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.

Considered to be stronger than natural wood flooring, engineered wood floors offer the homeowner the option of installation directly over concrete where natural wood flooring is not recommended. With the multiple layers of engineered hardwood pressed and glued together in opposite directions, under extreme pressures, the dimensional stability of engineered wood floors is a superior product for installation on un-even floors, transferring a dull and inefficient room into a room with charm and character.
”Solid” hardwood flooring is traditionally cut from a log in an unfinished plank form with tongue and groove milled on all sides. Ranging from 5/16” to ¾” in thickness, ”solid” floors are typically available in various widths and lengths. Due to the sensitivity of natural ”solid” hardwood from humidity and moisture, natural solid wood floors are normally installed at or above ground level. The natural beauty of wood grains found in solid hardwoods is both appealing and alluring with finishes that may be completed upon installation in the home or factory finished with a pre-determined choice of unlimited finishes to select from. ”Solid” hardwood flooring is as one may expect the most expensive of all wood floor selections. It is not uncommon for ”solid” hardwood floors to exceed two to three times the cost over other floor selections and in most cases is out of reach of those on restricted budget guidelines. Available in a variety of North American wood species, ”solid” hardwood floors are noted for durability and overall beauty that will last a lifetime.
