Polishing Your Floor
We all want great-looking floors. You want to be proud of your investment. You want to come home to an elegant floor. You want your guests to compliment you on how lovely it is. You want to impress your date. You want to attract buyers for your property. You want customers to your business to have a high opinion about what you do. You want investors in your company to feel that they are getting their money’s worth. Or maybe you just want something nice beneath your feet. Floor care has garnered a lot of importance in the past decade. Since floors are under constant human traffic, they experience some of the highest stress levels in any building. There’s the furniture that’s put on them, the items that are dragged on them, and the heels that keep trooping on them, day in and day out. Dust, humidity, friction- your floor has a lot of enemies. Regardless of the situation, it will wear down with time. But you don't have to worry about your floor losing its strength and lustre. That’s where floor polish comes in. It's a protective coating applied over your floor to protect it against the abuse of traffic, and enhance its appearance.
Polishing Hardwood Floors
Here’s how you can transform your hardwood floor from dull and grimy look to a gleaming, gorgeous and well-polished phenomenon:
1. Vacuum, sweep or dust mop your hardwood floor. (Note that you should be doing this once a week, or more, if needed). The vacuum head must be brush or felt.
2. Use recommended hardwood floor cleaners for your floor. Dip your mop into the bucket of prepared cleaning solution, then wring it out completely, mop in the direction of the wood grain and repeat. For wood floors that have been surface-sealed with urethane, polyurethane or polyacrylic, you simply have to sweep and mop. These floors are stain and water-damage resistant. Remember that water is wood's worst enemy. So when moping just use a damp mop, and don't soak the floor.
3. Now you floor is ready for polishing. Sand it lightly and recoat it using a lay or two of the floor polish.
For penetrating-seal-treated and oil-treated wood floors, you should pamper and protect them with liquid or paste wax. In case there are any hairline cracks in the floor, especially during winter, don't attempt to fill them up. The cold weather usually makes the wood to shrink and crack. Everything should return to normal during the summer. However, you can use a humidifier to reduce the cracks.
Tips To Protect Your Hardwood Floor Finish
After polishing the floor, you want to keep it looking great. Here are things that you should do to maintain the appearance:
· Wipe up beverage spills as soon as they occur. Don't let water sand on the floor for any length of time.
· Get interior and exterior doormats and put them at entrances to collect dirt and moisture. This will prevent all of it from being tracked onto your floor.
· For high traffic areas such as the living room, and pivotal areas, like in front of your kitchen sink, use area rugs (with slip-resistant backings). They should be breathable, to allow moisture to escape. Remember that the overall use of your floors will dictate how often you clean. High-traffic areas will need to be mopped or polished more often, while less-frequented floors can last a bit longer between more intense cleanings.
· Trim the nails of your pet to prevent it from scratching your floor and damaging it.
· Don't roll or drag heavy appliances and furniture over your floor. You can make use of plywood hardboard or lifts.
· You can rest furniture on your floor on small metal tips or hard domes.
· Keep the relative humidity in your home between 35% and 55%. You can maintain proper humidity levels by using your air conditioner, dehumidifier, or by controlling the settings on your heating system during the summer months.
· Avoid rubber, plastic or foam back mats as they can trap moisture in the floor, and discolour it. Make sure the protective coverings you get are designed for wood floors.
· You can get a professional flooring installer to replace any individual planks, strips, or parquets that are heavily gouged or damaged.
· Avoid using the following substances to clean your hardwood floor: ammonia-concentrated cleaners, detergents, bleach, wax-based products, oil soaps, acidic materials such as vinegar or abrasive cleaning soaps. Vinegar and water tend to dull the floor’s finish over time, while soap and wax usually leave residue. Don't use oils, waxes or furniture sprays on your floor. The oil will leave a residue, and the furniture spray will create a slippery surface, and wax takes time to apply and makes re-coating difficult.
· Avoid steamers, wood stoves and electric heat on the wood floor. Steam cleaners put heat and excessive water on your floor, which results to cupping and long-term damage. The wood stoves and heat sources will create very dry conditions and lead to cracking.
· Protect your floor from direct sunlight.
· Avoid walking in your home with poorly maintained shoes, and those having heel taps, spike heels or sharp objects protruding from the shoe.
