When deciding on installing a new floor, many homeowners choose to install hardwood floors. Many of us love the look, color and feel that hardwood floors bring into our homes. However, many homeowners were also pleased to learn that there are many more benefits of hardwood floors they just didn’t expect. Mike’s Custom Flooring will share the many benefits of installing hardwood floors in your home.
Benefits of Hardwood Flooring Installation
Durable – Hardwood floors is an extremely durable type of flooring. Hardwood floors will require refinishing about every five to ten years, depending on the climate and the floors exposure. With proper maintenance and care, hardwood floors can last decades. Hardwood floors are resistant to stains and are easily cleaned. It is recommended you use a hard floor vacuum when cleaning hardwood floors and a soft fiber mop to prevent scratching the sealers.
Cleaner – Since hardwood floors are solid, unlike carpets or rugs, they don’t hold in dirt or debris. Carpets contain a lot of dirt, dander and other indoor pollutant that cause indoor allergies. Hardwood floors create a solid surface, thereby preventing pollutants from accumulating on the floor. After the hardwood floors are clean they are free of all pollutants. Less pollutants inside your home promotes better air quality, which helps reduce indoor allergies. In short, one of the additional benefits of hardwood floors is to have better air quality and fewer allergies.
Value – Installing hardwood floors in your home also can increase the value of your home. Especially when the hardwood floor has been properly maintained and cared for. Hardwood floors increase your home’s value. In many cases, the investment of installing a hardwood floor is easily returned in full, with the sale of the home. For those who worry about losing out on the financial investment of installing hardwood floors, don’t worry. You can expect your investment returned while your home increases in value.
Options – Another benefit of installing a hardwood floor is the many options you have. You will have your choice of wood types, color, and the installation design. Hardwood floors can be installed with a wide variety of patterns to create a unique feel to your home. Depending on your color and pattern choice, you can make a room feel cozier or more open. Custom designs can be done when using hardwood floors and can fit the homeowner’s own personal desire when it comes to the look of their floors.
Flexible – Hardwood floor coloring can change if you so desire. If you install a dark colored floor and later change the color of the walls or the theme of your home, the wood can change too. When hardwood floors get refinished, they are stripped and sanded down to ensure a smooth surface. Before the hardwood is resealed, you can change the wood color by choosing a different color of stain. With tile or carpet, you would need to completely replace the floor in order to change coloring. Hardwood floor color can be changed without the need to replace the entire floor.
