    Cleaning wood floors inside

    image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgI have been asked to clean the floors inside a Logans Roadhouse restaurant. The concrete portion is no problem. Not sure how to go about cleaning the wood portion of floors. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    I bet there is grease trapped in the wood. No experience on interior wood but, might need to be sanded down and refinished?

    I'd pass on the wood,..maybe refer it to a hardwood floor refinishing company.

    I would at least ask whats on the floors , maybe you can get it off easily. I stripped a restaurant deck earlier this year that looked like that. came out nice. used a super hot mix though.

    Outside, twenty years of French fries and ketchup. Little easier outside though.

    Water reclaim I'm guessing? Floor looks really good!

    Not sure about the reclaiming as the work was done by one of our EBC Customers...We have a few guys around the country that are bringing EBC into this type of cleaning. Been getting some great results...have some other pics if you need to see them Rance on wood/restaurant type of cleaning. Let me know and we can get them over to ya.....

    stay away, leave wood to a pro. getting water under the wood will be a expensive mistake. The wood will buckle, check and warp. Its most likely glued and that h20 will make is smell like hell. Make a transition between the concrete and wood. maybe duct tape a heavy mil plastic or vinyl shower paneling. But if you do tackle it the hand spray or misting with a pump up sprayer would be it. The top of flooring can handle h20 but when it gets between the T&g problems happen. The wood will absorb h20 then expand which leads to checking, buckling, cupping, warping and glue fracture. The concrete also absorbs h20 with no where to go but up between the wood, concrete and glue leading to 3 different substrates expanding a different rates. What ever you do don't flood it with any puddling. work small sections scrubbing and elbow grease. After scrubbing it renting a quality carpet cleaning machine with a strong vacuum and wand. 1 mist a solution on manageable section just so there's minimal h20 seepage into the flooring boards. 2- hand scrub or brush 3- carpet machine with very low flow extremely low pressure rinse or apply rinse with a pump up sprayer... remember its not decking which can breath. Even decking rot starts between the joists and decking where the decking edge faces the house because drainage slope.
