If you are remodeling your home or just looking for a new flooring option, we want to let you know some benefits of hardwood flooring. Plymouth residents may know many of these features, or there may be some they haven’t thought about. When choosing new flooring, it’s good to know the pros and cons of each option. So here are some pros for hardwood floors.
1. High quality look
Hardwood floors offer warmth, beauty and the value of wood, which never goes out of style. They can complement a traditional home or fit in a more modern style home. Hardwood floors also seem to bring the look of spaciousness wherever they are installed.
2. Strength and durability
High quality hardwood floors that are kiln-dried, manufactured, installed and finished to certain standards can last for generations. They are able to stand up to active work spaces and heavy foot traffic. Quality hardwood flooring is tough, hard-wearing and have long-term durability.
3. Long-term investment
Hardwood floors seem to have a timeless appeal. Many other flooring options like carpet and linoleum can go out of style, but hardwood remains constant. In fact, hardwood floors can increase the value of your property. Since it lasts so long and does not go out of style, it’s a great long-term investment that can actually become a strong resale argument. The flooring also seems to enable faster sales and bring higher prices at time of resale.
4. Easy to clean
Hardwood floors are easy to keep clean since they don’t accumulate a lot of dirt, dust or debris. A weekly cleaning procedure of sweeping, vacuuming or mopping will keep the floors looking great.
If the kids happen to drag mud in with their shoes, a damp mop will remove the mess with ease. This is definitely not the case with carpet.
5. Healthy indoor air quality
Hardwood does not trap dust, pollen, particles, dander and other allergens like carpet. Therefore, this flooring provides an overall healthier environment. Hardwood floors are definitely beneficial for people who suffer from allergies.
