Using our Wood Floor Care commercial grade cleaners will deep clean your floor and apply a preservation finish that will maintain the integrity and protect your original finish.

This process removes soils and grit that is impossible to remove with products available to you. Your floor will be renewed and ready for use in a matter of hours with no messy sanding and the inconvenience that goes along with it.
The Preservation Finish
Our preservation finish is a satin finish as most original finishes are it is less likely to show scuffs and micro scratches as it wears.
What to expect?
As your professional, we are trained and prepared to:
1.) Deep clean and prep your current floor finish to receive a new preservation finish. We use a professional high speed rotating brush machine to lay down a specialty cleaner, agitate it and then bring it direct back up with squeegees and a vacuum. This leave the floor dry.
2.) Rinse and neutralize to bring up any remaining residue. This is accomplished with our unique hardwood floor cleaners. The floor is now squeaky clean and ready for the next step.
3.) Application of preservation finish. This finish will be your “wear” finish, applied to protect the original finish and keep your floors in great shape for generations to come. This finish is a modified factory finish designed to bind to original urethane, and aluminum oxide based coatings. A thin but durable preservation coating is applied. Depending on traffic and use, this process can be repeated every year to keep your floors beautiful. It will not yellow or change the color of your original floor.
Will it Remove Scratches and Dents?
Our system does not remove any of the intact, original finish or wood. With a sanding or screening process, where the finish is removed along with some of the surface of the wood, the scratches and dents will be removed, but this is a messy, time consuming and expensive process. Our system will greatly improve the look of your floor. Most micro scratches that dull your floor will be filled and disappear. Heavier scratches are coated over, but may still be visible. Dents in the wood remain but also be less visible. Thousands of customers are enjoying the beauty of their hardwood floor again through application of the preservation system. We are sure you will love the results!
Our job is to bring back the brilliance of your hardwood floor, not create hassle for our customers. Please make sure the floor is vacuumed, swept, or dust mopped. Light furniture and any breakables need to be moved out of the work area. With your input we can decide what needs to be moved from the floor and what can be worked around.
