Benefits of Hardwood Floors VS Carpet, Tile & Grout or Laminate Flooring in Camarillo, TX

Many homeowners look to have hardwood floors installed instead of carpet for many reasons. It is cost effective and lasts a lifetime. Some like it because they stay cleaner and others simply like the look and versatility of hardwood floors. My grandmother had real hardwood floors installed in her home more than 30 years ago and it is still holding up today. You can even change up the look if it’s time for a face-lift without having to replace the whole floor! So, what are some benefits to installing hardwood floors?

Advantages of Oak & Other Hardwood Flooring

1: Low Maintenance – Unlike carpeting, hardwood floors require little upkeep. A daily or weekly sweep or vacuum depending on how many people you have in your home will remove dust, dirt and food that may have dropped. A bi-weekly mopping or wet Swiffer will keep your stain resistant flooring sanitized and free of harmful bacteria and virus’. Most hardwood floors only require a yearly deep-cleaning. I love knowing that my home is clean and harbors a much lower risk of holding environmental hazards and allergens because we have hardwood. If someone spills something, all I have to do is wipe it up!
2: Improves indoor air quality– Unlike carpet or vinyl, hardwood floors do not harbor dust mites, animal dander, pollen, particulate matter or other allergens. Having wood floors are best for allergy sufferers because they carry little risk in irritating allergies and respiratory diseases.
