As a side note, Lorrie thinks our flooring may be fading (I am not as sure due to shadows when looking at the corners vs. main walking areas). Have you noticed that in yours?
We initially used a wet swiffer because that's all we had (we were still at the dealer) and made about 6-8 passes, each with a fresh pad, pressing hard. Each pad was filthy afterwards but they gradually ended up a bit cleaner.
That mostly did the trick, but I didn't like using the swiffer pads and we abandoned them. Then we did a couple of passes on hands/knees using a microfiber rag and the only cleaner I use in the AS -- Mrs Meyers Clean Day Multi-Surface Everyday Cleaner, Basil scent, rinsing several times.
Since then, we've had no problems with the floor. I vacuum every day (takes two minutes) and on laundry day about once a week or less, we wash the floor with a swiffer-like stick product that uses a washable microfiber pad instead of a swiffer pad. We wet the pad and spray a little Mrs Meyers on the floor and scrub. Then we rinse the pad and go over the floor one more time to remove the cleaner. Then the microfiber pad gets washed/dried when we do the laundry.
We slip our shoes off at the entry and always go barefoot inside or on cold mornings, we wear socks.
I haven't noticed any fading.
