5 Questions on Hardwood Flooring
If you’re thinking about installing hardwood flooring in your Florida home, the chances are good that you have a few questions. Below are answers from California Designs to the most obvious questions you may have:
- What are the Benefits of Hardwood Flooring?
Aside from the fact that hardwood floors add a sense of elegance and sophistication to the home, they come with several other benefits too. For starters, it is much easier to maintain hardwood floors than many other flooring solutions, and they also have a much longer lifespan. They are affordable, depending on the type of wood and finish you prefer.
- Does Hardwood Flooring work in Modern Properties?
Definitely! Hard wood floors are very trendy now, only adding to a home’s contemporary flair.
- Why do People choose Hardwood Flooring over Carpets or Tiles?
Generally, hardwood flooring lasts longer than tiles and it is so much easier to clean than carpets. Hardwood floors also don’t retain odors like many carpets do.
- How does Humidity affect Hardwood Flooring?
Humidity can cause wood to expand and absorb moisture. Over time this can lead to the wood warping. However, it is important to note that too little humidity can also be harmful. One way to counteract the effects of humidity is to treat your hardwood floors on a regular basis.
- Can I install Hardwood Flooring in High Traffic Areas?
Yes, you can. If you are worried about dents, scuff marks and scratches, you might want to opt for light wood flooring options, as these tend to hide the imperfections a lot better than dark wood alternatives.
