Why Should I Use a Professional Floor Cleaning Service?
If you are thinking about whether or not to hire a professional to come and clean your floors, here are a few things to consider about the benefits of having your wood floors cleaned.
- Nothing makes wood floors shine in your Ponte Vedra Beach home more than a professional cleaning service.
- Professional wood floor cleaners in Ponte Vedra Beach have the necessary tools and equipment to make the most of a floor cleaning job. They can get a deeper clean than would be possible with regular home cleaning techniques.

Will My Floors Need to Be Sanded First?
Unless your hardwood floor has extensive damage or buildup, sanding is usually not necessary. In some cases, special considerations may be necessary if floors were treated with paste or acrylic waxes or acrylic polishes.
Sanding your floors gives you the highest chances of your wood floors looking brand new when we finish cleaning them.In these cases, we recommend that you sand your hardwood floors before we arrive to clean them.
If your wood floors have any of these features, you should consider sanding them before having them cleaned:
- Exposed wood is showing through your floor’s finish coat
- Deep scratches, cracks, or gaps
- Variations in the stain color
- Stains from pets discolor the wood
By sanding your floors before our Ponte Vedra Beach cleaning team arrives, it’ll be easier for us to make your floors look brand new again.
Do I Need to Restore My Hardwood Floors Before Your Team Cleans Them?
A majority of the homes’ floors that we clean don’t require restoration. But if your house is older and your floors are severely damaged, it’s a good idea to restore them before we clean them.
By doing this, you’ll ensure that you’ll be able to enjoy your new and freshly cleaned hardwood floors. If you don’t restore them, the cleaning could do more damage than good by allowing excess moisture to seep into cracks and gaps which could lead to mold.
What Is the Best Way to Regularly Maintain My Wood Floor?
Some simple, low-maintenance cleaning tips and tricks will keep your floors in tip-top shape and help you to avoid unnecessary damage. Here are our most important hints for maintaining your hardwood floors:
Once a day, sweep your floors to keep them free of soil, dust, and debris that can become embedded in the grains of your wood floor. High-traffic areas need the most attention and should be swept free of debris once a day.
Under and around the islands or cabinetry is a magnet for dust, so don’t forget to sweep in these corners and crevices. Areas that have less traffic, like under the furniture or in rooms that are used less often, can be swept less often.
Spot sweeping after meals, food preparation, or visitors can go a long way toward maintaining the beauty of a wood floor and make your chores much lighter on cleaning days. Living in a beautiful area like Ponte Vedra Beach is sure to bring some sand to your floors, so sweep up!
Run a mop over the floor weekly with a cleaner that is designed for wood floors. This is a biggie: do not use soaps, abrasives, disinfectants, or cleaners that are not specifically formulated for cleaning woods. The wood structure is often porous, so it is able to be infiltrated by liquids and can be damaged by harsh chemicals and ruin a floor faster than you can imagine.
Invest in a soft mop, keeping your mopping gentle to avoid scratching the wood with the attachment mechanism. Cloth mops are your best bet, and use caution not to puddle the water to avoid water stains and warp.
Don’t overwet your floor when you are cleaning at home. Cover the floor, but don’t drown it with so much liquid that it pools or takes a long time to dry. Moisture is the number one enemy of wood flooring, so dampness is the key when using your mop.
Clean the stairs and corners of your wood floor by hand when necessary. Just use the same cleaning solution, and get on your hands and knees with a soft cloth. It’s not necessary to do this very often, but it works wonders when you do and goes a long way in preventing damage due to moisture.
Add a quality finish to the wood to protect the floor. Most mass-marketed floor finishes will leave a waxy look to your wood flooring and tend to peel very quickly. For this reason, it’s probably a better idea to invest in professional service from First Coast Home Pros to clean and finish your floors.
Whether you have bamboo, pine, oak, or maple floors, we can clean them and restore their lustrous beauty. Our wood floor cleaning experts understand how to get your floors sparkling clean, providing your Ponte Vedra Beach home with a gleaming wood floor that you will love.
