Caring for hardwood flooring can be time consuming and complicated when you take the DIY approach. High traffic areas need to be cleaned very frequently, and if your floors are especially worn, you could face hours or even days of sanding and refinishing. Let’s face it- who has the time and energy to do that? If you want to keep your hardwood floors looking like new without spending all of your free time mopping and polishing, hiring a professional cleaner is the best course of action.

Sure, you could try to do it yourself. But there are plenty of drawbacks to tackling such a task on your own. Deep marks and indentations on a hardwood floor are almost impossible to remove without professional equipment, and trying to do so on your own can result in even more damage to the surface. Attempting to buff even part of a floor requires plenty of ventilation. Without proper ventilation, tiny particles from the sanded surface can linger in the air and on surrounding furniture and appliances for days, causing respiratory problems in people and animals. Don’t risk your health for the sake of your hardwood floor! Professionals like Dan Dan the Carpet Man know from experience how to handle these tricky and sometimes dangerous situations. Let us handle it!

Another benefit of hiring a professional cleaner is that an expert can tell by appearance just what kind of wood your flooring is made from, and what kind of care it requires. Not all woods are created equal! Different types of hardwood require different types of care, and it can be hard for the average person to tell what kind they’re dealing with. Don’t accidentally do more damage to your floor by using the wrong type of cleaning product or tool!

Keeping your hardwood flooring clean prevents you from having to refinish the floor over and over, and extends the life of the wood finish. It’s a great way to improve the overall appearance of a room. But how does a quick sweep and mop with floor cleaner measure up to a professional job? The fact is experts have access to products that go above and beyond a simple swish with the mop. While it’s easy to remove a surface layer of dirt on your own, it’s much trickier to get to the particles that are deeply ground into the wood. This ground-in dirt is what makes the wood appear dull, and wears away at the finish. We use top notch equipment and products to deep clean your floors and ensure that they look as close to new as possible.

Dirty floorboards ruin the look of an otherwise beautiful room. If you want your hardwood floors to stay in the best possible shape, but don’t have a whole lot of time to spare, pass the job along to a professional. Turn the task over to Dan Dan the Carpet Man, and spend your free time doing the things you love instead of cleaning!
