ImPressive Floors Inc. has two types of hardwood flooring to choose from: Solid and Engineered. The durability of solid wood floors makes it resistant to daily wear-and-tear. Wood floors radiate warmth and keep your feet at a comfortable temperature. People with sensitive allergies find that hardwood floors keep away irritating dust mites, mildew, and mold. Damp mopping and vacuuming are the only necessary steps in keeping hardwood floors clean. Additionally, wood flooring is an excellent option for small children and pets.
Hardwood flooring can be ordered as pre-finished or unfinished. Pre-finished flooring is more convenient than unfinished and sanding is not required. There is virtually no sawdust clean-up and drying time to deal with. Coatings such as lacquers and varnishes take at least a half day to dry before work can be resumed or the surface walked upon.
There are some benefits to installing unfinished wood. This particular type of wood can give a better overall seal to a project. Joints and gaps can be sealed before the finish application. A uniform seal protects against moisture, the primary enemy of wooden floors. Unfinished wood floors can be more expensive to install, but many people feel the results are well worth it.
