We’re the team to call if you need wood floor cleaning in Palm Valley, FL. All of our work is backed by a satisfaction guarantee and performed by licensed, insured, and bonded professionals. You can trust us to keep your floors in great condition. Here’s what we’ll do when we come to your home.
The Consultation and Estimate
A member of our team will come to your home to check the condition of your floors, measure the space, and give you an estimate of the time and cost. We give up-front estimates with no hidden fees. What you hear is what you get!
We’ll also tell you if your hardwood floor needs more attention than what our wood floor cleaning service provides. If we notice any of the following, you may need a full refinishing job first before we clean the floor:
- Pet stains that penetrated the wood
- Exposed bare wood
- Deep cracks, dents, or scratches
- Wood darkening due to paste wax, acrylic wax, or an acrylic floor polish
Regular sweeping and mopping plus occasional professional cleaning will keep your floors lasting a long time, but all wood floors will need refinishing sometime. If we think it’s time, we’ll say so and explain why.
The Two-Step Cleaning Process
Most wood floor cleaning jobs take a single day, though larger homes with a lot of flooring may take longer. After moving the furniture off the floor, we start our cleaning with a low-moisture high-alkaline solution buffed into the floor. This solution attacks dirt and grime that household cleaners can’t reach.
Once all the dirt is up, we use an alcohol solution to neutralize the first cleaner and dissolve any leftover dirt. Deep cleaning requires the right chemicals, along with heat, agitation, and time to do the job. Also, the alcohol rinse dries quickly off your floor.
At this point, the floor is cleaned, but there is an optional step that we can do to preserve your floor even better. Our Palm Valley wood floor cleaning team can add a fresh coat of polyurethane to protect against water damage and wear and tear. Adding this can extend the time between refinishing projects.
About Our Polyurethane Service
Polyurethane coats your wood floor in a thin layer of hard plastic to make it water-resistant. First Coast Home Pros only uses water-based polyurethane products. There are good reasons we avoid older oil-based products.
First, they’re far greener. Oil-based polyurethane has high levels of volatile organic compounds. These can affect the health of your family and pets, and they take a long time to leave your home. Also, water-based polyurethane dries much faster. After six hours, you can walk on it.
The latest polyurethane products use nanotechnology to create a more durable surface. We can also match the sheen on your current floor, anywhere from satin to full gloss. Adding another polyurethane top coat is a great addition to your wood floor cleaning project.
Can You Clean Rugs as Well?
A common addition to a wood floor is a large area rug. It’s a comfortable surface for feet, and it adds some insulation. Chances are, if your floor is dirty, your rugs could also be cleaned, and our Palm Valley floor cleaners can tackle this job.
If you choose to clean your rug, you should know this tip: never use a steam cleaner on a rug with a hardwood floor.
The heat from the steam cleaner can penetrate through the rug and into the wood. You can damage the finish or even warp the wood.
Wood Floor Cleaning and Allergies
A common reason to switch from carpet to a hardwood floor is removing allergens from the home. Dust mites, pollen, and pet dander get trapped in carpet fibers. On a wood floor, they have few places to go.
Regular sweeping and mopping will take care of a lot of these, but sometimes these allergens can get caught in the cracks between the boards where your mop can’t reach. If you suffer from home allergies and they’re getting worse despite having a wood floor, it’s time to call us for a cleaning.
Our cleaning method will penetrate those cracks to lift out accumulated allergens and get them out of your home. Then, with a seal coat on top, it will make it much harder for future allergens to get trapped in your floor. You’ll be able to breathe much easier!
