When you hire ServiceMaster Restoration by Zaba for hardwood floor cleaning, you expect outstanding results. Here’s the proven process our team follows to deliver those results:

1. Comprehensive evaluation

Before we begin our cleaning process, our highly trained technicians inspect your hardwood floors and identify any problems. If we need to pre-treat stains or address flooring damage, we explain your options in detail.

2. Debris removal

Next, our team will get to work pre-cleaning your floors to remove large pieces of dirt and debris. This essential process removes built-up grime and prepares your floor for our professional hardwood cleaning services.

3. Professional cleaning

Our teams gently clean your wood floors with advanced equipment and the latest cleaning products. As we work, we take special care to protect your floors, adjacent carpets, baseboards, and trim. We use a cylindrical cleaning process that agitates and loosens dirt and residue and restores the natural beauty of your hardwood floors. You can count on our wood floor cleaner service to bring out the natural shine in hardwood floors throughout your home.

Once we’ve cleaned your hardwood floors with our professional equipment, we conduct a detailed hand cleaning.

Now that your floors are clean, we’ll apply a durable, protective topcoat. This application leaves your hardwood floors spotless and shiny, and helps prevent debris buildup, scuffs, scrapes, and other damage in the future. Our topcoats offer a streak-free shine or a matte finish, depending on your preferences.

3 Benefits of Professional Hardwood Floor Cleaning

Why have your hardwood floors cleaned professionally when you could just DIY the job? The answer is simple: quality and longevity.

Here are a few reasons we recommend routine hardwood floor cleaning:

  1. Extend the lifespan of your wood floors

Professional hardwood floor cleaning is an investment that protects your natural wood floors and extends their lifespan. Unlike routine sweeping, spot cleaning, and mopping, professional hardwood floor cleaning goes deep between the boards of your hardwood floors and cleans within the grains of the boards themselves.

This comprehensive cleaning process removes ground-in dirt and particles that could be damaging your wood. The result is a beautiful, clean floor that looks new and will last longer than floors that have not been professionally cleaned.

  1. Restored luster and shine

Over time, your hardwood floors take a beating. Fortunately, professional hardwood floor cleaning can help them look their best, even years after installation. If you have kids or pets or enjoy entertaining, your floors may accumulate scuffs, scratches, and dents. Professional hardwood floor cleaning will help buff this damage out and restore your floors to like-new condition.

  1. Compliance with warranty

If you’ve just installed new hardwood floors, having them professionally cleaned may help you stay in compliance with the manufacturer’s warranty. Cleaning the floors on your own, on the other hand, could violate the warranty and make it more difficult and expensive to replace the flooring if anything goes wrong.

5 Hardwood Floor Maintenance Tips for Chicago Customers

Keep your floor beautiful between cleanings with these simple maintenance tips:

  1. Clean daily. To prevent the buildup of dirt and debris, sweep or vacuum your floors daily. This removes loose dirt and helps maintain the finish of your hardwood floors.
  2. Protect high-traffic areas. Lay down door mats or area rugs in high-traffic areas. These protective coverings absorb water and dirt and prevent the elements from taking a toll on your hardwood floors, which is especially important during Chicago’s brutal winters and wet springs.
  3. Spot clean. If you spill something on your hardwood floors, clean it up promptly. Use a damp mop only when necessary, and never use cleaning products that are not formulated for hardwood floors.
  4. Use furniture pads. Prevent scratches and scuffs on your hardwood floors by adding furniture pads to the legs of your sofas, tables, and chairs.
  5. Have your floors refinished every 3-5 years. It’s easy to renew your hardwood floors with a refinish. We recommend investing in this protective tactic every 3-5 years, or more frequently if you have kids or pets.


We recommend only using products specifically formulated for cleaning wood. Don’t use oil soap, wax or harsh household cleaners that can ruin the finish on wood floors.
