Cherokee Floor Covering's Hardwood Flooring FAQ

Hardwood flooring has long been considered the king of floor coverings thanks to its beautiful aesthetic and physical qualities. It's a material that's been in use for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years and in that time a lot has been said about it. Like many things, the more that gets said about it, the more confusing it becomes as opinion blends with fact.

Well, we thought it might be a good idea to address some of the common questions we get about hardwood, and nail some answers down once and for all. Here are the answers to a few the questions we receive from our clients, that seem to pop up again and again.

Is it Worth the Price?

Many people's first reaction to hardwood flooring is to recoil at the apparently high price. While it is true that the number on the sticker is higher than many other materials, that number doesn't reflect some of the qualities that make hardwood flooring an investment, not an expense.

Hardwood flooring is an investment because it offers supreme durability and extreme longevity. We can guarantee that you have never walked into an historical building, and marveled at the 300-year old carpeting. Hardwood, on the other hand, features prominently in many historical buildings, and can last that long or longer with proper maintenance. Imagine how much money you could save by not replacing your floors for a hundred years or more!

Is it Difficult to Maintain?

All of that mystique that's built up around wood flooring has led people to believe that it requires some special treatment, above and beyond the requirements of other materials. this simply isn't true. Wood is one of the easiest materials out there to maintain.

All you need to do to keep your hardwood looking great, is to protect it from gouges from sharp impacts or dragging furniture, attend to spills ASAP, and sweep from time to time. It really couldn't be easier!
