You take a look at your floor and know immediately: this needs to be replaced. However, do you choose to buy new carpet, or do you consider hardwood installation? We suggest the hardwood floor. Yes, hardwood flooring is our specialty, but consider the following facts when making your decision:
Hardwood floors are clean
Carpet is a nightmare for allergies! It grabs onto dirt, dust, and allergens that can shift down towards the pad of the carpet. Once they reach the floor, they are impossible to clean until the carpet is removed. Hardwood floors do not hold onto allergens, and a broom and mop can easily clean away any dirt and dust that might settle.
Hardwood floors last
Carpet deteriorates easily and can appear matted and dirty in just a few years. It is also almost impossible to repair your carpet; once it is damaged, it needs to be replaced. On the other hand, hardwood floors are durable. They are easy to repair and do not require the room to get a completely new floor when a small portion of the wood is damaged. On average, they also last longer than carpet before needing maintenance. Yes, they can get scratched and scuffed, but those flaws are easily sanded and buffed out.
Hardwood floor installation can cost more than carpet initially, but the payoff will be worth it. Many homebuyers look for hardwood floors when purchasing a new home, so installing a beautiful new floor from Texas Hardwood Flooring can help your resale value increase dramatically.
