How to Have the Best Relationship with Your Hardwood Floors

It is all fun and games during the summer months until the dreaded humidity strikes. Often, families stay inside their air-conditioned homes or go on day trips to indoor facilities to escape the dry air and seek relief. Not only does humidity affect us, but it also affects those households with hardwood flooring.

We all want the perfect floor for our home. You want a floor that can handle heavy foot traffic on the busiest of days, a floor that is strong enough to handle the hardest of falls, and a floor that is built for a long-term commitment. You want your floors to increase the value of your property, and hardwood does just that.

Hardwood brings warmth and beauty to your home, is easy to clean and maintain, and most importantly, hardwood is often offered in a variety of styles, stains and colors to fit your style.

While there are many perks to choosing hardwood, these floors do run into a little bit of trouble when humidity strikes. Moisture, which is a direct result from the humidity, causes hardwood floors to warp and buckle, and an increase in humidity is also an increase in your problems.

To prevent any warping in your beautiful flooring, make sure to keep the humidity levels low by running the air conditioner, as this will not only keep your home cool, but it will also pull the moisture out of your floors, leaving both you and your hardwood floors happy.

Being environmentally conscious is not only the right thing to do, but it is also a great way of life and running a business. We are committed to “greening” our company in order to better our environment with our own actions through our relationships with our community, neighbors, suppliers and our employers. Our Green Select product line is made up of products that are recyclable, contain a minimum of recycled material, and/or can be made from a natural, sustainable, and renewable resource.

Keeping Your Home Clean During the Winter Season

With snow and ice storms upon us, dirt, snow and salt are all being tracked into our homes. While snowstorms can be peaceful and beautiful, it has the opposite effect on your home and floors when it’s tracked inside by your family and friends.

Along with winter debris, dry, winter air affects both your health and your floors.  When humidity levels are low, contraction and gapping can occur in your floors, making it important to keep temperatures warm and dry in your home to prevent this.

To keep your floors clean and free of any scratches or rot, place doormats and rugs at every entrance in your home. This keeps most of the dirt and salt from entering your house, and leaves you with less of a mess to clean up. If kids or neighbors track winter debris past your entrance, sweeping and vacuuming regularly are a great way to keep up with the winter conditions.

Winter also affects the outside of your home, which can leave you victim to frozen pipes and no power. Make sure to always store an emergency kit in your home, consisting of flashlights, batteries, candles, non-perishable food, and plenty of warm clothing and blankets.

While your kids and pets enjoy frolicking in the snow, we have your home covered with our Resista cleaning products. Ranging from cleaning pads, powders and sprays, we have every cleaning product that your home needs to withstand the harsh, winter conditions.
