At Scottsdale Flooring we offer over 500 styles of natural hardwood including major manufacturers such as Shaw, Columbia, Ernest Hemingway, and Reward. Since Arizona has few problems with moisture hardwood is safe to install in most areas of your home. Hardwood flooring has become an important trend to buyers in the market and could really impress potential homebuyers that cannot be duplicated by synthetic options. It is a great option to add a different style element without the harshness of tile and the upkeep of carpet.
While some homeowners might feel like hardwood flooring is not environmentally conscious most hardwoods are raised as a sustainable resource. There are a large variety of hardwood trees with a wide range of colors and shades from deep reds to light, blonde hardwoods. This flooring can easily be transformed with rugs to create a good mix of comfort and style accents.
Hardwood flooring can last for many years if properly maintained. Always make sure furniture with sharp legs or heavy items are placed on a rubber pad to prevent denting or scratches. Animals may also cause scratching to the hardwood so it is best to regularly cut their nails. If there is a spill or any liquid spilt, it is important to wipe it up immediately to prevent it from seeping into the hardwood. Moisture can lead to the flooring drying and buckling creating uneven planks. To clean the flooring you can sweep, mop or vacuum. The vacuum head must be soft brush or felt. Do not use cleaners that include bleach, ammonia, and acid, wax, and vinegar properties.
