The meaning of the term “acclimation” depends on the context, but the central idea is to make sure the heat and humidity of a room is favourable to maintaining the longevity of the flooring inside it. Some installers will recommend leaving solid hardwood planks in a room for a certain period of time before installing them so that they can adjust to the conditions of the space, but opinions on this process vary.

In order to be sure that you’re in need of a flooring replacement, it’s a good idea to try and spot some of the most common signs that an overhaul is needed. Structural problems, for instance, are what you should look for first. Subfloor damage or creaking and movement due to gaps are not the kinds of issues you solve with another refinish. Speaking of refinishes, how many have you had? There’s only so many you can squeeze out of even the best floors! http://goo.gl/yVZKAB

The process of choosing the right wood flooring involves considering a number of conditions. Aside from high-traffic activity due to pets, family, or friends, few things have a greater effect on wood flooring integrity than temperature and moisture. You wouldn’t turn a blind eye to a big spill or a pair of stiletto heels walking on your floor, so you should also be attentive to your interior environment! http://goo.gl/Er0p2d
