What's the Difference Between Solid and Engineered Hardwood?
Due to technology upgrades in the flooring industry, you now have the option of choosing between what kind of hardwood you'd like installed. While traditional hardwood is composed entirely of solid hardwood, engineered hardwood is designed with cross-cut planks fused to create a stronger surface.
Although engineered hardwood is typically more expensive than its traditional counterpart, it can withstand heavier foot traffic and performs well in more humid climates as it expands and contracts less.
Hardwood Flooring Maintenance
The advantages of hardwood floors are endless, from a timeless appeal to sustainable investment, but perhaps the most significant benefit is the low-maintenance upkeep. Only requiring regular vacuuming and sweeping, your floors can look brand new for years down the line. Hardwood floors should be mopped with a warranty-certified cleaner and a wet mop to keep them in pristine condition.
Keep in mind that if marks appear on the surface of your hardwood floors, you should consult your warranty for the best cleaning methods for smoothing them out so that you don't ruin the hardwood finish.
When it comes time for installation, we can help make arrangements with trusted contractors in our area.
