Benefits of Hardwood Flooring

Installing hardwood floors in your home with GoFlooring offers a multitude of advantages that go beyond just aesthetics.


Firstly, hardwood flooring significantly enhances the visual appeal of your space with its timeless natural beauty, adding warmth and elegance to any room. This type of flooring also contributes to a healthier indoor environment. Unlike carpets, hardwood floors do not trap dust, pet dander, or other allergens, making it easier to maintain a clean and allergen-free home.


The maintenance of hardwood floors is remarkably simple, requiring only regular sweeping and occasional mopping to keep them looking pristine. This ease of care ensures that your floors remain beautiful and functional for years to come, making hardwood flooring a practical and stylish choice for any homeowner.


Step-by-Step Guide to Installing Hardwood Flooring


Transforming your space with hardwood flooring can be a rewarding project. Follow this step-by-step guide to ensure a seamless and professional hardwood floor installation:


1. Acclimate the Flooring: Allow hardwood planks to adjust to the room's temperature and humidity for 72 hours to prevent expansion or contraction issues.

2. Prepare the Subfloor: Ensure the subfloor is clean, dry, and level. Remove any debris and patch any cracks or holes.

3. Install Underlayment: If needed, roll out the underlayment across the installation area, overlapping seams and securing with tape. This helps with noise reduction, insulation, and moisture control.

4. Begin Installation: Start laying planks from one corner, leaving a small gap around the perimeter for expansion. Use spacers to keep gaps consistent.

5. Stagger Planks: Stagger the end joints of adjacent rows for a natural look and even weight distribution.

6. Secure Planks: Attach planks to the subfloor using adhesive or nails, following manufacturer instructions.

7. Trim as Needed: Trim planks to fit around edges, ensuring to leave expansion gaps.

8. Complete the Installation: Continue installing planks until the entire floor is covered. Use a crowbar and hammer for the final row if necessary.

9. Add Finishing Touches: Remove spacers and install baseboards or molding to cover the expansion gap, securing them with finish nails or adhesive.

10. Final Inspection and Cleanup: Inspect the installation for any issues, clean up any debris, and enjoy your new hardwood floor.

How to Care for Hardwood Floors

Proper care is essential to maintain the beauty and longevity of your hardwood floors. Here’s how you can care for them:

1. Regular Sweeping

Sweep your hardwood floors regularly to remove dust and dirt that can scratch the surface. Using a soft-bristle broom or a vacuum with a hardwood floor attachment can help keep your floors looking pristine.

2. Gentle Cleaning

When it's time for a deeper clean, use a damp mop with a cleaner specifically designed for hardwood floors. Avoid using excessive water or harsh chemicals, as these can damage the wood.

3. Protective Mats and Rugs

Place mats at entryways to catch dirt and moisture before they reach your hardwood floors. Area rugs in high-traffic areas can also help protect the floor from wear and tear.

4. Use Furniture Pads

Attach felt pads to the bottoms of furniture legs to prevent scratches when moving pieces around. This simple step can significantly reduce the risk of damage to your hardwood floors.

5. Wipe Spills Immediately

Promptly clean up any spills to prevent moisture from seeping into the wood and causing damage. Use a soft, dry cloth to blot spills and avoid spreading the liquid further.

6. Avoid High Heels

High heels can dent and scratch hardwood floors. Encourage family and guests to remove their shoes, or provide soft house slippers to protect your floors.

7. Protect from Sunlight

Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause hardwood floors to fade or discolor. Use curtains or blinds to shield your floors from direct sunlight, or consider UV-resistant finishes.

8. Humidity Control

Maintain a consistent indoor humidity level to prevent your hardwood floors from expanding and contracting. Use a humidifier in the winter and a dehumidifier in the summer if necessary.

9. Regular Maintenance

Regularly inspect your floors for signs of wear and address minor issues before they become major problems. Periodic maintenance can extend the life of your hardwood floors.

10. Professional Refinishing

Over time, even well-maintained hardwood floors may need refinishing to restore their original beauty. Professional refinishing can remove surface scratches and renew the finish, making your floors look new again.
