Hardwood Floor Cleaning

Hardwood Floor Cleaning

When time and use take their toll, we help return the glow.

Beautiful hardwood floors can be on the most impressive features of your home. However, everyday wear and tear that can occur from pets, spills, traffic, high heel shoes and furniture can gradually dull the appearance of your wood floors.

Why refinish or replace your wood floors when we can revive them?

Restoring your floors may be a good option without breaking the bank on expensive sanding and refinishing. Having your hardwood floors professionally cleaned is a less costly alternative. Our professionals at ServiceMaster Quality Cleaning know your hardwood floors can look new longer through our WoodGlo Cleaning System which provides a protective finish against everyday damage that can occur. The key is to keep them in good shape before you have to go through the time, expense, and inconvenience of sanding and refinishing.

Which WoodGlo solution is right for you?

Both WoodGlo options safely, yet aggressively, remove dirt, debris, grease, hair, soil, dust, built-up residue, and contaminants left behind from other cleaning products trapped in your floors. But the right solution for you depends on the level of protection you desire for you floors.

Wood Floor Care Tips:

Protecting your floors
-Use doormats at all exterior entrances and exits to trap sand and grit before it gets into your home and scratches the floor. Ground-in dirt is what makes floors look dirty and dull and can also create small scratches and flaws in the finish.

-Use area rugs on high traffic pathways, particularly in pivot areas like the ends of steps and doorways. Avoid using rugs that have rubber backs as this does not allow for proper ventilation.

-Utilize furniture protectors under furniture that will be moved regularly, like dining room chairs. Furniture can scratch and dent wood flooring.

Cleaning your floors
-No matter what type of wood floors you have, the best way to care for them on a daily basis is through sweeping or vacuuming with soft bristles. Some vacuums have a non-carpet setting that works well on bare, hard-surface floors.

-Standing water can damage wood floors. Be sure to clean up spills immediately.
-A quick dry mopping or vacuuming – anywhere from daily to weekly depending on usage – will help maintain your floors.

-Do not wet mop your wood floor; it can harm the finish. Never use wax, oil soap or other household cleaners on your wood floor. They can dull the finish and make refinishing more difficult. We suggest using our WoodGlo Neutral Cleaner on a weekly basis as needed with a microfiber flat mop. Contact your local ServiceMaster Clean professional for more information on this product.

Maintaining your floors
-Do not walk on your wood floors in shoes with high heels and be sure to keep the nails of your pets trimmed to prevent scratches to your floors.

-Maintain a consistent humidity level. Humidity can cause wood floors to swell, crack, shrink or create gaps.
-Check for wear periodically and do not wait until wood floors show extreme wear and tear before you take action. Call us to give your wood floors the cleaning and protection they need to avoid having them fully sanded and refinished, which is an expensive and time-consuming process.

-Protect the finish and keep your floor as clean as possible. Lingering soil can act like sand paper on your beautiful floor if it is not regularly swept or vacuumed. Dirt and soil can cause scratches in your wood floor’s finish as well as dull the sheen on the floor.
