Floor Cleaning in Ojai - Restoring Hardwood Floors

In the middle of August, our Kelly Technicians provided a maintenance service on hardwood floors, Brazilian Walnut, for a school cafeteria eating hall. This eating hall was used every day during the school year and the floors had started to show signs of wear from all of the heavy foot traffic, sliding of chairs, and of course the abnormal environmental dust that we are used to in Ojai.

Luckily, our technicians were able to bring back some much needed glow that the floors deserved. By using our in-house hardwood floor cleaning solution, Shillelagh Hardwood & Laminate Floor Cleaner, our technicians were able to complete this 3500+ square foot floor in only one day! 



Shillelagh is definitely a mouthful, but it is pronounced shuh-lay-luh. But just to give a small history on the shillelagh, it is a knobby walking stick as well as a gentleman’s weapon to “settle” disputes or arguments. We use our Shillelagh cleaning solution to “settle” the dispute that Kelly has against dirty floors that need restoration.

Kelly Cleaning offers these maintenance services to make sure that your floors look amazing and extend the longevity of your material. Without regular cleaning, floors will face excessive wear from the dirt and debris being dragged and gouged along the surface by normal foot traffic. So, if you’re thinking about having your floors maintained then give us a call at (805) 644-5308 or email us at and we can perform the task to perfection!

Sierge's Solutions

Dia Dhuit (JEE-uh Gwitch) = Hello

Dia Duit and may the road rise up to meet ya! Hello everybody and thank you for taking the time to read the Kelly Solutions. My name is Sierge, the Cleaning Concierge, and I have a nice little tad of advice I would like to share with my readers!

The helpful tip this month is in regards to solution dwell time or pretreating. There are many names that this step of the cleaning process is called, but in essence it is the time elapsed after applying a cleaning chemical or solution on a surface. 

This step is often overlooked when using a cleaner as most individuals often don’t read the instructions on simple products such as bathroom cleaners or sanitizing solutions. This is mainly due to advertisements that show the spray & wipe method, but in actuality the solution was sprayed and left for a certain amount of time before being wiped.

 So, the next time you are cleaning or disinfecting a surface, check to see if your product requires dwell time or is recommended that you pretreat the surface for an extended amount of time. For instance, if you are going to remove soap scum or water deposits off stainless steel appliances and sinks, we recommend you use a 20 second dwell time with Kelly’s own O’brite Tile Cleaner to easily clean your surface. 

For more useful tips or if you have any questions for me, email the and I will respond in the next Kelly Solutions Newsletter.

Welcome to the newest members of the Kelly Cleaning Clan: Farming First, The Becker Group Inc, Toppers Oxnard Pizza Place, Ventura VA Clinic, the City of Ojai and Hely Weber Orthopedic.

We haven’t had a welcoming article in quite some time, but that does not mean we haven’t had more companies contract our wonderful janitorial services. Kelly Cleaning takes great pride in serving so many organizations throughout Ventura County and surrounding areas. But the amazing fact is that many of the organizations that we provide janitorial services for have utilized our services for 10, 15 and even 25+ years. 

The time has come where our services with some of the companies that we work with have become multi-generational business relationships. With fewer and fewer true local companies, we take great pride in staying true to our roots and providing the best janitorial service in Ventura County! We will strive to make our services the very best and continually improve to bring greater satisfaction to our clients.
