Hardwood Floor Cleaning in Phoenix, AZ
Part of your weekly grind might include cleaning your hardwood floors. They may look clean, but are they really? In reality, no routine cleaning will get your hardwood floors as clean as you might imagine. While sweeping and mopping your floors definitely helps, the only way to get them as clean as the day they were installed, is to have your hardwood floors professionally cleaned. Blackhawk Floors in Phoenix, AZ, specializes in hardwood flooring and all of the care aspects it requires.
Reasons to Get Professional Hardwood Floor Cleaning
Deep cleaning carpet and rugs isn’t an uncommon idea. Most of us accept the need for deep cleaning carpets without much question. Why should wood be any different? Over time, your hardwood floors accumulate oils, grime, dust, and grit that can’t be cleaned with the standard mop and bucket. Most of this dirt and grime is caught in the natural textures and fine ripples of the wood, which can’t be touched by routine cleanings, no matter how thorough you are. While it’s not necessarily distinctly visible to the naked eye, it does make the clean, shiny, new appearance of your floors diminish, causing it to look waxy, dull, or even scuffed.
Getting a deep, professional hardwood floor cleaning can make all the difference in the appearance of your floors. Our team will be detailed, thorough, and efficient in their cleaning, making sure to get into every crevice. We use state-of-the-art equipment and technology to give your floors the deepest clean possible without harming them. You’ll be stunned at how much better your floors will look after a deep wood floor cleaning. As an extra bonus, it’s a much more affordable alternative to having your floors recoated or refinished.
Do’s and Don’ts After a Deep Clean
A deep clean is only as good as the aftercare it gets. Taking great care of your floors after your cleaning will make sure the effort and money don’t go to waste after a few weeks.
Some essential things to do to keep your wood floors shining after a deep clean, include wiping up any spills immediately, keeping animal nails trimmed and filed, and using interior and exterior doormats at all entrances to your home. Rugs and runners are also great ways to prevent damage when used in front of kitchen sinks and the areas of your home that get the most traffic. Use soft pads under the legs of furniture and try not to scoot furniture across your floor. Limiting the amount of direct sunlight that reaches your floors will also help keep them from fading.
Avoiding certain habits and products can keep your floors looking new, too. We recommend staying away from cleaners that use ammonia, wax, bleach, oil, vinegar, acrylic finishes, or detergents as these may damage the finish and wood. Don’t let water stand on your floors for any timespan, or it can cause discoloration and damage. You should also be careful about the floor mats you use because if the backing of the mat isn’t breathable, it can trap moisture above the floor and lead to discoloration.
