Using furniture moving pads to move furniture for cleaning will also reduce the risk of any scratches occurring to your flooring when moving furniture.
It is best to place a mat under any pet food and water bowls to prevent any water damage to your flooring.
Improper product use can damage your flooring finish so it is important to use the correct cleaning method for your type of flooring. To ensure you use the correct product for cleaning your hardwood flooring you must first determine the type of finish that is on your hardwood flooring.
It is very important that you follow the manufacturer’s recommendations to maintain your specific flooring surface finish.

Over time the dark area where you have removed the area rug will change color to catch up with the rest of the floor once that area of the wood flooring is exposed to light.
Wood is a natural product and will be affected by exposure to light rays which will cause the flooring to change color over time. This can be slowed by the use of UV Blockers that are contained in some finishes. Other ways to prevent color change is the use of curtains, blinds or sheers on your windows to reduce the exposure to direct sunlight. Another option is to have a UV blocking tint applied to your windows to reduce the amount of light ray exposure to your flooring.

Unfinished products will require on site sanding prior to any finish application.
Rift material has the straight tight vertical grain
Quarter Sawn material has beautiful fleck that goes across the grain giving a “tiger strip” appearance to the surface of the wood in the White Oak and Red Oak species.
Rift and Quarter sawn material is more dimensionally stable than plain sawn material making it less likely to cup, twist and warp. Due to the dimensional stability of the product this material is idea for use in wood flooring and furniture projects.
Not properly acclimating/conditioning wood flooring may cause excessive expansion, shrinkage, dimensional distortion or structural damage.
Acclimation times will vary depending on your specific geographical region.
There are multiple edge treatments available to achieve many different looks for your overall product design.
Options include V groove which has two size options:
1/16” micro bevel or 1/8” standard bevel
The edges are beveled at a 45 degree angle removing the square edge of the product which helps to reduce splintering and over and under wood that can occur with uneven subflooring.
Eased edge or rolled edge is another edge treatment option.
When you lay unfinished flooring on site it is sanded to an even surface. That is not the case with a prefinished floor installation. An edge treatment will hide the unequal heights (over wood and under wood) of the prefinished flooring pieces.
There are multiple options available in various sizes to work for your overall desired product look.
The smallest of these bevel sizes are a 1/16” micro bevel which is the most requested bevel size option.
The top wear layer of engineered wood consists of high quality wood. Engineered floors can be nailed or stapled to a wood sub-floor, or glued down to a wood subfloor or concrete slab. This makes engineered wood floors ideal for slab and basement installations, but they can be used in any room either above or below grade.
