hardwood floor greensboroIf you’re interested in changing up the appearance of your home or business, we recommend hardwood floors! Whether you’re installing hardwood flooring or removing existing carpet to expose the hardwood floor underneath, both are great options to consider. Hardwood floors offer several benefits, so here are some reasons why hardwood floors may be exactly what you are looking for.

Improved Appearance

Many Greensboro homeowners opt for hardwood floors because of the impression they provide. Hardwood is considered elegant and can increase the overall value of your home. Hardwood flooring gives off a polished appearance and aids in making interior space look bigger. Since hardwood floors are usually in tones of brown, they add warmth to the aura of the space as well.

Easy Cleaning

When it comes time to clean your floors, hardwood makes this task quick and easy. Simply use a broom to whisk away any surface debris and polish planks to add a burst of sheen every month or so. If you opt for a vacuum cleaner, use an attachment to remove debris without difficulty. Spills can be wiped up without any worry about fibers becoming stained as a result.


Hardwood floors are known for their durability. If they are properly maintained with routine cleaning and sporadic repair when needed, they can last for decades. This means you won’t be spending money on new flooring as frequently.

Improved Air Quality

Unlike a carpeted room, a room with hardwood flooring will have less attributes that cause air quality issues. Carpet traps pet dander, dust, pollen, mites, and other allergens. Other flooring options, such as laminate or tile, trap allergens in embossed areas and along lines of grout holding the flooring in place. These can be transferred to the air when carpet is walked upon. If you suffer from any type of environmental allergy, having a hardwood floor should decrease your symptoms significantly.

Swappable Lasting Color

The color of hardwood floor will not fade or become worn out even with everyday use. Because of this, the need to replace floors to improve the color is not necessary for many, many years unless you wish to change the appearance of your floors. If you do decide you would like another shade, hardwood floors can easily be sanded and re-stained to upgrade their appearance.
