Tips for your hardwood flooring installation

A hardwood flooring installation is exciting, indeed. Hardwood's natural, long-lasting beauty adds warmth and charm to a room. It also comes with many benefits.

Of course, you want a high-quality product. That's only part of the story, though, because you also need an excellent installation and proper maintenance.

The importance of a quality installation

We do things a little differently here. Our installers, not salespeople, go to your home to take measurements.

This way, they can talk to you about goals and challenges and spot potential problems.

That way, they head off problems with your wood flooring installation by installing accordingly.??

Easy maintenance

The most important thing to remember is that wood can be damaged by excess water. So, wipe spills immediately and avoid steam cleaners (even if the label says ?safe for wood?).

Also, dust mop regularly (daily, if possible) so dirt and sand won't embed and scratch?vacuum once a week (removing beater bars) to pick up what dust mopping missed.

Clean and polish them a few times a year and refinish them every six years. If you have questions, please come to our hardwood flooring store in Wilsonville, OR, or Portland, OR.

Other benefits of a wood floor

1.Cost-effectiveness. Since hardwood flooring lasts for decades, costly repair and replacement costs are eliminated.

2.Versatility for any decor. Just sand and stain another color if you need a change.

3.Real estate value-adding: You'll see 70-80% of the cost reflected in your property values.
