Benefits of Hardwood Flooring

Flooring, cabinetry, and millwork produced from American hardwoods are as much part of the American dream as a white picket fence. The architectural detail, beauty, and total asking warmth they offer are often what make a house a home. However, there's more. The American Hardwood Information Center wants you to truly know that hardwoods also help improve the air quality in the places you spend your time.

We have totally seen those tiny particles floating around in a beam of sun. Those culprits are frequently the cause of several indoor allergies which affect nearly 40 million Americans. Did you understand that to ease allergy symptoms, one of the first recommendations allergists make would be to remove wall-to-wall carpeting in favor of solid floor surfaces, like hardwoods?

Hardwood products offer help!

"Allergists understand that carpeting is an enormous group net for dust and dust mites, live and dead insects and their waste products, mold, and animal dander," says Dr. Dana V. Wallace, immediate past president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI). "Chemical treatments and professional steam cleaning will not remove all allergens, and are only effective for a brief time. But all of these allergens can be decreased with hardwood flooring."

Wood floors provide a natural warm and attractiveness, feeling. Hardwoods improve the appearance of any room and lay the basis for everlasting elegance that continues to grow in value through recent years.

Wood is really a natural sustainable, recyclable resource that's ecologically friendly. Wood floors have come quite a distance through recent years.
