Dry or Wet: Damage to Your Hardwood Floors


In this climate in Denver, hardwood floors are subject to many different types of conditions, the majority being an overall dry climate. Tracking in wet snow and ice will inevitably happen, and your hardwood floors in Denver will eventually be affected by this among other things. Invariably, dryness causes the boards to pull away from each other, creating gaps in between. The alternative being damage from moisture or water will cause the boards to buckle and lose their integrity.
 
Denver flooring companies should always properly acclimate their wood to the climate in which they are being installed. This will prevent the wood from succumbing to the conditions of their new environment and therefore, provide you with a lasting Denver hardwood floor.

Contact your Denver flooring company to learn more about acclimating wood and the best practices for installation.
