One of the most attractive and durable flooring options is hardwood flooring. Hardwood floors come in a variety of colors, grains and types. In the past hardwood floors were finished with a type of paint solution that required a lot of maintenance because the floor had to be polished often in order to maintain its attractiveness.
Today’s hardwood floors are finished and sealed, and upkeep is easier because the shine is sealed right into the floor. Depending on the quality of the wood, the sealing process and installation, one may not have to work as hard at maintaining the luster of the flooring. However even today’s hardwood flooring will still require some type of cleaning to retain its original beauty.
