types of flooring
Wood is the hard fibrous material that forms from the main substance of the trunk or branches and beneath the bark of a tree. A wood floor is any flooring product that contains real wood as the top-most, wearable surface of the floor.
Wood flooring may be broken into three categories:
- Hardwood: Solid wood flooring is a solid piece of wood from top to bottom.
- Engineered wood flooring: real wood from top to bottom. Normally made using multiple wood veneers or slats of wood glued together at opposing directions.
- Composite engineered wood flooring: contains real wood on the wearable surface only. The backing and core material may be made up of any type of composite material.
benefits of wood flooring
- Enhance the look of your home – an easy way to make a great first impression!
- Easy to clean with minimal maintenance – use a dust mop or microfiber sweeper for quick cleaning. For deeper cleaning, use hardwood safe cleaners with a rag or sponge mop, being careful not to put too much water on the floor.
- Adds value to your home – if the time ever comes for you to sell your home, buyers will pay more for hardwood than they would for carpet.
- Better air quality – unlike carpet, hardwood does not trap dust and debris in the fiber. Wood floors are often a must for allergy sufferers.
- Can be refinished – Solid hardwood floors can be sanded down to the raw wood, stained a new color, and refinished, giving your home that fresh new look without having to fully replace the floors.
