Cleaning hardwood floors is a job that at first sight seems a piece of cake. Until you discover it isn’t. By cleaning floors on your own or hiring someone who is not a specialist to do it, you risk deteriorating the wood and wasting your money in vain.
Hardwood floors maintenance issues Hardwood floors can last a lifetime if properly maintained, because they are manufactured from true wood. Cleaning floors the right way ensures that the wood’s quality is not affected.
What are the risks of cleaning hardwood floors without having the necessary knowledge? A professional company that specializes in cleaning floors will have a proper “action plan” for each project. Not a single project begins with the actual process of cleaning hardwood floors.
Here are the steps to be taken before the actual cleaning process:
- Floor inspection using special inspection tools – in case problems are identified, the hardwood floor cleaning company will advise on recommended repairs
- Identifying job-site problems (these include: gaps, dents, buckling, unevenness of floor, etc.) and finish problems (chipping, alligatoring, uneven sheen levels, stains, peeling, pin holes, etc.)
Now, about the risks. You cannot start cleaning floors if the floor at cause is uneven or is peeling. Maintenance refers to hardwood floors soft cleaning and/or staining, refinishing. Without the proper expertise you cannot determine if your hardwood floor needs simple repainting to get rid of stains, or if it needs complete refinishing.
So by taking over a project such as cleaning hardwood floors, you can actually damage the floor to the extent where they can no longer be repaired. So instead of saving money, as you initially hoped, you are now actually spending more money to fix the floor.
