It's essential to clean and maintain your hardwood floors to reach their maximum lifespan potential. But in that course of maintenance, can they be steam cleaned?

This is a question that often comes up, and we'd like to address it in today's post. Read along to find out the most important facts about steam cleaning and wood floors.

Hardwood floors and steam cleaning

Some will say that steam cleaning is fine if your hardwood flooring has been sealed. However, your outcome will be far more favorable if you clean these floors in another more vetted method.

Steam cleaning utilizes a combination of water and too high temperatures, both of which can have a detrimental effect on your flooring. The same caution should be taken with engineered flooring, luxury vinyl, and bamboo to avoid even the possibility of damage.

The best way to clean your wood floors is to utilize a professional cleaning service for a deeper clean. If you decide to clean them on your own, make sure you adhere to manufacturer recommendations for methods and cleaning solutions.
