Maintenance of Hardwood Floors
New technology in stains and finishes call for regular cleaning that takes little more than sweeping or vacuuming, with occasional use of a professional wood floor-cleaning product. Wood floors are ecologically friendly and both renewable and recyclable. And, because wood does not collect dust and other allergens, many leading health associations agree that wood floors are the perfect choice for a healthy home.
Wood floors come Factory Finished, Unfinished, Solid, Engineered, Strip, Plank, Parquet and Acrylic Impregnated, and in a rainbow of colors to fit any decor. You can achieve unique, one-of-a-kind looks with custom stains and finishes.
The appearance of the wood determines its "grade" All grades are equally strong and serviceable, but each affords you a different look. Clear wood is free of defects, though it may have minor imperfections.
- Select wood is almost clear, but contains some natural characteristics such as knots and color variations.
- Common wood (No. 1 and No. 2) has more natural characteristics such as knots and color variations than either clear or select grades, and often is chosen because of these natural features and the character they bring to a room.
- First grade wood has the best appearance, natural color variations and limited character marks.
- Second grade wood is variegated in appearance with varying sound wood characteristics of species.
- Third grade wood is rustic in appearance allowing all wood characteristics of the species.
The angle at which a board is cut determines how the finished product looks.
- Plainsawn is the most common cut. The board contains more variation than the other two cuts because grain patterns resulting form the growth rings are more obvious.
- Quartersawn produces less board feet per log than plainsawing and is therefore more expensive. Quartersawn wood twists and cups less and wears more evenly.
- Riftsawn is similar to quartersawing, but the cut is made at a slightly different angle

Buying the right carpet for your home involves more than finding a style in the color you like. You first will need to consider your lifestyle, location, material, construction, and upkeep.
When shopping, think function first. As yourself a few questions:
What is this room used for?
How much traffic does it get?
Does the room receive a lot of sunlight?
Does the light change during the day?
Is it next to indoor or outdoor spaces?
How often am I likely to vacuum it?
Understanding a few simple basics about carpet will help you make the right choices for your lifestyle and budget.
Textured Plush - Most decoratively versatile. Textured surfaces help hide footprints and vacuum marks. Add casual beauty to any room. Preferred style for busy households. A great "whole house" carpet.
Saxony -Refined surface. Works well with traditional interiors. Ideal for living and dining rooms.
Frieze - Forms a "curly" textured surface because yarns are extremely twisted. Has an informal look. Helps minimize footprints and vacuum marks.
Plush - Has a dense luxurious feel. Shows footprints and vacuum marks easily. Best for low traffic areas and formal dining rooms.
Level Loop Pile - Here loops are the same height, creating an informal look. This style generally lasts long time in high-traffic areas. Many of today's popular Berber styles are level loop styles with flecks of a darker color on a lighter background. This is a good choice for contemporary to cottage furnishings.
Multi-Level Loop Pile - Or patterned loop pile: This style usually has two or three different loop heights to create pattern effects, providing durability and a more casual look.
Cut-Loop Pile - This carpet style combines cut and looped yarns. It provides variety of surface textures, including sculptured effects of squares, chevrons and swirls. The multicolor effects hide soil and stains.
Facts On Fiber
The type of fiber used and the way the carpet is constructed determine how well the carpet will stand up to spills, pets and daily traffic. The better the fiber and the denser it is packed, the better the carpet will perform. Approximately 97 percent of all carpet uses synthetic fibers designed to feature style, easy maintenance and outstanding value. We've listed four (4) types of carpet pile fibers.
Nylon - Nylon is the most popular and represents two-thirds of the pile fibers used in the United States. Nylon fibers are wear resistant, resilient and provide brilliant color. Nylon fibers withstand the weight and movement of furniture and are generally good for all traffic areas. Nylon is also a great choice for the home because it resists soils and stains.
Olefin - Olefin fibers are strong, resist wear and permanent stains and are easily cleaned. These fibers are colorfast. Olefin is often used in both indoor and outdoor installations because of its resistance to moisture and mildew.
Polyester - Polyester is noted for luxurious, soft 'hand' when used in thick, cut-pile textures. It has excellent color clarity and retention, cleans easily and is inherently stain resistant.
Wool - Noted for its luxury and performance, wool is soft, has a high bulk and is available in many colors and patterns. Generally, wool is somewhat more expensive than synthetic fibers.
Cut Pile - Still one of today's most popular constructions, cut pile achieves its durability through the type of fiber used, density of tufts and the amount of twist in the yarn. Highly twisted yarn will hold its shape longer, making it a smart choice for high-traffic areas.
