Frequently Asked Questions about hardwood floors

Are Hardwood Floors Worth it?

Yes. The ROI for hardwood floors is between 70-80 percent. With proper care, a hardwood floor can last many years.

Can We Install Hardwood Flooring If We Have a Dog or Other Pets? 

Though big dogs can damage hardwood floors, it is not impossible for hardwood floors and dogs to co-exist peacefully. If you have your heart set on hardwood and have a pet, consider these tips:

  • It is best not to put the pet’s food or water bowl directly on the wood flooring
  • Keep the pet’s claws trimmed and clean up any messes immediately.
  • Look for a floor with more character to help hide some of the damage pets can cause
  • Vacuum and dust mop frequently to keep grit and grime to a minimum

Is it Safe to Use Hardwood Flooring in a Kitchen?

Hardwood is very durable and with proper care can outlast most floor coverings. Taking precautions such as cleaning spills as they occur, keeping rugs in high traffic areas such as in front of your sink, refrigerator and dishwasher, using felt cushions on chair legs and follow the manufacturer’s maintenance recommendations, your floor should look beautiful for years to come.

Can I Use a Steam Mop on Hardwood Floors?

It is not recommended to use a steam mop on a wood product as it can leave too much moisture on the surface which can, in time, ruin your floor.  There are steam mops that claim to be recommended for wood floors. Be sure that their warranties specify that it is guaranteed not to ruin your hardwood floor.

Can I Expect My Wood Floor to Have Color Variations?

Yes. Every piece of wood is unique. A natural hardwood board can have a unique color depending on the species, the location of the tree, when it was felled, and how long it was stored.  It is also worth mentioning here that hardwood changes color over time. While most species darken, others lighten over time.
