Hardwood Floor Cleaning

Hardwood Floor Cleaning

Stanley Steemer, one of the most reliable names in carpet cleaning, also offers hardwood floor cleaning with amazing results. A mop reaches only surface level dirt, and more often than not just pushes it around. Stanley Steemer’s specialized and thorough hardwood floor cleaning methods will extract the dirt from deep inside your floors and remove it entirely—unlike mopping, which leaves behind filthy residue.

Here’s a look into the Stanley Steemer hardwood floor cleaning process: we begin by vacuuming your floors to remove any dust, pet hair and other loose debris. Once that’s out of the way, we use our high-speed rotary scrubber and special pH balanced solution to loosen impacted dirt and bring it to the surface. Our equipment is designed to be gentle, so that it removes dirt without damaging or scarring your hardwood floors.

Finally, we use powerful vacuum suction technology to pull the loosened dirt out of your floors. This step is what differentiates a Stanley Steemer cleaning from mopping or other common methods of cleaning hardwood floors. No matter how thorough you are, conventional mops leave dirt behind, because a mop is not absorbent enough to capture all the dirty water, leaving a residue which dries onto the wood. A Stanley Steemer hardwood floor cleaning will leave you with unparalleled results, and you’ll be amazed at how much dirt you didn’t know was trapped deep within the crevices of your floorboards.

Our technicians finish up the job with a detailed hand cleaning, just to make sure that the hard to reach areas get the attention that they deserve. Then, they use a microfiber cloth to absorb any remaining moisture. We offer a special coating for hardwood floors that will add another layer of shine and protection and will keep your floors looking great for a long time.

FAQ

Q: What types of cleaner do you use on hardwood?
A: We first use an alkaline cleaning solution combined with a high-speed rotary brush that effectively cleans and extracts dirt and debris from deep within the cracks and crevices of the floors. Technicians use squeegees and powerful vacuums to trap and remove any leftover dirt and cleaning solution. This process is followed by the application of a neutral cleaner that restores the pH balance and puts the shine back into your floors.
Q: How can I preserve my hardwood floors after they are cleaned?
A: After your floors are cleaned, Stanley Steemer can apply a fast-drying maintenance coat that extends the life of your floors while preserving their cleanliness and shine.
Q: How often should hardwood floors be professionally cleaned?
A: Hardwood floors should be professionally cleaned every six months to one year. The frequency of professional cleanings varies and depends on the volume of traffic your floors receive, in addition to other factors (whether you have pets, asthma or allergies, etc.).
Q: What’s the best way to keep hardwood floors clean in between professional cleanings?
A: To maintain your hardwood floors, follow these guidelines: vacuum or sweep them regularly (at least a few times a week but ideally once a day), immediately clean up any spills (including water), place rugs or mats in high-traffic areas and keep the temperature and humidity levels in your home consistent to avoid swelling or shrinking.
Q: Will I need to air out the rooms that I have cleaned?
A: All of the hardwood floor cleaners we use are non-toxic and low-odor, so you won’t have to worry about any lingering odors or having to ventilate any areas of your home. Stanley Steemer is also certified allergy and asthma-friendly, ensuring our cleaning methods are safe and remove more dust and allergens than other cleaners.
