Quality hardwood floors can add value to your home and last a lifetime
if taken care of properly. They increase in value as your home does, and with
proper and simple maintenance, they can last the life of the home. Combine that
with their timeless appeal and you can see why hardwood floors remain the most
popular hard surface flooring in remodeling and new home construction
Easy to Maintain
Routine maintenance is little more than simple sweeping and vacuuming. Preventive
maintenance like area rugs, floor protectors (on ALL furniture on your hardwood
floors), and routine maintenance with a proper hardwood floor cleaner (we recommend Bona
Swedish Formula Hardwood Floor Care System) should always be exercised. Improper
products (namely wax and oil products) can contribute to additional wear, may
VOID your warranty, and cause failure when recoating.
Unlike most floor coverings, wood floors come from a natural resource that is
sustainable. Long gone are the days when timber was cut down with little thought
for the long term consequences to the world's forests. Today most timber is cut
from forests that are carefully managed to ensure continued resources in the
future. In fact, according to U.S. Forest Service statistics, almost twice as
much hardwood timber is added every year through new growth as is harvested.
Additionally, there is more standing hardwood timber today than there was 50
Wood floors are a completely natural, biodegradable product. They do not harbor
dirt, dust mites, and other common pollutants found in carpeting - there is just
nowhere for them to hide. Furthermore, much technology has gone into the development
of waterborne products to circumvent environmental issues associated with petroleum
products. Water based stains and finishes have much lower V.O.C.
(volatile organic compound) levels than their oil-based predecessors. Waterborne
products present a safe, quick, and odorless option to homeowners planning hardwood
Selection and Variety
With today's technologically advanced manufacturing, stains and finishes, hardwood
floors come in many sizes, styles, colors, finishes and species. These many choices
can complement any home or office with style and a beautiful product that will
last a lifetime.
