Wood Floor Cleaning
Hardwood and laminated floors are beautiful aesthetic to the house. It brings a warm beauty to your home. Not only does it give your house an appealing look, but it is also highly recommended for your home's finishing. Your hardwood floor can get easily damaged from moisture, pets, and kids. Coming in contact with the floor is inevitable as it is customary to step on it all the time. There are things you do over time that contribute to the deterioration of your hardwood floor like using cleaning products that leave a lot of residues and not being able to properly "rinse" those products from the wood floor. There are ways to keep them looking the same as the first time, but first, you have to understand how damages can be done on the hardwood floor.
The use of liquid can cause damage to your hardwood or laminate floor, and that is why you need professionals at DFW Steam Cleaning to get the job done for you. Most times, liquid cleaners can cause more problems than you think. The hardwood floor has a limited endurance to wetness, so old school mopping is a little dangerous on hardwood floors and can't be done on laminate. It is advisable to contact us to clean your laminate or hardwood floor as this will help the surface stay intact. As we don't use mops or buckets, we can clean and not use a lot of moisture to clean your wood floors. In fact, our cleaning equipment is Very Low Moisture (VLM), which is a concept in cleaning that simply states you use the minimally viable amount of liquid to effect cleaning and that liquid is not in contact with the surface for an extended amount of time. When the floor is cleaned correctly by us, it will be done safely and we will remove all the old dirty crusted mop water and cleaning reside you have deposited on your floor over time. Your floor will look as good as it was stock, minus any scratches of course. Cleaning will not in and of itself remove scratches. Sometimes we can remove scuffs that are in the polyurethane coating on the wood. Latex, rug pads can also cause a lot of damage to the floor. Latex rug pads can disintegrate and oxidize and almost stay glued to the floor, and the rubber back can make the hardwood floor dull. This also depends on the kind of rug pad as most of them can leave marks on the surface of your hardwood floor.
Shoes can damage the hardwood floor, the sole of the shoes or high heels can leave dents on the floor. Wearing wet shoes or boots can make the hardwood floor wet which if not cleaned, can leave the floor moist. When the floor is sticky, your cleaning pad will not easily move across the floor due to an increase in the friction coefficient. This can be unhygienic to your health and that of the kids or pets because a floor with sticky residue will act as a trap for other particles and will start to build up. It would help if you always left damp shoes outside the house to avoid tracking in moisture. The kids or pets can also spill liquid on the floor, and this can also leave a water patch on the hardwood floor if not cleaned. Pets can also damage the floor with their nails; it's advisable to keep your pet's nails trimmed so the nails don't scratch the hardwood floor with their overgrown nails. Some toys being rolled over the floor can cause damage to it.
