Wood Floor Cleaning
Hardwood floors are one of the most popular choices among today’s homeowners due to their durability and long-lasting beauty. While regular do-it-yourself cleaning and mopping at home are an important part of maintaining your wood floors, periodic professional wood floor cleaning is the best way to protect your investment long term. Chem-Dry offers an industry-leading Wood Floor Cleaning Process that combines cleaning and polishing to provide a deep clean that renews the beautiful look of your wood floors.
The Chem-Dry Wood Floor Cleaning Process
The Chem-Dry Wood Floor Cleaning Process is designed for solid hardwood, engineered wood floors, and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) type flooring. Our process uses a Chem-Dry Green Certified solution to remove dirt, grime, and allergens, such as pet dander and dust mite matter.
Counter-rotating brushes penetrate the grain of the wood for a deeper clean while using minimal water to protect the floor from damage. Then, a powerful vacuum extracts the moisture along with the dirt and grime, leaving behind sparkling clean floors. We finish the process with an application of wood floor polish to highlight the beauty of the wood grain and add a layer of protection until the next cleaning is needed.

Why do hardwood floors need professional cleaning?
Regular vacuuming and mopping can help keep wood floors clean and protect their appearance. But without professional cleaning, a film of dirt and grime will build up on your floors. This not only detracts from the appearance of floors — it can also speed up wear and tear.
Chem-Dry wood cleaning services use a specialty floor cleaner and state-of-the-art equipment to give your floors the deep clean they deserve. This way, you can restore the look of your floors and prevent long-term damage.
Do I need to vacuum or mop my floors before cleaning?
At Chem-Dry, we are sometimes asked if homeowners should vacuum or mop wood floors before a professional cleaning. Thankfully, the answer is almost always “no.”
Before deep cleaning your floors, our technicians will remove surface dirt and dust with HEPA filter vacuum cleaners. We will then use our specialty cleaning solutions and equipment to remove any stubborn dirt and grime.
How can I maintain my hardwood floors between cleanings?
Regular vacuuming and mopping will help your floors stay cleaner day-to-day and will prevent stubborn dirt and grime from accumulating.
When cleaning hardwood or other types of wood floors, it’s important to use the right products. Only use cleaning solutions that are specially formulated for the type of floor installed in your home.
If you’re unsure which cleaning products to use for day-to-day cleaning, speak with a technician at your local Chem-Dry.
How often should I have my hardwood floors professionally cleaned?
Chem-Dry recommends having hardwood floors professionally cleaned every 6 to 12 months. Floors that receive more foot traffic or use may need cleaning more often.
