Homeowners should be aware of a few things in the hardwood cleaning process. First, wax build-up should be identified to increase it’s chances of removal. This could be a by-product of a “natural” cleaner, polish, etc. Your technician will often begin by using a multitude of “specialty” solutions, either by hand or using a special sprayer, to disengage the holding power of the waxes, dirts, oils and stains that are bonding to your floors. This basic step is an important one in the hardwood cleaning process.
