Hardwood Floor Cleaning & Dust Free Refinishing of Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, & Bucks Counties
Along with a hardwood floor comes the responsibility of keeping it clean. The better care you take, the longer your floor will maintain its original beauty. Step one is to purchase a high quality broom so that you can sweep your floor regularly of dirt, dust and other particles.
Second step is a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar, to get in between the boards and other hard to reach areas.
Deeper cleaning techniques vary depending on the installation and finish of your hardwood floor. Using an 8”x14” terrycloth mop with a rotating head, makes cleaning corners, under cabinets and along base boards a lot easier and is recommended.
Professional cleaning products recommended by your flooring retailer can be used to remove tough stains and spills without dulling the finish of your wood floor.
If and when your hardwood floor begins to look dull it’s time to consider a make over, to help with the minor scratches and dull appearance’s.
At Vic Carpet Dry Cleaners, we are able to introduce a Dust Free way to restore your beautiful hardwood floors and furnishings without the sanding mess. Our Dust –free restoration and refinishing process…. can refinish your floors to their original luster without the usual mess. The dust created from sanding never has a chance to get airborne and is automatically removed from the home. Therefore, we leave behind a clean environment in addition to beautiful floors.

Do and Don’ts
Don’t wax a wood floor with a urethane finish
Do use cleaners that won’t leave a film or residue
Don’t use ammonia cleaners or oil soaps on a wood floor — they’ll dull the finish and affect your ability to recoat later.
Do use a professional hardwood floor cleaner to remove occasional scuffs and heel marks (just spray some cleaner on a cloth and rub the stained area lightly)
Don’t wet mop or use excessive water to clean your floor (wood naturally expands when it’s wet and can cause your floor to crack or splinter).
Do clean sticky spots with a damp towel or sponge
Do minimize water exposure and clean spills immediately
Protect Your Investment
All hardwood floors fade or change shades over time. Like our own skin, wood’s exposure to sunlight may greatly increase this process and cause permanent damage.
Window treatments are recommended to shade your floors from the sun’s harsh rays. We also recommend rotating area rugs and furniture regularly, allowing wood floors to age evenly from UV exposure.
To avoid permanent marks and scratches, it’s a good idea to cover furniture and table legs with flannel protectors. Be careful when moving heavy objects across your floor to avoid scuffing.
At Vic’s Carpet Dry Cleaners we understand your needs and will treat you and your floors with personal care to restore warmth to your wood floors.
