Low Maintenance Hardwood Flooring
Wood floors are easy to maintain and you can clean them quickly. However, with different types of wood floor come different needs. Laminates and engineered wood floors are one of the easier floors to maintain. However, they don’t last as long as hardwood floors. Hardwood floors do need to be refinished every 8 to 10 years, yet each time they are refinished they are like new. Hardwood floors can easily last 30 to 50 years with proper care, where laminates and engineered wood lasts between 10 to 15 years. Some engineered wood floors can be refinished, but typically only once. However all wood floor types can be clean with a vacuum, broom and dust mop. You can clean them with straight water.
Hardwood Floors are a Healthy Flooring Option
Wood floors can make the home a healthier environment. Carpets can trap or hold in dust and bacteria even after it is vacuum or cleaned. Wood floors don’t because it is a solid surface that has a protective sealer. This sealer creates a shield on the wood surface which prevents dirt or bacteria settling in. When the floors are routinely cleaned, the floor stays cleaner longer than other flooring surfaces. As a result the inside air is cleaner. Those with asthma or other respiratory problems benefit greatly from wood floors.
Durable Hardwood Floors
Wood floors are durable in many ways. As stated before they can be refinished, depending on the type of wood floors which makes repairing scratches and dents possible. Many like to say tile is more durable because they don’t get scratched or dented. This is true, but they are vulnerable to impact damage. When a heavy item drops on tile the tile will crack, chip and split into many pieces. Wood floor don’t. Wood is flexible and heavy items don’t cause major damage, only indents which can be easily repaired. Wood floors can be revived which is why they last so long, especially hardwood floors.
