Wood floors are great because you can always restore them, pending there is no major damage. If you have pet stains, loose/missing boards, termite damage, or other issues- don't panic. These are easy repairs for a flooring professional, like Fabulous Floors.

So, if you have pet stains, slight damage or just want a change of look-consider hardwood floor restoration. It saves money. Yes, it saves money. Most people think hardwood floors are a pain to keep up or that they are expensive to repair. Neither one of these statements are true.

In fact, hardwood floors are easy to clean, host less allergens in a home and they are reasonable when it comes to fixing minor issues or starting a complete restoration job! A great restoration company, like Fabulous Floors, will not try to sell you a whole new set of floors and installation. Why? Because it is a rare occasion when hardwood floors have to be completely redone. It is always better to maintain the integrity of the original hardwood flooring- even if you want to change the design.

Fabulous Floors can have a qualified and pleasant professional answer all of your questions before you make a financial commitment to move forward with a restoration project. But, if you have any questions- please feel free to leave a comment.

TIP! Did you know you can use Pine-Sol® Multi-Surface Cleaner safely wood surfaces? It's true. Just dilute ¼ cup of your favorite Pine-Sol® in one gallon of water in a bucket. Ring out the mop well so you only have a damp mop, not a wet one. Mop your floor with this mixture to a beautiful, shiny glow.

The top two trends this year in hardwood flooring are hand-scraped floors and wide-width planks.

Through the 1800s, hardwood finished surfaces were commonly worked by hand with draw knives. The trend requires the pulling toward the craftsman (or woman) who could scrape thin layers of wood off a piece of lumber. This allowed the top surface to become smooth. However, the scrape marks were left behind, proving for generations to come that a piece of wood had been worked by hand. Now, what was once a flaw is now a treasured trend! Handscrape marks are commonly seen in flooring reclaimed from old structures. These "beauty marks" allow for a distinctive to walk on with your barefoot!

Another trend from the past is wide-width planks. Also from the 1800s, floors that range from 5 to 8 inches wide are making a come back. No longer are the 2-3 inch planks popular. The reason is easy to understand. The larger boards allow a more retro look, which can add value to a home.

Fabulous Floors can help you pick the right style and shade of wood for your home. You don't always have to go with a trend, but know that you do have options when it comes to installing or refinishing hardwood in your home!

The Ten Basic Benefits of Hardwood Floors:

1. The installation is easy. Since hardwood flooring is universal, the installation process is basic. You will not have to hire a specialist, which you often do with those who cut angeled tiles, etc.
2. Hardwood floors are easy to clean. These floors require only weekly vacuuming or a light over-dust with a dry or lightly damp mop.
3. The look of wealth. That's right. Hardwood floors look expensive, when truthfully they're not considering long-term ROI.
4. Strength and durability: These floors standup to high traffic areas and heavy furniture.
5. A great investment: Hardwood floors increase the value of any property, period!
6. Variety: Hardwood floors come with a variety of different styles, finishes, stains.... and more.
7. Better acoustics: A properly installed hardwood floor never gives your property hollow sounds or vibrations.
8. Low maintenance: Hard wood floors do not require the constant maintenance associated with carpet.
9. Healthy indoor air quality: Hardwood floors cut down on allergens and prevent illness.
10. Refinished: Hardwood floors never have to be replaced if kept up properly. And, if you decide you want to change or polish the look fo your hardwood floors, simply have them refinished!
