This is completely normal and will happen over time. At Extreme Carpet Care & Restoration, we are more than just a carpet cleaning company!

Get Floors Professionally Cleaned
It is good practice for homeowners to clean their hardwood floors regularly, but eventually, the shine will start to fade. This is when it is time to call in a professional to clean your hardwoods. Professionals have specialized equipment and solutions that will help give your floors a deep cleaning and get their shine back.
In addition to having floors professionally cleaned, sometimes the floors need restoration to regain their shine. Floors that are damaged and need repairs should go through the refinishing process. In general, homeowners should get their floors refinished every 7-10 years. They should also get them refinished if they are planning on moving, as it will increase the overall value of the home and help the house to show better.
The refinishing process begins with cleaning the floors. After they are clean, they are sanded down to remove the top damaged layer. An edger is used to sand tight places like a bathroom or closet. After sanding, the floors will be very dusty. Vacuum, sweep, and wipe up all of the dust. After that, the stain is applied. This helps give the wood its vibrant color. The last step is to apply the finish. The finish helps protect the floor from further damage. Once the finish is applied, allow time for the floors to dry. In the end, you will have beautiful, shiny hardwood floors.
