5 Benefits of hardwood floors

If you’re looking to change your floors, perhaps get rid of the old carpet, then now is the perfect time to consider hardwood floors. Hardwood is a timeliness and reliable choice when it comes to home or commercial floors. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, hardwood is reliable and will serve multiple needs.

Here are five other key reasons to consider going with hardwood floors:

It’s Versatile

As opposed to having to choose a color of carpet that matches the rest of your home or office, with hardwood floors, you won’t have this dilemma. No matter which shade or stain you choose, wood creates a versatile look for every type of room. In addition to different shades, there are numerous styles and finishes to choose from.

Improves Air Quality

If you suffer from severe allergies year round, you should consider hardwood floors for this reason alone. Hardwood does not have fibers, grout lines, pollen, or an emboss that traps dust. This means less pollen, animal dander, and harmful particles. Unlike carpet, you don’t have to worry about allergens. Fewer dust mites lingering also creates healthier air quality. With hardwood floors in your home or office, you’re less likely to breath in dirt particles.

Requires Less Maintenance

With less dirt, dust, and debris comes less maintenance. You’ll want to mop, vacuum or sweep at least once a week. When you go from carpet to hardwood floors, you’ll quickly learn how easy it is to clean.

Increases the Value of Your Home

The initial cost of hardwood floors is more expensive compared to other types of materials but it’s a return on your investment. If you ever decide to sell your home, its value is automatically increased given the hardwood floors. The longevity of hardwood floors is an attraction for buyers. More recently, first time home buyers are requesting tile or hardwood.   

Hardwood is Long Lasting and Durable

The longevity of hardwood is perhaps the greatest incentive. The upfront costs are well worth it. With the proper installation and grade selection, hardwood can last for generations. Your home or office will be in excellent condition, year after year, with the ageless quality of hardwood. Moreover, hardwood floors are sustainable. Since hardwood comes from natural materials, the woods used to make the floors can be replanted for future use.
