So your hardwood floor doesn't look like it used to. Don't panic. Your floor can look new again. Call UCM Services Needham at 781-247-5151 for expert hardwood floor refinishing services.
Hardwood floors are usually finished with a layer of protective polyurethane. People sometimes think that their floors are ruined when it is really just the finish that is wearing away. Which is really good news. The finish is doing its job, keeping that expensive hardwood from getting damaged. Refinishing every few years will reveal the beauty of your hardwood floors hidden beneath that marked up finish.
Dirt particles get stuck in the finish of a wood floor, making it look dull and lifeless. UCM Services Needham's expert staff of hardwood floor cleaners will carefully clean away surface dirt that can scratch the wood. The technicians use high quality professional floor cleaning equipment for expert results, gently wearing away the top surface of the finish, to prepare the flooring for the new finish. Once all the dust is cleaned away, we apply a new coat of finish to the floor.
Because refinishing protects the hardwood, it literally will extend the time until the hardwood boards will need to be sanded before refinishing. Sanding is necessary if there is damage or discoloration to the actual boards and not just the finish, or if there are any areas of the floor where the finish is completely gone. UCM Services Needham uses top of the line dust containment systems to reduce the dust that arises from the sanding process to a bare minimum.
UCM Services Needham is proficient in all methods of repair for minor floorboard damage, such as deep scratches and gouges, so that in the end all that you will see is your beautiful hardwood floor. So leave your hardware floor refinishing to the experts at UCM Services Needham. And the cost of hardwood floor refinishing saves you money in the long run, extending the time until the hardwood floor will need to be replaced.
Here are some simple tips to maintain your finish and keep your floor clean.
Get rid of grit: Sweeping is very important as small bits of dirt can really damage your finish. Watch out for high heels on hardwood, and keep your pet's nails clipped.
Decrease dirt with doormats: Putting doormats at entrances will reduce the amount of dirt and small rocks tracked in from outdoors. It's even better to take your shoes off when you come inside.
Never wet mop: Moisture is really bad for hardwood. Also, be careful with home steam cleaning devices - steam can cause your expensive hardwood to swell and buckle.
Wipe up spills promptly.
Choose your cleaning solution carefully: Just because it says on the package that it is made for hardwood floors doesn't mean it is right for your floor. Avoid cleansers that also say they make it shine - they leave behind an ugly residue that will make your floor look worse over time and will be difficult to remove. In general, you want a cleaner with a neutral PH, that won't leave behind a residue that dulls your finish.
Following these easy tips will keep your floor looking great for years to come. But when it comes time to refinish your floors, leave it to the professionals at UCM Services Needham. We know floors, and your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
