Choosing the correct hardwood floor wax is best determined by the composition of the hardwood material installed. Using an unapproved wax with harsh cleaners creates counter- productive results damaging hardwood flooring material surfaces, of which may become permanent. All floor waxes and cleaners are not designed for all wood floors. New wood floors are often sealed with urethane, polyurethane or polyacrylic sealers designed to protect the top finished surface. Application of an inappropriate or unapproved hardwood wax/cleaner combination will damage the manufacturer applied sealer dulling the luster, leaving steaks that are clearly noticeable. Seek out professional experienced advice when selecting a hardwood floor wax and cleaner designed to protect and beautify the particular hardwood material installed prior to application of any such substance.
When selecting the kind of material used to cover your floor, the choice of hardwood is always at the top of the list. Natural wood elicits an instant feeling of warmth and hominess to the environment that vinyl, stone or carpet just aren't able to match. Solid hardwood floors in Vancouver are a special favorite of homeowners as a statement of style that compliments the Canadian mystique of the North Country. But when deciding whether to go with all natural or engineered hardwood flooring it's important to consider more than which material is the greatest status symbol. Solid flooring in Vancouver has always been the prime choice of the regions most expensive homes and offices because of its rich texture and unique grain patterns. But all natural wood floors have many down sides that can out weigh the benefits. On the other side of the debate, there are many advantages to choosing engineered hardwood flooring over solid hardwood and not all of them centers on price alone.
What is the moisture content of the flooring? Moisture content is a very important factor when installing hardwood flooring. You need the flooring to be at a proper moisture level for your home/interior climate which is typically between 6-9% moisture content. Installing hardwood flooring with a moisture content that is too high will cause spaces in the floor when the flooring dries out, and installing a hardwood floor that is too dry will result in cupping when the flooring picks up moisture. If the retailer selling you flooring does not have a moisture meter and can check the moisture for you then I would suggest you run. The majority of people selling hardwood flooring know very little about wood and moisture, if they don't even have a moisture meter, that is a sign that they are not professional and know nothing or very little about hardwood flooring and shouldn't be selling it.
Natural Variety in Color – Since the Asian walnut hardwood exhibits a naturally wide variety in color, it's better to request for two sample boards so you can envision how the finished floors will look like. Some individuals expect a certain level of uniformity in their flooring, while others enjoy the distinctive color gradients that Asian walnut hardwood flooring usually exhibit. For a more comprehensive peek at how the finished product will appear, you can try buying a box of boards and go about arranging them on your floor. This way, you should be more or less sure on whether or not you will be using Asia walnut hardwood for your home. If you decided otherwise, you will have only spent a fraction of the actual cost of flooring for the entire project.
