The Best Wood Floor Cleaning in Vancouver WA
More than 150 years ago, almost everyone had hardwood floors. If they didn’t, they probably had dirt floors (which are hard to keep clean). While tiles, bricks, and other materials were certainly options, trees were readily available and wood was easy to work with.
Of course, wood flooring eventually lost some of its popularity as carpet, tiles, and even linoleum became cheaper and easier to access. Hardwood floors were eventually covered up in older homes to go with the styles of the time. They weren’t removed, however: those boards were used as underlayment so the new flooring had something to be attached to.
Wood Floor Rebirth
As remodeling became more popular over the past 30 years or so, the beauty of wood floors became rediscovered. Carpet corners were pulled up to see if hardwood underneath would be revealed. Refinished, hardwood floors that were over a century old were returned to their former glory.
In fact, if there was any damage to the floor over the decades, it added an extra patina of sorts. Original hardwoods held a little more cache, and if properly protected, the finished hardwood would be protected, even in high traffic areas.
Keeping Wood Floors Clean
One of the appeals of wood flooring is how easy it is to keep the surface clean. A broom or dust mop or a wet mop and a bucket do fine for light cleaning duties. All are much easier than trying to treat carpet stains. However, even with a regular mop and bucket cleaning, a professional cleaning every so often is recommended to get a true deep clean.
Heaven’s Best Wood Floor Cleaning
There are many different types of wood floors and even more “cleaning” products out there today but know that our wood floor cleaning products and processes are exceptional and will strip away years of buildup to make your floors look great again.
Our cleaning process begins with vacuuming up dust, dirt, and other debris. For heavily soiled floors, we apply an aggressive wood floor cleaning product and scrub the floors using a rotary floor machine or an auto scrubber to remove deep down soil from the grain and crevasse. We then run a microfiber pad over the floors to get up anything that might be left behind leaving the floor extremely clean and dry in minutes.
The last step is to use a rotary floor machine and specially designed pad to polish your floor, restoring the natural shine and luster of its factory finish. With ten times more cleaning power than a mop and bucket, our process will leave your hardwoods clean deep down and looking great.
With honest to goodness four-season weather, your wood floors get filthy. Tracking in dirt from soccer practice, grime from gardening, and mud from taking the dog on a walk during a rainstorm will take its toll after a while. But Heaven’s Best will bring the shine back in a single visit.
