Have you noticed signs of wear and tear on your hardwood floors?

If you have, it may be time to have your hardwood floors cleaned, buffed, and refinished by Lightning Clean. In order to avoid a major disruption by having to fully sand your hardwood floors (i.e. high cost, creates incredible amounts of dust in your home causing you to move out for a few days) you should have them refinished every other year depending on how much traffic your floors endure. Keep your hardwood floors looking great for as long as possible by giving us a call today! We’re here to help for all your hardwood floor refinishing needs.

Hardwood Floor Cleaning and Buffing


If you have hardwood floors in your home, you’re probably familiar with scratches and scuffs. Visible marks on your hardwood floors can be caused by all kinds of things, such as: shoes, moving furniture, drops, pet claws, etc. If these marks are left untreated for too long, it can leave your hardwood floors exposed and lead to future deterioration. To prevent this, Lightning Clean offers professional cleaning and buffing to help bring life back to your hardwood floors and conceal visible damage. That’s why it’s recommended that your hardwood floors be professionally cleaned and polished periodically. With a deep clean you can restore your hardwoods to their former beauty.


One Day Hardwood Floor Screen and Recoat


Screen and Recoat is the best kept secret in the hardwood flooring industry. But it shouldn’t be because it can save you time and money over the life of your floor. A “screen and recoat” is a part of the regular maintenance for hardwood floors that have been finished with polyurethane. It is important to screen your floors at least once every other year in order to avoid needing full sanding. Screen and recoat are done in one day! We remove the old polyurethane coating with a screen, just like a floor sander but using a screen.  We remove all residue from the floors to make sure they are thoroughly cleaned before the recoating process. We then would apply 2 new polyurethane coatings to get a nice, smooth finish.


A screen and recoat is not recommended for floors…

  • that have been finished with waxes (including acrylic products such as Mop & Glo), or maintained with silicon cleaners or oil soaps.
  • with hard finishes like aluminum oxide.
  • that are engineered floors, laminate floors, or vinyl floors.


If you have any questions about your hardwood floors, we’d love to help. Call today for a free assessment and quote. We may be able to save your investment with a screen and recoat and you’ll avoid expensive sanding repairs. Call 919-907-2321 for more information.


Hardwood Floor Old Wax Removal


Hardwood floor protection is a great way to keep your hardwood floors protected from moisture and damage. Protectors should be applied regularly; unfortunately, store-bought wax products can cause build-up and leave your floors looking dull and murky after a short time. Wax removal can be time-consuming and labor-intensive. Save yourself the trouble and allow the trained professionals at Lighting Clean to handle all of your hardwood wax removal needs.


Once the area has been prepared, we use a three-step wax removal process to clean, rinse and polish your hardwood floor. Our machine’s rotary brush and self-contained extraction system removes dirt and grime – without making a mess! The cleaning process is then repeated with a neutralizer to restore the pH of the wood, as well as remove any contaminants left on the floor. Finally, an application of a satin or gloss coating restores the shine and beauty to your floors. When you have Lightning Clean remove wax from your hardwood floors your hardwoods will look like new!
