Professional Wood Floor Cleaning

Keeping your wooden floor in beautiful condition requires regular cleaning, however even with regular upkeep hardwood can start to show signs of wear and tear. A deep clean is one of the best ways to restore your floors to their natural finish, stain and shine without fitting entirely new floorboards.

Quicksand Flooring is now offering a professional hardwood floor cleaning service using specialist machinery to clean and/or strip pre-oiled timber floors and prepare them for re-oiling. This step completely eliminates the need for sanding a floor which can hugely reduce the level of disruption and mess caused, particularly in commercial properties where hardwood floor spans a vast surface area.

Why do you need a professional wood floor cleaning service

Oil treatments give wooden flooring a stunning finish that shows off the beauty and warmth of the natural wood. Over time though, and especially in areas of high traffic, this oil can wear off, leaving hardwood floors susceptible to damage from dust, pet claws and liquid spillages that are allowed to soak in. Regular professional cleaning and re-oiling stops your floorboards from taking the weight of sustained wear and tear, keeping them shining and scratch-free.

What does our wood floor cleaning involve?

The Kaercher scrubbing machine works by applying a solution to the wooden floor, before scrubbing the oil away, leaving the floor bare and clean, ready to be re-oiled. This means your flooring can be sustained for longer, keeping its natural finish while being sealed against any irritants or dirt. Professional floor cleaning in this manner also means no water is left behind, reducing the risk of your floorboards swelling or bloating.

Useful especially for commercial properties that require updates to their flooring to be made quickly, professional cleaning removes the more time-consuming task of sanding floorboards. Instead, deep scrubbing lifts oil away from the surface of each floorboard, simultaneously drying them to ensure your floors are perfectly prepared to be re-oiled. Quicksand Flooring is able to carry out all services outside of working hours, to ensure your floorboards are thoroughly protected without disrupting your working day.

Professional cleaning gives your wooden floorboards a new lease of life, whether it is pre-oiled or not. Many homeowners and commercial properties choose to oil their floorboards because of the natural warmth and shine the process brings to hardwood, as well as scuff resistance and water repellent qualities.
Done correctly, DIY floor cleaning with a mop and hardwood floor cleaner can increase the longevity of your wooden floorboards. However, professional cleaning is always recommended to reduce the risk of water damage or scratches to your hardwood floor.
You should sweep your floors a few times a week to avoid dust particles and bacteria from building up. A professional clean should be carried out yearly, or every six months in high traffic areas, to keep your floorboards nourished, shiny and dirt-free.
Because steam cleaning uses heat and water to extract dirt, it is not recommended for wooden floors. Hardwood floorboards suck up water and moisture, causing each floorboard to swell and change shape. Instead, cleaning with professional scrubbing leaves your floors completely dry and dirt-free, without the worry of water damage.
Every hardwood floor differs in stain, condition and type of wood, and so our professional cleaning service requires bespoke pricing. Please get in touch to find out more about our pricing structure.
