Wood Floor Cleaning FAQ - Rescue Pro Clean

How should I prepare my wood floors before professional cleaning?
Before the scheduled cleaning service, it's best to remove any furniture, rugs, or objects from the floor to allow easy access for the cleaning team. Clearing the floor helps ensure a thorough and efficient cleaning process.
Do I need to remove existing wax or coatings before wax stripping and recoating?

No, you don't have to remove the existing wax or coatings on your wood floors. Our wax stripping and recoating process is designed to remove old layers of wax, dirt, and grime while applying a fresh coat of protective wax to rejuvenate your floors.

Should I do any pre-cleaning or sweeping before the wood floor cleaning service?

It's helpful to do some light sweeping or dry mopping to remove loose dirt and debris from the surface of your wood floors before the cleaning service. This allows the cleaning products to work more effectively and ensures a more thorough clean.

Do I have to be home while you are cleaning?

No. As long as we have access to a hidden key or code, we just need to call and do a credit card payment over the phone prior starting the job. We can take before and after pictures for you and text them to you along with a professional receipt.

Can I leave area rugs or carpets in place during the wood floor cleaning process?

It's best to remove area rugs or carpets from your wood floors to ensure a comprehensive cleaning. Removing rugs allows our team to clean every corner and surface of your wood floors, providing optimal results.

How long does it take for the wood floor to dry after wax stripping and recoating?

The drying time can vary based on factors such as humidity levels and ventilation. Typically, it takes around 4-6 hours for the wax to dry completely. During this time, it's essential to avoid walking on the newly coated area to prevent any disruptions to the curing process.

Should I cover my wood floors after wax stripping and recoating to protect them?

It's advisable to avoid covering the newly waxed floors immediately after the service. Covering the floor may hinder the drying process and trap moisture, which can affect the final outcome. Our professionals will provide specific instructions based on your specific situation.

Can I place furniture back on the wood floors right after the cleaning process?

It's recommended to wait until the wood floors are fully dry and the wax has cured before placing furniture back on them. This helps prevent any potential damage or marks on the newly treated surfaces.

Are there any precautions I should take to maintain the quality of the wood floors after the cleaning service?

To maintain the cleanliness and beauty of your wood floors after the service, it's advisable to avoid excessive moisture and regularly clean the floors using manufacturer-approved wood floor cleaners. Additionally, using furniture protectors and area rugs in high-traffic areas can help prevent scratches and wear.

How often should I schedule professional wood floor cleaning, wax stripping, and recoating services?

The frequency of these services depends on various factors, including foot traffic, the condition of the floors, and personal preference. As a general guideline, it's recommended to have professional wood floor cleaning and maintenance performed every 1-2 years to keep your floors in optimal condition.
