Residential Maintenance Tips for Hardwood Floors

Dirt Dragon 1You’re going to want to use mats in traffic areas and doorways to protect your hardwood floor investment. Avoid some rubber –backed mats as they may discolor the floor.

To maintain your hardwood floor dust mop with a microfiber mop and our recommended floor cleaner, call us for information on the proper cleaners. You do not want to use wax or silicone –based polishes or cleaners. Some wood-flooring cleaners sold at the large department stores may actually make your floors more difficult to clean and cause problems when the floor requires refinishing. Some of these products may even attract dirt.

When you notice wear on your hardwood floor give us a call for a re-coat. Recoating can be done with a traditional screen and coat process or with our dust free refinishing system. Our system is a combination of an intensive deep cleaning with a specialized machine and a new coat of finish.

Recoat before the floor has worn down to the bare wood. If the floor has been worn down to the bare wood, it may need to be sanded. With proper cleaning and recoating when needed, the average homeowner will never have to go through the sanding process.

Green Bay Floor Restore offers free in home consultation’s on all our services. For your your tile, grout, carpet, vinyl & wood floor cleaning, sealing and recoating needs give us a try.

Wood Floor Cleaning, Recoating and Refinishing In Green Bay WI:

IMG_1879Are your residential or commercial hardwood floors starting to lose their luster? Are those hardwood floors you invested in starting to show foot traffic patterns? Do you simply just need them cleaned? You might be thinking the same thing many of my customer’s have thought, “yes, they are, but the dusty mess of sanding, the downtime and the odor of Oil Modified Urethane’s are a hassle we don’t want to deal with”. Green Bay Floor Restore can offer you a solution to all those concerns.

We start by using a specialized machine that is both compact and powerful. It will deep clean without damaging any finish. The exclusive water containment and vacuum system will extract the toughest dirt and surface contaminants leaving the floor immediately dry after use. Intense floor cleaning leaves no mess, no dust and no odor. If cleaning is all you need then this is your solution.

Our Clean and Refinish service aggressively cleans and refinishes the floor to a uniform sheen of gloss or satin, leaving no mess, no dust and very low odor. You will be back on your floor the same day.

The dust free coating service cleans and refinishes the floor to a uniform sheen of gloss, semi gloss, satin or super matte plus it provides a durable protective coating.

Our water based finishes have many advantages to you. The coating we use has been tested with a Taber Abrasion machine. This test determines a coatings’ resistance to abrasion. Resistance to abrasion is defined as the ability of a coating to withstand mechanical action such as scuffing and erosion. Our coatings Taber Abrasion ratings were 5 x more resistant than average Oil Modified Urethane. (OMU)

The coatings have half as much Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) as the traditional OMU’s making our water based finishes safer for your health.

Unlike many OMU’s , multiple coats of our water based finishes can be applied in one day. The coating job will take less time and the floor can be back in use faster. Some OMU’s can take up to 24 hours to dry. Our water based finishes take from 2-3 hours to dry.

Our coatings are the fastest curing finishes on the market. Our common residential and commercial finishes are cured 90% in 24 hours. This means less down time and you can be back on your floor faster. Full cure time on water based finishes is 7 days, OMU coatings 30 days.

If your concern is having the floor 100% cured immediately after coating, we also offer UV coatings that are cured with our special machine immediately after the coating has been applied. This is a process that many women are familiar with when they have their nails done.
