Why Should I Have My Wood Floors Professionally Cleaned?
Even if you follow wood floor cleaning tips and sweep and mop them regularly, they’ll eventually show scuff marks, scrapes, and scratches from decades of daily punishment. Yet, the cost to replace or refinish your hardwood floors can be expensive, not to mention disruptive to your household or business.
A more cost-effective solution is to call in the wood floor cleaning professionals at Floor Doctors. Our hardwood floor specialists know the right way to clean your floors and get them shining like new again.

How Do You Clean Wood Floors?
Our wood floor cleaning system is a two-step process that aggressively clears away dirt, bacteria, grease, hair, dust, and built-up residue. Our method adds beauty to your tired looking floors and brings back their lost luster:
- First, we use a low moisture cleaning process with an aggressive high-alkaline wood floor cleaner.
- Then, we use an alcohol-based cleaner that’s on the middle of the pH scale to neutralize your floor.
Our hardwood floor cleaning process can be performed as a stand-alone maintenance procedure or completed in preparation for a finish coat. Edges are hand scrubbed, as are stairs.
Can a Finish Coat Get My Wood Floors to Shine Again?
Once we’ve completed our cleaning service, have us apply a finish coat to restore a uniform luster to your floor. Our urethane finish can be applied in either a satin or gloss sheen, depending on how shiny you want the finish to be.
The refinisher maintenance coating is a water-based polyurethane, which remains on the outer layer of wood to form a protective barrier against moisture. Water-based polyurethane has numerous advantages to outdated oil-based varnishes:
- Water-based urethane dries and cures quickly, which minimizes any inconvenience to you. You’ll be able to walk on your floors again within six hours.
- It’s also a low volatile organic compound (VOC) finish, meaning it’s less harmful, has fewer unpleasant fumes, and is a “greener” choice for your flooring.
- Innovative nanotechnology particles make this finish one of the most durable coatings for wood flooring protection.
- Your floors will become low maintenance and easy to clean with your regular sweeping and mopping regimen.
Will I Need to Have My Wood Floors Restored First?
In most cases, we do not need you to sand or refinish your wood floors before we clean them. Though periodically older floors, or those that have suffered extensive abuse, may require restoration in advance. For example, your floors may need to be sanded first if:
- You have exposed bare wood showing through the finish.
- There are variations in the color of the stain.
- There are deep cracks, scratches, or indentations.
- Pet stains have discolored the wood.
Additionally, special considerations may be needed when wood floors have been maintained using paste wax, acrylic wax, or acrylic floor polish.
