While solid is always the traditional tongue and groove/nail down, engineered wood floors can also be stapled, glued, or floating. With a floating floor, the pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor without nails or glue. Most subfloors are fine, even concrete, and they need to be clear, dry, and level. Professionals love the floating floor because it's fast and uncomplicated; that, in turn, will be less expensive for you.
Maintenance is similar to solid wood floors or any other flooring, for that matter. Sweep with a soft broom and damp mop periodically; if you polish, be sure it's wholly wiped dry, so no liquid lingers. Strategically put mats and entrances in front of sinks; keep pet nails trimmed, and use protective furniture pads to avoid scratching.
