Hardwood: a healthier floor for allergies

Hardwood floors have a streamlined look, they are easy to clean and they improve air quality in the home–ideal for the 35 million allergy sufferers in America. It’s a preferable choice over carpet, which can emit volatile organic compounds and trap some of the biggest allergy offenders including dust, pet dander and mold. According to the EPA, hardwood floors also greatly reduce the accumulation of pesticides we track into our homes from our yards and gardens. They give homeowners greater control over their environment.

ACCORDING TO A 2011 NATIONAL SURVEY CONDUCTED BY THE NATIONAL WOOD FLOORING ASSOCIATION (NWFA), 90% OF REAL ESTATE AGENTS BELIEVE HOMES WITH HARDWOOD FLOORS SELL FOR MORE MONEY AND 82% SAY THEY SELL FASTER.

Wood types: flexible look and feel

You aren’t locked into a specific aesthetic, because hardwoods can be sanded and stained for various effects. In fact, there are a lot of decisions to make when choosing a hardwood floor, including:

  • Floor type:
    • Solid hardwood flooring. 100 percent solid wood that expands and contracts with fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Over time gaps may emerge and  resanding and refinishing may be required.  
    • Engineered hardwood floors. 100 percent solid wood that is layered and bonded. The cross-ply construction provides more dimensional stability and is less likely to crack, gap or react to temperature changes. It can be installed above and below grade, and even over concrete.
  • Wood species. You have more than 50 species to choose from as a base, that contain unique grain patterns, knots, streaks wormholes and color variations.
  • Durability. The Janka Rating System ranks wood species from the degree of hardness to softness. This information helps you match the floor requirements with your lifestyle, so that, for example, you are confident that Brazilian Cherry or Red Oak is the best choice for the living room.
  • Board Widths. Wood planks come in a variety of widths, the most popular ranging from 2 ¼-4” and others measuring up to 5-6” wide. Some homeowners mix planks of different widths with the same stain and finish as a way to add visual interest and character.
  • Finish. The strong sealing topcoat for wood.
  • Degree of shine. Lifestyle and preference play into how you want your floor to shine. With hardwood floors, you must decide between:
    • Matte: a more rustic, refined, low luster finish that is natural for kitchens. Matte shine is a good medium traffic choice–even forgiving of children and pets.
    • Satin: though it’s still considered low luster, satin is 20 percent shinier than matte. It’s a popular and modern choice that, too, stands up to wear from children and pets.
    • Semi gloss: 50 percent shinier than matte and is the most requested of all shine levels. This is a traditional, all-around finish that compliments shinier traditional and contemporary furniture.
    • Gloss: accentuates color and detail. Typically used commercially for sports venues, museums, bars and restaurants, it’s not ideal for most homeowners. Gloss  accentuates footprints, scratches and general wear, and it’s very high maintenance.

These factors are a lot to consider; It can be overwhelming without guidance.
