What do you need to know about solid and hardwood flooring?
The popularity of wood as a flooring material arises from its outstanding natural qualities. A long life expectancy and excellent thermal insulation are assured. Wood floors can be renovated with comparative ease after wear or neglect and will mature long after floors constructed from other materials have become unserviceable.
Solid Wood / Hardwood explained
Solid hardwood floors are made of planks milled from a single piece of timber. Solid hardwood floors were originally used for structural purposes, being installed perpendicular to the wooden support beams of a building known as joists or bearers. With the increased use of concrete as a subfloor solid wood floors are now used almost exclusively for their appearance.
Wood flooring the ultimate choice
Wood floors are the ultimate choice for hygiene, in this growing age of allergies. They leave no haven for dust nor mites and help relieve allergic sensitivities such as asthma.
A wood floor is easy to maintain and keep clean. Just a quick sweep or vacuum is all it should need.
