From Basic to Exotic: Polishing All Types of Hardwood with Kiwi Services
There are many types of hardwood floors that can benefit from regular polishing to maintain their shine and durability. Here are some common ones:
- Oak Flooring: This is one of the most popular hardwood flooring types, known for its durability and beautiful grain. Both red and white oak can benefit from regular polishing.
- Maple Flooring: Maple has a subtle grain pattern and light color. It’s very hard and durable, and it’s often used in bowling alleys and gymnasiums. Polishing can help maintain its shine.
- Hickory Flooring: Hickory is a very hard wood, which makes it durable and resistant to dents and scratches. Polishing can keep it looking its best.
- Walnut Flooring: Walnut is softer than some other hardwoods, but it’s very beautiful and can benefit from regular polishing to keep it shiny and to protect it from damage.
- Cherry Flooring: Cherry has a rich, warm color that deepens over time. Regular polishing can help protect this surface and maintain its lustrous appearance.
- Bamboo Flooring: While technically a grass, bamboo is often included in the hardwood category because it’s hard, durable, and can be sanded and refinished like hardwood. It can also benefit from regular polishing.
- Mahogany Flooring: Known for its exceptional beauty and durability, mahogany is often chosen for high-end homes. Polishing helps to maintain its shine and color.
- Ash Flooring: Ash is a very strong and durable wood with a light color and prominent grain. Polishing can protect it from damage and keep it looking bright and fresh.
- Birch Flooring: Birch comes in a range of colors, from light yellow to dark brownish-red. Regular polishing can help maintain its shine and resist scratches.
- Pine Flooring: Pine is a softwood, but it’s often used for flooring because of its character and rustic look. It’s more prone to dents and scratches than harder woods, but polishing can help protect the surface.
Our Wood Floor Polishing Services:
- Sweeping/Vacuuming: We begin by thoroughly sweeping or vacuuming your hardwood floors to remove all loose dust and debris. We use high-quality vacuums with soft-bristle attachments designed specifically for hardwood floors to prevent any potential damage.
- Mopping: We then apply a specially formulated hardwood floor cleaning solution using a well-wrung-out mop, always following the direction of the wood grain for the best results. We ensure the mop is just damp and not soaking to protect your floor from water damage.
- Drying: We allow the floor to dry completely before proceeding, to ensure the best results for the following steps.
- Detailed Examination: Our professionals thoroughly examine your hardwood floors for any deep scratches, stains, or other forms of damage. This helps us understand the floor’s current condition and the level of service needed.
- Determining Course of Action: If we find any minor scratches, these will be tackled during the buffing process. However, in the case of significant damage, we suggest comprehensive repair and refinishing before moving to the polishing process.
- Buffer Preparation: Our team prepares the buffer machine by attaching a screen or buffing pad. The grit used depends on the extent of scratches or imperfections on your floor.
- Buffing: We skillfully move the buffer over your floor, working with the grain of the wood. We ensure constant motion to avoid damaging any one spot.
- Dust Cleanup: After buffing, we sweep or vacuum your floor again to clean up any dust produced during the buffing process.
- Polish Selection: We select a polish that is suitable for your specific type of hardwood floor, ensuring it will enhance rather than harm your floor.
- Polish Application: We pour the polish onto your floor and spread it evenly using a microfiber pad. We start from the corner farthest from the door and carefully work our way towards the exit to avoid walking on the freshly polished surface.
- Buffing: If necessary, we use a buffer to help the polish penetrate the wood and create a high gloss finish, always keeping the buffer in motion.
Enhancing and Protecting Your Hardwood Floors. Preserve the luster and protection of your hardwood floors with our professional waxing service. Here’s how we do it:
- Surface Preparation: We thoroughly clean your floors, removing dust and debris.
- Wax Selection: We choose a high-quality wax suitable for your hardwood floors.
- Wax Application: Our experienced technicians apply the wax evenly with specialized tools.
- Drying Time: We allow the wax to dry completely for a strong bond.
- Buffing: Using professional-grade machines, we buff the floors for a smooth finish.
- Final Touches: We inspect and remove any excess wax, leaving your floors pristine.
- Let it Dry: We allow the polish to dry completely before anyone walks on your floor. This usually takes a few hours, depending on the specific product we use.
- Additional Coats: If necessary, and based on your preference, we can apply additional coats of polish for a more glossy and protective finish. We allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next.
As your service provider, we always prioritize your satisfaction and the care of your hardwood floors. We follow best practices and manufacturers’ guidelines to ensure your floors not only look beautiful but also maintain their integrity and durability.
Polishing each type of hardwood floor involves a similar process, although the specific products used may vary based on the type of wood. Here’s a general process for how a professional would polish each of these types of hardwood floors.
This process can help maintain the shine and durability of hardwood floors. It’s typically recommended to polish hardwood floors every 2-4 months, depending on the level of traffic and wear. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions for floor care to prevent damage and maintain any warranties.
