Hardwood Floors You’ll Love For A Lifetime
Add style, warmth, and value to your home with beautiful hardwood floors from Face of Wood Flooring. Our hardwood floors are available in solid and engineered hardwood, and a wide variety of colors, styles and wood species. Whether you’re interested in a traditional look, like a classic oak wood floor or something more modern and contemporary, we have everything you need to get your flooring project done.
Solid Hardwood Flooring
Solid hardwood is exactly as the name implies. It’s solid wood all the way through. Solid wood floors can be sanded and refinished numerous times to give them a fresh look. They’re known for their timeless beauty, durability and the value they can add to any home. Solid hardwood is great for high traffic areas and rooms on the first or second floors where there’s limited moisture. You can purchase your solid hardwood floors either prefinished or unfinished. Prefinished hardwood floors have a coating that protects them and they’re ready to install right out of the box, and it’s the most affordable and most used by our customers. Unfinished hardwoods allow you to choose the stain color you want for your floors.
Engineered Hardwood Flooring
Engineered hardwood floors have a solid wood top and bottom, but the middle or core layers are made of plywood. This type of construction makes engineered hardwood less likely to expand and better suitable for installation over radiant heating systems, concrete slabs and basements. Just like solid hardwood floors, engineered hardwood floors come in a wide variety of styles, colors and wood species options. Engineered wood floors can also be sanded and refinished – just not as many times as solid hardwood flooring.
How Do I Clean My Hardwood Floors?
No matter what type of hardwood flooring you choose, proper care and maintenance will help them look beautiful even longer. First off, don’t let the dirt and dust collect. At least once a week, you’ll want to go over your hardwood floors with a broom or dust mop to pick up any dirt, dust, hair or pet dander. If you’re using a vacuum, make sure it’s set to ‘wood floors’ so that you’re not beating up your floors and damaging them in the process.
If your floors are in need of a deeper cleaning, use a wood floor cleaner. Follow the instructions for diluting the cleaner in water. Clean the floors with a damp mop, going with the grain. Then, go back over the floor with a clean, damp mop to remove any excess cleaner. Finish by drying the floor completely with a dry towel. Remember, leftover standing water could damage your wood floors.
