1. IT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING
Nothing can compete with hardwood floors when it comes to pure natural aesthetics. Reminiscent of a log cabin, this particular type of wood flooring is not only folksy and inviting but also ruggedly stylish. It will imbue your home with an unmistakable sense of warmth and tranquility.
2. ADDS VALUE TO YOUR HOME
Right now, hardwood floors are in high demand among homeowners, so installing wood flooring can make your home worth a whole lot more on the housing market. According to one study, the addition of hardwood floors raises a home's value by as much as 5 percent. Another survey of real estate agents found that houses with hardwood floors sell quicker and homebuyers are willing to pay up to 10 percent more.
3. EASY TO CLEAN
Taking care of a hardwood floor is a breeze. Unlike carpeting, a hardwood floor doesn't absorb stains or accumulated dust. Upkeep is simple and easy. A hardwood floor can be kept looking spotless by sweeping daily and vacuuming once a week. Other recommended maintenance includes spot cleaning with a damp mop twice a month and applying hardwood cleaner monthly.
4. IMPROVED INDOOR AIR QUALITY
Carpets are like sponges soaking up indoor air pollutants, such as dust mites, fine particulate matter, animal dander, pollen, and allergens. Many of these make their way deep into the carpet fibers. They're constantly released into the air and never fully removed by vacuuming even with a special filter. In fact, vacuuming often just kicks indoor air pollutants up in the air. Tile and laminate floors also capture pollutants in their grout lines and embossing.
If you have allergies or just have concerns about indoor air quality, wood flooring is the way to go. With hardwood floors, it's easy to manage dust and other pollutants with regular sweeping.
5. STRONGER AND LAST LONGER
With proper care and maintenance, wood floors can keep your home looking great for decades. Carpets fade and get stained over time. This isn't a problem with hardwood floors. These surfaces are solid and hard, which makes them highly resistant to scratches and dents. With regular cleaning using a recommended cleaner, wood flooring will continue to look as brilliant as the day you installed it for years.
Hardwood floors are durable, beautiful, easy to maintain, and massively increase the value of your home, which makes them a smart and cost-effective investment for any homeowner.
