Is steam cleaning a good choice for hardwood flooring?
Cleaning is vital for all floors
Cleaning is one of the most critical maintenance routines for your flooring because it collects dust, debris, and allergens that can cause many problems. One of the biggest problems is a scratched surface that mars the visual of your hardwood flooring and could cause the need for early replacement.
We strongly advise avoiding steam cleaners for hardwood products at all costs because excessive heat and pressure can cause extensive damage. In addition, even for water-resistant materials, the pressure can force moisture between and underneath boards, where it will harbor mold, mildew, bacteria, and foul odors.
But even worse, the moisture will also start the rotting process, which can lead to the necessity for early replacement. The good news is that there are plenty of better ways to clean your hardwood flooring, and we can share them with you at our showroom.
