Hardwood Floor Maintenance in Johns Creek
Hardwood flooring is a great choice that can give you a timeless and classic look to your home for decades if it is properly maintained. Your hardwood floor needs maintenance coatings throughout the years. During this process, your hardwood floor will be cleaned with a special cleaning machine that pairs mechanical scrubbers with a high pH cleanser to remove all dirt and grime from the surface. Next, the buffing process can start. The buffer we use does such a good job that it removes minor scratches. Then the top coat is added to the floor and the wood looks revitalized. This process extends the life of your hardwood floor. When proper maintenance is done on your hardwood flooring, it can last for over a century.
It is recommended that you do a maintenance coat every 3 to 5 years. If you do this, the sheen will be even and clear every time, and you will have a good barrier between the wood and your feet.
ARE MAINTENANCE COATS REALLY NECESSARY?
The short answer here is yes! If you want to remove minor scratching and the dull coat that has been wearing off for years, then a maintenance coat is the way to go. If you want the beautiful, uniform shine that your floor once had, then you will need a buff and a coat. This process takes far less time than a regular refinish and costs less as well. A regular maintenance schedule will delay the need for a full refinish. Here are some of the benefits:
- The process takes just about half a day for an average home size in Johns Creek
- Small flaws and scratches are removed
- Sheen and shine are revitalized
- Dustless process
- Durable finish options
- Fantastic finished results
THE RIDGELINE MAINTENANCE COAT PROCESS
We will answer any questions or concerns you have while we prepare to work on your floor. The floor is then vacuumed and wet tacked in order to make our scrubbing machine the most effective it can be. Then, a wet mop is used to remove any remaining impurities from the floor.
The second cleaning is done with the dirt dragon. This is the scrubbing machine that combines mechanical scrubbers with high pH cleansers. Dirt and grime is removed, leaving a clean slate.
Now we can buff the floor. The buffing process removes small imperfections and abrades the surface so the new finish can bond to it.
After the floor is cleaned and buffed, then it is ready for a new finish. This will be applied by our team of professionals. The finish will help to fill in any scratches and give your hardwood surface a new look, very similar to the one on the day it was installed.
