You’re considering getting hardwood floors installed. But you still have a lot of questions. Don’t be afraid to ask them. A reputable flooring company like Sequoia will be happy to address all your questions and concerns. Here are some of the most common questions we get. Hopefully, our answers will help you make the choice that’s right for your home.
What type of flooring should I get?
At Sequoia, we offer a wide range of quality flooring products—from the finest hardwoods to luxury vinyl tile. With hardwood floors, we can help you choose the grain, stain and plank width that’s right for each particular room where you want to have it installed.
How do I maintain the beautiful look and feel of my hardwood floors?
It’s actually very easy to keep your hardwood floors clean. Once a week, vacuum or use a dry mop to pick up grit. Check our blog for cleaning tips. When in doubt, always consult with professionals to ensure that your floors will last for years to come.
What are some of the advantages of hardwood floors vs. carpeting?
Hardwood floors are a very popular choice because they’re classic looking and give your home added charm and character. They complement any décor; you won’t have to worry about carpet shades that don’t match.
Wood floors are cooler in the summer, easy to clean and very durable, too.
If someone in your family suffers from allergies and/or asthma, wood floors are a much better choice because they don’t trap allergens. So you’ll breathe easier.
Hardwood floors are also an excellent choice for pet owners. Dog and cat hair will get into carpet fibers, which can cause odors. Also, sometimes if a dog or cat’s nails aren’t trimmed, they can catch on the carpet.
Wood floors are a preferred choice for people with disabilities because a wheelchair can move much easier across a wood floor. Someone with physical challenges can walk more easily across a wood floor, too.
Most importantly, hardwood floors add more value to your home.
What should I look for in a wood floor retailer/installer?
When choosing a hardwood floor installer, you’ll want to choose the most experienced professionals in the industry. Of course you’ll want to make the most cost-effective choice, and Sequoia can advise you on all of your options. When you talk to a floor retailer, you should ask about cost, timeliness of installation and what you can expect. For instance, depending on the floor style you choose, you might have some minimal disruption in your home, such as dust and debris. You may not be able to use certain rooms for a short period of time. These are things you’ll want to know up front. At Sequoia, we’ll talk to you about what you can expect when purchasing and installing your new floor. No matter whom you choose, be sure you talk with professionals who won’t hesitate to give you the information you need.
