If you can’t decide whether to install hardwood floors (or remove your old carpeting and refinish the wood underneath), these are some of the benefits of hardwoods:
Hardwood Floors With a Quality Install Last
Thanks to durable finishes that are easy to repair, solid-wood floors can last for a hundred years or more. Over the centuries, it has shown itself to be a lovely and durable floor choice. It’s important that your wood floor is installed correctly so that it may last and remain durable.
Natural Wood Provides Coziness and Warmth
Not only is hardwood pleasant to walk on it is naturally warm. Whether nail-down or glue-down, wood is an excellent insulator, thanks to thousands of tiny air chambers which hold in heat.
Hardwood Floors Are Easy to Clean
A little sweeping and a little mopping, and your hardwood floors will keep looking nice for a long time to come. Even families with dogs and kids are realizing that it’s easier to mop a hardwood floor than try to spray/scrub/wash grape Kool-Aid out of a carpet. Another perk is that a scratch here or a gouge there really just adds character to wood floors (of course, you can always have them refinished if you prefer perfection).
Wood Floors Are Hypoallergenic
Unlike carpets (which provide a haven for mold, mildew, and dust mites), wood floors don’t give pollen, animal dander, mold, etc. any place to hide and thrive. Even when you steam clean carpets, it’s impossible to get them entirely clean. In fact, getting them wet can make things worse. Hardwood flooring is an excellent choice for anyone with any kind of environmental allergies.
Hardwood Floors Increase Home Value
Unless you’re going to be living in the same house for the rest of your life, you might think about how the flooring choices you make today will affect the price you can get for your home down the road. Wood floors last a long time and add value to a home.
These are a few of the benefits of hardwood floors. We didn’t even mention the aesthetic value: hardwood floors look great. Wood grains and colors are unique and can express the “real you”.
If you can afford to pay an extra couple dollars per square foot, go with hardwood. If you have hardwoods hiding under your existing carpets, expose it to the light of day!
