Hardwood Floor Protection

Protect the Wood Floors In Your Home

Humidity control problems can damage your home's hardwood floors. Wood is hygroscopic meaning that it both reacts to the relative humidity of its surrounding environment to find equilibrium. As your home's relative 

Hardwood Flooring

humidity fluctuates, your home's hardwood floors can both expand and contract. 

In dry air, your hardwood floor splits and cracks since the air is sucking moisture from the material. If your skin is dry, your home's hardwood floors likely are too. 

In high humidity, your hardwood floors are prone to rot and warpage. In this instance, the wood is removing the moisture from the air. Over time, the moisture will continue to build causing your hardwood floors to shift. 

According to HomeAdvisor, an online referral repair company, the average cost of repairing wood floors is $922, or $3-$6 per sq. ft. 

To avoid costly repairs, install a whole-house humidifier and whole-house dehumidifier to keep your hardwood floors protected.
