Although it is not recommended, you can have Bruce hardwood flooring in the bathroom of your home. This is because hardwood is not conducive to areas of the home where there is excessive moisture. The choice to use unfinished or prefinished Bruce wood flooring is a matter of personal taste. It depends on how much work you want to do to finish the floor yourself or how much time you want to spend on maintenance of the Bruce hardwood floors. There are advantages and disadvantages to both, so you can ask the Bruce experts for advice when you are selecting your hardwood flooring. Prefinished hardwood does have more advantages, such as longer finish warranties, uniform stain application in a factory setting and it is easier to keep clean.
Another force to reckon with in the prefinished hardwood line is the Hampton Series. The Hampton Solid Hardwood Flooring line features 3/4” Thick 6 – sided sealed Oak flooring that has square edged & ends just like a floor that is laid in unfinished than site finished. The 6 sided seal improves the moisture resistance in this flooring product dramatically and achieves the best square edge product on the market today. The Hampton series is available in 5 colors: Natural, Saddle, White Oak Natural, Honey & Gunstock. The color choices for the Hampton series are based off of the top 5 colors selling in the country today by designers & builders. The Six Sided seal is a feature ONLY available in the Hampton series anywhere in the world and is provided by Ten Oaks of Virginia. The finish on this hardwood product is a UV Cured urethane as well as aluminum oxide on the top of the product, and is pre-sealed on all six sides. The Hampton Series is a green product that is produced from Appalachian Oak and can be sanded & finished for a lifetime. The Hampton Series like the rest of the Impressions hardwood flooring line features a 50 year warranty for finish and a lifetime structural warranty. The Hampton Series is produced by a AHMI Member which is a sustainable hardwood forest product. This product is available in a 2 ” & 3 ” wide product.
The first thing that a person notice when they enter a certain home is the floor. In this regard, it is extremely vital that we maintain our flooring on its best condition. One of the biggest improvements that most household owners do to their flooring is to refinish them. It is also vital that any damage should be repaired back in order to prevent early damage on the hardwood. We can also use absorbent rugs especially in areas where frequent water or liquid spills is always unavoidable. With proper care and maintenance, our hardwood floors will retain their beauty for a long time.
The most prominent element that makes hardwood become unclean is dirt and grit. If these elements are not properly removed, they can cause scratch or marks on your flooring. To clean your hardwood flooring is as easy as sweeping and dusting or a regular basis. Daily sweeping is not also advisable because they can cause damage to the hardwood. To sweep the floor at least once a week is the best thing that can be done except of course when there are especial occasions that need proper cleaning. It is better to use vacuum cleaners compared to sweeping and scrubbing. If the flooring that you have in your home is made with shining or glossy finish, you can use a damp mop because the hardwood is protected with either oil or wax. When using a damp mop, make sure that there is no water spills being drifted on the floor. Some people also make use of neutral pH hardwood floor cleaner while cleaning or mopping the floor.
