Hardwood Flooring Types
When it comes to hardwood flooring, there are two main types: solid hardwood and engineered hardwood. Each type has unique advantages that homeowners should consider before deciding. Let’s learn more about both types:
- Solid hardwood flooring is made from a single piece of wood milled to the desired thickness. It is available in various wood species and can be sanded and refinished multiple times, making it a durable flooring option. Thicker in construction, solid wood is a sturdy flooring choice that can be given a satin, matte, or gloss finish, depending on your preferences. Solid hardwood can last a lifetime and is perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, dining rooms, and hallways with proper care.
- Engineered hardwood flooring is made from layers of wood veneer fused together, with a top layer of hardwood. It is more durable than solid hardwood, making it less prone to expanding and contracting due to changes in humidity and moisture. This makes it perfect for below-grade installations where dampness is common. It is an excellent choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and basements.
Hardwood’s Many Benefits
Hardwood flooring is a popular choice for Carroll homeowners and for good reason. Our hardwood floors come from the best brands in the industry so you know you are getting the best flooring possible. Here are some of the advantages and benefits of hardwood flooring:
- Hardwood flooring is known for its durability and long-lasting quality. When properly maintained, hardwood flooring can last for decades.
- Hardwood is a sought-after feature in homes that can add value to your property.
- Hardwood flooring is easy to clean, making it ideal for busy homeowners. A simple sweep or vacuum and occasional mopping are needed to ensure these floors look beautiful.
- Hardwood never goes out of style and complements every decor style. This timeless flooring comes in various styles that suit any home.
- Hardwood flooring does not trap allergens, dust, or other pollutants, making it an excellent choice for those with allergies or asthma. It also doesn't emit harmful chemicals or odors, making it a healthier choice for your home.
Maintaining Your Hardwood Floors
Maintaining hardwood floors is essential to ensure that they remain beautiful and durable for years to come. Here are some tips for maintaining hardwood floors:
- Regular Cleaning: Regular sweeping or vacuuming is necessary to remove dirt, dust, and debris that can scratch the surface of hardwood floors. Use a soft-bristled brush attachment to avoid damaging the floors.
- Mopping: A damp mop or microfiber cloth can help remove stubborn dirt and grime. Avoid using excess water or harsh cleaners, which can damage the hardwood floors.
- Protect from Scratches: Protect hardwood floors from scratches using furniture pads under chair legs and furniture. Avoid wearing high heels or dragging heavy objects across the floors.
- Prevent Water Damage: Hardwood floors are sensitive to water damage, so cleaning up spills immediately is essential. Avoid wet mopping or using steam cleaners, as excessive moisture can cause the wood to warp or cup.
- Refinishing: Hardwood floors may become scratched or dull over time, requiring refinishing. Refinishing involves sanding down the surface of the hardwood floors and applying a new finish.
