How Hardwood is Constructed
As the name suggests, solid hardwood is a single, solid piece of wood. It is coveted for its authenticity, longevity and durability. Hardwood can vary in quality, so consider where it was sourced, as well as what kind of protective finish it has.
Engineered wood flooring is constructed from multiple layers of wood with a hardwood top layer that is 100% natural. Below the top layer, cross layers of plywood are pressed to create a strong, stable core. This multi-ply structure gives engineered wood the flexibility to be installed in places where solid hardwood isn’t an option, such as in basements, over concrete floors or over radiant heating systems.
How to Clean and Maintain Hardwood Floors
Sweep & vacuum regularly to remove abrasive agents that may scratch your hardwood floor
Do not wet mop or steam clean wood floors! Excessive moisture can warp and disfigure the material
Damp mops like Bona or Swiffer systems are perfect and should be used regularly in addition to vacuuming
