There is a lot of misinformation surrounding the topic of hardwood floors. It's natural for half-truths to form around a topic like hardwood floors because it's not something that most homeowners deal with a lot. By that, we mean that most homeowners seek out professional help when they need some work done to their hardwood floors. When we talk to our customers for the first time, a lot of the same types of myths come up. We'd like to mention some of them in the hopes that you can avoid falling in some of the most common traps.
Hardwood flooring is just like any other industry in that there are good and bad actors. Most professionals will be honest with you about their work, but occasionally there is a bad actor that is going to make it difficult for the customer to know if they are getting the short end of the straw. This is where the National Wood Flooring Association comes into play. The NWFA serves as a great resource for anyone to use if they want to educate themselves about hardwood floors.
