Hardwood flooring offers extensive choices for beauty, durability, and lifespan, to name only a few features. It's an excellent choice for every room in your home, with benefits that work in every space.
No matter which hardwood you choose, it’s always a good idea to keep moisture to a minimum to ensure the best performance. Here are some facts about moisture and hardwood flooring.
What to know about hardwood and moisture
The bottom line is moisture can cause damage to wood floors, especially if the situation is long-term and unaddressed. Avoiding moisture is always the best choice with wood flooring, and there are plenty of ways to protect your space.
The installation process starts with acclimation, which matches the outside moisture level to the hardwood. The process can take one to three days, but it's necessary for the best functionality of your floors.
A dehumidifier can work wonders if you find that humidity levels are rising and there's no other way to control it. It works to pull excess moisture from the atmosphere and protect your floors as long as it’s in place.
Area rugs and runners can also protect your new hardwood flooring against dampness and moisture by catching spills, footprints, and more. When you're ready to pick the perfect products and services for your home, stop by our showroom to speak with an associate about your requirements.
