When we bought our new house, the main draw was the dark hardwood floors in the home. We knew that we wanted to strip and clean the floors, but we also knew that it was going to be costly to hire the professional floor cleaning company to do the hardwood. I wanted to have them come once a month and do a different floor every time. My husband wanted to get some crazy videos and do the research and the floors, on his own. He had bought a bunch of videos and after watching them several times, I was dreaming about cleaning. He was certain the videos had made him a professional. When he got his next check, he brought home everything we needed for stripping and cleaning our hardwood. The next morning, he woke me up early, to help move all of the furniture out of the living room. He pulled the video and watched it one more time, just to make sure he was doing the floors perfectly. Once he got started, it was a long drawn out process. When he finally finished with the floor, I had to admit that I was shocked. The living room floor looking stunning and I was anxious to see the rest of the floors finished. I thought we should have a professional flooring cleaner, but my husband is professional enough for me. He told me that i had to pay him if I wanted the rest of the floors finished. I offered to cook him steak and lobster for a meal. He thought that was a great deal and accepted it.
