Why Hire a Hardwood Floor Refinishing Service?  

Why hire a hardwood floor refinishing service?  For one, they are going to know what type of floor you have.  Laminate flooring requires far different care than floor that is solid wood.  You have to be careful what you use on a hardwood floor.  You never want to use harsh chemicals for example, or use anything that is very watery, otherwise, you're going to soak your floor and end up warping your boards.  However, there is also the risk that you take from something as simple as furniture polish.  
How can furniture polish damage your hardwood floor?  Well, for one, most furniture polish is either oil-based, or has wax in it.  As a result, even though the polish will clean your hardwood floor, after a while, the hardwood will start to soak up the oil and/or wax, and as a result, your floor will look dingy.  In addition, some hardwood floors such as teak have a naturally high oil content already, so adding more oil can discolor or even ruin your wood.  If you end up with oil soaked wood, at that point, there is no amount of cleaning that you can do that will bring back your floor.  What usually happens at this stage, is someone reaches for something acidic like bleach or vinegar to cut through the residue.  While white vinegar in small amounts can hep clean your hardwood floor, in larger doses, it can cause more damage.  That's where a professional hardwood floor cleaning service can help.  They have access to cleaning solutions that you don't have, and can also recommend some general care advice between visits.
