Preparation for Installing or Refinishing Hardwood Floors
When you decide to install new hardwood flooring, or refinish your floors, there are several steps that need to be taken before initiating your new flooring project. John Griffiths Hardwood Flooring provides a detailed preparation checklist for the installation and/or refinishing of hardwood floors.
Mahogany Wood Flooring
While mahogany hardwood flooring may be more expensive than other species of hardwood flooring, it is often the first choice of buyers. It is important to know what you are getting because not all hardwoods that have mahogany in their name are genuinely mahogany.
Mahogany is often sought for its beauty and luxurious good looks that convey the appearance of opulence. It is used often for making furniture, cabinets, and doors. Because of its classy look and durability that often improves with age, it is also popular as an exotic hardwood flooring option.
Cleaning Hardwood Floors
Learning how to clean hardwood floors is essential for protecting and maintaining your beautiful investment. Since dirt and grime can’t hide on hardwood floors like they can on carpet, cleaning your floors may seem “high maintenance.”
Microfiber cleaning pads often use static electricity to trap dirt, particles, and other household allergens. Using a broom to can be effective as well, but using a broom only pushes the dirt around. Giving your floors a good dusting with a microfiber mop or cloth will be your best daily defense against scratches and surface damage.
