Dear Chintan: I am assuming you are talking about hardwood flooring and not laminate flooring. For hardwood flooring, you should not take risks while cleaning. Whatever method you choose to adopt after reading this post, do try it over a less visible small area first.
For routine cleaning use general tap water or filter water which is ph-neutral i.e. neither acidic nor alkaline. For grease and dirt, use alkaline water i.e. with soap, detergent or baking soda dissolved in water. For other deposits, use acidic water such as white vinegar in water. Do not use ammonia, bleach, harsh cleaners or residue leaving cleaners like oil, wax etc. Wipe the floor absolutely dry afterwards.

In case your floor is very old, only use a cleaning spirit as the surface coating for surface-sealing may not be water and stain resistant.
I hope it helps.
