The most important reason of all is hardwood flooring’s warmth, character, and rich, natural beauty. It enhances the decor of any room, complements any furniture, and offers a variety of colors and patterns to add timeless beauty and value to the house.
Because of its renewability, hardwood flooring can actually cost a lot less than other types of flooring. If it’s not hardwood, you’re generally left with one option when flooring gets worn out: you replace it. Wood floors can be restored and they maintain their value over time.
Ease Of Maintenance
Today’s wood floors are very easy to maintenance! New technology in stains and finishes call for regular cleaning that takes sweeping and/or vacuuming, with occasional use of a professional wood floor cleaning product. Wood can be cleaned more thoroughly than carpet, which can trap germs, dust, allergens, and insects in its fibers.
Hardwood floors add value. Wood looks more expensive than carpet and is perceived as denoting a well-constructed home. Hardwood floors mean faster home sales. In a national survey of more than a thousand real estate agents, 90% said hardwood floors influence how fast a home sells!
