Hardwood Flooring 101

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Design Tips, slider

When you decide to install hardwood flooring in your home, you should take time learn all you can about hardwood.  It’s good to know that even though these flooring are beautiful they are also strong, durable and functional floors.

Where can I install hardwood floor:
The answer is just about anywhere — put it in living rooms, dining rooms, family rooms and kitchens or any other room that you think you’d enjoy the beauty of wood flooring. In addition, you can install it directly onto concrete slabs, either on grade or above grade, and on conventional wood joist construction over a basement or a crawl space.

What type of finish is best for kitchens:
“Urethanes” finished are suggested for rooms that are often exposed to spills and stains, like kitchens. While it is strong, urethanes can ware through, and are costly to refinish.

What about prefinished hardwood flooring?

Prefinished or factory already finished means you’ll know exactly how your floor is going to look, and you can walk on it as soon as it is installed.

The only down side is that there is no room for mistakes during installation, because you can’t erase or refinish mistakes.

Is it tough to keep hardwood floors looking good?

Hardwood floor will stay looking great with regular maintenance, keep the floors clean and dust-free.

Use a dust mop and vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt, and use a hardwood cleaner with a dry mop to keep the flooring clean.
