Types of Hardwood Floors: Before deciding on which wood to use for your floor, decide on a budget. Some woods are more expensive than others depending on where they're from and how they've been treated. More resilient woods such as maple or pecan are recommended for families with children and pets, while cherry and wenge woods are better suited to low-volume traffic areas or accents only. Grain, texture and color should all be taken into consideration as should durability and required maintenance as these all affect the price of the flooring.
Hardwood Floor Installation: Once you've chosen the type of hardwood flooring, the floors will require professional installation. Wood floors can be installed to connect to other rooms already finished in wood in an array of patterns depending on the design of the room. Most floors are installed and finished on site by a team of professional who come fully equipped to sand, stain and varnish your wooden floor as desired. The exact type of installation should be decided upon well in advance of installation day to ensure expedient service.
Hardwood Floor Maintenance: Hardwood floors can last a long time if treated right. Maintaining your wooden floors doesn't have to be a costly chore. Regular vacuuming and sweeping will avoid minor scratches from abrasive dirt. Wipe up wet spills immediately using soft cloths to avoid staining. Install felt protective feet on furniture and use rugs or mats in high foot-traffic areas. Try to avoid increased humidity in the home so that your floors won't warp and crack and keep pets' claws trimmed to avoid surface scratches.
Should your hardwood floors require repair, be sure to consult the professionals before attempting a DIY fix-it job that could end up further damaging the floor. Common causes of damage include water damage, improper furniture placement, high traffic, dents and scratches from dropping items on the floor and damage resulting from pets. Hardwood floor professionals can easily repair visual blemishes, split or cracked boards, and squeaky or warped boards.
