hardwood floor cleaning
When you sweep and mop to clean hardwood floors, you’re not removing all dirt. Cleaning hardwood floors requires deep dirt extraction because, without it, dirt, debris, and allergens settle into cracks and crevices. Sweeping and mopping are important steps to reduce the chance of debris scratching floors and picking up daily dirt brought in by foot traffic; however, a professional hardwood cleaning is key to keeping dirt out of your floors.
At Stanley Steemer, we use our USA-manufactured hardwood floor auto scrubber and 4-jet gecko to clean hardwood floors. Both machines use our patented wood floor cleaner and hot water to extract dirt, leaving your hardwood floors spotless.
Our technicians have extensive training to clean hardwood floors, keeping your hardwood looking shiny, clean, and, like new. Stanley Steemer is your hardwood flooring cleaner, we service solid wood, engineered wood, laminate, LVT, and linoleum.

Stanley Steemer Hardwood Floor Cleaner™
Our hardwood floor cleaner shines and protects hardwood and laminate floors. It removes grease, dirt and scuff marks without leaving any dulling residue.
Just as we deep clean hardwood, we clean a variety of hard surface floors to help maintain their original condition and beauty. This includes engineered wood, laminate, LVT, VCT, and linoleum. Our technicians are experts at identifying floors to ensure the safest cleaning methods are applied.
VCT & Linoleum
- Before we start cleaning hardwood floors, our technicians do a thorough inspection and determine the material. After identifying the floor, we can pinpoint the best way to clean. We clean engineered wood, solid wood, laminate floors -- you name it. Our technicians will make sure to find any pre-existing damages and determine what type of cleaning solution and equipment to use on your floor.
- Next, we will move as much furniture as we can out of the way and vacuum the entire area with our truck mounted vacuum system. After all of the dry soil is removed, the hardwood floor cleaning begins.
- We will use our hardwood floor auto scrubber or 4-jet gecko to deep clean your floors. This cleaning machine uses our patented hardwood floor cleaner and hot water to remove as much dirt as possible.
- After we deep clean hardwood floors, we will dry the area with a microfiber mop and fan, so your floors can be walked on immediately and there is no chance of water damage to your floor.
- Finally, we will complete an inspection with you to make sure you are happy with the service and leave you with clean hardwood floors.
Professional floor cleaning helps create a business that’s cleaner & healthier for guests and employees. Vacuuming doesn’t remove all dirt and debris on your hard surface floors and mopping tends to just spread dirt around – without removing it. At Stanley Steemer, we go beyond the surface to clean and extract embedded dirt from your hardwood, VCT and other floors.
We use our hardwood floor auto scrubber or 4-jet gecko to deep clean your hardwood. After, we use a microfiber mop and fan to dry the entire area, so your floors can be walked on immediately with no water damage. We’re also experts at stripping and waxing VCT floors for a finish that’s like new!

How to deep clean hardwood floors?
When cleaning your hardwood floors, the first thing you should ask yourself is what kind of hardwood you have and what kind of cleaner has been used on your floors in the past. If your floors are sealed with polyurethane or wax, use a mild or pH-neutral soap. Stay away from acidic cleaners because they can damage wood over time. If you don’t know what your floors have been cleaned with, the best product to clean hardwood floors is a neutral, pH-balanced hardwood floor cleaner because it’s safe on all hardwood and laminate floors.

Can you steam clean area rugs on hardwood floors?
- We do not recommend that you steam clean area rugs on hardwood floors. Water and steam can permanently damage hardwood. Instead, move the rug to an area of your home that has a less porous flooring before cleaning it.
How do you clean hardwood floors?
- Regular mopping just doesn’t reach the stubborn dirt that lies deep in the pores of your hardwood, but our hardwood floor cleaning process does. We use a high-speed rotary brush extraction machine and a neutral cleaning agent to break up tough dirt and contaminates. The final step is to go over the floor using a microfiber mop. Edges are hand scrubbed, as are stairs. Learn more here.
