Your Brentwood realtor will show you many houses as you narrow your choices down to which one will be your new home. One of the houses you saw had hardwood floors. You grew up in a home with carpet and the idea of having hardwood floors is new to you. You are a little hesitant about owning a home with hardwood floors as you know very little about them. Well, here are some advantages to having hardwood floors.

Easy to Clean

Not only are hardwood floors easy to clean, very little debris actually accumulates on them. Perhaps, this is why they are so easy to clean. Basically, all you need to do is vacuum or sweep your hardwood floors and then go over them with a wet mop. Just think about how many hours you spend vacuuming your carpet each week.wood

Strong and Durable

Hardwood floors will serve you much longer than carpet and other flooring types. In fact, they are so durable, they can last for generations.

Air Quality

Because hardwood floors don’t trap dust, dander, pollen and other allergens, they will actually increase the air quality in your home. In fact, hardwood floors are often a must for those who suffer severe allergies.

Spill the Wine

Wine spilled on your carpet is simply a disaster, likely leaving you with a permanent stain. But spill anything on your hardwood floor and all you need to do is simply wipe it up. No staining here.
