Why You Should Choose Hardwood Floors for Your OBX Home

Nov 21st, 20101 Comment

If you have little experience with hardwood floors, you may know only of their beauty.  There are, however, many benefits associated with hardwood flooring.

Today we will discuss some of the benefits of hardwood floors:

  • Hypoallergenic – Hardwood floors are easy to clean and provide a solid surface, so they don’t trap or accumulate allergens such as dust, pollen and dust mites.  This cannot be said for many types of flooring.
  • Maintenance – Hardwood floors are easy to maintain.  Regular cleaning with a soft broom or vacuum and occasional dry mopping are all that is needed to keep your hardwood floor looking shiny and new.
  • Durability – With proper maintenance, hardwood floors can last a lifetime.  A proper finish resists stains and scratches, while the resiliency of wood helps to prevent damage due to impacts.
  • Variety – The choices of wood available for hardwood floors is quite extensive.  Whether you want classic or contemporary, dark or light, solid or grained, there is a hardwood floor that is perfect for you.
  • Style – Other types of flooring have made great progress in the realms of beauty and fashion, but nothing can ever come close to the outstanding and timeless style of hardwood floors.
  • Repair – In the unlikely event of damage to your hardwood floor, repair is not a major chore.  Refinishing your floor will take care of most damage, and replacing a board or two covers just about everything else.  You will not need to replace all of your flooring because of a little damage, as you would with some other flooring choices.
  • Money – First, the durability of hardwood floors make them cheaper than other options over the lifetime of the floor (decades!).  Second, if you should choose to sell your home a hardwood floor increases the value of your home far beyond the money invested.

As you can see, hardwood floors are a great choice for your home.  Clean, easy to care for, beautiful, and a great investment are the benefits you will enjoy.
