SERVICE OVERVIEW

Wood flooring is the most abundantly renewable flooring material available. The trees used to make wood floors are produced in a factory called a forest by a renewable source of energy called the sun. Sustainable forest management makes it possible to harvest wood without any serious impact on the environment because trees are a renewable resource that can be replaced time and time again.

Check out the environmental facts about wood floors:

  • Average annual net growth for hardwoods is greater than average annual removals (Source: US Department of Agriculture Forest Service)
  • Indoor air quality is better with wood floors (Source: US Environmental Protection Agency)
  • Wood is a carbon neutral product that produces oxygen during its growth cycle and stores carbon during its service life (Source: University of Wisconsin Wood Products Program Solid Wood Flooring Life Cycle Analysis)
  • Wood floors use less water and energy to produce than other flooring options (Source: University of Wisconsin Wood Products Program Solid Wood Flooring Life Cycle Analysis)
  • At the end of its service life, wood flooring can be burned as fuel or recycled (Source: University of Wisconsin Wood Products Program Solid Wood Flooring Life Cycle Analysis)
  • Wood floors last hundreds of years, so won’t need to be replaced as often as other flooring options (Source: National Association of Home Builders)
  • While it takes most hardwood trees 40-60 years to mature, the inventory planted today won’t be needed for 100-plus years (Source: National Wood Flooring Association)

POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • How many coats do we apply and how long will it take?

    We apply three coats of low VOC polyurethane timber floor coating made by Enviro Floors – a base coat and then two top coats. The second coat will look a bit rough, we call that grain raising, so in preparation for the 3rd coat we lightly sand and vacuum ready for the application of 3rd coat. Drying time is approximately 4 to 8 hours per coat and you can move furniture back 24 – 48 hours after the last coat depending on the weather.
    All furniture must be lifted, rugs and mats can be placed onto the floor after 2 weeks. Put felt pads under all furniture.

  • Why are Polyurethane water based timber coatings better?

    Polyurethane water based timber finishes contain water instead of solvents and are therefore better for the environment, being low in VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) and easier to clean up. Brushes and other application equipment can be washed up in the water, whereas those used for solvent-based finishes need to be washed up in turpentine or thinners. Polyurethane water-based products are also quicker to dry, which often means you can apply all the coats required within one day.

  • What is the durability like?

    Maintaining and caring for such a valuable asset as your floor can make a substantial impact on how long it will look great for, and also how long it may be before a new refurbishment coat may be required.
    The durability of the coating on timber floors varies as to the amount of traffic and the bringing of outside grit into the house. These are a few handy tips to remember; it is always a good idea to have entrance matting at the door so that outside grit can be brushed off before entering the house. Removing outdoor shoes and only wearing indoor shoes inside helps to reduce surface scratches.

    When it comes to wood, too much and too hot water is a no-no and can ruin your floors! Excessive wet patches can stain timber flooring and can even result in expanded and warped boards. The correct mop and mopping technique will prolong the life and beauty of your wooden floors, protecting your investment.
    A mop water solution that is! Many people recommend using just water and vinegar.
    If you care about your floors, don’t add anything harsh to the mop water like bleach or ammonia. Using a dedicated wood floor solution or just a little soap in the mop water will ensure dirt is better lifted and bring back that beautiful timber gleam.
