Deciding on which type of flooring to install may be a very difficult decision to make. Each flooring has its own advantages and disadvantages. To select the most appropriate flooring it is only proper that you conduct your research and weigh the benefits you will get from the floor material you choose. The number of people using wood flooring has been on the rise and is still rising. Wood flooring is quite popular and this is because of its many benefits.
Below are some of its benefits.
It is cheap when compared some of the other alternatives. The initial cost is not as high plus you will rarely have to incur costs associated with replacement of the floor.
Easy to maintain and clean.
With the emergence of new technologies wood stains are a thing of the past. The wood is modified in such a way that it does not get stained easily. Regular cleaning is hence made easy as it can be simply done by a vacuum cleaner or just by regular sweeping. You do not have to buy very expensive products to help you in your cleaning.
There is a wide variety to choose from.
In Singapore there is a wide variety of trees growing there. This in turn means there are various options to choose from if you decide to go for wood flooring. You are not limited by the number of types of flooring available and you can comfortably choose flooring that suits your tastes and preferences.
Healthy, comfortable and hygienic.
Some floor types tend to collect a lot of dirt and dust. Especially dust mites which have been known to cause asthma in children. With wood flooring you will not experience this problem and it naturally improves the air quality in your home.
Also at times there may be significant temperature changes in Singapore. Wood floor will ensure that you feel comfortable since it is not greatly affected by temperature changes. You will easily keep warm if it is cold outside and vice versa.
Gives your home better structural stability.
Singapore tends to have moist humid conditions which mean that your floor may be subject to a lot of expansion and contraction. Wood floors with rubber in the core layer will be of great benefit to you since they experience minimal changes in size and thus ensure that your home is very stable.
Wood is a renewable product and therefore does not pollute the environment. The wood used to make floors is usually from old ships and warehouses. It is then recycled and modified a bit to be used in homes. This is putting the wood to proper use and it helps conserve the environment since more trees do not have to be cut.
Floors made of wood can last for decades without needing to be replaced. They are therefore a great choice for you and your family if you plan on staying in Singapore for a long time. Your floors will always be in tip top condition and you won’t have to spend time away from home so that the floor can be replaced.
