Unfinished hardwood allows the home owner to have their floor installed and finished on site just as it had been done for hundreds of years in the past. This process allows maximum flexibility to the home owner when it comes to selecting grades, sizes, and stain colours of hardwood floor. An unfinished hardwood floor is still the preferred choice of many custom home builders and the floors installed and finished in this manner offer a smooth overall look to the floor. DM Flooring Pro Inc. offers a large inventory of unfinished floors in many domestic and exotic species in a variety of plank sizes.

Footwear

Do not wear high heels and sport shoes like cleats on a wood floor. According to the National Wood Flooring Association, "A 125-pound woman walking in high heels has an impact of 2,000 pounds per square inch. An exposed heel nail can exert up to 8,000 pounds per square inch. This kind of impact can dent any floor surface."
Placing a shoe rack by the entrance door is a good way to avoid the common mistake of wearing the wrong shoes inside. It can also save you money in the long run and expand the beauty and life of your floor.

Furniture and Appliances

Protect your wood flooring using soft plastic or gel glides under the legs of your heavy furniture to avoid scratching and dents.
When moving furniture, do not slide it across the wood. Pick up the furniture completely, or place Masonite or plywood under the piece to help distribute the weight of the object to prevent scratching.
For light pieces, it is always a good idea to place sheets or clean blankets under the furniture that is to be moved.

The Tale of Hardwood Floors & Humidity
Depending on where you live, summertime might bring more than backyard BBQs, fresh vegetables and pool-time. Summer can also bring high humidity. If you have hardwood floors, there are a few things you need to know about hardwood and humidity levels to keep your floor in great shape.
Here’s the Hardwood Golden Rule: With solid or engineered hardwoods, you should aim to keep humidity levels in your home between 30% and 50%.
High Humidity Levels
If the humidity hits above 50%, you’re opening up a chance for moisture to seep into the wood. Too much moisture and the floor boards could begin to swell. This swelling can create pressure between the boards, which can cause the boards to warp or cup. This is true for both solid hardwoods and engineered hardwoods. Remember, while engineered hardwoods tend to be more stable than solid hardwoods, they are still susceptible to moisture.
Low Humidity Levels
While high moisture levels can damage your floor, it’s not the only thing to watch out for. If the humidity level drops below 30%, low moisture levels can also be a problem. Low levels can cause the wood to dry out, which, in turn, could weaken the wood, causing the floor to splinter. It could also lead the floor to “check”, meaning that it could split along the grain. This can also damage the finish, which would become an issue during your regular maintenance.
Keeping Humidity Levels in Check
So how you can prevent potential damage? Check the humidity levels in the rooms where you have your hardwood floors installed using a humidistat or a hydrometer – they’re both available in hardware stores or home centers. If the humidity levels are beyond the 30% – 50% range, then make adjustments. If the levels are too high, use a dehumidifier or turn up the air conditioning. Either will lower the humidity levels. If you need to raise the humidity level, try a humidifier to boost the overall moisture in the room.
By maintaining the humidity levels in your home, you will help to ensure your floor remains covered by our warranties and keep it in shape to perform its best.
Routine Cleaning
Routine cleaning of your hardwood require nothing more than a soft bristle brush, a soft floor vacuum and periodical cleaning with professional wood cleaning products supplied by your hardwood specialist.
Do not use tile floor or sheet vinyl care products on your hard wood floors. These products cause the wood to become slippery and dull.
It is also not a good idea to wet mop your wood floor. Standing water causes warping, discoloration and can dull your finish.
If you do receive spots and spills, wipe the spill immediately with a damp cloth.
Do not let sand and dirt build up in high traffic areas. These can cause scratches over time.
