Humidity and Hardwood Floors

We'd like to remind our customers about how to deal with the recent humidity in the Midwest if you have hardwood floors in your home. Moisture in a home can completely ruin your floors over time. Read on if you'd like to know just what you should do in these humid Summer days.

Humidity can ruin a hardwood floor over time. It might not be apparent to the naked eye, but it can definitely cause serious damage. Moisture harms wood over time, but there is something that any homeowner can do to avoid the problem. Air conditioning can work miracles for your personal comfort as well as your hardwood floors.

We recommend leaving the air conditioning on constantly, in order to make sure that your hardwood floors are not going to be exposed to the constant humidity that this summer has given us. You may want to check what the current humidity levels are with any weather app. It's normal for humidity to drop down at night if you prefer to sleep with the windows open.

Air conditioning does more than just cool. It removes moisture from the air. That's why it's so important in your home. It's also important that you make sure to factor in maintenance costs when it comes to your hardwood floors. Your floors are a major investment and you should treat them accordingly.
