Why Choose Wood Flooring?
As mentioned, hardwood flowing provides several advantages over carpeting:
Stylish: Wooden flooring offers a traditional, neat, and uniform look which is, in many ways, much more interesting than carpeting. From dark and cosy stained and natural woods to lighter options, no matter what look you want to achieve we can provide an ideal solution.
Hardy, and Ages Well: Carpets do not age well. They can be maintained and looked after, but they will pick up stains and become progressively more worn out from the minute they are laid down.
Hardwood, on the other hand, is incredibly resistant to damage and wear, and will only build character as the years go on, in many ways looking better. If you disagree, restoration is a straightforward and reasonably priced option.
Stain Resistant: Carpets, especially when light in colour, are incredibly susceptible to stains. Whether these come from mud being pressed in, or food and drink being spilt, even with immediate clean-up permanent stains are likely.
Because the hardwood flooring won’t immediately absorb anything which touches it, when you drag mud across wooden floors or spill a full glass of red wine, the solution is just to wipe it off.
Dust-Free: Have you ever sat in a carpeted room with the sun beating in the window and witnessed the sheer amount of debris floating through the air? A lot of this is due to the carpet, which collects dust ready to be disturbed, and offers up fibres of its own.
Wooden flooring minimises these issues and will significantly reduce the amount of dust in a room. Not only will less collect on the floor, but it has no fibres to contribute to the problem.
Hygienic: The amount of food residue, dirt, and various minuscule beasties caught within your carpet is startling. This will help to create an unhygienic environment and can in some cases cause harm to young children or household pets. There are plenty places to hide within a carpet.
When it comes to hardwood flooring, however, anything that falls on to the floor will merely lie on the surface ready to be cleaned up!
Easy to Clean: Hardwood flooring is very easy to clean. Steamers, for example, will make short work of anything stuck to the surface. In addition, hoovering is effortless, as any residue cannot get caught up in the carpet fibres!
At Quality Joiners, we also supply and install laminate flooring products. Laminate flooring is formed of wood composites, pressed together at high temperatures with an artificial wood pattern printed on top.
While there is no substitute for genuine hardwood flooring, laminate is a significantly more affordable option and comes with its own unique pros and cons.
