Can you clean Hardwood Floors?

Updated: May 5

There are many times a home owner should consider having a professional deep cleaning of their wood floors. Here are just a couple.


Selling your home


Hardwood floors are a significant investment for any home owner. Either the investment was made but the original home owner at the time the home was built, or as an upgrade later on. Protecting that investment through professional cleaning of the hardwood floors only makes sense.


When you are considering Selling a home, especially in the Hillsboro and Beaverton Oregon area, you want to get the highest offer possible. If you've kept up on cleaning all the floors in your home (carpet, tile, laminate, hardwood) it reduces the amount of action items you'll need to address before you list the home.Most buyers want to have a turn key property, meaning there are no repairs or updates needed after purchase.


Regular Home Maintenance


From the roof to the foundation, there are many areas of your home that require regular attention to help avoid larger expenses down the road. When you have professional hardwood cleaning done on your hardwood flooring it helps to avoid the need to fully refinish them down the line.


We all know that life happens and there are seasons in life that having your hardwood floors serviced may not have been a priority. If you do not have major issues in your floor and there's any chance you will want to sell your home in the next 2-5 years, scheduling a deep cleaning is well worth the relatively small investment compared to a full refinishing.



Cleaning vs. refinishing your floors. What is the difference?


A professional deep Cleaning if your hardwood floors will get deep into the cracks and crevices to remove the dirt and debris that normal sweeping and mopping is unable to get to. It evens out layers of coating that will have worn unevenly from normal walking patterns through your house. You can also opt to having a new coating of protectant added to the floors at the same time, which we highly recommend.


Refinishing your floors will be a more in depth and more expensive investment that includes sanding down the floors, filling in chips or divots and multiple coats to seal and protect the newly exposed surfaces.
