In many homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you will find that hardwood flooring is practically a given. Maybe it’s our region’s naturally rustic style, but the look of hardwood floors is always so complimentary to any space. But beyond the stylistic qualities of hardwood flooring (and there are many!), there are so many functional reasons why they’re a worthwhile addition to your home in our area. Here are only a few…
1. Their Durability
If you have kids, pets, or any other reason that would make having carpeting a risk, a hardwood floor is the type of flooring you need. They can for sure take a beating – hardwood floors are known for their durability, and have a practical lifetime guarantee with every installation. If over the years your floors have a few marks or scratches here and there, all you have to do is refinish them, which is an easy, inexpensive process that will only need to be done sporadically over the course of your time in your home.
2. Easy Maintenance
On top of their unmatchable durability and quality, you will be able to keep them in their best shape with ease, as they are so easy to maintain. Hardwoods are both stain- and spill-resistant, so the periodic accident is no cause for panic, or having to immediately call in the carpet cleaners. Again, with children, that can be a lifesaver! For cleaning, all you have to do is sweep or vacuum any debris that has gathered under couches or in corners, and then simply wipe them up with a mop or other cleaning tool. Hardwood floors are sealed very well, so you do not have to worry about cleaning products reacting poorly to the finish. However, it would be wise to use hardwood flooring-focused products, as they will be best for the installation.
3. Sustainable and Sanitary
If you’re someone who always wants to be living the most sustainable life possible, you don’t have to stop when it comes to your flooring. Hardwood floors are the best choice in terms of sustainability because they are made from natural materials, as opposed to synthetic ones. For instance, in much standard carpeting today, many times there is a chemical component added to increase durability, one that is harsh on the environment. Not only that, but carpeting can trap debris and allergens like no other type of flooring. If you are an allergy sufferer, it’s all the more reason to invest in hardwoods. They cannot trap materials like that, which will make your home a lot more comfortable.
