Is a beater bar vacuum safe on wood floors?

Q: We have acacia wood in pinot noir color by manufacturer Chateau. Can acacia hardwood wood floors be vacuumed with a vac that has a beater bar on it? Vacuum manufacturer says it’s safe on all hardwood floors.

A: I wouldn’t recommend using a beater bar on a wood floor. A simple soft floor brush and a micro weave mop are all the tools you will need along with a proper floor cleaner, manufactured by or for floor and floor finish manufacturers.
