Posted on: March 17th, 2020 by wfp_admin No Comments

4 Ways to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home. Renew indoor air, reduce the presence of VOCs: a few tips to improve indoor air quality for better health.

Did you know that the indoor environment of your home has an impact on your health? In fact; the degree of air pollution is two to five times higher indoors than out. Here are some tips to improve the indoor air quality (IAQ); of your home by drastically cutting down on pollutants.

Ways to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home

1. Create regular air currents

Create an air current for 10 minutes twice a day. Ventilate spaces to renew the air in your home; especially when running the dishwasher and after a bath or shower; when humidity can set in. To make things easier, you can install a whole-house ventilation system; a device that continuously renews the air in your home. This way every room will be permanently ventilated year round.

2. Insulate cold surfaces

To reduce condensation on your windows and walls, you can install a foam sheath around pipes; choose energy-efficient windowpanes and opt for insulating materials. This will minimize the risk of humidity and improve the air quality of your home.

3. Choose VOC-free materials

Extremely toxic for air quality and thus for your health, VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are emitted primarily by cleaning products and construction materials. Most VOCs are carcinogenic, which is why it’s imperative you avoid them. To do so, choose hygienic eco-smart materials. Mercier Flooring has developed the Greenguard-certified Mercier Generations finish from 100% pure soy oil. These products are certified only after undergoing a rigorous third-party evaluation of their ingredients.

4. Avoid certain cleaning products

Choose biodegradable; environmentally friendly products. Mercier has a line of specially designed products to clean and protect your floor; without reducing the air quality in your home. Read about these products below or contact Wood Floor Planet for more information.

Wood Floor: What causes squeaky floors?

Posted on: March 7th, 2020 by wfp_admin No Comments

Wood Floor is stunning, but one of the downsides with it is that it usually makes noises; especially as they get older.

This is absolutely normal for a natural; organic product like hardwood flooring as it reacts to the environment that’s always changing around it during its lifespan.
Eventually, this leads to the floors squeaking, popping, or crackling.
Even with properly installed hardwood flooring, you will still notice a squeak.

What causes this? What can you do about it? This will help you better understand the noises your floors make.

Hardwood Floors

Engineered Hardwood Flooring Trend

These days, people are starting to look towards engineered hardwood flooring rather than the traditional hardwood flooring.
One of the biggest reasons for this is that engineered hardwood flooring offers better stability; meaning that you won’t have many of the same noise complaints as you would with traditional hardwood flooring.
However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that engineered hardwood flooring is completely immune to these sounds.

What Causes Noisy Flooring?

A lot of this noise actually comes from the subfloor underneath the hardwood, not the hardwood itself. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including missing joist hangers, missing nails, nails missing the joists, or improperly installed/poorly nailed subfloor sheathing. Wood floor installers generally don’t check or address these issues unless it was specifically requested in the contract.

Subfloor Flatness

One reason why engineered hardwood flooring may squeak, pop, or crunch is because the subfloor flatness is off. Typically the flatness needs to be about ¼” in 10’ or 3/16” in 6’, so when the flatness isn’t within this “tolerance” range, the flooring will move and make noises.

Subfloor Materials

Another reason is because of the material the subfloor is made of. OSB subflooring is an excellent subflooring option, but there are different grades of performance that can depend on how well it holds up. This subflooring is prone to swelling after it has been exposed to many wet/dry cycles. Swelling is a problem because it causes a decrease in fiber density.

Subfloor Installation

The installation methods chosen for the hardwood floor also plays a factor in how noisy it is. The flooring needs to be properly attached to the subflooring, otherwise you are going to run into hardwood flooring that makes a lot more noise than you want it to. If you don’t use the proper fasteners or enough fasteners, you will run into this problem. By using trigger-activated flooring nailers, too much pressure may be used and cause the nails to blow out. This will also lead to squeaky floorboards.


What this all means is that noisy floorboards can mostly be avoided through proper installation as well as using the right tools and materials. The professionals that you use to install hardwood flooring need to take a great deal of care to ensure that they do the job right. If you don’t notice any issues like any vertical movement of the boards, chances are that the hardwood floor is fine and the noises that it’s making is completely normal. As annoying as the sounds may be, it is common sometimes for it just to make a slight noise.

Floating a floor over existing floors

Posted on: May 7th, 2018 by wfp_admin No Comments

On this conversation we will be talking about floating a new floor over the existing floor, the pros and the cons. On the last blog we talked about the pros and cons of installing an engineered floor over the existing floor; but in this conversation I want to cover some details that may save you from some headaches installing a floating floor over the existing floor.


Number one; you must make sure that the existing floor is properly hooked to the subfloor or concrete substrate; If not, take your time to review the existing floor and solve all the problems of the vulnerable and loose areas to avoid as much movement and noise as possible.

If it is a parquet that exists; Take your time to review each tile and make sure the tile is securely fastened to the subfloor or substrate.

