Professional Hardwood Floor Steam Cleaning vs. doing it Yourself

Owning a home comes with quite a few responsibilities. For this reason, many homeowners learn several abilities and skills over the years. You take pride in handling much of your tasks and chores in a DIY manner. 

You know it’s time to clean your hardwood floors. Is this something you can handle on your own or should you hire professional hardwood floor cleaners? In order to answer that question, let’s look at a few facts:

You can accidentally do a lot of damage to your floors.

Some steam cleaners are marketed as being okay for hardwood, but these claims should be viewed very cautiously. Hardwood is naturally a very absorbent material, and exposure to water can cause it to warp, plump, twist, and even grow mold. A steam cleaner uses water heated to a very hot vapor to clean and disinfect the surface of a floor. Product literature on these machines is careful to note, in small font, that your floors must be properly sealed for the tools to be safe on them. Is yours? If it is not, or you don’t know, you’re risking serious damage to your hardwood floors.

Steam can get into the seams.

Even if the wood itself is perfectly sealed against moisture penetration, the seams between the planks can be vulnerable. This allows moisture to penetrate deep down and attack your floor from below

You could void your warranty.

Most hardwood flooring will come with a warranty, as this is quite a big investment. This guarantees its replacement if the material fails due to structural problems. These warranties often come with explicit conditions about which acts will void their protection. Ruining your floor by attempting to steam clean it on your own is one of them!

Professionals know exactly what they’re doing.

Your investment in your hardwood floors is too big to take a chance. Green Steam Carpet Cleaners uses a professional high speed rotating brush machine. We also use a special preservation finish, applied to protect the original finish and keep your floors in great shape for generations to come. 

Green Steam Carpet Cleaners now offers a hardwood floor cleaning service that can prolong the life and restore the shine to your floors. Your hardwood floors can last multiple generations when they are properly maintained and preserved. Our hardwood floor cleaning and preservation system can do just that! Using our wood floor care commercial grade cleaners, we will deep clean your floor and apply a preservation finish that will maintain the integrity and protect your original finish. This process removes dirt, dust, oil and other contaminants that are known to weaken wood flooring. This eventually led to costly repairs. 

The kind of results you can expect from a professional floor cleaning service cannot be matched by cleaning your floors yourself. Our 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.
