Floor Care

hardwoodHardwood Floors

Dirt, grit and sand are your hardwood floors worst enemies. They act like sandpaper on the finish, causing scratches, dents and dulling. Place floor mats at entrances to trap dirt and prevent damage. Standing water can warp a poorly finished hardwood floor and can damage the finish. Simply wipe up all spills as they happen. Avoid oil soaps. They can build up and create problems when it’s time to put a maintenance coat on the floor. Instead, neutral pH cleaners made specifically for wood floors are recommended.

This tile is commonly noticed in large commercial settings.  There is only one way to care for VCT.  The reason to strip and wax VCT is to remove dirt, debris, and the old wax finish from the tile.  After stripping the old wax, you then lay new wax leaving the floor to a mirror finish.

It is important to maintain VCT by dust mopping daily, and buffing.  When mopping the floor, you must use only cold water, and a neutral rinse.

spinnerCeramic tile and Grout Cleaning

With the grout spinner attachment to the truck-mount carpet cleaning van we can get pressures up to 1200 psi, and reach temperatures up to 210 degrees.  This will get rid of grime you have seen building up for years. After evaluating the floor, we saturate the floor with a tile and grout cleaner and allow it some dwell time.   We then work on some of the areas with a grout brush if needed.  Afterward, we come in with the tile spinner and go to work.  The floor is being rinsed the same time it is being cleaned.

If your local school, or gym would like to have your floor rescreened, cleaned and a few more coats of polyurethane, Commonwealth Cleaning can accommodate your need.  With the patented square scrub, we come in and sand the floor taking a few layers off of the finish, then we tack the floor with Mineral spirits making sure all of the dust and grime is gone.  We then lay the polyurethane done with a T-Bar.  Leaving the floor looking beautiful, and ready for the public.
