What are the benefits of wood flooring?

Though hardwood flooring may be more expensive than carpet, it has many benefits and is currently one of the most popular flooring options.

Easy to Clean & Repair

With hardwood floors, spills can be easily wiped up, and generally won’t stain the floor the way that a carpet would be stained. Even if damage is done to your floor, it is easy enough to repair part of the floor instead of replacing the whole thing. Allergens and other matter also don’t get trapped in hardwood flooring the way they do with carpeting.


A properly installed wood floor can last for a long time, even generations. They can withstand a lot of traffic, and age pretty gracefully. Even if they do get damaged, they very rarely have to be entirely replaced. A good sanding and refinishing can often make them as good as new.

Low Maintenance

No vacuum required! Keeping a hardwood floor clean is simple. Just remember to sweep it and wash it regularly.


Wood is a naturally occurring resource, so it’s a smart choice for your home if you’re trying to keep it green. Bamboo is a popular flooring option as well, since it’s a fast-growing type of wood. It also uses less energy to produce a wood floor.


When you get down to it, wood floors just look good. They’re aesthetically pleasing, and you can get all sorts of different colors and styles of wood. It’s an elegant, classic flooring material that won’t go out of style like shag carpeting.
