Frequently Asked Wood Questions
What is engineered wood flooring?
Engineered flooring is pre-finished and comes in long strips or planks. It consists of a top layer of solid wood, known as the veneer with several layers of criss-crossed laminated wood beneath it, all glued together to form a plywood-like sandwich base. It can be stapled, glued or "floated" down.
Why should I choose wood flooring?
Wood flooring provides a naturally beautiful effect which gives the house a warm feeling. Pure wood flooring is environmentally friendly and can often resist wear and tear better than other types of flooring. Wood flooring is a worthwhile investment, adding value to your home and is suitable in the hallway and living areas, where its beauty can be fully appreciated.

How do I care for my wood flooring?
With just a little regular care, your wood flooring can go decades without needing to be sanded and refinished, or even needing a new coat of varnish. Below are a few simple guidelines, to ensure you get the most out of your wood flooring:
- To avoid the wood becoming scratched and to avoid discolouration, vacuum frequently. This will protect the finish as well as keep up its appearance. Use an attachment with a brush or a felt surface that runs along the floor. Attachments with rotating brushes or a beater bar can scratch the finish.
- To prevent scratching, avoid wearing high heels in your home and fit your furniture feet with protective pads.
- To remove the build-up of hairspray on your wood floor, wipe immediately with a damp cloth. For a more thorough cleanup, spray with non-ammonia window cleaner.
- Keep your wood flooring out of the rain, by keeping your windows and doors shit if raining. Rain can penetrate deep into the wood and can ruin the finish and stain it.
- When moving furniture in or out of the room, lay a piece of plywood sheeting along the route and push or "walk" the appliances out along the plywood path.
- To avoid the discolouration or fading of your wood flooring from strong light, ensure that no area of the wood floor receives too much direct sunlight. Use curtains/blinds or a UV coating for the windows.
How do I clean my wood flooring?
To figure out the best cleaning method for your floor you need to find out how your wood floors are sealed or finished, which is usually either wax or urethane. No matter what type of finish you have, below are a few simple guidelines, to clean your wood flooring:
- Avoid using ammonia, or harsh, abrasive cleaners.
- Avoid using furniture sprays which can leave a slippery, waxy build-up.
- Persistent stains or grease spots are going to require a professional cleaner such as oil soap, but make sure to test it on a small area of floor first. Use a specific wood floor cleaner or make your own solution by mixing about a quarter of a cup of pH-neutral soap to a bucket of warm water.
- Use a sparing amount of water to clean and ensure your cloth or mop is not soaking wet.
- To rinse, repeat a second time but only with plain water.
- To avoid scratching your wood flooring, use wood-appropriate cleaning tools, such as soft, non-scratching fibrous cloths. i.e. microfiber cloths.
What is the difference between laminate and flooring?
Laminate flooring is a hard surface that is made with recycled hardwood. It is fibre-based product that is built up in layers when manufactured, and is clicked together into place. Laminate is durable but because it is made from recycled hardwood, it is not waterproof. If water is left on a laminate floor it will eventually get into the fibres, which will swell and cause imperfection. Therefore it should not be installed in areas that may get a lot of water or humidity. e.g. the basement or bathroom.
Vinyl flooring is a synthetic material that looks like tile or hardwood and is glued down directly to the floor underneath. There are many types of vinyl including: Vinyl sheets: Vinyl sheet flooring is usually 12ft in width and is cut to size Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT): Upscale vinyl with a very real effect Vinyl composite type: Extremely durable and used mainly in a commercial or industrial setting. Unlike laminate flooring, most vinyl is waterproof or water resistant (this depends on the exact type of vinyl). However, they will usually not withstand flood. Whereas laminates are hard and inflexible, most vinyls are soft and flexible. So vinyl flooring can tolerate floors that are sloped or have humps in it as it will just be glued right on top of it. Because vinyl is flexible, it is critical that the floor underneath is smooth (not level, but smooth), so you often need to do a couple of layers of skim coats to smooth out the floor underneath.
