Optimize your hardwood flooring's longevity by understanding its sensitivity to moisture. Wood's natural tendencies involve absorbing moisture with changes in humidity and temperature. Swelling occurs with increased moisture, and shrinkage follows when moisture decreases. Critical moisture content levels range from 0 to 25 percent for swelling and 25 to 30 percent for shrinkage. Protect your floors against potential moisture challenges with these tips:
Installing hardwood flooring requires attention to detail, making it important to leave it to professionals for the job. Certain key steps, such as an in-home measure and moisture test, are crucial and should never be overlooked. Moisture testing ensures that your subfloors are suitable for hardwood, preventing potential damage over time. Your subfloor should be flat, clean, dry, and free of imperfections. Creating a gap between the planks and the walls is essential to allow the hardwood to naturally expand. It's also important to ensure there are no gaps between the planks themselves, ensuring a seamless surface. Different hardwood constructions may require different installation methods. Leave it to our team of professional installers who will take care of your new floor installation as timely and effectively as possible.
