HARDWOOD FLOORS DONE RIGHT

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 add 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. Interior Care is proud to use WOCA Fine Natural Oil Finishes.

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.

WOCA Fine Oil Finishes

Produced by Woodcare of Denmark (WOCA), this product is the leading environmentally responsible and durable wood finish. It contains no artificial colour pigments or preservatives. WOCA products meet or exceed North American standards for volatile organic compounds.

WOCA is easy to apply and quickly penetrates wood. When it hardens, it forms a durable surface that bonds to floor. This helps the wood absorb normal wear, and protect against small scratches and indentations. The oil finish still lets the wood breathe through its surface.

Normal cleaning is easy using WOCA soap by simply mixing it with warm water and mopping periodically. WOCA soap contains soy and coconut fats, which dry as an invisible film on the surface to give the floor added protection.

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 moveable furniture, including chairs, tables and sofas that sit directly on the floor.
  • If you have wood flooring in your kitchen, place a throw rug with a soft or felt backing in front of the sink area to catch spills and splashes.
  • Attach felt floor protectors on moveable furniture, including chairs, tables, sofas, etc. that sit directly on the floor.
  • Keep pet nails trimmed and filed in order to minimize excessive wear.

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.
