Professional wood floor cleaning in Bellingham, WA

Need Wood Floor Cleaning?

Wood floors are a popular flooring choice across Bellingham. Wood floors can be a beautiful part of your room, but only if they are clean. The problem is, wood floors tend to accumulate dirt, allergens, bacteria and more in the cracks and wood grain. Your everyday sweeping and mopping don’t help (in fact, you often push more into the cracks). Wood floors are a big investment, so you need to keep them clean and reduce the wear on them.

Luckily, John’s Chem-Dry of Whatcom County has a solution! Our specialized wood floor cleaning service in Bellingham and the surrounding area works to revitalize the life of your wood flooring and help it remain durable and beautifully long-lasting. We work hard to provide services that will keep your home healthy and provide noticeable, long-lasting results for your floors.

What’s Hiding in Your Wood Floor?

Why should you get your wood floors cleaned? You may have never considered what might be hiding in your wood floors. You should know that the small granular openings in the wood grain are the perfect hiding place for dirt, grime, allergens, and bacteria. When you sweep or mop, you often end up pushing these particles into the small grooves in your wood instead of cleaning them away. Our wood floor cleaning service cleans and eliminates unwanted particles at the source, leaving your floors looking like new and healthier for your family. We can eliminate dirt, grime, allergens, and bacteria from wood floors.
