Glendale Phoenix Installation Of Hardwood Flooring
Hardwood Flooring Installations can be divided into installation categories. You may wish to select your hardwood this way, ensuring you choose flooring with the kind of installation you may prefer:
Nail/Staple down: Nail down uses nails to attach the wood to the sub-flooring, and staple down uses staples to attach the wood. Staple down is simpler than nail down. Solid hardwood is quite often installed using this method.
Glue down: If the flooring is an engineered hardwood, it can be glued to the sub-flooring with a strong approved adhesive. This method is very rarely used on solid hardwood flooring, except for some thin profile solids.
Float: Is available in two options and is designed for a quicker installation. These floors are not attached to the sub-flooring and as such can be installed over just about any surface. Most usually, a moisture barrier and/or an under pad is placed between the sub-floor and the engineered wood floor.
Glue-Seam: These floors use an adhesive to glue the pieces together.
Glueless-Click Flooring: These floors snap together and require no adhesive glue to be applied.
Hardwood Flooring Maintenance
The proper use of sweeping, vacuuming and light damp mopping is usually all that is usually required to maintain the desired cleanliness and lasting appearance of your hardwood floor. Oil based soaps should never be used to clean your hardwood flooring. The best suggestion is to use the cleaning products recommended by the manufacturer. This will ensure that you do not void any warranty. Grit and heavy foot traffic will affect appearance so proper on-going maintenance is needed. A properly finished and maintained wood floor does not accumulate hidden soil or allergy causing compounds and is often chosen for these reasons.
