• How Often Should I Have My Hardwood Floors Cleaned and Polished?


    Learn more about the rules for specialty cleaning for hardwood floors.

    There’s nothing like specialty cleaning in your home to make it sparkle, especially when it comes to your hardwood floors. There are a lot of people who think a quick dry mop and some spot cleaning is all that needs to be done, but professional cleaning is important. How often should it be done? Read on for the info you need.

    Why Professionally Clean Hardwood?

    Hardwood floors have so much warmth and character; they really set the tone for your home. They also see a lot of traffic, dirt, dust and grime, especially if you have kids and pets. Because of this, simple mopping isn’t enough. The things that damage hardwood and cause it to deteriorate quickly are the things that come in on feet and shoes: sand, dirt, salt and rocks. Even a tiny pebble wedged in the tread of a shoe can do some colossal damage to a wood floor.

    What Happens During Specialty Hardwood Cleaning?

    A good cleaning company will evaluate your flooring, clean it with special cleaning agents to pull up the dirt and grime, and then polish it to bring back its original shine and luster. If there are any problem areas, stains, scratches or discoloration, those are also addressed.

    How Often Does It Need to Be Done?

    The truth is there are no rules when it comes to hardwood cleaning. However, having it done regularly will make it look better and will help it last longer. A good rule of thumb is if you have heavy traffic, you need more frequent cleaning. You could put your hardwood floors on the same schedule as your carpet cleaning and then your whole house would look great at the same time.

    No matter how often you have it done, cleaning your hardwood is important for the life of the flooring and to help make your home look and feel great. For specialty cleaning you can rely on, contact our team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners to schedule an appointment today.
