The most popular flooring option we sell here at Floor Coverings International Waukesha is hardwood. Waukesha homeowners just love the look and feel of hardwood floors. Can you blame them? The right hardwood can add timeless warmth to any home in the greater Waukesha, Brookfield, Milwaukee area. Here are some of the many benefits of hardwood flooring to help you decide if it is right for your home:
Hardwood is one of the strongest and longest lasting flooring options. Every hardwood species is different, with advantages and disadvantages. White oak, for example, is strong because of its closed-pore cell structure, making it a great option for busy families and pet owners. On the other hand, softer hardwoods like maple and pine require extra precausions. Regardless of the species you choose, solid hardwood can be refinished up to ten times. Make sure you sweep and vacuuming regularly, and you can expect your hardwood to last a lifetime.
For those of us who suffer from allergies, hardwood is a great option—even just the occasional seasonal sniffle! Unlike carpeting and tile, hardwood floors do not trap allergens. Pet dander and pollen will collect on the surface, however, which is why it’s important to vacuum regularly.
When you choose hardwood, your options are limitless. Once you decide on a species, the next step is to decide on a width, style, stain, and finish. Plus every piece of hardwood is unique, which means that your hardwood floor will be yours alone.
