Hardwood Floor Care & Maintenance, Huntington Beach, CA

At Gäte Hardwood Floors, we understand how important it is to our Huntington Beach clients to keep their hardwood floors looking their best. There are a number of things you can do to keep your floors from getting damaged, fading, becoming dull, or wearing prematurely. Some of these proactive measures need to be implemented as soon as your floors are installed. This includes giving the floor’s finish several days’ time to cure before covering it with plastic or moving furniture onto or across it. Once the finish has cured, it is important to do all you can to care and protect your floors. For example, it helps to use pads under furniture, avoid walking with high heels, immediately wipe up spilled liquids, keep pet toenails short, and keep your floors clean. You can clean your floors with a vacuum (with soft bristles), broom, or dry mop. If your floors need a deeper and more-thorough clean, you can use cleaning products that are recommended by the finish manufacturer. If your floors are exposed to direct sunlight on a daily basis, you may also want to consider using rugs, awnings, blinds, or curtains to keep your floors from fading unevenly. If you have any questions, give us a call. We are always happy to educate our Huntington Beach customers about the recommended best practices for the care and maintenance of their specific type of wood floor.

Professional Hardwood Floor Cleaning & Recoating/Sealing, Huntington Beach, CA

Hardwood floors needs to be kept free of sand, dirt, and grit, which can cause micro-scratches in the floor’s finish as well as premature wearing. As mentioned above, it helps to place floor mats at all entrances and in areas of high traffic to keep sand and dirt from settling into your floors. It is also important to regularly sweep, vacuum, or dry mop your floors to remove any sand or dirt that might have accrued. While these measures are important, a professional cleaning is still recommended for optimal care and protection of your floors. At Gäte Hardwood Floors, we offer free hardwood floor cleaning services in Huntington Beach at affordable prices. Whenever possible, we use commercial-grade cleaning products recommended by the finish manufacturer. For the best value, it helps to coordinate our cleaning service for when your wood floors also need to be recoated or sealed. Call today to learn more about our Huntington Beach hardwood floor cleaning and recoating/sealing services.

Hardwood Floor Sanding, Refinishing, and Restoration Services in Huntington Beach, CA

At Gäte Hardwood Floors, we believe that wood floors should only be sanded when absolutely necessary. That’s because each time you have your floors sanded, you are losing a thin layer of wood. For more traditional, solid wood, this may not be a problem. However, it becomes more of a concern over time if the wood panels are relatively thin. Typically, sanding removes 1/32” of wood from a smooth wood floor and 1/16” from textured or distressed hardwood floors. Part of our free consultation will involve evaluating your floors and talking through what you hope to achieve. In many cases, we can achieve incredible results without sanding. In fact, the beauty of having natural wood floors is that they can often still look beautiful, warm and inviting even with a few scratches and dings. However, if your floors do require major restoration work, or you want to change your floor’s color or finish, sanding will likely be necessary. Helping you determine how best to proceed to achieve your goals is what we do best. Call today for a free consultation regarding our Huntington Beach hardwood floor sanding, refinishing and restoration services.

Choosing the Best Hardwood Flooring System for Your Huntington Beach Home or Business

When it comes time to choose the ideal hardwood flooring system for your home or business in Huntington Beach, depend upon the hardwood flooring sales and installation experts at Gäte Hardwood Floors. Today’s hardwood floor systems come in an extensive variety of choices, and each type of wood floor has its own set of attributes, ideal conditions, and installation requirements. For example, engineered hardwood flooring is better in conditions with high humidity levels and large temperature variations, because it is more resistant to the expansion and contraction these environmental conditions cause in wood flooring.

During our consultation, we’ll assess your floors and take the time to understand your style preferences and goals. Then you can either visit a hardwood floor showroom, or we can present you with some samples. We’ll work with you every step of the way and answer any questions you may have. Our team is highly respectful and responsive, so you can feel confident that you’ll end up with hardwood floors that match your unique vision.


We had another crew refinish our floors and we were so disappointed with the poor job that we hired Gate Hardwood to redo them. Brian and his crew did an amazing job! They had to resand all of the old finish off the floors and added a beautiful new stain and satin finish to them. The floors are now so beautiful that I can’t stop looking at them. Thank you Brian, for such a fantastic job!
