Hardwood Floors to Last a Lifetime

Posted in Railway Sleeper News by Admin on April 21st 2016


Did you know that hardwoods have been the construction wood of choice for centuries? Classic, durable, easy to maintain and hypoallergenic, they are considered as the flooring surface elite.

Hardwood flooring is usually made of oak; pieces of lumber are cut into different shapes and sizes such as squares, rectangles and planks to create various materials to design floors. 

Safe and Clean

Hardwoods are extremely resistant to fungal and insect attacks. By installing hardwood floors in your home or office, you can contribute to a healthy living environment.

Since it can be cleaned more thoroughly than carpet, hardwood helps to eliminate all irritating allergens and germs that can be attributed to different health problems.

Less Maintenance

Aside from being safe, hardwood floors only require minimal maintenance. Since hardwoods are much more resistant to spills and stains, they are much easier to clean; hardwood floor cleaners are recommended.

You can also refinish them multiple times to bring back their original shine.


Hardwood floors are very versatile, giving your home a classic ambiance. Providing a certain rustic charm that works well in modern or traditional settings, there are also different stains, varnishes and finishes available to suit every taste.

Environmentally Friendly

Today, hardwood floors are considered to be one of the most environmentally-friendly flooring options available on the market because they are renewable.

Hardwood flooring production gives off minimum emissions of methane, nitrogen oxide and other particulates compared to other flooring alternatives and as they can be maintained easily, they could literally last a lifetime…! This means fewer raw materials, less energy and a reduction in natural resources.
