  • The Key Benefits of Solid Hardwood Flooring

    Solid hardwood floors can be a great option for many homes. Made from planks of solid wood, it provides a natural, timeless look that suits both contemporary and traditional decor styles. When cared for properly, solid hardwood flooring can also last for decades. There are a few key things to consider when choosing solid hardwood flooring. Firstly, consider the type of wood. Oak, maple, ash and walnut are commonly used. Each has slightly different properties. For example, oak is very durable while maple may dent more easily. Think about colour too. Many woods can be stained to achieve different shades. Installation is another big factor. Solid hardwood can be nailed or glued down over a wooden subfloor. With concrete subfloors, a floating installation is often used. An experienced flooring fitter is advisable for the best results. Maintenance involves regular sweeping and vacuuming to remove grit which can damage the floor. Use damp mopping rather than wet mopping. Place doormats at entrances to capture dirt. Follow the manufacturer's advice for cleaning products. With care, solid hardwood flooring can stay looking pristine for many years.
