Why Wooden Flooring: the only robust floor covering that becomes more beautiful over time

The only robust floor covering that becomes more beautiful over time

Truly, with every little bit of TLC you give your wooden floor, it will reward you by becoming more beautiful. The modern maintenance products are very easy to apply, they will feed the wood and at the same time make it keep its dirt and moist repellent character.

The wax or polish prevents it from drying out - just compare it with your own skin - and no matter how old you wooden floor is, it will stay 'young' and full of vitality.

Why Wooden Flooring: a great factory and free leisure resource

A great factory and free leisure resource

Modern forests, skilfully managed, contain trees of different ages, different species alongside the primary production species. Open spaces in the form of rides, firebreaks and stream side reserves are designed into the forest and, as it is thinned, increasing numbers of under-storey species become established.
While producing timber, these man-made forests also produce picnic spots, lakes and nature trails. Thousands of species of birds, animals and plants call them home. Their air is clean and good to breathe.
The public has free access to 94% of forestland in Europe.

Every time you use wood you are helping to make sure the forests will keep growing. So your children and your children's children will be able to enjoy visiting forests for years and years to come.
(The market for forest products helps finance sustainable forest management.)

Why Wooden Flooring: thinking and investing ahead

Thinking and investing ahead

Like every type of investment the perceived value can go up and down, the stock market comes to mind. Experts on the stock market always tell you to think of the long term profits, it's proven time after time that shares do have a very good ROI over a longer period - 30 to 40 years.

The same can be said of the value of your home. The housing market goes up and down, it has always done this and will always keep doing this. So, invest in brick and mortar for a longer period of time - 30 to 40 years. As seen above, the life-span of quality wooden flooring - 30 to 50 years - keeps pace with this.

Clever home owners and property managers think ahead and invest in their property no matter if house prices go up or down.

Why Wooden Flooring: robust enough for pets

Robust enough for pets

The surface of especially pre-oiled wooden floors are, contrary to believe, not slippery. It gives your pet a sturdy surface, easy to walk on and because most floors are made of hardwood the surface won't easily damage from paws or claws .
If you opt for a brushed surface the softest part from the surface are already removed and gives your pet (lively dogs and cats come to mind) an even more sturdy and almost impossible to damage surface.
