Benefits of hardwood flooring featured image

Upgrading your home can easily be done by simply replacing the flooring! You may have never thought about it, but that carpet you’ve had for years has accumulated some questionable looking stains, not to mention it traps so much dirt, dust, and dog hair! Instead of trying to steam your carpet, look towards hardwood floors instead. Wood floors are timeless and don’t trap filth the way that carpets do, enhancing the look of your home and making it look cleaner. Further, if you’re the type of person who enjoys sliding across a wood floor in your socks (isn’t everyone?) then you will find endless entertainment in installing hardwood floors. For hardwood floor installers you can trust, call JRK Flooring in Grandview, Missouri. We proudly serve Kansas City, Johnson County, Jackson County, and the surrounding areas. Call us for more information about our hardwood flooring services.

Easy to Clean

Probably one of the greatest things about hardwood floors is how easy they are to clean. All you really need is a broom and a mop! We may not need to remind you, but just in case, you should always sweep before you mop. You want to clean away all the excess dust and hair because it makes mopping that much easier. If you’re planning on wet cleaning, then it is necessary to sweep, because you’ll just be pushing the filth around when you try to mop. Also, you should go with the grain. It’s one more way to make sure you get all the dirt and debris from your hardwood floor, not to mention it helps it last longer! 

Adds Value to Your Home

If you’re thinking of selling or renting your home, buyers will always pay more money for a home that has hardwood flooring. Many people looking to buy homes don’t want carpet because they’re not cost-effective and demand more labor and upkeep than hardwood floors do. Further, you don’t want someone else’s carpet — nothing keeps track of how messy you are quite like a carpet does. It’s like a petri dish full of dirt, hair, dust, and other debris that are likely to irritate allergies. People looking for houses don’t want to replace the floor themselves, so they are eager to buy homes that already have them installed. If you are a home buyer and need to replace your carpet, however, then call JRK Flooring for quality hardwood flooring installation. Not to mention, they look great in any home and complement your interior, boosting the aesthetic value of your home.  

High-Quality Look that Complements All Decor

Unlike carpet, vinyl, and tile, hardwood floors enhance the look of your home and complement all kinds of styles and decors. Hardwood doesn’t mess with the Feng Shui of your house — instead, it adapts to the interior of your home. The versatility of your hardwood floor prevents it from clashing against your personal style, no matter what it is. The colors and shades that hardwood floors come in allow you to express your personal style. With hardwood flooring, you get the natural beauty of swirls and grains that contribute to the aesthetic look of your floor, adding character to your home and its surrounding decor. 

Long-Lasting and Cost-Effective

While installing a hardwood floor is an investment, it is a worthwhile one. What it really comes down to are the long-term factors that make the floor type so appealing. Hardwood floors, as stated above, are easy to clean and maintain and less likely to be damaged. If they are damaged, however, JRK Flooring specializes in hardwood floor repair that covers squeaky floors, termite damage, color matching, and water damage. If that wasn’t convincing enough for you, then think about how durable hardwood floors are. They can literally last for generations, making them an investment that actually saves you money. If your floor does start reflecting its age, then simply have it refinished! Refinishing smooths out the years of wear and minor damage, like dents and scratches. A new finish on your floor makes it shine to the point where it looks new.  

Better Indoor Air Quality

Something you may not have considered when thinking about installing hardwood floors is the improvement in your indoor air quality. Unlike carpets, hardwood floors do not trap dust, particulate matter, pollen, and animal dander. You might be thinking that tile and laminate flooring are on-par with hardwood flooring in terms of air quality, but unfortunately, dust and allergens still find places to settle in the grout lines and embossing in these alternative flooring materials. With hardwood floors, there are no fibers and certainly no grout lines to trap any allergens.
