Our Atlanta Maids specialize in Hardwood Floor preservation
Our Atlanta Maids specialize in making available the best equipment and cleaning agents for our clients. For this reason during all of our free quotes that we provide, our clients always have the option to choose which chemicals they prefer. One of the most common inquiries we receive is ‘What chemical is best to keep hardwood floors looking new’?
After many years of operation, we have consulted many different sources to obtain the answer to this question of which hardwood floor cleaners are most effective for long term preservation. Instead of just relying on Home Depot and other retailers in the area we spoke to the expert companies who actually install hardwood floors to obtain the very best advice. What we learned is that there is often times a trade-off when deciding which hardwood floor cleaner to use. Some of the less expensive ones like Murphy’s oil or Orange Glo make the floors look very shiny and new, however, over time there tends to be a chemical film or buildup. This buildup can actually lead to the hardwood floors aging faster than than normal. For this reason we use only the very best chemicals which are PH neutral and safest for the long term preservation of your hardwood floor investment and steer our clients away from the less expensive shorter term fix chemicals.
Our Atlanta Maids have a very high level of knowledge on how to clean hardwood floors so that they do not cause damage, scratch or prematurely age the floors. In addition due to the pigment coloration of the hardwood floors, we have a different set of recommendations on which high end hardwood floor cleaner to use. Often times the presentation will be better with one set of chemicals than another. Generally after a few visits we are able to ascertain which is the very best fit. In the end everybody wins because if/when a home goes up for resale, they are in position to recoup the most possible for their hardwood flooring investment. In addition, all of our cleaning equipment and chemicals are included in the service at no extra charge, including green cleaning.
One important piece of advice we learned in 2012 was that while steam mops looked to be a new, exciting fad for hardwood floor cleaning, it was not recommended to use long term. The primary reason for this was that moisture from the steam mops can get in between hardwood floor cracks and cause the wood to expand. This was something we were not willing to take a chance on, so we made certain not to offer this product in the interest of hardwood floor protection. Instead, we recommend using just a very damp cloth when mopping floors. The very small amount of moisture protects the floors, yet is able to keep them clean. All of our cleaning crews are fully certified in safe practices for cleaning and maintaining any and all kinds of hardwood flooring.
