Why Timber Hardwood Flooring Is Better Than Carpet Installation?

by jacks liam Floor Suppliers
Since hardwood flooring has become immensely popular in terms of flooring solutions, people are not thinking twice about its purchase. They only know that this is popular and hence, can be bought. In other words, maximum buyers have no idea of what are the factors that make it better than several other flooring solutions and even, carpet. Here in this article, let us go through some features of timber hardwood flooring and even structural hardwood posts that make them better or superior than other flooring solutions.

A Green Choice
There is no doubt about the fact that timber hardwood, as compared to chemical-laden carpets is certainly better for our environment. There are a number of factors to consider in terms of the life cycle of these installations like their energy-consumption, water usage, maintenance related issues and so on. In terms of life cycle analysis, timber emerges as the best one in the last because all other flooring solutions like carpet, vinyl flooring, etc. have some drawbacks associated with their names. Overall, keeping the bigger picture in mind, it can be said without any second thoughts that timber hardwood is the most environmentally-friendly selection.

Durability
As far as durability is concerned, this needs a mention here that both timber hardwoods as well as engineered hardwood have more stability and durability to showcase while at work. The fact is that as compared to woven fibre carpet, these solutions are multiple times more durable and robust. The main task of the carpet is to offer a soft and warm feeling under the foot, but on the other hand, timber hardwood is always expected to stand firmly as a durable flooring solution against all odds. The life is short-lived to a few years because carpet fibres weaken, and padding begins to decompose, causing replacement within a decade.

Increase in Home Value
Yes, this is a fact that by installing timber hardwood, as the main floor inside the property, you can enhance the property’s resale value considerably. This is where carpet installation lags behind because it comes with a very limited life duration that can be enhanced marginally with timely care and maintenance. On the other hand, there is this flooring that has a really long life that can be stretched further remarkably with timely care and maintenance. It is said that timber hardwood flooring and structural hardwood beams and posts can have a life of more than a century. Other than this, one more fact is that the wood can be brought back to a brilliant shine when worn while carpet has to be torn up and replaced.

Simple to Maintain
As far as the maintenance is concerned, experts recommend one thing that timber hardwood has to be preserved from moisture and areas, where dampness prevails. This is why it is not recommended for areas such as bathroom, laundry, kitchen and so on. Other than this, with very few simple steps related to maintenance, this flooring solution can be kept in a very good condition for years. This is another USP of this installation when compared to carpet because of installed in high foot traffic areas, the carpet will demand an in-depth cleaning every six months. On the other hand, there is no such issue with wood as it can be swept, vacuumed or mopped without the worry of invasive bacteria or mould.
