I work for a major wood flooring company. You should not by any means use Murphy's oil, water and vinegar or a steam vac on hardwood flooring whether it's solid or engineered. These products can not only dull or strip your finish but can also void your warranty. Steam mops are especially harmful since you are adding moisture to the flooring which is not good for stability. I have found that the best product to use on all wood flooring surfaces that is safe for the finish is Bona products. But you should always consult with the manufacturer of your floors if it's prefinished. Bona is safe for prefinished and site finished urethane wood floors and will not harm the finish.
