Knowing how to clean hardwood floors is important because the bane of hardwood is dirt and grit, which will scratch and mark the floor if not removed promptly. As well, dust is seen more easily on wood floors than it is on linoleum or on carpet, especially in the sunlight and especially if the floor has a dark stain. Hardwood floor care, therefore, means sweeping and dusting regularly – once a week, at least, and after any event that leaves dirt and grit behind. Regular household dusting and cleaning products will cause damage, however, and you must use only products specifically designed for hardwood. Vacuuming is preferable to sweeping because it allows the dirt and dust to be pulled from between the boards, but use a vacuum with a bare floor attachment, not a beater bar, which can damage the wood.
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.
To date, there are two basic types of hardwood flooring, solid wood and engineered wood. With many variations of engineered wood floors available, choosing the correct wood floor can be at best, confusing and frustrating. Whereas the terminology associated with ”hardwood”, often results in purchasing a floor that does not fit allotted budget guidelines or installation limitations to which the floor is intended, not all hardwood floors are in-fact; ”natural hardwood”. Purchasing and installation of a wood floor not designed for a specific purpose will often lead to replacement and loss of expenditures of funds previously applied.
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.
