Wood flooring is still good. But there are those who may wish to argue that there are other surfaces that are far more superior. They are not entirely wrong; and there are one or two valid reasons being presented by them. Two reasons stand out. One that wood flooring is too expensive for them. But is it really? And two, that wood flooring is too time consuming and cumbersome to maintain. That is not a reflection on the wood.
The wood does have a certain degree of ability to withstand some force. But placing wood in a factory would have been abstruse if not downright abnormal. Placing wood within the home environment of course does make sense. The foot traffic is as light as a feather in comparison to that encountered in a mall. In any event, the property owner, if he really does care that much for his wood will be making sure that it is well-maintained.
And that it is properly cleaned at the required intervals. Wood should be dusted at least once a day. This requires very little effort and there is no need to waste power by plugging in a vacuum cleaner. You could do a better job dusting or sweeping your wooden floors with brooms that have light, soft bristles. Cleaning with soap and water is also easy but does require a little more care. Be sure not to use detergents that could scratch the surfaces of the wood floors.
Indeed, those who are completely new to wood will no doubt receive a pocket of easy to follow instructions on how best to care for their wood by their specialist installers. Best of all is that wood is always going to look decorative.
