Are you considering specialty cleaning for your hardwood but are concerned about the process? You can rest easy once you know what to expect. Here’s a quick guide to the process for polishing hardwood:
Hardwood floor cleaning and polishing is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Each floor and every type of wood needs different types of attention. Evaluation helps to identify the finish, the sealant, the wood and grain of the floor, and any other factors that are important to doing the job right.
Cleaning your floors is critical to successful polishing. Using gentle cleaners to eliminate dust, dirt, and grime on your floors is the best way to prep the surface for getting a great shine. It’s also the best way to avoid damaging the floors by clearing away any abrasive particles first.
It’s important to use the right, gentle tools when polishing hardwood. First the floor is buffed, then it’s waxed, and then finally it gets polished to bring out the shine and make your floor look like new.
Does your floor have problem areas? If you have any discoloration, scratches, or scuffs in your floor, detailing after polishing can address those areas. This helps your whole floor look great while keeping a consistent shine throughout your home.
Cleaning your floors regularly is important to keeping them looking great. But professional cleaning and polishing is the best way to keep them looking like new, at the same time you extend the life of your hardwood.
