4 Frequently asked questions on hardwood flooring

Hardwood flooring is a popular choice for homeowners because of its natural beauty and durability. However, many people have questions about hardwood flooring before they make a decision. Today we answer some of the frequently asked questions about hardwood flooring we hear in our Medford, OR, flooring store.

Is hardwood flooring expensive?

The cost of hardwood flooring depends on the type of wood, quality, and finish you choose. It is generally more expensive than other flooring options like laminate or vinyl, but it is also the longest-lasting option. Hardwood flooring can last over 100 years when properly installed and maintained, often making it more affordable.

Can hardwood flooring be installed over existing flooring?

Some hardwood flooring products can be installed over existing flooring, but it is crucial to ensure that the existing flooring is level and free of damage before installation. It may be necessary to remove the existing flooring before installation, but remember that the best installation results in a longer-lasting product.

How do I maintain hardwood flooring?

To maintain hardwood flooring, sweep and vacuum regularly to remove dirt and debris, wipe up spills immediately and use a hardwood cleaner to clean the surface, and avoid using abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the finish. From time to time throughout the extensive life of your floors, maintenance could include refinishing.

Can hardwood flooring be refinished?

Yes, hardwood flooring can be refinished multiple times over its lifetime to restore its original beauty. The frequency of refinishing depends on the level of foot traffic and wear and tear on the surface. Even engineered hardwood flooring can often be refinished throughout its lifetime, depending on product thickness.
