5 Steps to Hardwood: Step 1 - Considering the Investment

Published on November 17, 2012

We’re sharing the hard truth in five steps to having new hardwood floors. We're also italicizing puns. Please give a watch to this quick YouTube video, featuring customers who love their choice and why.

Step One: Considering the Investment.
You may think the battle between hardwood floors and carpet is entirely about the look, but there’s much more than meets the eye. If you’re considering trading in your carpet for hardwood or even just switching up the wood you already have, there are a few things to think about. 

Things to consider:

1. Carpet odor over a relatively brief period of time. The dirt and dust it holds onto may not be visible. One of our customers says it best: “With carpet, you never know what’s in there.”

2. If dust and dirt can hide from view, there is an air quality consideration. Sitting or sleeping in a carpeted room usually means particles of trapped debris and residue in the air. If you or a family member has trouble with allergies, carpet isn’t helping that situation.

3. Carpets can require extensive cleaning, especially with pets and children. Once installed, hardwood flooring is a much smaller project to clean and keep your floors looking like new. Bellawood cleaner is a product our experts endorse heavily.

4. Hardwood flooring lasts. In fact, Bellawood's prefinished hardwood comes with a 100 year warranty. How long could you keep a carpet?
