We can also recommend wood flooring products and designs that we know from experience will best serve their needs and be cohesive with the style of their home or business.

Wood Floor Cleaning & Maintenance, Costa Mesa, CA

Observing a regular schedule of routine maintenance is very important to the long-term condition of hardwood floors and staircases. Hardwood floor maintenance involves thoroughly cleaning the wood floors and reapplying a protective finish on a regular basis: typically every two to three years for newly installed floors that rely on a more natural oil-based finish, and about every 7 to 10 years for floors protected with a water-based finish like those made by Bona Traffic. While floors that are well-taken care of may be able to extend the amount of time between floor refinishings, it is generally best to be proactive and err on the side of caution. That’s because an unfinished floor is an unprotected floor — one that is more vulnerable to scratches, stains, and general wear. If left unprotected for too long, a floor may end up requiring more intensive work, such as sanding, re-staining, and multiple coats of finish, in order to restore its original look and luster. If you are unsure of your wood floor’s cleaning and maintenance needs, call Gäte Hardwood Floors today. We can answer most questions over the phone or schedule a free in-home consultation for hardwood floor cleaning and maintenance services at your Costa Mesa property.

Remodeling projects almost always take longer and end up costing more than expected. Brian and his company were a welcome exception to this rule. He and his crew worked with great diligence and completed the project (1800 SF of hardwood floors plus the staircase) in exactly the number of days he estimated when I signed the contract. I thought it was optimistic at the time, but the whole thing was done within 9 days. Even with the quick completion, however, Brian pays the utmost attention to every detail and takes obvious pride in his work. He even paid for a housecleaning service to come through after the project was finished to make sure every speck of construction dust was gone.
