Is it safe to clean hardwood floors with a steam mop?

Question:

Is it safe to clean hardwood floors with a steam mop?

Answer:

The National Wood Flooring Association does not endorse steam cleaners and neither does Bona. Water is wood’s No. 1 enemy. If the finish is worn, scratched, or has gaps and crack, steam could seep into your wood floors, eventually causing damage.
