Wood Floor Care
Cleaning & Polishing Wooden Floors
The easiest floors to keep clean are the ones sealed with lacquer; they don't require much maintenance and their finish lasts for years. If your floors are clean, they will make your house look more spacious, livelier and more beautiful. Depending on the particular type of your wooden floors, maintenance does not differ, but some special finishes will need extra care while stains are removed.
Polishing or Floor Sanding?
Our Clean & Polish service is a maintenance service for lacquered floors. It is not a solution for floors, which have their finish worn out already, but a preventative service which will prolong the life of existing finish and add one or two extra years of use. If your floors have noticeable wearing or dullness in places, which is usually an indication of sealant wearing, the service your floors will require will be floor sanding.

It is very important to remove the dirt from your hardwood floors, because they are the major reason behind floors getting scratched and scoured. You also need to make sure the hardwood floor sealing coat is intact, because the water-based solution may go through the very worn patches and damage the floor.
All floors are prone to stains, no matter if they are carpeted or hardwood. The best tool for removing stains is a very fine steel wool. Stains can be removed with the help of small amount of alcohol from clean hardwood floors, followed by polishing and buffing. The only way to get rid of persisting stains is to have your floor sanded.
