Everyone knows that wood flooring and moisture don't mix, so it's essential to work around the situation when possible. For example, solid hardwood flooring is never a candidate for below-grade installation, but engineered flooring is a great alternative.

Understanding your options is a great way to ensure your best remodel. Here are some facts about wood floors and moisture that could help you easily make the right decisions.

Protecting your floors against moisture


One of the first services you’ll receive during your remodel is the acclimation process, which ensures that humidity levels in the wood and the installation environment are level. For example, wood floors in Omaha, NE, that have been acclimated are less likely to warp, crack, split, or peel after installation, which ensures a much better experience.

They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so ensuring water issues don’t happen is a great place to start. Wipe up spills immediately and use area rugs in spaces that lead inside from outdoors to catch wet or muddy footprints.

Adding the proper sealant is another way to get outstanding results and protect your floors from daily wear. Be sure to ask about wood flooring products that fit your other needs, so your flooring experience is everything you want and need it to be.
