Benefits of Pre-finished Hardwood Flooring

Benefits of Hardwood Floors
Hardwood floors endow a home with all of the natural elements of beauty, ambiance, and quality. The exquisite look and superb quality of hardwood floors will not only enhance your personal design in any room but will also add lasting value for many years to come.  Hardwood floors are among the top selling features of any home and they increase the overall value of a home.  Choosing hardwood floors is an investment in your family’s future.

Ease of Maintenance
These aren’t your father’s wood floors!  Today’s technology in hardwood floor stains and finishes are superior to anything before.  Maintaining your wood floors is easier than ever and only takes sweeping/vacuuming and periodic use of a wood floor cleaning product.  Using the right floor cleaning product is important because it will ensure that your wood finish is optimized and lasting, so consult your manufacturer, installer, or wood floor expert.  Please see our Cleaning your floors page to see more details.

Ecological
When it comes to choosing a flooring, hardwood floors are the environmentally green option.  Hardwood floors are made from a renewable natural resource and are recyclable as well, opposed to non-renewable materials in many carpets and linoleums.  Take a look at our section on The Green and Sustainable Flooring Choice to find out more about how hardwoods are environmentally friendly.  It is becoming more common to find that wood from antique structures such as shipyards, warehouses, barns, and mills are being salvaged and re-purposed into a unique category of flooring called reclaimed hardwood floors. 

Affordable
Compare hardwood flooring to other flooring options and then think about how long hardwood floors will last as well as their quality in 30 or 40 years.  You will find that the while today’s hardwood floors are affordable, they will pay you back over the years in sustained quality and durability.  When your neighbor spending hundreds of dollars replacing their carpets, you can kick your feet up and relax, knowing that your investment is paying you back with lasting quality and timeless style.

Variety
When deciding on your style and room décor, you will find that there are endless possibilities.  More species of wood, stains, and finishes are available today than ever before.  You can have a wood floor that enhances the personality of any room and offer rich quality that is unique to hardwood flooring. 

Hypoallergenic
Hardwoods do not collect dust, molds, or other allergens that may lead to respiratory problems.  Many leading health associations recommend hardwood floors to reduce the risk of airborne allergens.  Having a floor that looks good is important, but your family’s health is priceless.  Hardwood floors are a healthy choice.
