    • More and more home and building owners are trying to keep up with the costly maintenance of residential and commercial establishments. With the cost of materials reaching the sky, it is as if re-designing or renovating homes and buildings nowadays are luxuries and no longer a necessity.

      However, one way to maintain the elegance of a home or building is to sustain its magnificent look without the cost. One way is to enhance home flooring. Nowadays, many home owners, developers, and building owners are putting hard wood and engineered wood floors in the buildings for one primary reason: people are attracted to nice-looking and well maintained wood floors.

      Studies have shown that homes and buildings with wood floors encourage more traffic than those with carpet or tile. Wood, however, requires considerably more maintenance than carpet or tile, and occasionally restorative efforts are required to keep wood floors in premium condition. To answer questions that often arise regarding restorative efforts, a basic understanding of the nature of wood, such as hard wood and engineered, is necessary.

      Hard wood is a actually a general term used to name a lumber or veneer produced from broad-leafed or deciduous trees in contrast to soft wood, which is produced from pine or coniferous trees.

      Basically, trees with leaves give us hard wood, while trees with needles give us soft wood.

      When used in enhancing homes or buildings, hard wood can be used as engineered wood. This pertains to an assembly made by bonding layers of veneer or lumber with an adhesive. Usually, it is a three layered structure namely the face, the core, and the back. The layers are locked together to improve dimensional stability by alternating the wood grain at each level.

      At some point, wooden floors, even hard wood, need restoration. Clearly, damage to wood floors is normally caused by moisture. Floods, spills and incorrect maintenance can easily result in damage to your wood floors. Fixtures, dragged across floors by unknowing visitor or a child playing with his toys maybe, can cause numerous scratches and marks. Even the foot traffic itself will often damage a wood floor.

      Indentation will occur from the heels of shoes, and even more so from protruding nail-heads. Clearly, there are times when restorative efforts are required.
