The advantages of having hardwood flooring

Hardwood floors are probably one of the best upgrades you can do to any business or  home these days. Hardwood flooring can be relatively maintenance free and easy to maintain. The advantages of hardwood flooring over carpeting are numerous.

Wall to wall carpeting are subject to stains that are unremovable, and hold bacteria and mold that you probably can’t see. Carpeting also has a tendancy to lift and curl over time making it hard to walk on and not too easthetically pleasing.

Hardwood floors are so much more rich looking with their natural wood features. Having new hardwood floors installed can also increase the value of your home. Replacing your old carpeting with new hardwood flooring can make your home look more modern and updated than ever before.

One thing to keep in mind when planning your hardwood installation is that the harder the wood itself is the more likely the flooring will be in resisting scratches and dents. Maple hardwood floors are easier scratched as opposed to oak wood floors for example.

If you are upgrading your home with a professional installer make sure they cut the wood flooring outside as you will not want saw dust all over your home from the cuttings they will make to install your floors. It is also suggested you get at least three quotes when calling hardwood floor installers in your community.

Certain areas of your home should not be considered for installing hardwood floors, particularly areas that have lots of moisture like kitchens and bathrooms for example. There are also an abundance of finishes that you can choose from for your hardwood flooring project from light natural wood finishes to darker and more rich looking finishes.
