A1A Extreme Green Cleaning services provide you with the best looking floors!

The beauty of having hardwood floors is the elegant combination of rustic and luxurious added to any home. Cleaning hardwood floors can be very touchy; anyone with them in their home knows that. Wood is porous and as the finish wears away with age, spills and dirt can cause irreparable damage.

This takes specific care to ensure that hardwood floors are looking as good as they did when they were installed. As with most other specialty flooring, regular professional maintenance is a necessity in preserving the quality of your hardwood floors. Not every professional tile floor cleaning company has the know-how to truly give hardwood floors the attention they need in order to preserve their lifetime. A1A Extreme Green Cleaning excels in cleaning and treating hardwood floors in Boca Raton. A1A Extreme Green Cleaning uses a special cleaner and scrub pad to remove all dirt and stains and a state of the art sealant that will keep your hardwood floors shining for as long as you or your family owns your home.

When it comes to cleaning and maintaining your hardwood floors yourself there are many things to keep in mind in order to fully preserve the quality of your floors. It is imperative to keep in mind that hardwood floors do not cope well with moisture. It is important to wipe up any spills immediately or they may set. As long as it is possible you should not apply water or any liquids directly on the floor as this can highly damage the wood. If you can, use a dry towel to wipe away muck or dirt or a slightly damp towel immediately wiping dry afterwards. The same applies if you want to mop your floors. Use a dry mop or a slightly damp one being sure to wipe completely dry afterwards. Sweep hardwood floors with a soft bristle broom and you may vacuum with a soft brush attachment as well if this if preferred.

When using cleaners on your hardwood floors be sure to use ones that are specifically designed for hardwood floors or this may cause damage. Even products that list hardwood as one of the possible surfaces should be tested in an inconspicuous area first to ensure it causes no damage. Oil soaps like body soaps can leave a residue on the floor that is very difficult to remove; wax based cleaners can cause gunk in areas and discolor your floors. Most importantly use should never use any abrasives to clean your hardwood floors as this will severely damage the protective coating causing there to be bare wood.
