For most people the number one concern for flooring isn't the price of purchase but more about the cost of its maintenance. The cost of preserving a solid floor over engineered hardwood flooring equates to a combination of time, labor and money. Solid hardwood flooring needs special care to keep their luster and appearance. Natural wood scratches, fades with age and is prone to warping and even mold should it be exposed to water and moisture for extended periods. After a few years, when the natural wood has weathered a bit, it will be necessary to have the floors resurfaced. This usually involves sanding the wood surface and then re-staining. Unfortunately natural solid wood floors, because of environmental regulations, can't be layered with a coat of polyurethane which could protect it from scratches. Engineered floors is pre-coated which makes it more resistant to scratches and provides for greater longevity. Because engineered flooring is still made with real natural wood, it can be resurfaced if it becomes deeply scratched and its' construction allows it to be used in more highly trafficked areas that may be susceptible to moisture and heat like the kitchen or bathroom. Unlike natural hardwood, engineered flooring would warp or cup when exposed to these elements. This type of flooring is constructed so that their inner core is laid in opposite directions making it immune to atmospheric assaults that would normally cause it to enlarge or shrink creating all kinds of problems.

The last thing that a dog owner needs to worry about is urine stains. As mentioned before, vigilance with spilled liquids becomes the number one priority with a hardwood floor. If a dog manages to ”sneak” a urine puddle past you, this can be extremely detrimental to the hardwood floor. The detriment is twofold. The first aspect of a dog's urine stain is that a long-term stain is going to smell. Wood is porous and will absorb the urine deeply into itself. The second is that the stain will be dark, sometimes black. If your hardwood is darker in color, then this won't be such a problem. But if your hardwood floor is light in color, there will be a dark stain on your floor. There are many different products available for this kind of issue. If the floor is really light, drops of hydrogen peroxide left overnight are great stain lifters. But this isn't a solution that should be applied to darker hardwood floors. In short, you'll have to pay even closer attention to your dog's comings and goings. Sometimes those rugs and mats that you have left around high traffic areas are housing liquid (possibly even urine), and it is good to be vigilant about checking them. The fact of the matter is that maintaining a hardwood floor with a dog is a lot of work. You will have to pay close attention to your dog's comings and goings as well as his nail length and whether or not he needs to be groomed. You will also need to stay vigilant with sweeping, mopping and vacuuming. The floor will definitely take some damage as a result of your dog, but it will also take damage as a result of you too. Hardwood floors can be maintained with a dog in the household, but there needs to be a deeper consideration of the potential damage a dog can bring.

The cost of hardwood flooring is usually higher if you source them from home improvement establishments and local dealers. The latter has the advantage of possible price negotiations and typically offering free samples. Liquidators and flooring wholesalers both offer competitive prices. However, the latter's supply of hardwood flooring cannot be guaranteed and no warranty is usually offered. Floorboard wholesalers offer hardwood flooring at more affordable rates and are more reliable stocked. Furthermore, most will ship free samples to prospective buyers. Make sure to compare suppliers to be able to get the best deal possible.

The biggest problem with hardwood floors is getting them scratched by the demands that simply living on them causes. You must take care when moving things around on hardwood floors. When living on hardwood floors, do not drag anything across them when moving furniture or other heavy objects. Use large area rugs under heavy furniture, and keep pads under furniture legs, as these will move when sat upon or brushed up against. These will dig into the wood if left unprotected. Large dogs with toenails that click as they walk can do a lot of damage to hardwoods. Even small dogs and cats can damage hardwood floors. If their toenails are clicking on your hardwoods, it is time to clip them back. Have a door mat so people can clean the soles of their shoes before they walk on the hardwoods.
