A thorough cleaning by a professional like Interior Care is usually all you need to get your hardwoods looking new again. We can remove dirt, repair small scratches and re-oil to restore the wood’s original luster.

Our process begins with a thorough vacuuming, before our technicians use advanced equipment to remove grime and build up. We then offer two floor finishes: satin or high-gloss polyurethane. This is applied after your floors are resurfaced.

Our Renewal Service is recommended for heavily scratched and damaged floors. This is a more affordable alternative to floor refinishing. Otherwise, our simple Repair Service will fix scratches, dents, and water and mould, as well as damage including buckling, gaps, cups, or twisting.

Regular Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is the first step:

  • Place high-quality floor mats and area rugs near outside entrances to prevent dirt, sand and other unwanted substances from being tracked onto the flooring.
  • Attach felt floor protectors on movable furniture, including chairs, tables and sofas that sit directly on the floor.

Here’s the maintenance that you should be doing ongoing:

  • Regularly vacuum or dust to prevent any abrasive buildup that can scratch the finish.
  • Wipe up spills and spots immediately with a damp cloth.
  • Every 3 to 4 months, mop your floor with oil refresher to reintroduce a small amount of oil, and extend the time before a full re-oiling becomes necessary.
  • Do not use ammonia or oil-based wax, polish, dust treatment chemicals, abrasive cleaners, or furniture cleaners to clean your floor.
  • Do not wet mop the floor, as excess moisture may cause wood damage.
