The Popularity Of Engineered Wood Flooring

>The Popularity of Engineered Wood Flooring

>Why has engineered flooring has become more popular and better quality, well besides its obvious beauty, engineered wood flooring is more stable than solid wood flooring. This is due to the board construction where layers of ply and/or timber are bonded together before adding the wood wear layer. This stability ensures that flooring can be installed in certain household areas where solid oak flooring may not be suitable. Engineered wood flooring copes much better with the dry heat of modern central heating and wooden floors are one of the easiest of all floor surfaces to keep clean and looking good.  Unlike carpeted floors that show age regardless of care, wooden floors can be kept looking like new with minimum care.

>A good example is that engineered wood flooring can be fitted in rooms where solid wood flooring cannot be fitted, over concrete, in basements and with radiant floor heating, because engineered flooring will not bow or increase in size under varied temperature conditions and humidity, like real solid wood might and engineered wood can be used over increasingly popular underfloor heating systems. When you invest in new engineered hardwood flooring, you might well be thrilled with the results. The aesthetic qualities of such offerings are second-to-none and they are also very practical, making them ideal for homes.

>However, to ensure that your new floors remain in good condition and stand the test of time, it is important that you treat them with care. This way, you can rest assured you will get optimum value for money. Indeed, a wooden floor can last for the duration of a property if it is looked after.

>One of the ways in which you can help ensure your wooden flooring remains in top condition is by engaging in regular sweeping. For best results, use a soft broom or a vacuum cleaner with a soft attachment. This stops any scratches occurring. You should consider doing this roughly every two to three days.

>Meanwhile, it is also beneficial to periodically wash your floors with special cleaning products. Here at Source Online we sell a range of such items. It is important that you stick to the appropriate products, rather than using generic cleaning substances that may be harmful to your engineered wood floors. This type of washing can be conducted around once a week. Then, every three to four months, it is helpful to clean your floors with a special product that contains wax. This helps to rejuvenate the wood. As long as you are sensible in your approach and heed the advice given to you, you and your fellow householders should enjoy many years with your flooring.
