Wood Floor Tips
All Hardwood Floors regardless of what type of finish, must be maintained properly to keep the beauty long lasting. Every floor must be dust mopped, vacuumed or swept with a soft bristle broom as often as necessary, to remove grit and dust from the surface. Walking on dusty or dirty floor is the fastest way to damage a finish.
Use walk off mats or carpet runners
at all exterior entrances. This will capture much of the harmful dirt before it even reaches the hardwood floor. Shake out, wash or vacuum mats and area rugs frequently.
Floor protector pads
of soft felt or similar material should be placed on the bottoms of the legs of the furniture. Floor protectors must be kept clean of grit and periodically replaced.
experience the most traffic in a home. To prevent premature wear of the floor, place an area rug in front of the sink and stove area. Shake out or vacuum the rugs frequently.
Hardwood flooring offers a wider selection of sizes, colors and species and finishes. You can get solid hardwood floors or engineered hardwood floors which are several plies of wood that a glued and laminated together. A popular wood floor is hand scraped hardwood flooring, which is created by hand using wood scraping tools to give an old wood appearance to new wood.
Laminate wood flooring is an engineered wood floor that is constructed totally from wood plies laminated together. Laminate floors can give the realistic look of ceramic or stone tiles without the need to clean soiled grout joints. Laminate floors come in either rectangular planks or square tiles. Laminate floors are also far less costly to install. If you are really concerned with the upkeep of a wood floor than laminate flooring may be a good choice for your home. Laminate floors are sold at home centers like Home Depot and Lowes.
Ceramic tiles and ceramic tile flooring
Ceramic tiles are available in a wide range of colors and styles and can be integrated into almost any home decor. Small ceramic tiles, such as mosaic tiles, tend to look better in small rooms especially half bathrooms. Ceramic tile grout comes in different colors and you should select a color that complements your tile. The right color grout and ceramic tile will create a beautiful floor patter. Installing ceramic tile is a multi-step process that does require some skill and patience. Ceramic tile needs to be installed on a stable subfloor. It is best to lay the tile pattern out, starting in the center of the room, working in a straight grid pattern.
