Wood Floor Maintenance in Alpharetta
The reality of having hardwood floors come with some responsibilities too, they require a bit of attention to maintain their natural beauty. To make sure the life of your hardwood floors and keep their aesthetic value, professional cleanings utilizing the most advanced technology that are on the market are recommended on a regular schedule. Ridgeline Floors encourages a combination of mechanical scrubbing, high Ph cleaners, and vacuuming to keep your floor as clean as possible. After it’s clean our trained team will remove any small scratches in the top coat by buffing the floor. We will then recreate the amazing finish you remember by adding a fresh top coat making the floor look brand new. Some floors will last for hundreds of years through this process.
Ridgeline Floors recommends a maintenance schedule of every 3-5 years depending on the floor traffic and wear patterns. This allows the minor scratches to be removed and keep your floor looking amazing.

Of course! If you want to get the maximum life out of your floor. Extended walking on a floor will dull the finish over time. To maintain the “like new” beauty from your recent refinish, you will want to utilize the maintenance coats. Maintenance coats are quicker and less expensive than a full refinish.

The Maintenance Coat Process
The team of trained professionals arrives and answers any questions or concerns you may have. Then we will vacuum and wet tack your floor. Allowing us to start with a clean slate, this allows our machines to work the most effectively. Finally, we use a microfiber mop to remove any impurities that might remain on the floor.
When the first cleaning is done, we do a second cleaning. The machines we use, scrub the floor and utilize a high pH solution, to remove the dirt and grime that was not removed in step 1.
Now that the floor is completely clean, the next step is to buff the floor. Buffing removes any small scratches and blemishes, while ensuring the new coat will bond to the floor properly.
Since the floor is thoroughly clean and abraded, we can move to the final step. Now we apply the new finish coat, giving the floor a new shine while filling in as many of the existing scratches as possible.
