thanks.
