How do I know which WoodGlo option is best for me?

If you are looking to remove dirt, dust, grime and residue then any WoodGlo option would work for your floor.  Narrowing down an option depends on the amount of protection you want on your flooring.  We have two levels when it comes to determining WoodGlo products.  Level 1 is a basic professional standard clean.  Level 2 provides a deeper cleaning with a glossier finish and long lasting protection for your hardwood.