When floating on a floor, most manufacturers do not recommend installing in the rooms without installing a transition piece on the door; This type of restriction is a bit of a detour for me.

Secondly; they do not recommend installing any cabinet or built-in accessories on a floating floor; so first I would have to install cabinets in their built-in accessories and then install the floor up to the cabinet or the built-in accessories; and it may require a small molding depending on how tight the floor installer can reach the cabinets.

Also, keep in mind that most manufacturers only give 1/8 “of tolerance to irregularity; So what that means is that your existing floor should be fairly uniform and flat; and in my opinion; Most of the time, 1/8 “of an inch is impossible.

Now for a couple of professionals; It will save you some money by not having to remove the existing floor where it can be expensive; and second, it can be less expensive to install a floating floor because you will not need the expensive adhesives that would be needed to install an engineered floor; but keep in mind that you will still need a lower layer to place under your floor; but, only in most cases. In cases it is still less expensive.

I always advised to read the instructions and the guidelines that the manufacturer of floors provides in each box; it’s extremely important, it’s more important than getting the information on the Internet or anywhere else; even if the information is 100% correct.

Installing an engineered floor over the existing engineered floor

Posted on: April 25th, 2018 by wfp_admin No Comments
Wood Floor Planet Inc. Showroom at 425 W 46th St. New York, NY 10036 tel: 212-252-3838.

Wood Floor Planet Inc. Showroom at 425 W 46th St. New York, NY 10036. Phone: 212-252-3838.

We have always been asked, “Can I install wood floors designed on my existing wood floors”? And our first answer to this question; what we would always say, is: “follow the guidelines and instructions of the manufacturer”.

 However, with our experience of more than 30 years; We have some nuggets of wisdom in this area.

Situations to discuss to Installing:

The number one is that; we always recommend that existing wood floors be removed and that you start with a clean slate if the budget allows; the reason is or, if I must say, the reason is that it is number one; you have to make sure that the existing floor is securely fastened to the concrete substrate or the plywood sub-floor.

We are not talking about installing on vinyl flooring; vinyl or PVC cork, (that will be a different discussion), but most likely if the floor has been there for a prolonged period of time; there has been some vulnerability in the stability of the adherence to the subfloor and the existing floor; whether the existing adhesive starts to fail; or simply the nails of the existing floor begin to loosen.

We never really know the extent of this vulnerability to 100%, therefore; if your new installation is installed on one of these scenarios; There are likely to be problems with your new floor in the future.

Another reason why it is not desirable to install a new floor on the existing floor is due to the contraction and expansion; your new floor will expand and contract according to the existing floor (again, this is one of our multiple experiences in the last three years). decades The best solution for this situation is to install a rubber subfloor or a subfloor subfloor on the existing floor for its new installation.

There are other factors that we can discuss about the situation; but we will go for the next discussion. For more information and inquiries, contact Wood Floor Planet Inc. at 212-252-3838 or 201-330-0909.

Parquet Floors: What Every Homeowner Should Know About

Posted on: November 13th, 2015 by wfp_admin No Comments

Parquet floors are among the most popular wood flooring materials in residential structures for good reasons. These wooden floors are known for their durability, strength and stability as well as beauty; especially with the various colors, patterns and textures available.

Of course, only the best in quality parquet flooring products will deliver on these enviable qualities – and this is where Solidfloor comes in. Solidfloor has a wide range of parquet flooring products available in terms of wood used patterns applied, and grading. Every need and want in parquetry will be addressed by Solidfloor yet another; reason why it is the most reliable supplier of wood flooring solutions.

Parquet floors, Solidfloor, wood flooring

First, let’s talk about the basics. Parquetry refers to the geometric arrangement (i.e., mosaic) of wood pieces to achieve a decorative effect while also providing for the benefits of durability; strength and stability expected in wooden floors. Parquet patterns are completely angular and geometrical in triangles; squares, and lozenges; natural and curved shapes are the domain of marquetry.

Parquet floors are classified in several ways including composition; wood material, and grade. These should be considered; when choosing the right parquet flooring; such as making the choice between ash and oak floors for homes; offices, and retail spaces, even in gyms.

In terms of composition, parquet flooring products come in:

  • Classical composition with patterns like brick, diagonal basket, square basket, single herringbone, and double herringbone.
  • Mosaic composition with creative patterns that customized; although the ready-to-install patterns are already beautiful in appearance. Examples include patterns that evoke stairs; stars, and basket weaves, among others.

Parquet floors from Solidfloor come in two wood varieties:

  • Oak floors are the most reliable type because of their excellent mechanical properties; innate durable construction, and beautiful appearance. Slavonian oak is the; type used by Solidfloor here.
  • Ash floors come in white to pale yellow hues. With its bright appearance and durable hardness coupled with its great strength, ash floors are suitable for high-traffic areas including stores; gyms, and schools although many homeowners also prefer them in their homes.

Parquet flooring products are usually adhered with cold adhesives. Bear in mind that professional installation is a must for these wooden flooring products to ensure that their beauty, durability and stability are intact upon application.

