Change The Look And In Crease The Value Of A Home With Hardwood Flooring Smyrna TN

By Andrea Davidson

The notion of wall to wall carpeting was the definition of a luxurious house and elicits the image of a loving family lying on it and watching movies or TV together. Naturally, this is the image carpet manufacturers desire, not the reality of trying to keep carpets clean as they age and wear out. A truly valuable and timeless floor is possible with hardwood flooring Smyrna TN.

Most families walk into their homes with their shoes on, which, no matter how careful they are, tracks in debris from the outside, with carpeting, this debris is dislodged from the shoes and retained, working deep into the fibers. Cleaning removes some, if not most of it, but a gradual buildup is unavoidable. A solid surface still gets dirty, but clean up is far easier.

A wood floor is made up of a number of individual boards, and when finished a hard varnish is applied, virtually sealing it and ensuring easy care and maintenance. Certainly a wood floor is hard and less comfortable to sit or lay on, but one need only find a lush throw rug or room carpet to gain that ability. In addition, the rug can be moved or changed at will providing endless variety.

When the surface has been marred through continuous use or by a single mishap of some sort, the wood can easily be refinished. A complete refinishing may take a little longer than whole house carpet cleaning, but no matter what has befallen the flooring, it can be returned to like new status. Some carpet stains cannot be repaired.

Having a home with wall to wall carpeting is nice for a while, but the reality that it is slowly deteriorating is inescapable. Stains from spilled fluids, dragged furniture burns and torn or unraveling fibers combine to make the carpet seem permanently degraded, and repairing small sections of carpet is virtually impossible. If a small section of wood is damaged, it can be easily and permanently repaired.

Maintained wood floors are nearly impervious to most fluids, which makes clean up an easy wipe and remove proposal. Even red wine and ink can be easily gotten rid of, with no remaining shadow stain. If something more caustic is spilled, like polish remover, only the area affected will have to be refinished, not a whole room.

There are insects which feed on wood, like termites, but since their appearance and infestation is no more likely due to the floor, as the majority of homes are framed with wood as well. Insects are virtually impossible to keep out of a home, there are too many entry pathways, but with wood floors, they cannot hide out in the open. Still, keeping insects at bay is a continuous challenge no matter what type of home or where it is located.

Fortunately, replacing wall to wall carpeting with a simpler to maintain floor is easy. There are so many varieties of woods and stains that one is sure to find the right one for the house. Making it even easier one can turn to hardwood flooring Smyrna TN for a professional touch.
