Engineered Wood Flooring

Engineered Wood Flooring

When you’re building a new home or remodeling or upgrading your existing home, flooring deserves a high place on your priorities list. Engineered wood flooring offers the look of hardwood with the stability, waterproof properties and easy installation of manufactured flooring. As you decide which type of flooring is the right one for your home, consider what makes engineered flooring different and how its benefits could improve your comfort and lifestyle.

What Are Engineered Floors?

Engineered flooring is a type of layered flooring. While solid hardwood has a single layer of wood topped with a polyurethane sealant, engineered flooring has layers of resins, wood and polymers. The top part of the layered flooring is a sheet of hardwood that is fully sealed for protection against scuffs, stains and spills.

When you’re in a hurry to have your project finished, engineered flooring is a great choice. It’s ready to install. There’s no need to paint or seal it. The less invasive process of installation doesn’t take as much time as hardwood flooring. This means your rooms will be ready for furniture and decor in a short amount of time.

Benefits of Engineered Wood Flooring

There are many benefits of installing engineered wood flooring in your living areas, hallways and bedrooms. It has a nice textured look that mimics that of hardwood. It has a softer feel to the step than hardwood. If you spend a lot of time on your feet at home, your heels and toes won’t feel sore by the end of the day. For homes that include children or pets, the waterproof nature of engineered flooring makes it a wise choice. Spills and messes are easy to clean. The stability of engineered flooring means you don’t have to worry about humidity warping the floorboards. Engineered flooring increases the value of your home. Prospective buyers will appreciate the low maintenance requirements. They won’t have to frequently polish or sand and refinish the floors. Engineered flooring also has a much longer lifespan than carpeting.

Caring For Your Engineered Wood Floors

Engineered flooring has simple maintenance and care requirements. As a low maintenance flooring option, it just requires regular sweeping. A lightweight broom is the best choice. You can also use a damp mop, such as a Swiffer. This type of mopping lifts dirt, sticky messes and dust off the floor. Occasional deep cleaning with a solution designed for wood floors will help the wood veneer maintain its strength, shine and durability. In most households, the deep cleaning only needs to be done once or twice each year. Use a damp rag, mop or sponge for the deep cleaning. Avoid rubbing anything abrasive on the flooring, such as steel wool. Don’t use any oil-based waxes or soaps. Floor mats and rugs with a latex backing can leave stain or residue on the engineered floor’s wood veneer.