When choosing from among the wide range of parquet floors with the Solidfloor brand; you have to closely work with Wood Floor Planet’s flooring experts. Your choice in the product should be the right one at the first instance because; once installed, these become permanent installations; removing and replacing the boards will be costly.

Flooring Alternative Bamboo: The Cost-efficient

Posted on: August 24th, 2015 by wfp_admin No Comments

bamboo floor, bamboo floors, bamboo laminate flooring, bamboo wood flooring, best bamboo flooring, hardwood bamboo flooring

One of the most important considerations when making the choice from among several floor options is cost efficiency.

Keep in mind that the cost aspect has two components first; the initial cost outlay used in the purchase and installation of the flooring products; and second, the cost for maintenance over the lifetime of the floors.

In both components; the cost efficiency of bamboo flooring cannot be overlooked.

In terms of initial outlay, bamboo flooring is a cost-efficient option. The cost varies from $5 to $8 per square foot depending on the color; texture and thickness as well as overall quality of the bamboo flooring.

At these prices, bamboo floors are at par with the prices of many hardwood floors; although it must be said that lower prices can be enjoyed; thanks to comparison shopping and price negotiations. Â Just remember that quality should not be considerably compromised in favor of cost considerations you will get what you pay for in bamboo flooring, too.

But the purchase cost will still be increased due to the supplies and labor necessary for the installation of the bamboo flooring. The labor component; however, can be reduced in case you can install the bamboo floor as a do-it-yourself project.

cost for installation the floor

In case you want professional installation, be sure to add $3-$5.50 per square foot for the services. The money paid will be well worth it considering the excellent results – no warping, bulging and cracking, among other visible signs of amateur installation.

As to the cost to the environment, yet another important cost component, bamboo flooring has one of the lowest carbon footprints. Bamboo is a renewable resource because it reaches maturity; (i.e., suitable for harvest) within a 5-6 years and it can be planted in sustainable forests. Â In contrast, hardwood trees like ash, oak and maple takes decades to mature.

Qualities of floor:

In terms of maintenance costs, bamboo flooring has higher cost efficiency than many flooring options. Â Bamboo flooring is well known for the following qualities that make it one of the most cost-efficient choices:

  • Durability. Bamboo floors wear as well as hardwood floors especially when these are well taken care of.
  • Stability. Bamboo floors can resist the pressure from high-traffic areas, which means that it has greater stability than many types of flooring options including hardwood.
  • Ease of maintenance. Bamboo floors are easy to maintain. Vacuum and mop bamboo flooring with a hardwood floor cleaner when necessary.

When chosen, installed and cared for properly, bamboo flooring will provide great returns on investment – and that’s as cost-efficient as can be.

Choosing Hardwood Floor Color

Posted on: August 12th, 2015 by wfp_admin No Comments

best wood floors, Hardwood Floor, hardwood flooring, hardwood floors, wood flooring, wood floors

Choosing hardwood floor color can create a stunning addition. Wood flooring is a traditional flooring alternative for every homeowner; installers and interior designers. Its a cliché that you wont ever go wrong when you install hardwood floor.

Whatever you have in mind for your interior design; its impossible not to find the hardwood floor color that suits your style and taste; considering the endless wide selection of stains and finishing to bring out the desired color.

Here are tips on choosing hardwood floor color to keep you at the right side of your interior design project.

Tips that you must apply of choosing floor color:

  • Complementing Color: Choose the hardwood floor color that goes along with the overall interior design palette. Do this by choosing the largest interior architectural features. These could be the fireplace, wooden stairs, cabinetry, etc. Find a color that simply complements with that specific large aspect.


  • Color Variation vs: Consistency. Color variation on the surface of the wood floor is just natural; even the same wood floor species may look differently. By having natural oil finish; the color variation on its surface can be pretty apparent. Having the floorboard stained will create a monochromatic look to its design while minimizing the visibility of any color variation. If uniformity concerns you; then choose stain floorboards for your interior. Modern contemporary styles often use the naturally oil finished planks while the stained floorboards are known for traditional architectural design.

Samples to compare and choosing

  • Light Colored vs. Dark Colored Stain. In choosing hardwood floor color; take into consideration the amount of interior space. Light colored stain is recommended for smaller space while dark color stained is ideal for large spaces. Using light colored stained floorboards creates an illusion of more spacious and airy feel in any interior. Having dark colored stained planks work well in an interior that has a lot of light and are sought after for modern and chic interior or urban condos.


  • Bring home floor samples to compare and decide which one works along well with the walls and woodwork. Check which one looks well with furniture and adjoining floors; in broad daylight and evening artificial light. Also, get a feel of each floor sample the moment you enter the room.

Take note that you can have endless of possibilities for hardwood floor colors considering the wide-range selection; of stains and finishes on the floorboards. Taking into consideration numerous factors before coming up with a decision is better; than randomly choosing the hardwood floor color that you fancy. After all; the result should be pleasing in your eyes and not otherwise.
