Caring for Hardwood Flooring

Wood Flooring and Wood Cleaning

  • Do not Damp Mop - Water and hardwood floors don't mix! Use only the manufacturer's recommended cleaning products on your hardwood floor.

  • Vacuum Regularly - Small stones, mud and gritty dirt tracked in from outside can scratch the finish of your wood floor's finish. To help combat this use long bristle welcome mats placed at all outside entrances for people to wipe their feet on before entering onto the floors. Also, vacuum using a soft bristle brush attachment.

  • Use the Proper Chair Glides - Narrow wheels, sharp wooden legs or metal furniture legs can scratch and dent hardwood floors. Any furniture that rests directly on top of a hardwood floor should have felt protectors, or furniture coasters under all its feet. For extremely heavy objects such as a piano, use wide, non-staining rubber cups. Purchasing floor protectors is inexpensive insurance for protecting your hardwood floor investment.

  • Don't Use Oil Soaps - There are many over the counter oil-based soaps and wax based cleaning products that may damage or dull the finish of your wood floor. The best suggestion is to only use the manufacturers recommended cleaning products on your hardwood flooring.

  • Never Wax a Urethane Floor - If your hardwood floor has a polyurethane finish never use a paste wax on the floor's surface. A paste wax may form a sticky film on your floor and allow tracked in dirt to stick to your wood finish. Polyurethane finishes will not adhere to any wax and adding a fresh coat of polyurethane to your floor will be very difficult.

  • Wipe Spills Immediately - When accidents happen and liquid gets spilled on your hardwood floor, you should use a slightly damp white cloth, or paper towel to immediately clean up and dry the affected area. For more difficult spots, follow the manufacturer's recommended cleaning procedures.

Hardwood Flooring:
Wood floors have come a long way in the past few years. Today, there are more styles, colors and species of wood flooring available than ever. No matter what your décor, you’re sure to find a color and style to fit your home at our Davan Floors showroom. We offer Solid Wood Flooring, Engineered Flooring, Exotic Hardwood Flooring, and Parquet Flooring - All At Davan Floors!


Types of Wood:
Hardest : Hickory, Pecan, Hard Maple, White Oak

Softer : Cherry, Mahogany, Pine

 

Solid Flooring wood flooring
Solid wood flooring is made from one continuous piece of wood and is available in strips, planks and parquet squares. Wood strips are anywhere from 1 ½” to about 2 ¼” wide. Planks are wider than 2¼”. Generally, a solid hardwood floor is a ¾” thick plank that is in narrow 2 ¼” strips. However, they can be manufactured in a variety of widths and thicknesses.

Solid flooring gives you a great opportunity for customization. Your choice of species, stains, and finishes all contribute to the personalization of a solid floor.

You can get your wood floor either unfinished or pre-finished. Unfinished flooring offers unlimited color stain options. Pre-finished wood flooring features a factory-applied finish.

Because solid wood is sensitive to moisture, Davan Floors does not recommend installing a solid wood floor below ground level or directly over a concrete slab. These floors are generally for nail down installations only. Consult with your Davan Floor expert to select the floor that is just right for you.

 

engineered hardwood flooring

Engineered Flooring
Engineered wood flooring is made from layers of wood stacked and glued together under heat and pressure. There are usually three to seven layers (plies) stacked with grains running perpendicular to each other. The top finish layer can be cut from a variety of domestic or exotic hardwood species and are generally factory pre-finished with a polyurethane or an aluminum oxide finish.

 

All woods expand and contract with heat and humidity. Engineered wood is more dimensionally stable than solid hardwood because the layers keep the movement in balance. Because it is less inclined to swell and shrink, engineered wood can be installed in areas where solid wood cannot such as over concrete or in high-moisture areas. It can easily be used in kitchens, powder rooms and utility rooms.Engineered floors will range from 5/16” to 9/16” in thickness and from 2 ¼” to 7” in width. Installation can be glued, floated, nailed or stapled.


hardwood flooringExotic Hardwood Flooring
Exotic hardwood is the term used to describe hardwood species from around the world. Exotic hardwood species come from Australia, Africa, South America and the Far East. Exotic hardwoods offer unique wood graining and color variations. Most exotic woods are available in engineered wood construction, but some are available in solid hardwood planks as well.

Bamboo, Amendoim and Jatoba are examples of exotic hardwood.

 

Parquet Flooring
Parquet floors are made from custom-crafted wood tiles that are used to create a patterned floor.
