Hardwood VS Carpet

Carpeting seems economical, right? Actually, carpeting lasts between seven and ten years under normal residential use. Hardwood floors can last a lifetime and are always in style. Here's a 40-year comparison test you can use when trying to decide between carpeting or wood flooring. Say you installed a hardwood floor. It would typically last for 40 years. During that same period, you probably will have to install new carpeting eight or nine times. At that rate, the hardwood flooring costs less than the cumulative cost of all the carpeting you would have to install. Another thing you need to consider is the cleanliness of your home. A large company that recycles old carpeting has stated that the majority of used carpeting it receives for processing contains at least 38% of its weight in household dirt. The families who owned this old carpeting were walking, or crawling on dirt. Hardwood flooring is simply cleaner. If it is dirty, the dirt is plainly visible, not hidden within carpet fibers. When comparing hardwood flooring to carpet, hardwood flooring is be your best buy and most solid investment.

Every so often it’s important to give your wooden flooring some care and attention to keep it looking at its best. We provide a range of services that will freshen up your floor and help protect it over the years to come.

Floor protection
Hardwood flooring is a gift from nature so it’s important to give it the respect it deserves. Just like our skin, over time, wood shows signs of age if it’s not properly looked after or exposed to harsh chemicals. Every day our floors are exposed to dirt and germs, scuffmarks and scrapes from toys and stiletto shoes. It is important to take the time to maintain your hardwood floor, using the right kind of cleaning products. Having it regularly protected professionally will pay dividends in the long run.

We can offer a range of protective coatings to protect your flooring from wear and tear, but it’s important to take steps of your own to keep it looking good for as long as possible and ensure the correct maintenance of your hardwood floors. Think of your flooring not just as something you walk on, but as an important accessory to the rest of your home. Be careful when moving furniture, use gentle cleaning products that don’t strip away delicate oils and ask people to leave their shoes at the door when they enter. Where possible encourage the children not to draw or paint or to run their cars across the floor as this can scratch and dent the floor.  

Humidity
Like water, humidity can play havoc with wooden flooring. When we install your floor we’ll ask you to turn your thermostat to a regular temperature and try to keep it at around the same level throughout the year. Extreme changes in temperature can cause wood to expand and contract. A high increase in humidity can result in an expansion of up to two inches and a severe drop can lead to gaps between boards. We’re able to help should either of these happen but it’s advisable to keep the humidity in your home at a reasonable temperature throughout the year if possible to avoid any unnecessary costs and inconvenience.

Temperature
Like humidity, the temperature in your home can have a significant impact on the longevity and condition of your hardwood flooring. If you can, choose a temperature that works for you and try not to change it too much throughout the year.
