The Incredible Lifespan of Hardwood Flooring

March 06, 2023
Timeless long-lasting hardwood ready for your Tucson, AZ floors
Hardwood flooring offers many benefits for floors that meet various needs, including beauty, versatility, and performance, but many homeowners prefer it for its extensive lifespan of more than 100 years.

You'll find the best results from professional installation and regular maintenance to ensure ongoing protection. Here's some information that gives you the necessary facts before choosing your perfect floor covering.

It all starts with species

Choosing the suitable species can do a lot for the lifespan of your flooring because some are much harder than others. The harder the species, the more protection you'll have for your wood floors from scratches, dents, and dings.

Also, we can add an excellent finish and sealant that add even more protection. Choosing a textured finish like distressed, hand-scraped, or wire-brushed helps to hide light scuffs and scratches for floors that look better longer.

Protecting the finish

There are many ways to protect your floor's finish, even after applying the sealant. Consider area rugs and runners for your busiest spaces, and always use floor-protecting pads on the legs of heavy furniture pieces.

Cleaning your wood floors frequently can also inhibit scratching by ridding the surface of your wood floors of abrasive debris. Avoid harsh chemicals and abrasive cleaners, and never drag anything across the surface of your floor.
