HARD FLOOR CLEANING
ServiceMaster of Charleston believes your wood floors should always look new, and our specially formulated wood care products can ensure they will.
Beautiful hardwood floors can be one of the most impressive features of your home. However, everyday wear and tear that can occur from pets, spills, traffic, high heel shoes and furniture can gradually dull the appearance of your wood floors.
Although genuine wood flooring can be expensive, caring for it doesn’t have to be. Restoring your floors may be a good option without breaking the bank on expensive sanding and refinishing. Having your hardwood floors professionally cleaned is a less costly alternative. We believe your hardwood floors can and should always look new. The key is to keep them in good shape before you have to go through the time, expense, and inconvenience of sanding and refinishing. Count on ServiceMaster Clean® to keep your hardwood floors looking their best.

TIPS TO BEAUTIFUL HARDWOOD FLOORS
Use doormats at all exterior entrances and exits to trap sand and grit
Use area rugs on high traffic pathways, particularly in pivot areas like the ends of steps and doorways.
Be sure to clean up spills immediately.

Utilize furniture protectors under furniture that will be moved regularly
Do not walk on your wood floors in shoes with high heels
Maintain a consistent humidity level.
