When you have hardwood flooring installed, there are just as many advantages as disadvantages of having this type of floor. One main advantages of having this type of flooring is that it is very easy to maintain and clean because stains and dirt does not stick to it. Unlike carpet, whose color can fade in time, the color in the hardwood floor will remain the same for a long time. In addition, for people with allergies, hardwood floors do not hold stuff that can aggravate their allergies like carpet can.

As mentioned above, hardwood doesn't hide harmful particulate matter, making for a healthier, safer living environment, especially for allergy sufferers.

Generally, hardwood floors cost more than carpeted floors, but they also require less maintenance, last longer and can be “repaired” (instead of replaced).

Especially in older indexs, hardwood floors can be draftier and colder. But a well-selected area rug typically remedies this problem.

Comparatively, hardwood floors require minimal maintenance – in terms of both effort and equipment. Consider, simply, the difference in price between a mop and vacuum. Hardwood floors are also much more resistant to spills and stains.


Hardwood floors do get scraped, scratched, scuffed, dented and damaged – especially in high traffic areas. However, wood flooring can most often simply be sanded, smoothed and refinished. It is rarely necessary to replace a wood floor.


Since wood is a naturally occurring resource, which can even be reforested, hardwood floors may also be a quality ecological choice. Faster growing types of wood flooring materials – such as bamboo (which is actually grass) make this an even more plausible reality.

Perhaps the number one reason to consider a hardwood floor is for aesthetic reasons.

Hardwood is one of the oldest flooring materials there is, and it never goes out of style. Because of the large variety of trees and wood types, a world of colors, consistencies, designs, grains and patterns are available.

Whereas many new indexowners will remove carpeting upon purchasing a house, viewing it as an additional expense, hardwood floors definitely increase the value of a house.


So, while hardwood floors may cost more initially, with proper maintenance, they can be a sound investment that pay off for a lifetime. So call today and see how we can make your index beautiful. 516-208-2745
