A thorough cleaning by a professional like Interior Care is usually all you need to get your hardwoods looking new again. We can remove soiling and scuffing.

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.

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.
