Wood floors
« on: May 04, 2014, 10:33:52 AM »
We have decided to look into getting hardwood floors for the house. Specifically to replace the carpeted areas. Any place with tile stays that way because of water, etc. Originally we were looking at bamboo, but I'm having second thoughts about it now after reading some horror stories about bamboo (specifically from lumber liquidators) from some manufacturers. I think I'm suffering from information overload.

Have you looked at the new ceramic tiles that are made to look like timbered flooring?

Easy maintenance, easy to repair should one get damaged. Holds the heat in the winter, holds the cool in the summer.

I haven't seen those. However they would have to be a zero grout line for them to be acceptable by my wife. I'm not sure she want to steam clean the entire house one day per week either. I don't maker do that either, the OCD does.  :-\

I'l check it out though.

Best thing we ever bought was an industrial mop bucket with a hospital grade (removable, washable) mop. Makes the big cleaning - which I don't do every week - easier. I use a Swiffer type thing but with a reusable cloth head weekly, daily, whenever. I vacuum my hard floors quite a bit and always before I wash them. Most of what I have is dust and dog fur.
