The best Flooring for your Lifestyle

Posted on: May 25th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

SELECTING THE BEST FLOORING FOR YOUR LIFESTYLE

In this post, we highlight a few aspects to keep in mind when choosing flooring, including your lifestyle, budget and more.

  • Pet owners should consider modern vinyl and laminates for scratch-resistant wear and water-resistant or waterproof flooring.
  • Install waterproof or water-resistant flooring such as vinyl plank, tile, or sheet vinyl in rooms with high foot traffic.
  • Climate plays a part in certain floor materials, making an engineered option more suitable.
  • Replacing carpet with a hard flooring surface alleviates allergens.
  • Numerous flooring brands offer environmentally-friendly products for green-conscious households.
  • The subfloor can determine what type of flooring you can install and whether you need an attached pad or additional underlayment.

Do you have pets?

If you want to install hardwood flooring, one or two small pets won’t alleviate the option; but if you have large or multiple pets, you may want to consider a vinyl or laminate product. These floors have scratch resistant wear layers for durability that hold up to everyday wear and tear from your pets’ nails and playful activity. Modern vinyl and laminate floors have the same visuals as hardwood floors including distressed, wire brushed, and rustic wood styles, or earthy, natural patterns. So, you can still have the look you want; but the function that you need (and less worry about damage to your floors!).

Do you have children?

Consider the ages and activity level of your children. Are they active in sports and bring home muddy or heavy equipment every day?

If you have a dedicated area for those items, such as a mudroom or entryway, consider using a durable, waterproof or water resistant product for that space. If you think these items will make their way all over the house, you may want to choose a super durable, yet beautiful vinyl plank, tile or sheet product that will stand up to years of activity, for your entire home. Not only are luxury vinyl floors easy to clean and maintain; but the large range of color and style options available in realistic wood, stone and tile patterns will surprise you!

Do your family members have allergies?

Hard surface flooring is a much better choice over any carpet product to alleviate allergy symptoms and triggers. Hardwood, vinyl, and laminate products can be safely and thoroughly cleaned frequently with the peace of mind that there are no hidden dust mites or mold lurking beneath the surface.

Where are you installing your new flooring?

All Wood Floor Planet of flooring, including hardwood, can be used in any space in your home. It is the collections within each flooring type that offer the diversity of installation for basements, concrete slabs and/or less than perfect subfloor conditions.

Where do you live?

The climate in which you live can limit your hardwood selections. Avoid wide plank, solid only hardwood collections if you live in a very humid, southern region of the US. Although gluing and nailing these products can alleviate some cupping and crowning; an engineered option may be available in the same visual and will result in a much more stable installation.

With today’s options in flooring, it is very easy to find the look that you want with the functionality that you need.

Are you environmentally friendly?

Many families today take steps to recycle and bring reusable bags to the grocery store to promote a healthier earth. But when it comes to your home, did you know you can choose a green-friendly flooring option?

Wood Floor Planet offers numerous flooring options from manufacturers who undergo strict procedures and rules to gain certification status. Some of the environmental commitments from our brands ensure that the wood is gathered from sustainable forests.

How to take care of my wooden floors

Posted on: April 5th, 2021 by Carliuska Gonzalez No Comments

How to maintain and clean my wooden floor

Wooden floors are elegant, beautiful and timeless and can last for decades if looked after properly. Most types of wooden flooring are reasonably durable and hardwearing. However, they will still need caring for and protecting from damage. Looking after any type of wooden floor is easy and straight forward if you follow the advice below.

How to maintain and protect my wooden floor

An important part of maintaining the beauty of any wooden floor is to protect it from unwanted damage. One of the most important things to remember is to wipe away any spills immediately.

The top layers of lacquer or oil will protect your floor initially, but if the liquid is left to soak into the wood then it can cause irreparable damage.

Another way to maintain your flooring is to protect it from scratches and dents. Small marks and indentations are inevitable, but there are things that you can do to prevent deeper, larger scratches.

Firstly, remove footwear before walking on your wooden floor. Outdoor footwear is likely to have dirt and grit on the bottom that can easily scratch your floor if walked on. Ideally leave shoes and boots in a porch, garage or cupboard, but alternatively you could have a door mat or shoe rack. If you notice any stones or grit on your wooden floor, remove them straight away.

You will also want to prevent furniture or heavy objects from scratching your floor. Always pick up heavy objects to move them, rather than dragging them across the floor.

You can use anti scratch felt protector pads. These can be applied to the bottom of furniture and act as a soft barrier between the wooden floor and heavy object.

How to clean my wooden floor

Cleaning your wooden floor is straight forward. All you need to do is sweep the surface of the floor with a soft bristle brush. We would recommend that you do this everyday to remove any small surface dirt or dust. You can also use a vacuum cleaner but will need to make sure that you have the correct attachments for a wooden floor.

Once your floor has been swept, you can then clean it to remove any surface stains or marks. This only needs to be done about once a week, or when you notice any surface stains.

To clean your floor, we would recommend using a microfibre mop and PH neutral cleaning spray. This will be gentle but effective on your wooden floor. Try to clean in the direction of the grain. You should never use furniture polish as this will leave a slippery residue. Also, never use a steam mop. The steam will penetrate into the wooden floor and can cause damage over time.

Can I sand and re-finish my wooden floor?

Yes, you can refinish your wooden floor. This can help to revive and refresh your floor and can remove unwanted marks and stains. There are a few options available, but they depend upon what type of floor you have and why you want to refinish your floor.

If your wooden floor has an oiled finish, and you want to reduce the look of small scratches then you can apply more oil to the floor. Firstly, you will need to thoroughly clean your floor. Then apply another layer of oil. This will need to be left to dry for the appropriate amount of time before replacing furniture and walking on it. It will brighten and refresh your wooden floor.

If your wooden floor has a lacquered finish, and you want to reduce the look of small scratches then you can lightly sand the surface and then apply more lacquer. The finished look will be a fresh and revived wooden floor.

If you have large, deep dents or scratches then you may need a deep sand and then refinish with oil or lacquer. For any type of refinishing, we would recommend using a wooden flooring specialist.

Top tips for maintaining and cleaning wooden floors

Wipe away water spills immediately.
Remove footwear before walking on your floor.
Use felt protector pads and never drag heavy objects across the floor.
Sweep away dust and dirt on a daily basis.
Clean your floor using a microfibre mop and wooden floor cleaning spray.
Never use a steam mop, wet mop, furniture polish or abrasive products.
