Advantages of Hardwood

The advantages that Hardwood Flooring gives to your home are extensive. Beautiful and long-lasting, hardwood floors make an elegant choice for nearly any room in your home. When choosing hardwood, the color, grade, texture, and construction type are important factors to consider.

Why choose Hardwood? (Things to consider)

Hardwood Floor Color

The color of hardwood floors ranges from quite light to intensely dark—and everything in between. While, as a rule, lighter floors work well in contemporary settings and darker floors are elegantly at home in more traditional rooms, choosing is essentially a matter of preference.

Hardwood Floor Grain and Texture

Naturally present in hardwood, grain variations help determine a wood’s “personality.” Dramatic grain suggests a rustic feeling, more knotted hardwood is considered Country Chic. Historically, moderate grain variations are associated with the traditional. It is generally thought that hardwood with very little graining has a sleek, contemporary look.  

Hardwood Floor Construction

There are two basic choices—solid or engineered. Solid planks are created from a single piece of wood and make a handsome floor that lasts for years.  In  Albertas climate solid hardwood should be limited to a 4″ width at most.  Engineered planks can be much wider, and have layered consturction to provide stability. They are designed to withstand higher levels of humidity, and some engineered hardwood can be used in a glue down application. 

There are many differences in hardwood flooring finishes; like different gloss levels, textures such as sculpted, etched, scraped,  or wire-brushing, etc.

Protect the Natural Beauty of Your Sierra Hardwood Flooring

At Sierra Flooring, we specialize in the sale and installation of Hardwood flooring. We also carry specialty cleaners for hardwood, to protect your investment for years to come.  A few simple maintenance steps, however, will help protect your investment and keep your Sierra Hardwood flooring looking like new.

For cleaning, make sure you...
  • Use a lightly damp cloth to blot spills, and spots as soon as they happen.  Always avoid allowing liquids to stand on your floor.
  • Sweep, dust, or vacuum the floor regularly with the hard floor brush attachment (not the beater bar) to prevent accumulation of dirt or grit that can scratch, or dull the floor finish.
  • Occasionally wipe the floor with a very lightly moist cloth.
  • Periodically clean the floor with hardwood care products also available from Sierra. 
  • Each manufacturer has their own recommendations to be followed to maintain their warranty.
While cleaning is easy, there are a few things to avoid:
  • Don’t use oil based, wax, polish, or strong ammonia or abrasive cleaners.
  • Don’t use steel wool or scouring powder.
  • Don’t wash or wet-mop the floor with soap, water, oil-soap detergent, or any other liquid cleaning material. This could cause swelling, warping, and joint-line separation, and void the warranty.
  • Don’t use any type of buffing machine.
  • Each manufacturer has their own recommendations to be followed to maintain their warranty.
Other routine flooring care instructions:
    • For tough stains, use the cleaner or method as recommended by the manufacturer.
    • Use protective mats.
    • Use floor protectors on furniture.
    • Maintain a relative humidity level as recommended by the hardwood manuafacturer.
    • Avoid sharp or pointed objects directly on your hardwood floor.
    • Protect the floor when moving any large or heavy object; use a dolly or a protective mat.
