Types Of Flooring
Engineered Wood Flooring
This is manufactured using three to nine layers of different wood veneers. Top layer consists of high quality wood and sub layers can be of same or different class.

Solid Wood flooring
These are thick and are composed of solid wood from top to bottom. The benefits of this kind of flooring is that it can be easily installed on any kind of surface and can be sanded and refinished umpteen times. Solid wood floors cost you little more than the engineered counterparts. Engineered floors are easy to maintain compared to solid wood floors.
So you have wooden floor? Or planning to get? Wondering what it takes to clean and maintain them here is a piece of advice to help you.
Cleaning your floor is important and it depends on the environment of your home. If you have kids and pets at home then you need to clean it more often to prevent scratches. Use a vacuum cleaner without a beater bar.
Water is an enemy of hard wood floors. Never put water directly on the floor instead use a damp mop if it is recommended by the professionals who installed your flooring or by the experts at the local hardware store.
Wipe away liquid spills immediately, else they penetrate and damage the flooring.
